Males are blood-sucking parasites that don't contribute anything but sperm. Girl talk at the gym? No, the real story about deep-sea anglerfish.
Since it's hard to find a date in the deep sea, some angler fish have evolved an unusual mate-for-life strategy. Males are born with a strong desire to find a female quickly, because they can't even eat on their own. Males search for the smell of a female, make a beeline for the lucky girl, bite hard and hold on forever.
Eventually the jaw of the male fuses with the female's skin, the male's organs wither, and he is reduced to little more than a pair of testicles. Lucky females can have more than one "male" attached. The male is the small blob attached to the back of the female in the photo.
A story with absolutely no social significance, right ladies?
