How Women Control Sexual Selection

The power of female sexual selection:

“Women chat happily, send sexually explicit signals and encourage the
man’s attention, even if they have absolutely no interest in him. This gives
a woman time to assess a man, says [Karl Grammer of the Ludwig
Boltzmann Institute of Urban Ethology in Vienna, who studied 45 malefemale
pairs of strangers in their teens and early twenties]… Importantly,
the women also seemed to control the encounter — what the women did
had a direct effect on how the men behaved next. ‘You can predict male
behaviour from female behaviour but not the other way round,’ says
