Basically, it's a semi-freudian hypothesis that some women prefer "promiscuous men" because genetically speaking, the chances of their son mating is higher than if the guy wasn't a bigolo gigolo.

I... REALLY don't want to believe this, but like I said, recently found out research, I still have to read all of it.

And then read the references..
And then read those references..
This is gonna take a while for me, but discussions about this would make it faster for me.

Sounds like bullshit but I guess if the evidence is there... This is rather awkward.

I've read one or two other studies that state that many women will be more attracted to men that appear to be desired by other women. I think it comes down to a mentality of *If other women want that man, then he must be better than others, so I want him too*

It appears that some women may be wired for sexual competition like this.

There is nothing to 'believe', the studies discussed are interesting, but merely speculative/hypothetical.

The article is basically a narrative review discussing a hypothesis. The conclusion is basically "there is very little evidence, but the hypothesis is interesting, so we encourage others to investigate it".
