2CRITICAL REVIEWTitleThe Mere Presence of Opposite-Sex Others on Judgments of Sexual and Romantic Desirability:Opposite Effects for Men and WomenContextualizationThe literature study provides the brief idea about the preferences of the individuals onmate choice. The literature study,mate choice is contextualized as the mating strategy in whichthe females depend on the contextual information that provides the clarified assessment of thepotential mates. The journal article signifies the hypothetical judgments based on theselection ofpotential mates by both men and women.The paper also highlights the preferences of the menand women on recognizing the adaptive problems, which are needed to be resolved by judgingthe desirability of the partner.The women generally find the men who are with other women inmore desirable way than the men who are alone or with other same sex males(Frank & Saxe,2012).The study develops a set of hypotheses to elaborate the context in a clarified manner.Thefirst hypothesisconcentrates on thedesirability enhancement effect, which implies the desires ofthe women while selecting mate. For instance, women are more likely desire the men who arewith women than the same men who are alone or with some other men. Thesecond hypothesisidentifies thedesirability diminution effect, which implies the male preferences while selectingtheir mate. It indicates that men are more likely selecting the women who are alone or with otherwomen than the women depicted with other men. Thethird hypothesisprovides the insightsabout the reflection of desirability enhancements and diminution effects in terms of women andmen’s judgments of intra-sexual rivals. First, women will judge other women who are with menas being less desirable to men than that of the women who depicted with other women or alone.
