sex differences, sexual behavior
The article discusses the target article by T. Reynolds which articulated the tension between cooperation and competition, wherein women's social behaviors are biased toward maintaining support from friends and lovers while competing with them. Topics include sex differences associated with the formation and maintenance of friendships, long-term mating as the measure of success, and limitations of generalizing from western, educated, industrialized, rich, and democratic (WEIRD) samples.
