A schema for systematic inquiry into different patterns of copulatory behavior in male mammals i proposed. Three stages in the development of a complete analysis are isolated: classification, elaboration, and experimental analysis. A classification schema based on four attributes is proposed. Species may or may not display a lock, thrusting during intromissions, multiple intromissions, and multiple ejaculations. Literature on species-typical patterns is reviewed in terms of these attributes.
