The Law of the Jungle Rules Today’s Sexual Market


The Law of the Jungle describes today’s degenerate sexual market in the West

Since feminism, the sexual market in the West has been shifting to operate on an r-selected Law of the Jungle. If you are looking for a mate or just trying to get laid in this market, this is why the whole balance seems thrown off. In the jungle, a woman would rather be part of the harem of a leader rather than tied to a subservient follower. Dominance is what it takes to survive the jungle, and the pecking order is everything to female psychology. A Guns N’ Roses classic rock hit illustrates the concept:

Welcome to the jungle, it gets worse here everyday, learn to live like an animal in the jungle world we play…

If you are doing things for women looking for their approval, or trying to be Mr. Nice Guy you are going to be disposed of or flat out used. It’s all tied into the dual mating strategy of women: Alpha fux, Beta bux. Do not find yourself in the position of being the reserve. And do not believe women when they tell you they are different than other women. Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer elegantly explains this concept:

For as lions are furnished with claws and teeth, elephants with tusks, boars with fangs, bulls with horns, and the cuttlefish with its dark, inky fluid, so Nature has provided woman for her protection and defence with the faculty of dissimulation, and all the power which Nature has given to man in the form of bodily strength and reason has been conferred on woman in this form.

Hence, dissimulation is innate in woman and almost as characteristic of the very stupid as of the clever. Accordingly, it is as natural for women to dissemble at every opportunity as it is for those animals to turn to their weapons when they are attacked; and they feel in doing so that in a certain measure they are only making use of their rights. Therefore a woman who is perfectly truthful and does not dissemble is perhaps an impossibility.

This is why they see through dissimulation in others so easily; therefore it is not advisable to attempt it with them. From the fundamental defect that has been stated, and all that it involves, spring falseness, faithlessness, treachery, ungratefulness, and so on.

Know this, and always remember it: Women will screw dominant men while keeping a boyfriend in reserve and will never, ever admit it. Sex is a woman’s way of trying to lock a dominant man into a commitment before dumping the cuckolded boyfriend, and dissimulation (lying) is her way of maintaining an advantage on the sexual playing field. What she really wants is a bad boy: subconsciously this is for the protection he offers and increased chances of survival for any offspring he might sire with her in a dog eat dog world.

It all boils down to the economics of sex. Sperm is cheap, and eggs are expensive. Women want the best of the best sperm since they have a short window (as compared to men) in which they can reproduce. And, for most of human history placing a wager on a bad boy has been the best bet. Civilization has changed this, but the human genome is still coded with the old instincts.

Even though Western culture has suppressed many of our animal instincts, we still instinctually behave the way we did before collectively finding ourselves on today’s government tax farm. Like it or not, man is a predatory animal. Our predatory nature goes down to our very physiology and anatomy: Our eyes are placed at the front of our heads instead of on the side as in prey animals. We prey not only on other animals, but on each other. We (usually) do not kill each other, but our winner take all instincts reach down into the very core of who we are. A nice guy is going to be prey and an asshole is going to be the predator. The asshole gets the egg, while the nice guy gets used and abused.


When in the jungle, it’s every man for himself so don’t be taken advantage of by women

Don’t Be Her Walking, Talking Wallet

A nice guy who acquiesces to women is a man who women instinctually know has few options. They will keep him around if he is a provider of resources for them, but they will subconsciously look for the sperm of a dominant man to impregnate them. Even a woman’s biology is set up to exploit Alpha Fux, Beta Bux, as pointed out in the wonderfully controversial Sperm Wars by Robin Baker. As an aside, the truth is never politically correct, nor is it popular. As Plato told us 2,000 years ago:

None is more hated than he who speaks the truth.

Getting back to Sperm Wars, its findings reveal deception and trickery in women goes past their innate deceptiveness and all the way down to their biology:

  • Ten percent of children are not fathered by their “fathers”
  • Less than one percent of a man’s sperm is capable of fertilizing anything (the rest is there to fight off all other men’s sperm)
  • Vaginal mucus encourages some sperm but blocks others
  • A woman is far more likely to conceive through a casual fling than through sex with her regular partner because her body allows the sperm from the fling to pass through faster than that of her regular partner

After conception, if the dominant man has pumped her and dumped her she will need someone to stay and help raise the child. This is where you come in as her resource provider! So…how do women test to see who is dominant and who is  the resource provider?


Do you have what it takes answer the call of the wild, and do you want to continue to live this way?

