The trade-off between frequency of intercourse and sexual partner accumulation may reflect evolutionary adaptations

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):594-594 (2000)
The adaptive trade-offs between long- and short-term matings may be mediated or at least reflected partially by the trade-offs between the relative reinforcement obtained through a greater frequency of intercourse (typically greater among cohabitants) versus a greater frequency of partner change. The differing correlates of each approach and meshing with the Sexual Strategies Theory of Gangestad & Simpson are discussed.
