There are two ways to tell if a lobster is a male or a female. Females have wider tails than males do because that is where she carries her eggs. When you turn the lobster over and look under the base of the tail, you will see a pair of legs that look different from the rest.

During courtship, premolt female lobsters,Homarus americanus, choose a male and initiate a pair bond by repeated approaches to his shelter. The male allows such a female to share his shelter for about one week. This knowledge formed the basis to search for quantitative evidence for lobster sex pheromone s used in courtship: male cues to allow premolt females to identify a preferred male, and female cues to allow males to identify a premolt mature female.
An unnamed professor at Cape Breton University in Nova Scotia has been fired after offering a student better grades if they entered into a sexual relationship with him, according to a report from The Chronicle Herald. An unnamed student said the instructor offered a female student better grades if she brought him moose and lobster meat, which the student did. The professor then demanded the student have sex with him in exchange for better grades.
A college professor in Nova Scotia was reportedly fired after he demanded sex, moose meat and lobster from a student in exchange for better grades. The woman reported the professor — both of whom are unnamed — to Cape Breton University officials on Feb. She told the newspaper he was fired in late June, but the school said he has the right to appeal that decision.

Lucky for the females, 25 million years have provided ample time to refine their skills as apothecaries. The ability to shoot pee forward—something male and female lobsters both put to good use—requires some unique engineering the mammalian penis is another example. For most animals, the outgoing waste ducts evolved to point away from the head, for obvious reasons. In lobsters, however, the bladder sits below the brain, with two reservoirs storing copious amounts of urine located just under their eyestalks.
It might be tough to imagine this, but centuries ago American Indians along the New England coast used the masses of lobsters they found on their shores for field fertilizer. As recently as the early part of the 20th century, lobster remained a meal that people in Maine ate reluctantly, if there was nothing else around. But over the past 75 years, the Homarus americanus has gotten an extreme makeover.