Shit Testing

Since sperm (and men who provide it) are so abundant, women begin weeding out process right away. Shit testing is how they weed out weak men. The Disposable Male explains how this process works:

Initially, she can simply watch him in competition with other males. … But finally, the only real test a woman can set is whether a man can negotiate and overcome her own defenses. To test this, she has to resist first verbally, then physically. The stronger and more realistic her resistance, the better the test.

In other words, women want a man who not only win out and control other men but a man who will stand up to her, and put her in the subservient role nature designed women for. How else can one explain the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon?

Do you have what it takes? Or will you sulk away or cave in to her? Unfortunately, her shit tests only begin with the initial test to see if you are good enough for her to take a chance on. They will continue throughout any relationship with her, and in the Western world this poses dangerous risks because of a predatory legal and family court system. Fail too many shit tests and you could find yourself getting divorce raped or turned into a slave of the court.

Fail shit tests and you may also find yourself being the Beta bucks provider. As pointed out earlier, the cruel world of the sexual market extends down from the macroscopic world we live in to the microscopic world of the biology of women and men. Michael Gilbert’s book The Disposable Male explains:

Bang! They’re off! Like a rocket!

Surging forward in a frantic fight for the lead, racers jostle one another on the crowded track. Skirmishes flare up. Some are roughly bumped aside. Others fall and are nearly trampled by the herd of charging marathoners behind them. The strongest an most clever bolt to the front. Pacing themselves, the focused leaders dash along the obstacle course toward their goal.

By the final lap, the contenders are reduced to a handful – just the hardiest, best-prepared specimens with the most robust builds and the sleekest lines.

As they dash for home, the racers in the lead pack dig for every last drop of strength, pushing themselves beyond all measure, pulsating with exertion. Second place wont cut it. Its winner take all.

Suddenly, a scintillating ball of light a million miles high illuminates the horizon. The finish line is just a tantalizing sprint a way. Diving like Superguppy, the exhausted winner hangs on for dear life.

The egg is joined! Outperforming a few hundred million competitors, one triumphant microscopic sperm has won the seminal race of life.

Male competition extends all the way down to sperm fighting their way towards the jackpot of all jackpots, an egg waiting to be fertilized. By dissimulating (lying) and having biology that is primed for you to be cuckolded and your resources taken advantage of by another man’s offspring, failing any of her litany of lifelong shit tests is the equivalent of getting eaten in the jungle.


Traditions like marriage survive the test of time for a reason; discarding them is playing with fire

Escaping the Jungle

Living in a sexual jungle certainly does pose risks. The only way for Western civilization to escape the Law of the Jungle is to return to a sexual market that does not cater to women’s destructive (for civilized society) instincts.

In the past, behaving the way women in the West now do would have been so disastrous the situation would have corrected itself. However, the tax farm we now live on subsidizes this type of behavior with – you guessed it – Beta bucks of hardworking taxpayers. The r-selection paradigm creates an unstable environment (i.e. uncivilized one) and leads to the following:

  • Single parenting
  • Women with children with many different fathers
  • Early sexual maturity in children
  • Short generation time (children having children)
  • Lack of male participation in society

The natural balance that would have put an end to this, women finding themselves outcast from society or destitute for making childish, irresponsible or fickle choices won’t return unless the system subsidizing it fails. Failure of the system is certainly a long-term likelihood as men either go MGTOW and check out of the system completely or revolt and demand change.

Marriage has been instituted worldwide across all different cultures for a reason. These are the reasons it is important to a civilized society, laid down in a 1955 article by social anthropologist Edmund Leach:

  1. To establish a legal father of a woman’s children.
  2. To establish a legal mother of a man’s children.
  3. To give the husband a monopoly in the wife’s sexuality.
  4. To give the wife a monopoly in the husband’s sexuality.
  5. To give the husband partial or monopolistic rights to the wife’s domestic and other labor services.
  6. To give the wife partial or monopolistic rights to the husband’s domestic and other labor services.
  7. To give the husband partial or total control over property belonging or potentially accruing to the wife.
  8. To give the wife partial or total control over property belonging or potentially accruing to the husband.
  9. To establish a joint fund of property – a partnership – for the benefit of the children of the marriage.
  10. To establish a socially significant ‘relationship of affinity’ between the husband and his wife’s brothers

A man’s monopoly over a woman’s sexuality and the promise of paternity is the linchpin of the entire deal. Without it, there is really not much benefit to marriage for a man. For the monopoly over her sexuality, a man basically pledges everything he produces in life to her and his children. The importance of marriage as the bedrock of civilization cannot be understated. Once lost, an inevitable turn towards the sexual market we have today begins. The situation only gets wilder with time.

