AbstractMany theorists suggest that dominant males leave more offspring than submissive males, but this seems not to be true among humans. Possibly dominant human males have more copulatory opportunity, but they or their partners prevent conception. Teenage boys were judged to look either dominant or submissive in facial appearance. They were also rated on attractiveness and pubertal development. Dominant looking boys are more likely to report coital opportunity than submissive looking boys, net of attractiveness and pubertal development.
