E. Coli and a Little Conversation 

'A Mating Game in the Worm: Mate-Searching in C Elegans - a genetic model for sex drive in a simple invertebrate' shows that:


Sexually mature males when left alone on a food source (a nice plate of E. coli if you're interested) wandered off, presumably in search of a mate.

When a potential mate was present on the food source, though, they remained.