Accepting the Law of the Jungle or doing the unthinkable, growing a set and going back to a model of enforcing monogamy is perhaps the ultimate societal shit test for men. Are Western men still man enough to put animal instincts back under the restraints of patriarchy and enforce monogamy? If not, expect society to continue to degenerate under r-selected sexual forces.

  • Getting over the need to possess and control others, by getting over the insecurities that drive it, is eye-opening. It becomes evident that polyamory is a much more rational approach than monogamy. It is irrational to expect one person to fulfill all our wants and needs, and pursuing that irrational model creates unnecessary scarcity in the sexual market.


  • I’m impressed by this, but as usual, the “next” part is of concern to me as i have kids.
    Seeing the spinster bubble with my own eyes is one of the inevitabilities of alpha fux’d alpha widows and no more easily dupable beta bux
    Another one is foreign spouses – “nature abhors a vacuum’
    Another one is PUA – “giving women the men they choose”
    Another one is the Sexodus – “fux dat, i quit”
    Another one is this trans nonsense, i guess I’m a male presenting transsexual lesbian now as well

    but all this is just anecdotal. the SMP, the MMP seek their own temporary equilibrium constantly.As I see it, the SMP is a collection of interconnected gravity wells, and by extending the fux/mating/dating market from the age of consent until dating burnout/death, we’ve made the creepy/awkward and fuxbuddy segments so large that it is almost impossible to exit….


  • Now I understand why we hindus have the so called ‘arranged marriage’. At least one of the reasons for me to follow this tradition. In an arranged marriage you basically marry a stranger and have sex with them. It is like a sanctified ‘one night stand’. This makes sure her vagina lets in my sperms and conceives my offspring. British researches have found that when men are dominant (high T), the possibility of offspring to be male is higher. As a man having sex in an arranged marriage with a stranger is equivalent to Rape/One night stand making me a dominant male, thereby higher chances of a male offspring. Research also shows that the ‘Y’ chromosome is getting shorter and shorter and eventually lead to the extinction of males. Thank god, the Hindus, religious Jews and orthodox christians understand this support arranged marriage.


    • I have 4 boys from two wives. No girls.
      I read somewhere that male sperm are quicker, while female sperm have more stamina.
      So, if you have a long one, your fast boys have an advantage, because they are starting out closer to the finish line, so their speed is an advantage.
      On your mark, get set, GO!


  • Great article but probably overstating its point somewhat. It will always be the case that not all people are r-selected to the same degree, and those with less r, and more K, if anything, will constitute the material from which a resurgence of Christian civilization will arise. Besides that, monogamy and marriage do have pre-civilisational roots. Group-selective pressures sometimes favored those clans and tribes that were able to develop their resources to the highest degree, and that might have meant forming small family units capable of providing high-investment parenting to all offspring. We live in a transitory phase were Western individualism is caving in to self-destructive forces from within (cultural marxism) as well as r-selected collectivists from without (MENA and Hispanic invasions in Europe and the US). By purely Darwinian reasoning, those Westerners will survive that will be able to adopt ethnocentric group strategies on their own, the others dying out on their own volition and/or being driven to extinction by aggressive outsiders. Once this phase is over, it will transit to a new regime under which groups are the only players left on the playing field – much like in today’s Lebanon, where Christians have formed and acted as a group. These collectivist whites may, thus, be monogamous and Christian just like the Lebanese Christians have been practicing it for so long.


  • riccardo, rome

    I really enjoyed the article. Very clear explanation.


  • charlessledge001

    Great article. Your writings on the sexual marketplace are some of the best articles on your site. I realize a lot of this stuff is red pill “basics” but you should consider writing a book about it. While I realize Rollo The Rationale Male serves this function to an extent I have given the book to many who while finding great value in it still are confused with some of the topics and instead of referring them to hordes of Heartiste posts and forum posts it would be nice to have it all in one place. However most don’t seem to have a firm grasp on the subject and since Roissy doesn’t seem like he is ever going to write a book it’s definitely something you should consider given your grasp of the subject.


    • Relampago Furioso

      Thanks, excellent commentary as usual. I do have plans to expand writings on the sexes, game and hypergamy in the coming months.
