The metabolic rates of 4-day-old females of Drosophila simulans were found to be affected by sexual activity. Virgin females had the lowest rates of metabolism, inseminated females that were separated from males had higher rates of metabolism, and females that were kept continuously in contact with males had the highest rates of metabolism. Differences between the metabolic rates of the latter 2 classes of females were unrelated to differences in their rates of egg laying.
