Dr. Paul Vasey lecture Cross cultural perspectives on “Why don’t genes for male androphilia go extinct?”

Date: Time: 1:30 pm–12:00 am
Nebraska Union Room: Regency Room
Additional Info: NU
Vasey’s cross-cultural work has focused, in particular, on testing models for why male androphilia (i.e. male sexual attraction/arousal to adult males) do not go extinct. This cross-cultural work, which began in 2004, takes place in Samoa, Japan and Canada. Vasey will describe his research in Samoa, which suggest that sexually antagonistic genes and kin selection, may account, at least in part, for the maintenance of genes for male androphilia in some populations.
