This is a piss poor backpedal, even for you Rob.The article says you are wrong. There is nothing in the article that goes back over the info and say “We wrote this but have now changed our mind. “
If you can show where they indicate such a thing, go ahead and show it to us.
Hmmm. It all says you are wrong.
“In a literature review recently published in the Journal of Evolutionary Zoology, a pair of developmental evolutionary specialists posit that as the female reproductive system evolved, so did the role of the orgasm. Once necessary for conception, female orgasms now appear to be a bonus for human intercourse. But similar to vestigial organs like tonsils or appendix, the orgasm remained.
The secret lies in ovulation, the mechanism that causes ovaries to discharge eggs for reproduction. In some species, like cats and rabbits, physical stimulation is needed to prompt the egg to be released—a phenomenon called induced ovulation. But in humans, ovulation happens spontaneously (without stimulation), often on a regular schedule. And not only can human females come to orgasm without penetration, but a recent survey of more than 1,000 women suggests that many—only 61.6 percent of heterosexual women—do not orgasm during intercourse at all. Nor is female orgasm associated with a higher number of offspring in humans.
That hormone-orgasm connection in both humans and induced ovulators led Pavličev to believe that they were once connected long before humans became a species. She speculates that spontaneous ovulation likely evolved in the last common ancestor of primates and rodents. Eventually, however, they must have evolved into so-called spontaneous ovulators, but the hormonal reactions associated with orgasms remained.”
