An intriguing piece of theory popped up on Urban Male Magazine that could explain why women are more picky with their mates then men are. The article quotes from a book by Joe Quirk titled It’s Not You It’s Biology that examines the instinctual differences between men and women.
In essence, the theory is that since men produce such an astronomical amount of reproductive friends (sperm) with more than enough to waste (around 1000 per heartbeat) they have the biological makeup that supports, ‘if you have a lot, give a lot.’ Therefore, they feel it less important to be choosy with their mates or the number of mates they acquire during a lifetime. Whereas because women release one (on average) special egg per month, they are innately programmed to protect their goods and be wise in picking a mate to help her raise it. Certainly makes for a very good rebuttal as to why women play ‘hard to get’ … it is said to be a self defense mechanism to protect her future offspring.
Interesting fact to note:
Market Value of 100,000,000 sperm = $50
Market Value of 1 egg = $50,000+
