The Evolutionary Biology of Human Female Sexuality

Randy Thornhill and Steven W. Gangestad

  • Introduces a new theoretical framework for understanding women's sexuality based on comparative female sexuality across all vertebrate animals
  • Explains how women's sexuality is dual purpose in design--to select mates for genetic quality, and to enlist male resources
  • Foregrounds how recent research also casts men's sexuality in new light
