No not at all lol.(Original post by SuperGuy)
Those sperm aren't wasted, they increase the chances of one reaching the egg. Using them alone would be ridiculous (hence the "etc"), the female actually lessens the quality of the pool by being more promiscuous.
The role of the female in the process is to pick the a male who is among the best. Don't forget that 80% of your male ancestors didn't get the chance to reproduce.
(Don't let this statement lead you to believe that I'm moving toward some sort of 1700s conclusion, I don't think that women should be judged to the extent they are, for merely having multiple partners. It is a choice that should be respected and there is little logical basis in them being restricted in choosing any such option (liberty 101).
P.S. I've noticed that many arguments concerning gender (especially those involving missygeorgia and Broderss ) have a very obvious bias in them, I'm not one of those.
Apologies for the quality of my typing, done in a jiffy.
There are some women out there who have serious problems choosing the "best" mate though
I believe there is some more research being done into more intelligent men having better quality sperm, or something along those lines.
I need to keep up-to-date on this research
Has yours come through yet?
