Sex for resources – Is it genetic?
Biology says it's not about bling, it's about surviving
Ever watched relations between penguins on National Geographic or something? The females ONLY mate with the males that bring pebbles to build their nests. I mean, we are higher species … So why does it come as a surprise when we humans, trade sex for resources?

According to new research from the University of Michigan, when it comes to trading sex and resources we are like penguins. Evolution is why ladies not aint messin with no broke a**es! The abstract goes:
Adults in many species exhibit exchanges in reproductively relevant currencies, where males trade resources for sexual relations with females, and females have sex with males in exchange for provisioning.
500 undergraduate students at the University of Michigan who participated in the study admitted to having entertained the thought of what they could offer in exchange for sex or what they could gain from banging someone.
Studies about sex for resources in other species, kinda gives credibility to the description of prostitution as “the world’s oldest profession.᾿ Forget prostitution even … think of the bride price that a man pays the father in law to be to secure the woman. And in more western countries … the diamond ring proposals. These arrangements entail a long-term commitment to the monopolization of reproductive currencies by each partner.
Much as transactional approach is no longer effective especially in first world societies, just the thought of the exchange proved that the biological urge for females to mate with the most eligible providers still persists. And male are still And males are still motivated to offer potential mates stuff … be it funds, food, diamonds, pebbles, just to secure the female’s affection and approval.
So is gold digging some biological or genetic thing?
