Why do you need such a big dick?
No, no one forced experimental women to consistently have sex with two men. The students were only asked if they had once suspected their girlfriend of infidelity (or if they were once girls in such a situation), whether sex was in this period and how different it was from regular sex in a couple. In another study, the question was easier - how sex changes after separation. The absolute majority of participants reported that in both of these situations the frictions were faster and deeper. It can easily be assumed that this is connected not only with the emotional reaction to the partner, but also with the unconscious desire to smooth the consequences of possible adultery - to minimize the likelihood of conceiving a child from an outsider man.
Matt Ridley’s book Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature mentions several more arguments in favor of the hypothesis that some features of our sexual life were formed in connection with the arms race between cheating women and their jealous husbands. Ridley quotes the work of Baker and Bellis, on the fact that, firstly, women are more inclined to cheat on their husbands during the period of the maximum probability of conception; secondly, that female orgasm, which occurred simultaneously with male ejaculation or shortly after it, increases the amount of sperm remaining in the female genital tract, and such orgasms are more often experienced by women with lovers than with their husbands; and finally, both male and male rats produce more sperm during sex, if they have reason to believe that the female could meet with another man, and was not in their sight all day. All this is quite old work, and I could not find the original sources, so the above information went through a double popularization distortion. But it still sounds great.
All these data do not contradict Lovejoy's conjecture about our monogamy. Firstly, he did not claim that all females always observed loyalty, and secondly, he described a time-limited piece of our history — evolution did not stop before him and after him. But you can try to explain the large size of the penis without attracting adultery. To do this, we need a hypothesis about the near-water lifestyle of human ancestors, popularized by Jan Lindblad in the book You, Me and the Primordial. The point is that some part of our evolutionary path could occur on the coast, in constant contact with water, and from this we had an erect walk (to go deeper into the water), hairlessness combined with a thick layer of subcutaneous fat ( whales), developed lips and tongue (to suck up shells), pointing down the nostrils (not to choke), swimming reflex in babies, and a long penis (to prevent sperm from washing out with water during sex). This hypothesis is not scientific, it does not have any paleontological evidence, and therefore it is not recommended to mention it in a decent society. But on the other hand, in a society not made up of evolutionary biologists, retelling is usually a sensation, thanks to the simplicity of presentation and the entertaining collective search for new arguments for and against.
There is also a second group of explanations for why a person has a big penis. It is assumed that there is no direct benefit for conception in this, but on the other hand, this body is simply liked by females and for hundreds of thousands of years they preferred men with larger penises, less often they were changed and more children gave birth to them. Unfortunately, we still have no way to go 3.2 million years into the past, find Lucy there (the most famous Australopithecus female, named after the song “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'”) and ask her about sexual preferences - especially considering the fact that she did not know how to speak. The only thing left for us is to try to understand how modern women relate to the size of the penis.

I want to help her with this, because I believe that she needs the help of a psychoanalyst. In addition, it would help me in my relationship with my husband. When there is a conflict between the mother-in-law and the daughter-in-law, it is likely that the intimate relationships of the spouses suffer. If a mother-in-law has a very developed possessive instinct towards her son and if she hardly takes a daughter-in-law, most often

- Why do you need a brain?
At one time, the brain was not exactly compared with a telephone switchboard; in fact, it establishes the connection between thoughts, as well as between events and our reactions to these events. Even in this respect, the brain is much more complex than all our technical facilities. The number of possible connections in our brain is larger than it would be on the world wide web, even if each person had

The end of any war stops any need to kill enemies. They are no longer “enemies”, but “partners” in post-war negotiations. It becomes necessary to move from a militant, military view of reality, from dashing journalistic descriptions of bloody victories to a peacemaking, as they say, civilized worldview. To begin the process of “publicly forgetting” the nightmares of war (mutual
