Think so. Of course, they could be wearing two hats--having secured a
mate, they're seeking sex on the side, like males in all those bird
species we once thought were monogamous.

A bitch, ain't it? Well, orgasm ain't necessary to conceive--it just
improves a fellow's odds when many guys' sperm are co-mingling in a gal.

Also, the attractive guys only inspire more *copulatory* orgasms. No
evidence that committed fellows cause fewer female orgasms during
foreplay and posplay than the symmetrical guys. That should seem hopeful
to women.

I think this stuff speaks to the age-old question women ask themselves
about why they're attracted so often to "assholes." The most attractive
guys are least willing to give what most women seem to want--commitment.
