Privacy was paramount—for example, imagine the fallout if two friends learned that one—and only one—had unspoken romantic feelings for the other throughout their relationship.In order to ensure honest responses, the researchers not only followed standard protocols regarding anonymity and confidentiality, but also required both friends to agree—verbally, and in front of each other—to refrain from discussing the study, even after they had left the testing facility.Few other questions have provoked debates as intense, family dinners as awkward, literature as lurid, or movies as memorable. Daily experience suggests that non-romantic friendships between males and females are not only possible, but common—men and women live, work, and play side-by-side, and generally seem to be able to avoid spontaneously sleeping together.
In order to investigate the viability of truly platonic opposite-sex friendships—a topic that has been explored more on the silver screen than in the science lab—researchers brought 88 pairs of undergraduate opposite-sex friends into…a science lab.When a female is ovulating, she has sex with every male in the group. The amount of food a woman brings home depends only on how many hours she spends laboriously picking and processing foods.Males have a large penis, large testicles, and ejaculate lots of sperm. Among the Aché hunter-gatherers of Paraguay, the men hunt big-game animals. Women, on average, bring in 10,356 calories per day.So, what does it mean to be characterised as an Alpha Female?Ask yourself these questions: – Are you more task focused and single-minded than other women?
