Sorry, but I still don't believe the female orgasm exists. Clearly, these were not situations where eggs were going to be laid in the water for males to come and season with sperm. It is time to give up the adaptationist's fallacy and face facts. Women, on the other hand, can rip off five orgasms in 20 minutes and keep on going. I'll conclude in a similar way the scientific article was concluded, by saying there is still a lot of additional work to be done in decoding the possible function s of female orgasm.
The evolution of female orgasm: adaptation or byproduct?
Elisabeth Lloyd neatly dissects the history of these biases and their results in The Case of the Female Orgasm. Placental mammals in the wild need these two hormones to trigger ovulation.

The main argument against women's orgasm being explained by an evolutionary perspective is how infrequently it happens during intercourse.
It is essentially pure art in motion. Sign in to use this feature. Evolutionary Biology, Misc in Philosophy of Biology. Lloyd attributes this fact to the effect of biases in scientific inquiry, which will be discussed in detail during her lecture. This time the press has it right. And what evolutionary pressures sparked these changes in women?
