Universal sex differences in the desire for sexual variety: tests from 52 nations, 6 continents, and 13 islands.
Findings from a cross-cultural survey of 16,288 people across 10 major world regions demonstrate that sex differences in the desire for sexual variety are culturally universal throughout these world regions. Expand
Patterns and Universals of Adult Romantic Attachment Across 62 Cultural Regions
As part of the International Sexuality Description Project, a total of 17,804 participants from 62 cultural regions completedthe RelationshipQuestionnaire(RQ), a self-reportmeasure of adultExpand
Patterns and universals of mate poaching across 53 nations: the effects of sex, culture, and personality on romantically attracting another person's partner.
It is concluded that human mate-poaching experiences are universally linked to sex, culture, and the robust influence of personal dispositions. Expand
Female sexual dysfunction, sexual distress, and compatibility with partner.
The findings highlight the importance of addressing partner compatibility for successful treatment and counseling of female sexual dysfunctions and the associations between partner compatibility and female sexual function and sexual distress. Expand
Transcriptome analysis of genes and gene networks involved in aggressive behavior in mouse and zebrafish
This study compared gene expression profiles from a genetic mouse model of aggression with zebrafish, an animal model traditionally used to study aggression, to uncover genes consistently implicated in aggression across both studies. Expand
Paraphilic Sexual Interests and Sexually Coercive Behavior: A Population-Based Twin Study
Self-report data on paraphilic and sexually coercive behavior from 5990 18- to 32-year-old male and female twins from a contemporary Finnish population cohort indicated that paraphilic behavior among young adults in the general population increases sexual offending risk. Expand
Premature and delayed ejaculation: genetic and environmental effects in a population-based sample of Finnish twins.
The results suggested moderate genetic influence on PE, but not on DE, and omission of the additive genetic component did not directly result in a significantly decreased model fit for the PE model. Expand
Alcohol and aggressive behavior in men–moderating effects of oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR) polymorphisms
This is the first experimental study suggesting interactive effects of specific genetic variants and alcohol on aggressive behavior in humans and the interactive effects between alcohol and two of the OXTR polymorphisms were nominally significant and remained significant when controlled for multiple tests. Expand
Acute effects of AMPA-type glutamate receptor antagonists on intermale social behavior in two mouse lines bidirectionally selected for offensive aggression
AMPA receptor antagonists affect aggressive behaviors in TA mice supporting the idea that AMPA receptors are involved in the modulation of agonistic impulsive behavioral pattern. Expand
Indicators of premature ejaculation and their associations with sexual distress in a population-based sample of young twins and their siblings.
INTRODUCTION Recently, in anticipation of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders V, much consideration has been given to the diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation (PE). TheExpand
