STUDY SUGGESTS WOMEN BEING BISEXUAL IS BETTER FOR POLYGAMY

DAILY MAIL - FEMALE SEXUAL FLUIDITY REDUCES CONFLICT - MEN WITH MULTIPLE WIVES  by Cheyenne Macdonald For Dailymail.com

EXCERPT:  About the scientific opinion of Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, Evolutionary psychologist.

The analysis revealed that women are more fluid in all of the proposed facets. 
And, the study confirmed his predictions, including one which proposed that women who experience increased levels of sexual fluidity have a larger number of children, and that women who experience marriage or parenthood early in adult life also experience increased levels of sexual fluidity.
 
The researcher says this suggests that women’s sexual fluidity may have been evolutionarily selected as one method for facilitating polygynous marriages, in which a husband can have more than one wife.
 
‘Even though humans have been mildly polygynous throughout evolutionary history, polygynous marriages are often characterized by conflict and tension among co-wives,’ Kanazawa writes.
 
‘I propose that occasional sex among cowives may have reduced such conflict and tension, and increased their reproductive success. Female sexual fluidity may have evolved as an adaptation to facilitate it.‘
 
The researcher also acknowledges earlier research which explains that historically, women left their homes in order to marry, while boys stayed in their natal groups for their whole lives.
 
OPINION from MISSY
 
Don't you just LOVE it when they call all the women who are sharing a man WIVES... 
I'd like to know more about this study.  For instance, did all the WOMEN who were sharing a man, live with him or even KNOW they were sharing him?  Don't you just LOVE it that they call bisexuality or POLYAMORY "fluidity?"

BLONDE by JOYCE CAROL OATES : MISTRESS MANIFESTO BOOK REVIEW


This was a book I stayed home to read over one entire weekend because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN.  So I cancelled all else, didn't even bother to cook or even bath, and was well rewarded for sticking with it.  There was a mastery of the writer's art of telling a story here that was so good that there were times reading it when I broke down in tears, or got "the chills," and scenes that stuck with me for days after I closed the last page which was nothing less than a triumph.  

I know that Oates did a lot of research of her own, not just leaning on books claiming nonfiction that have been written by this actress who has captured the world's imagination, so those of you who have read a lot of Marilyn-themed books as I have would probably have that same urge to think : Finally someone has gotten it right!

This book was a finalist for the National Book Award, which means that it is literary fiction that was highly regarded by those in the know.  Like many people I was lured to read it by the cover (there have been many different cover designs) that are extremely suggestive of MARILYN MONROE.  So one thing a reader should not skip is the disclaimer at the front of the book that says that this is a work of fiction based on Marilyn Monroe, meaning that the author, JOYCE CAROL OATES is having her creative way with the Marilyn Monroe story.  And to be honest, even if you had never heard of MARILYN MONROE, you could think "Ah, the story of an actress of the late forties and 1950's in Hollywood," and you would still be moved.  Excellent!

ANY MISTRESSES YOU WANT TO RECOMMEND I COVER?

I'm interested in my reader's suggestions.  I often find articles in the news or find inspiration in films or books that I follow through on by doing some research before I elect a person to be MISTRESS (or MANTRESS) of the month.  I'm especially interested in hearing about any Men you know of who have been or are being KEPT by a woman or a man, as I think Men in this lifestyle are more IN THE CLOSET than Women.  Missy

DECLARATION FOR MISTRESSES : Authenticity

"Whatever roles I must play in this life, I bring forth authenticity, knowing myself well, and knowing when I'm being real and when I'm acting."


My meditation on MARILYN MONROE makes me think that Marilyn's growing problem was that the woman she was, with intentions of being a working and famous actress, was at odds with her way in, being a "sex goddess."  But in life many of us do play the role we are expected to play when it's not who we really are, often because we do not have a better opportunity and think of it as a means for survival, or we think of it as only temporary. But if we go on living at great odds with ourselves we feel a lot of pain and we can start to loose our sense of self, our sense of being a unique and worthy individual.
