Maybe some human females should do something like this.

Female frogs fake their own death to avoid unwanted attention from males: Study
Quote:
Female frogs aren't hopping to mate with every interested male frog, scientists have found. Instead, they are faking their deaths to escape unwanted attention.

Female European common frogs were observed engaging in "tonic immobility," essentially feigning their own death to avoid mating, according to a study published Wednesday in Royal Society Open Science.

The phenomenon seems to have evolved in order for females to survive an intense and potentially dangerous mating season, Carolin Dittrich, an evolutionary and behavioral ecologist who conducted the research as part of the Natural History Museum Berlin, told ABC News.

Unfortunately, that wouldn't work with some men.

I've threatened death, does that count for anything?

Whether the threat involved his death or my own is irrelevant. Just throw enough crazy over their way and they usually back off.

My first wife must have actually been a frog. That would explain a lot of things.
