Are there any animals (other than the black widow) that eat the male after sex?

    Yes, the praying mantis. The female praying mantis devours the male immediately after mating is through, and sometimes during mating. The male may have a brief window to escape, but usually he is eaten. Here is a video showing the process:

    Female preying mantises will eat the male.  Sometimes a female mantid will eat the male’s head before mating, because the reproductive actions are controlled from the abdomen and not the head, mating is still possible.
