This generalization too admits exceptions: Yes, polygyny long-term simultaneous unions between one man and multiple wives is legal in some countries today, and polyandry long-term simultaneous unions between one woman and multiple husbands is legal in a few societies. The genetically based paternity tests developed over the last half-century have shown that the majority of American, British, and Italian babies are indeed sired by the husband or steady boyfriend of the baby's mother. All women who live past the age of forty or fifty undergo menopause, a complete shutdown of fertility. However, even in officially polygynous societies most men. However, the same female chimpanzee that has private sex with a consort may also have public sex with other adult male chimpanzees within the same estrus cycle.
Instead, wild mammals either are still fertile at the time of death or else exhibit gradually diminishing fertility with advancing age. To understand where your dog is coming from, you need to free yourself from your human-based perspective on what constitutes normal sexual behavior. Within even these questions, though, lurk baffling unsolved problems. By menopause is meant a complete cessation of fertility within a time span that is much briefer than the previous fertile career, and that is followed by an infertile life span of significant length. Among the minority of adult male mammals that do offer their offspring paternal care are polygynous male zebras and gorillas with harems of females, male gibbons paired off with females as solitary couples, and saddleback tamarin monkeys, of which two adult males are kept as a harem by one polyan-drous adult female. Most mammals do not live as a nuclear family of a mated adult male and adult female, caring jointly for their offspring. The advertisement may be visual for instance, the area around the vagina turning bright red , olfactory releasing a distinctive smell , auditory making noises , or behavioral crouching in front of an adult male and displaying the vagina. The following human attributes are among those that we take for granted as normal: On reflection, though, they prove surprisingly difficult to account for. The answers to these two questions seem utterly obvious. As a beginning, let's consider normal sexuality by the standards of the world's approximately 4, species of mammals, of which we humans are just one. Readers of the last two pages will surely have been thinking of exceptions to the supposed generalizations that I have been describing, but they still stand as generalizations. Those disgusting humans have sex any day of the month! Earlier versions of material in some chapters appeared as articles in Discover and Natural History magazines. The genetically based paternity tests developed over the last half-century have shown that the majority of American, British, and Italian babies are indeed sired by the husband or steady boyfriend of the baby's mother. But this book may help you understand why your body feels the way it does, and why your beloved is behaving the way he or she is. Those features include our culture, speech, parent-child relations, and mastery of complex tools. Thus, sex is emphatically not just for fun and is rarely divorced from its function of fertilization. Indeed, it is only within the last few years that scientists studying lions, wolves, and chimpanzees have begun to figure out, with the help of DNA testing, which male sired which infant. Humans do engage in one-night stands. While paleontologists usually attribute the evolution of these features to our attainment of large brains and upright posture, I argue that our bizarre sexuality was equally essential for their evolution. Instead, in many mammal species both adult males and adult females are solitary, at least during the breeding season, and meet only to copulate. It's also abnormal by the standards of the world's millions of species of plants, fungi, and microbes, but I'll ignore that broader perspective because I haven't yet worked through my own zoo-centrism. However, like all generalizations, these admit exceptions. For example, even in societies that recognize monogamy by law or custom there is much extramarital and premarital sex, and much sex that is not part of a long-term relationship. Hence, most human copulations occur at a time unsuitable for conception.
