The amphibian analog of coitus. During amplexus, the male is facing the female's back, with his front limbs grasping her waist. Amphibians have no external genitalia, so all that happens is they release sperm and eggs at the same time.

Frogs sometimes aren't too picky about who/what they choose for amplexus. They have been observed making it with rocks, shoes, and animals other than female frogs.
