You want to know what the real answer is?
I've never seen a fish have sexual intercourse, have you?

If you added a jet and a singer, it would be a Pratt and Whitney Houston.

The fish, dear thing, the fish.

No - fish don't have willies. Which reminds me of a joke - which I'm not going to tell.

Yes they do - it's just not penetrative.

What's more, it is the male which gets pregnant and gives birth to live young!!!

The most common type of 'pregnant' fish are referred to as 'live bearers'. Guppies, mollies and swordtails are among the popular ones.
The male of the species uses a modified form of the anal fin to copulate with the female. Once a female has been mated with a male, she can store the sperm and deliver a number of successive broods without further contact with a male.
