Abstract: Research shows that there are some obvious differences in the mating strategies (sociosexual orientation) and in the sex drive of men and women: men seem to favour short term sexual relationships and have a higher sex drive than women. According to evolutionary theories these differences are caused by sex-specific psychological dispositions that were formed by evolutionary mechanisms. Social constructionist theories, on the other hand, emphasise the role of the social structures on sex-differentiated behaviour. The question is: can sex differences be explained by biological and social factors?
