In the early 1970’s an anthropologist named Lionel Tiger conducted an unusual birth control study.
This was coming off the 1960’s, in which the Sexual Revolution had begun raging in full force. Tiger wanted to see what effects birth control might be having on mate selection. He chose a tribe of monkeys on whom to conduct this study.
This is a classic case study that everyone should be made aware of.
THE STUDY IN QUESTION
What Lionel Tiger did was study a tribe of monkeys on a Caribbean island. The tribe’s leader was a male named Austin.
As is customary in such monkey tribes, the alpha male chose a select few of the female monkeys to be his exclusive sexual partners. In Austin’s case he had three favorite females with whom he had sex with.
Tiger injected two of Austin’s three favorite females with Depo-Provera, a leading contraceptive on the market. So, what happened?
Austin, upon this development, kicked out those two females on the contraception, and replaced them both with other females.
Once the Depo-Provera wore off three months later, Austin rearranged his harem to return to the original three females. In other words, once those two females were off the contraception, he became interested in them again.
But Tiger was not finished with his experiment.
Next, Tiger injected all nine females in this tribe of monkeys with Depo-Provera. What ensued was chaos.
Tiger explains, Austin begins “to rape, masturbate, and behave in a turbulent and confused manner” (#1).
OBSERVATIONS AND IMPLICATIONS
Austin’s sexual behavior is characteristic of all male monkeys. Males are much more attracted to fertile females than non-fertile females.
Why is this?
There are a number of reasons, one of which I that fertile women release different pheromones than infertile women. As it turns out, the former’s scent is much more pleasing to men than the latter’s.
All these observations are true of human beings as well.
Depo-Provera, like most every other injectable or ingestible contraceptive tries to imitate pregnancy in the female body. It tries to trick a woman’s body into thinking she is pregnant.
Pregnant women do not release eggs. Thus, they cannot become pregnant. Thus, such contraception attempts to prevent pregnancy in this way.
How many millions of women have themselves sterilized, or injected with contraceptives? How many more swallow down birth control pills day after day, month after month, year after year?
No wonder many good men struggle to find a desirable mate to possibly marry.
Women have a God-given, natural means to attract desirable men their way, and they stunt it by using birth control.
As Lionel Tiger observes of the females in the human species, they also try to compensate. They don’t give off their fertile pheromones to attract males. So instead, many choose another way to have men take interest in them.
Such measures include dressing immodestly.
Which is rather ironic, don’t you think?
THE IRONY OF IMMODEST DRESS
An immodestly-dressed women is trying to provoke a lustful response from males, right?
By not leaving much to the imagination, the immodest woman causes scandal and causes others to sin.
She shows off a rather large amount of her skin to, so to speak, give a public “sneak peak” of what more she has to offer.
But for what is she giving a glimpse of? What it would be like to get her to bed?
And for what reason would men want to get her to bed?
In this day and age, the answer is to fulfill a sexual desire for lust and fornication. But the primary reason to have sex is to procreate.
To procreate. The very thing she is popping pills to prevent possibly allowing to happen. Hmmm, how about that.
