The female razor clams (Carpe diem) actually impregnate themselves.

In order to reproduce, the male razor clam has to impress a female. The male impresses the female by showing off his masculinity. He challenges other male razor clams and fights them with the short blades on his back and underbelly.
This only catches the females attention however. As the male razor clams defeat more and more clams, their blades grow in size. The females at this point are orgasmic. The final test to win over a female, is to kill a hammer head shark (Veni vidivici).

The male has to kill a hammer head, no other type of shark. The reason scientists believe razor clams have a strange fetish with hammer heads is because they discovered cave paintings that show a picture of a razor clam and a hammer head shark combined by a plus sign and encased by a heart.

Most razor clams don't make it out alive when dueling with a hammer head shark. The battle is bloody and the female razor clam is convulsing with ecstasy during this event. Once the female has climaxed her body gathers the nutrients in the ocean and her egg is fertilized. The earth is a beautiful thing.
