The male Argonaut squid produces sperm in a specially adapted penis which is then detached from the body to swim by itself to a suitable female, who will be automatically impregnated by the separated penis.

The male can only watch his sexual encounter as his disembodied apparatus makes its way solo and carries out the sex act for him.

Hopefully, he will have selected the right female, as it takes a long time to regrow a new detachable dingaling.
