Most wild mice, rats and related family will actually mate until death. Their bodies will continually pump out adrenaline to keep them awake and continue mating, the reason being to ensure no one else inseminates their mate. eventually the adrenaline poisons their body and kills them.

"He ignores food and sleep, and seeks only to mate. As the days progress, testosterone and stress hormone levels are at an all time high, fur begins to fall out, internal bleeding sets in, and the immune system fails, allowing gangrene, parasites, and liver failure to take over."

Sounds like the NYC club scene back in the late 70`s-early 80`s.
