The mating/sex of bees is very interesting and shocking. First of all the “Queen Bee” is selected and worker bees feed the “Queen Bee” special jelly and the virgin “Queen Bee” which survives to adulthood without being killed by her rivals will take a mating flight with a dozen or so male drones (out of tens of thousands eligible bachelors in the colony).
And the drones which do mating with the queen bee are not considered lucky because during sex when the male bee reaches to its climax it’s testicles explodes and it dies. And the genitals remains inside the “Queen Bee”.

When a male honey bee climaxes during sex, his testicles explode and he dies.

Strange as it is, this actually makes evolutionary sense: the snapped-off penis acts as a genital plug to prevent other drones from fertilizing the queen. But tell that to the dead drone whose penis just exploded.
