45% of the mono men in the sample were single, suggesting polyamory doesn’t hurt low-status men’s chances of getting a date.
This sample is pretty skewed since it has three times more poly men than poly women.
I interpret NRO and Heartiste’s theories to predict that more poly men than mono men would be single, that the median poly woman would have more partners than the median poly man, but that there would be more poly men with very high numbers of partners than poly women with the same. For poly men, 29% were single, 47% had one partner, 17% had two partners, 4% had three, 2% had four, and only 0.5% had five or more.
Poly men might either date women from outside the community, or have one poly woman date multiple poly men in order to even the odds.The reality would be considerably darker; women would still want to bang the alpha, leaving the beta male out in the cold, clawing and scratching for rode-worn scraps, but now shackled with the obligation to help provide for kids that are likely not his own.Despite the different focuses, they both have the same theory.[EDIT: Many people are pointing out I’m looking at actually-existing-polyamory, not polyamory as it would be practiced if it hypothetically took over all of society.But actually-existing-polyamory is the thing at issue here, and the practice that has to defend itself.
Poly men were more likely than poly women to be single.
