Academics actually get paid for figuring this out...

Startling findings from the International Sexuality Description Project, led by David P. Schmitt, PhD, Bradley University, Peoria, Ill.:

"...when they go for infidelity or promiscuity, men focus on large numbers and women focus on quality."

"What we found is that when men opt for short-term mating, they pursue larger numbers of partners than women."

"Men's preference for intelligence in short-term mates drops off the scale"...

-- "Universal Sex Differences in the Desire for Sexual Variety: Tests From 52 Nations, 6 Continents, and 13 Islands," in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, as cited by [WebMD].

My mother was right, I should've been a professor.
