Geek Chic


Mean Genes by Terry Burnham and Jay Phelan cites a study of college students that found 75% of male subjects were willing to have sex when propositioned by an average-looking female experimenter. Not a single one of the female participants would do the same. Maybe if they had dressed the male experimenters up as cowboys, they might have gotten a different result.

But then, didn't some guy say that all a woman has to do is show up? Fellas are hardwired differently, no?

Yep, Anny, I've heard that. I saw a documentary recently that said men were wired to spread their seed around as much as possible to increase the chances of perpetuating their genes. This study certainly seems to bear that out.
