Does Sex Ratio Change Our Sexual Relationship Preferences?

Hot-Girl-and-Guys-in-DenimDo men only want casual sex while women only want committed relationships? That seems like a rhetorical question that has an obvious answer… or does it? There are biological differences that suggest why women want committed relationships as they invest more resources initially in the upbringing of a child. But there is the Mating Market Theory (MMT) that states that relationship preferences are influenced by partner availability.

There is an article that talks about the math of one night stands and how they tested MMT by interviewing 8 different communities of the Makushi in Guyana, a country in northeastern South America. MMT, where the rarer sex sets the relationship preference of the populated area. It is the supply and demand of the sexes. A sex-ratio that is skewed towards female, will force men to conform to committed relationships while an abundance of more males will have females be more willing to have casual relationships.

There were some interesting findings from the interviews. They found that on average, men  were more interested in casual sex than women were.  But when they accounted for differences in sex ratios, they found that when there were more women, men were more promiscuous than average.

If the community had more men than women, then the men were more willing to settle down. In communities with the most men, there was almost no difference in relationship preferences as men and women both wanted committed relationships.

The Mating Market Theory is interesting and makes logical sense. Value is given to rarity and scarcity so if you are scarce resource then you will have more value. Supply and demand can not only apply to just sex but the quality of the individual as well. If you are a high status men who is surrounded by beautiful women, then you will be perceived as higher value and much more attractive than the average man.

You should not allow MMT to direct what you should want in a relationship. You are ultimately making the choices in life. Don’t let circumstances dictate your life. Learn to acquire the skills and behaviors to assume high status, or become it, and more attractive overall towards women. Most guys are uncalibrated and clueless on how to carry a normal conversation and create attraction. Just by taking the initial steps towards self-development and game, you are doing better than the majority. Become that scarce resource that women so heavily desire.
