Preliminary note: Women’s ovulation is concealed, i.e. there are no distinctive signals that a woman is near ovulation. Such concealed ovulation is highly uncommon in nature and characterizes only humans and a few other species. More information on concealed ovulation can be found in Gangestad & Thornhill (2008).
Premise 1: All genes seek reproduction.
Premise 2: Our biology is a manifestation of genetic data.
Lemma 1, based on Premise 1 and Premise 2: Human biology exists to maximize successful reproduction.
Premise 4: Women have concealed ovulation, i.e. their biology conceals information regarding their sexuality and fertility.
Contention 1 from Lemma 1 and Premise 4: Women reproduction success benefits from hiding information regarding their own sexuality.
Corollary 1 to Contention 1: If there is an evolutionary advantage for women to conceal their sexual nature it must have affected more than just the biology of concealed ovulation. Hence, women’s psychology and behavior had evolutionary pressure to conceal sexual information.
Corollary 2 to Contention 1: Biology evolved so that women themselves are not aware of their own ovulation. Hence, lack of self-awareness of their own sexual nature gave women reproductive advantage. Therefore, women’s psychology and behavior had evolutionary pressure to reduce women’s awareness of their own sexuality (extensive support for this claim can be found in Chivers, et al. 2010).
Corollary 3 to Contention 1: Women’s sexual mystery is a deliberate attempt by nature to obtain reproductive advantage.
Corollary 4 to Contention 1: Don’t listen to women on the subject of female attraction. They don’t understand it (unless they are red-pill).
Corollary 5 to Contention 1: Women can’t teach their sons how to interact with women (unless they are red-pill).
Discussion: There are several theories to as why women choose to hide sexual information. These theories range from cuckolding technique, keeping the man close as much as possible, and other hypotheses. In any case, the existence of concealed ovulation strongly suggests hiding information from others and themselves yielded a reproductive advantage for women.
It is hard to understand women’s sexual behavior for a reason: their biology and psychology deliberately don’t want you (or her) to understand it, since such understanding will give you true power over a woman
