Women May Have Sexual Fluidity Due to Evolution

It’s definitely more socially acceptable for women to have same sex encounters than men. But recent studies suggest there may also be evolutionary reasons for this difference.

The findings revealed when it came to sexuality, women were more fluid in each of the proposed ways. It confirmed women who experience increased levels of sexual fluidity have a larger number of children, and women who experience marriage or parenthood early in adult life also experience increased levels of sexual fluidity. This suggests women’s sexual fluidity may have been evolutionarily selected as a coping mechanism for polygynous marriages, even though humans have only been mildly polygynous throughout evolutionary history. Typically, these marriages are often characterized by conflict and tension among co-wives.

This not only opens up room for exploring how human sexuality evolves, but suggests that the evolution may have been different for men and women due to social and relationship structures throughout history.
