Abstract Following our earlier paper on race differences in sexual behavior ( J. P. Rushton & A. F. Bogaert, 1987 , Journal of Research in Personality, 21, 529–551), we analyze additional data from the Institute for Sex Research which indicates that in terms of sexual restraint, college-educated whites non-college-educated whites college-educated blacks on measures such as speed of occurrence of premarital, marital, and extramarital sexual experiences, number of sexual partners, frequency of… Expand
Race differences in sexuality and their correlates: Another look and physiological models
Abstract Lynn (1989) rejects the r K theory of race differences, claiming that (a) r K analyses do not apply to large mammals like man; (b) the races do not really differ on attributes such asExpand
Differential K-selection versus ecological determinants of race differences in sexual behavior
Abstract Rushton and Bogaert's (1987, 1988) differential K selection interpretation of racial differences in sexual development, morphology, behavior, and fertility was contrasted with an ecologicalExpand
Sexuality, delinquency and r/K reproductive strategies: Data from a Canadian University sample
Abstract Across species, r/K reproductive strategies have been postulated to underlie a tradeoff that exists between mating effort and parental effort, also hypothesized to mediate encephalization,Expand
Political correctness and the study of racial differences
I tabulate international data showing Africans and Asians scoring at opposite ends of a continuum with Europeans falling in the middle. This Asian-European-African gradient occurs in mean scores on aExpand
Biodemographic comparisons of homosexual and heterosexual men in the kinsey interview data
Results extended previous findings that, compared with heterosexual controls, homosexual men have a later birth order, an earlier onset of puberty, and a lower body weight. Expand
Lack of racial differences in behavior: A quantitative replication of Rushton's (1988) review and an independent meta-analysis
Rushton (Personality and Individual Differences, 9, 1009–1024, 1988) hypothesized that racial group differences exist across a range of behaviors from intelligence to social organization. SuchExpand
Abstract On questionnaires, Orientals scored lower than Whites in extraversion, sexuality, and delinquency although not in general intelligence, social class, speed of physical maturation, orExpand
Sex, status, and reproductive success in the contemporary United States
This paper reexamines the relationship between status and reproductive success (at the ultimate and proximate levels) using data on sex frequency and number of biological children from representativeExpand
Population differences in susceptibility to AIDS: an evolutionary analysis.
It is concluded that relative to Caucasians, populations of Asian ancestry are inclined to a greater frequency of inhibitory disorders such as low sexual excitement and premature ejaculation and to a lower frequency of sexually transmitted diseases including AIDS, while populations of African ancestry are inclination to agreater frequency of uninhibited disorderssuch as rape and unintended pregnancy.

Extramarital sex: Prevalence and correlates in a national survey
In the current study, data from a nationally representative sample of 884 men and 1,288 women (1994 General Social Survey, Davis & Smith, 1994) who have ever been married were analyzed with regard toExpand


Race differences in sexual behavior: Testing an evolutionary hypothesis
Abstract Population differences exist in personality and sexual behavior such that, in terms of restraint, Orientals > whites > blacks. This ordering is predicted from an evolutionary theory of r KExpand
A new perspective on the relationships among race, social class, and psychological distress.
It is demonstrated that most prior research has assumed that the effects of race and social class are additive; the analysis shows that they are actually interactive. Expand
Abstract Racial differences exist on numerous heritable behaviour traits such that Caucasoids fall between Mongoloids and Negroids. Across samples, ages, and time periods, this pattern is observed onExpand
Sex and Personality:
THE purpose of this work, which the authors regard as a pioneer attempt, is the accomplishment in the field of masculinity and femininity of something similar to Binet's early achievement in theExpand
A biosocial theory of heterosexual relationships.
This paper proposes a biosocial model for sexuality and concentrates on the roles that biological foundations might play in differences between males and females. The authors argue that complexExpand
The Kinsey data: Marginal tabulations of the 1938-1963 interviews conducted by the Institute for Sex Research
The 580 tables in this volume present data collected by Dr. Alfred Kinseys Institute for Sex Research in the years 1938-63. In addition to marginal tabulations the volume includes text on the historyExpand
Preferences in human mate selection.
In this article we examine preferences in mate choice within the broader context of the human mating system. Specifically, we discuss the consequences of mate preferences for the processes ofExpand
Differential K theory: The sociobiology of individual and group differences
Abstract Differential K Theory is proposed to help systematize individual and group differences in life histories, social behaviour and physiological functioning. K refers to one end of a continuumExpand
Altruism and aggression: the heritability of individual differences.
Age and sex differences were also found: altruism increased over the age span from 19 to 60, whereas aggressiveness decreased, and, at each age, women had higher scores than men on altruism and lower scores on aggressiveness. Expand
