Snake lovers do it twice as good. They've got the equipment.
Male snakes have a hemipenis, a bifurcated and rather spiky tool that looks like a pair of pink Siamese twin blowfish. Sometimes, the female will get bored and decide to slither off in another direction in the middle of mating, and the hapless male can lose a prong. But not to fear, that's why the backup tool is there.
No statistics are currently recorded whether male snakes tend to be "right-penised" or "left-penised".
