We argue that these consequences of internal fertilization and gestation are responsible for many phenomena in humans, such as sexual coercion, commitment skepticism, sexual overperception, and a host of adaptations associated with sperm competition. © Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2009.

We suggest that our Ž ndings support the idea that the female prolongs the period of sexual activity to induce her partner to guard her (which reduces sexual coercion from other males) and to monopolise his

Rates at which males received counter-challenges were calculated by dividing the number of counter-challenges a male received by the number of intrusions the male performed.
