As a result of the Pestilence, fertile males are well guarded and held in very high esteem. It is not uncommon for them to mind meld with many females over their lifetime because, although they are fertile, the Pestilence has made it possible for the offspring of even a fully fertile couple to be infertile. While Id-Thum mate for life, it has become common practice since the End Wars for fertile males to impregnate the females while the female's infertile mate takes a strictly parental role in the relationship. Unlike many species, the act of conception for the Id-Thum is not a symbol of love or trust, nor is it practiced recreationally. It is meant purely for procreation and the preservation of the species.

In order to save any possible fertile males from a wasteful death, it is against Id-Thun law for them to enlist in the military. The all-female Id-Thun standing army, while very effective, is very small and not well suited for large scale war. See [[Id-Thun military]].
