Human sexual behavior is just one of the many things anthropologist study when it comes to humans Humans are highly complex and social beings We often wonder why we do the things we do Why do some people cheat while others stay monogamous Behavior is not an easy thing to study because it is subject to change and is continuously changing There is no clear-cut reason for human behaviors unlike mammals humans can reject or override genetics We are not under the control of our hormones or genes We can resist our biology and it is for this reason that human behavior is so puzzling and complicated Anthropologists solve this problem by looking at our closest living ancestors the non-human primates By observing and theorizing their behavior anthropologist believe it will give them some insight into human behavior One of the reasons anthropologist study non-human primates is to clue us in on our early ancestors to which we can better understand human behavior today as it pertains to sex If we take a close look at some non-human primate sexuality we see that they almost always have stragedies when it comes to picking a mate The males normally seek out females in heat to ensure their offspring for the next generation To win the acceptance of the female the male will court her by grooming her and being attentive and if she has a child demonstrate his ability to be a good father The male primates main objective is to impregnate a female and as many females as he can Once he accomplishes his mission he will again try to impress another female this is the males strategy for reproduction The dominant male almost always impregnates the most females because he is the superior of the group and this will ensure strong healthy offspring for the next generation although the females may not always receive the dominant male due to his familiarity to her
