If Decapodians die after mating, how could Zoidberg fertilize the Wong's caviar and still be living?

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Wow, that's a good question.
Welcome at Peel mpbx3003.

I couldn't think of an answer, so I searched around peel.
The only thread I found doesn't really relate to this question an is really old. here it is.

Perhaps, it isn't the fertilizing itself (just giving away the genetic material), but the act of having sex. And did he have sex with the caviar? I don't know.

Enjoy it at Peel.
Whenever you have questions about Peel, posting on it, or anything else this faq might give you some answers.

well, think about it, if they could fertilize things without having sex then why would they choose to die, wouldn't they just fertilize each other?

Good point.
Well what feels better? Just giving away your sperm, or having good sex? (in case you are old enough ). For me it's having sex.
But when they die having it, it will prove they are dumb, not to choose just giving their genetic material.

Or it's just another crazy tradition they try to keep alive, like clawplough [sp?].

"You mean you have to choose between a life without sex and a horrible death?"
"Yes."
"Tough choice."

"How am I going to get rid of my male jelly now?"
"I'll lend you this."

Obviously it is not the passing of genetic material, but rather sex that is fatal.

Thanks Nixorbo for quoting, I have forgotten that it was explained (well, not really, but it proves it) in the episode.

Maybe the females consume the males? Okay, maybe not. Maybe sexual contact with a female, instead, is fatal. That's some case of Crabs..

Actually, studies have shown that the more action witht he opposite sex, the lower your life expectancy.  In general.

I was thinking the same thing when i was watching That's Lobstertainment, when they show Zoidberg with his mother but if they die after mating, he wouldn't of know his mother unless he was adopted.

I'll see you there Nasty!

Also, maybe the Decapodians get groups of females who vow not to have sex and just be mothers to the offspring.

Or maybe that person was just his aunt or something.

Bender: Shoo! Get away! Hey! What's with the flying jerks?

Zoidberg: They come to feast after the frenzy. Once my species passes on its genes, it dies.

^that exact quote suggests that it's not the sex as it is the passing of the genetic material...
or is it being used as a metaphor for just sex?
So could a decapodian just have sex and not pass on it's genetic material, and live?
both weird and science break the i before e rule...

Well, I've heard both things. But the one about less sex = longer life is just a theory some scientist came up with like 3 months ago. But the one about more sex = longer life seems to be true.

"Nice knowing you!"

I also believe that sex is mor healthy than the opposite, because sex trains several muscles in the body.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Googled and found an article about health and sex on abc-news (if someone is interested in reading it: here it is)

Here are a few quotes from the text:

 
Quote
The best that modern science can say for sexual abstinence is that itís harmless when practiced in moderation. Having regular and enthusiastic sex, by contrast, confers a host of measurable physiological advantages, be you male or female.

...
The Many Benefits of Sex:

- Improved sense of smell
- Reduced risk of heart disease
- weight loss, overall fitness
- Reduced depression
- Pain relief
- less frequent colds or flu
- better bladder control *Farnsworth should have had more sex*
- a happier prostate

But here is what shocked me:

 
Quote
Risks of Too Little, Too Much Sex?

... is there such a thing as too much sex?

The answer, in purely physiological terms, is this: If youíre female, probably not. If youíre male? You betcha.

Seriously, sex burns crazy amounts of calories.  Good exercise.  Or so I've read.

Well you can get STDs from sex but not from masturbating. Similar? I don't think so, but my point will hopefully get through.

Yeah, but do you still get all the same benifits if you masturbate a lot instead of having sex a lot?

I heard somewhere that masturbation helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men. I'll continue my love affair with my right hand.

Yeah, it's true. The more you use it, the less chance you have of getting prostate cancer.

Sorry wrong show, but this quote seems to fit perfectly:
