Since its beginnings, when it was called "sociobiology," evolutionary psychology has been wed to the theory that women are monogamous and men are promiscuous—that men have a compunction to spread their seed while women instinctually want to lock some guy down to raise her children. Feminist attempts to create sexual equality between men and women were doomed to fail, because they went against biology. Shrugging was encouraged, and the term "hard-wired" was mandatory. But now the evidence is beginning to trickle in, and one sticky fact has thrown this entire theory into jeopardy: It's women and not men who get bored with monogamy faster.


  • Women wanna fuck and fuck now!!!! A woman unfucked is a terrible thing!

Women wanna fuck? DUH!


Those who believe that EvoPsych posits that women are more monogamous clearly doesn't understand this discipline very well.

Leaving a woman unfucked is like creating a fucking ticking time bomb.


But even though women struggle with it more - who does it more?


May 26, 2013 1:27pm

tru dat. but it's no surprise, as I've posted many tiems that it's women who cheat.

"Women wanna fuck and fuck now!!"

OP is obviously a man pretending to be a woman.

note the lack of a real profile.

im bored. that's the only thing about most losers being gone is there are less people to laugh at the stupidity of. It would be fine if only there were a lot more normal people here posting legitimate topics, though.

This is believable. I have tried to have open relationships with men, and I break up with my exes because I get bored.


I also dont believe that monogamy is for everyone. But, as my friend states I am the most romantic anti-monogamist ever.

riiiiiiiight, you getting bored is "their" fault. Get help with your issues.

I actually have been wanting to read this book, I could never find it like 6-7 years ago, but my friend has it and hes letting me borrow it.

A great read

Statistics on which sex cheats more have been very unreliable although most say men are higher, but maybe that's because men are more likely to admit it.  This study sampling 2500 Germans is not a slam dunk, and anyone who knows about German social behavior knows that they are a pretty liberal bunch.  

Monogamy is an elite discipline.  Some people can't hack it.  



This study has 70% of the population having 0 or 1 partner over 5 years.

I never even want more than one. One hot 18 yo is plenty for me.

Most women are exceedingly fickle. So it's not a surprise they struggle with monogamy. And this is particularly true of young women in their late teens and 20s: They don't know what they want so they shy away from commitment. The able to make and honor a commitment is a sure sign of maturity.


May 27, 2013 7:32am

Not really. People say that but the young women are the ones always wanting serious relationships. They simply change their minds and cheat, however.

  • Most of the world has created cultures and religion that lock down woman's sexuality.
  • A lot of societies are based on women as a possession of a man , and a lot of women internalize this due to conditioning. 
  • It doesnt have to be that way.. Who knows, maybe it would all fall apart if it wasnt like that, or maybe it wouldnt.
  • Certainly america hasnt fallen apart now that women see themselves as indiviuals who can fuck when they want whoever they want.

Cthulu_is_Gay: First, I dispute your premise the most people are having sex with many partners within a small time frame like Sex in the City.  It is more common in major cities, but it is not the norm nationwide.  Second, I dispute your other premise that if promiscuous sex was so bad then the nation would fall apart.  I don't argue there would be an apocalypse if all sexual discipline were to be thrown out.  I argue that we would be less productive and stable then we would have been if we remained disciplined.  

If you were to take away all the safety nets available to us today like health care, fire, police, military, infrastructure, energy, food, and water then what kind of behavior would be necessary for a civilization to survive?  Or what if all American wealth in everyone's savings or portfolio was completely wiped out, and everyone's house had no value?  Then only an orthodox type of behavior would be able to keep society from falling into chaos.  Americans can be loose because we are so wealthy and free.  Celebrities can cheat, have kids out of wedlock, have multiple marriages, use drugs and go to rehab, land themselves in jail multiple times and still remain comfortable because they are so rich.  The poor in America and in the world do not have that luxury.  If you are poor and you make a mistake your finished.  So, advocating risky behavior will not do anything to the rich but will ruin any possible opportunity for the poor.

LMAO! Nothing could be further from the truth, mayo. You clearly don't know very many.
