    nothing evolutionary about this.

    Men are less promiscuous when women are scarce
    14 January 2015

    Journal:Royal Society Open Science

    A study published in Royal Society Open Science finds that men are more promiscuous when there are many women and less promiscuous when women are scarce.

    The study investigates how reproductive strategies in men and women might vary depending on how many men or women there are in the community.

    The team interviewed 300 men and women from 8 rural communities in Guyana where the ratio of men to women varied greatly between villages. They used a 7-question test called the Sociosexual Orientation Inventory, which gives a measure of how willing a person is to engage in uncommitted sex. The team used the results to compare the promiscuity of the men and women with the abundance of each gender in the village.

    Their results showed that when men are in the minority they are more willing to engage in short-term, low investment relationships and uncommitted sex than when there are many men in the community. When men outnumber women, men are less promiscuous and men’s and women’s willingness to have uncommitted sex is indistinguishable.

    The scientists found that female promiscuity did not change, regardless of how many men there were in the community. It is argued that this could be because women pay higher reproductive costs than men, for example gestation and lactating. However, the team say their results reveal that men may also face steep reproductive costs that constrain their willingness to have uncommitted sex and affect their reproductive strategies when women are scarce.

    todd hoffman tried to find gold there and couldn't. surprisingly, his equipment was inappropriate, it broke down, and although he guaranteed a fortune, he found nothing.

    They had to commission a study to come to this conclusion?

    I know, right?!

    Awwww, your cute puppy is your new AV. Love it! Has he been doing better with the nipping? Lennon ripped up so many of my clothes with her nipping, not to mention I looked like a cutter, my arms and hands were trashed. :jj:

    Doing ok with the nipping. Today was his first day around a lot of people in the house, and he was pretty good. My poor mother looks like Edward Scissorhands got ahold of her :facepalm:

    Now, potty training isnt going as well as I hoped. We are signing up tomorrow for classes.

    Do you crate train him? How often is he being let out? Our vet told us once for every month they are, they can hold it for 1 hour when they are puppies. Lennon and Izzy both had a handful of accidents but we learned to read the cues and they have been good for 6-7 months. Just turned 12 months.

    Don't let him come him until after he's peed. Make a big production of excitement when he does pee. And give him a little biscuit treat when he comes in after he pees. If no pee, no treat. Hopefully the classes help. Usually they are more about commands than potty training but I bet the trainer will give you advice. Take a list of questions with you.
