During a lecture in Psychology 18: Human Development, the following
statements we're made by several classmates but could not be verified,

Concerning polygamous heterosexuality & pregnancy:

* A woman's regular partner's sperm will be dominant and agressively
"attack" a foreign or new partner's sperm if both are present in the woman's
sexual organs at the same time. ( Territorial Phagocytosis of some sort ?)

* A woman who has sperm in her from 2 different partners, will fertilize
with the partner who has given her the most pleasure and/or the partner whom
she has the strongest attraction for. ( Does orgasm have any physiological
effects on fertility?)

Can you verify these or similiar points and possibly site case studies or

Thank you.

No this is not a request for help with homework. It's just a very
provocative & interesting subject that i'd like 2 hear more about.
