Document Summary

Women and men need each other to reproduce and consent to being together and making children. However, conflict between the sexes pervades (is present in) group living. Sexual conflict is defined as a conflict between the evolutionary interests of individuals of the 2 sexes >> boils down to genetic interests. An example would be you wanting to have sex with a girl after the first date, and her not wanting to >> conflict about sexual access. The sexual conflicts are over the timing of sex, sexual aggression and defenses, etc. The most prominent form of sexual conflict is mating conflict. Human conflict is universal feature of social interaction. For example, members of same-sex are in competition with each other for the same resources >> members of the opposite sex and resources needed to attract them. However conflict between men and women (between the sex) occurs not because they"re in competition with each other but because of differences in sexual strategies.
