Genetic correlation between the sexes in mating success is still an open empirical issue. Only three critical selection experiments have been performed (Manning 1963; Dunnington & Siegel 1983; Gromko & Newport 1988), and the results are equivocal in each case. Furthermore, the most recent experiments have problems and, in general, selection experiments may not be the best way to detect or estimate the critical genetic correlation. Under these circumstances, it seems premature to argue that the… CONTINUE READING
