Do women like aggressive or gentle males? What are the basic mechanisms of female sexual selection? How to fight for the heart of females using the example of nature?
Women love men who care for them unobtrusively and do not start a real fight with rivals for the heart. This was shown by a study by Professor Dave Hosken of the University of Exeter. The professor studied the sexual conflict on the issue of mating, using the example of the beetles Gnatocerus cornutus, reports MEDdaily.
To a lesser extent, females were attracted by males that showed a willingness to fight. This is an unexpected conclusion, because in theory, such males have more advantages in the fight for the female. It is known that the process of selection of a partner and the struggle of males for a female are the basic mechanisms of sexual selection. But they are not always on the side of the dominant males.
Mating with the most attractive and capable of fighting males, apparently, does not bring much benefit to the females. Although, as a result, such a pair could produce the most attractive and competitive offspring. The expert believes that something similar can happen in the human community, since people are still guided by basic natural patterns of behavior. Especially in the matter of procreation.
