Beauties & Beasts: How Women's Lib Gave Birth To The New Polygyny

Přednáší: John Marhall Townsend
Sex differences in sexuality and mate preferences are explored using the following sources: ethnography, psychological experiments, oral interviews, survey scales. Evidence from all sources is more consistent with an evolutionary explanation of sex differences than with a social-construction explanation. Exceptions prove the rule: traditional sex differences in mate preferences are more visible in upwardly mobile men and women than in lower-achieving individuals; negative emotional reactions to casual sex are more visible in sexually permissive women than in sexually conservative women. The factors that gave birth to "women's liberation", namely effective contraception and female economic independence, have increased, rather than reduced, the incidence of functional polygyny.
