Less sex please, we're geeks!

Unless you are gifted with way above average good looks and physical attributes then being attractive to the opposite sex is something you have to work at.

Smart kids are smart mostly because they work at it much harder, many have resigned themselves to not being popular with the opposite sex so they excell in other areas.

That is only during HS because the one who worked hard get the women when they get older but the 'cool' kids are pumping gas. So all the nerds should sit tight.

no. these are iq scores, not grades. it doesn't matter how hard u work or study, u can't increase ur iq that much.

also, i don't think it is just about looks. one's personallity has a lot to do with it. ugly people have lots of sex, usually with other ugly people though.

i am fairly good looking, but was just so shy in high school, thus i didn't get a whole lot of action. it does get much easier after high school though. :)

Blatant benevolence and conspicuous consumption

Charity is just as "selfish" as self-indulgence

GEOFFREY MILLER is a man with a theory that, if true, will change the way people think about themselves. His idea is that the human brain is the anthropoid equivalent of the peacock's tail. In other words, it is an organ designed to attract the opposite sex. Of course, brains have many other functions, and the human brain shares those with the brains of other animals. But Dr Miller, who works at the University of New Mexico, thinks that mental processes which are uniquely human, such as language and the ability to make complicated artefacts, evolved originally for sexual display. ...
 
first sexual experience
or
first sexual intercourse

?

is kissing a sexual experience ?
Kissing and fondling ?
mutual and or assisted masturbation ?


i would suggest although there may be some truth to the basic outline it would be similar stats when it comes to sexual experience,
it is just that the smarter you are the more you understand
hence risks
hence emotional cause and effect
hence etc ...

i estimate my IQ score to be somewhere around 135 roughly speaking as a general lazy figure or "resting" IQ as it were, although i always hung out with the brightest people in school and tend to be naturally attracted to the most intelligent, so my perception may be slightly skewed as i in no way consider myself to be among the very top, although know for certain the majority are far less intelligent than i.
a strange quandary for sure, now match this with sexual interaction...


Does an intelligent person leave a trail of burning bridges behind them ?
 
SIDE NOTE
for anyone taking the discussion seriously...

it is crucial to keep in mind the basics of this
Men over report on number of partners and frequency
while
Women under report on number of partners and frequency

the standard patriarchal rules still apply to the main of society except for a small number of extremely highly developed countrys i.e
female is best as a virgin unless in a longterm relationship where then it is acceptable to have great frequency of sex, where as men are expected to have frequency and different partners.
 
I agree an unjust law, needs to be broken just on principal, to draw attention to it, to fix it.

the scary reality is that unjust laws are in fact peoples personal moral beliefs.
i.e homosexual law reform with equal rights for all.
female pay equity
marriage equity of same sex couples...etc...

 
I've never had the dilemma, I had a very high IQ ages past, in those school tests, and I've never had a problem with women... or men for that matter if I chose to bend that way.
There is a book called “social intelligence” by someone or other, which goes over the difference in social logic and normal logic.
The IQ indicator measures only the later. I think people with very high IQ and decent looks far surpass morons in getting laid, if you know how to mind fuck people properly by collage, you will have no problems in later life. The predicament is that people don't apply their intellect to social problems and general mind games as much as they do to theoretical problems.
