There’s much more to fitness than eating Paleo and doing CrossFit. There’s also ‘sexual fitness’ – how well your body and mind work in attracting, courting, and retaining mates. During human evolution, sexual selection through mutual mate choice shaped many physical traits (e.g. height, muscularity, beards, penises, breasts, buttocks) and behavioral traits (e.g. language, creativity, humor, music, art, magnanimity, foreplay, copulation). This talk explains these aspects of sexual fitness, why they are universally attractive yet marginalized in ‘civilized’ education, and why they are especially attractive to women at peak fertility, just before ovulation.
