Differences between men and women in age preferences for a same-sex partner

  • Ray Over (a1) and Gabriel Phillips (a1)
Abstract

We show through analysis of personal advertisements that age preferences for a homosexual or lesbian partner are similar to differences found between men and women in age preferences for a opposite-sex partner. Such data call into question the claim by Kenrick & Keefe (1992) that the sex differences in age selectivity in mate selection are governed by reproductive strategies.
