Check This Out #11: Wingmen, flirting and the science of attraction

Writing:

The Science of Being a Wingman
A decent review of some the science behind being a wingman. Doesn’t discuss at all social proof or what to actually do, but a fun read nonetheless.

When Women Wanted Sex Much More Than Men
This is a pretty interesting piece, that overreaches at times, but makes a salient point: Women want sex just as much as men. They just want it in different ways and with different meanings attached (usually). What you should understand: women want to have sex, they just want to do it in a way that is meaningful to them, not just you.

 

Research:

Covert sexual signaling: Human flirtation and implications for other social species
One of the definitive papers tying signaling theory to evolution and mating. A thick, difficult read, but foundational. If you can’t get through this or don’t understand it, don’t sweat, we’ll explain signaling in simple terms later.
