Eating their cake and having it too: Or, how women maximize reproductive success by simultaneous mating and dating
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):595-595 (2000)
Data support the claim from the target article that women, both cross-culturally and historically, have employed a variety of mating strategies, marrying but also engaging in short-term unions. But those strategies appear to be practiced simultaneously and not conditionally as Gangestad & Simpson propose, a finding consistent with assumed constraints on the potential reproductive success of females.
