There are, of course, critics of this line of research, who believe that it’s overly focused on ovulation-related behavior, and that it doesn’t necessarily translate into what happens in real-world relationships.
Funny how even highly trained scientists choose to hamster feelz over scientifically proven realz in order to appease the feminine imperative.
This much, however, is not debatable: Both men and women have little to no awareness of just how much these hormonal machinations in their bodies affect what they do.
During ovulation, women literally can't control themselves from wanting arrogant Alpha cock and being repulsed by supplicating Betas. It's in their genes.
In recent work, Gangestad and his colleagues recruited 66 young couples, assessed the male partners’ intelligence and, using photographs, gauged their facial attractiveness and features. Meanwhile, they required the women to complete questionnaires about their sexual feelings toward their partners and other men at fertile and non-fertile points in their cycles.
The study, in press at Evolution and Human Behavior, produced results consistent with previous research: Women paired with feminine-faced men were more attracted to men other than their partners, relative to their partners, when ovulating. The same effect was found for women with facially unattractive men, though not when the researchers controlled for men’s facial masculinity or femininity. No significant effects were found for men’s intelligence.
Doesn't matter if you're smarter than Elon Musk. When your wife is ovulating she will always crave dick that ain't yours.
he and his colleagues found that, in mid-cycle, women tended to prefer flings with “caddish” men. On average, fertile women were more interested in short-term relationships with men who came across as confident, or even cocky, on videotape. In comparison, at other points in their cycle, they gravitated toward longer-term relationships with kinder, more conscientious, deferential types — good father material.
Alpha Fucks, Beta Bux
All this may seem counterintuitive. Wouldn’t it make more sense for a woman to make babies with a nurturing man? Someone more likely to stick around?
Look at the adorable little hamster
You would think, says Gangestad, but, in an evolutionary sense, women want manly men’s superior genes.
Alpha Fucks yet again
“Infidelity may be part of the strategy,” says Gangestad. “But while there has been selection for conditional unfaithfulness, it’s also very possible that there was never selection of that sort — that estrus is a carry over from pre-pair-bonding, and has not been modified in the context of pair-bonding (for example, for infidelity).”
Cucking Beta Bob by cheating with Alpha Chad is literally in their DNA. Being a cheating whore was a good evolutionary survival tactic, and unfortunately monogamous marriage hasn't been around long enough for women to lose their whore gene.
"...so far, there’s no evidence to prove that women act on a supposed ovulation-induced desire for extracurricular sex. But there are data trends in those directions."
Contradictory hamstering to appease the feminist overlords.
In one study, Durante’s team had 88 women draw pictures of outfits they planned to wear to a hypothetical party that evening. Not only were fertile-phase women more likely to draw more revealing outfits, but those in happy long-term relationships planned outfits that were almost as provocative as those of single women.
Even in LTRs, women are always looking for the next branch swing.
Durante theorizes that the committed women may have opted for slinkier outfits to retain their partners’ interest.
This hamster is going to die of exhaustion.
Testosterone levels also tend to drop when a man enters a committed relationship and has children, says Gangestad. “Probably the most effective way, short of castration, for men to reduce testosterone levels is to have a child,” he says.
This is how women turn Alphas into Betas. Don't get married, don't have kids, don't have your balls chopped off.
