How Do Snakes Mate?

Answer

After the male wraps his tail around the female, the mating proceeds in much the same way as with humans. The male has two appendages, hemipenes, that are sex organ(s). One of these is inserted during mating into the female's vent or cloaca (hole in the females tail). Once coupled, the male tries to impregnate the female.

All snakes reproduce through internal fertilization. Male snakes deposit sperm from hemipenes into the female cloaca. Most species lay eggs, but some retain the eggs in their bodies until they are ready to hatch. A few give birth to live young.
The female snakes resist mating so the males hold the female down with their head and coil their tail around the female. When he is aligned right he penetrates the female with one of two penises. You can find more information here: http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4568663_snakes-mate.html
