How about with Johnny Depp? Getting more interested, ladies?
Her research suggests women, like men, are motivated by pleasure-seeking when they enter the sexual arena. Writing in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Conley describes a series of experiments that refine the of a seminal study widely cited in articles and textbooks. That study, by psychologists Russell Clark and Elaine Hatfield, found that when a female college student introduced herself to a male colleague and asked if he wanted to have sex with her, 69 to 75 percent of the guys said yes.
When the genders were reversed, not a single woman was interested. Men, on the other hand, have an evolutionary incentive to spread their seed as widely as possible.
Although Conley also takes an evolutionary approach, her perspective is ificantly different from that much-discussed thesis. She points to a relatively new approach called Pleasure Theory. In other words, our motivation may be simpler than the first generation of evolutionary psychologists believed.
Girls — and boys — just want to have fun, and biology takes care of the rest. So why did the young men and women in the study — and in a repeat of that experiment that Conley conducted — react so differently to the offer of casual sex? After conducting a series of follow-up experiments, in which she tweaked Clark and Hatfield's sexual-invitation scenario in different ways, she came up with an answer sports-conscious men should be able to easily grasp: The playing field isn't level.
This brings us back to Johnny Depp.
Only in this case, the scenario featured one very attractive and one unattractive suitor: Depp and Donald Trump for women, Angelina Jolie and Roseanne Barr for men. The result: Women were just as likely as men to agree to have sex with the attractive celebrity.
This suggests a problem with the aforementioned Sexual Strategies Theory. If women were attracted at some deep level to men with the resources to care for them and their prospective children, The Donald would be a catch. Conley notes that women tend to be more concerned about sexual assault, a fear that makes casual encounters more risky. Follow Miller-McCune on Twitter. Add Miller-McCune.
