>Looks from here like it might well be a (minority) reproductive strategy

Perhaps. Minority and even reproductive strategies were not the issues, 'fun' was.

There is evidence that even as a reproductive strategy it is not successful, and that there are mechanisms within the woman to combat it as a reproductive strategy. And there is no _memetic_ or societal advantage, in fact, often there are distinct disadvantages. It is, at most, a tool of war. And some of here may have forgotten that women are not the only victims of rape. At any rate, here is my last word on this whole sick little subject, a small capsulation which passes all three truth tests, correspondence, coherence, and pragmatism, and also relegates to fiction that which is fiction....

Rape is an aberration, and so is veganism.
