Bro's don't get you laid, so the rule is non applicable to me.

/friends just let you down in the end
//so do woman also
///but unless your gay, woman get you laid

Which is why you offer to have a threeway with the friend and his wife.
 
2013-03-23 02:12:22 AM  
It's because men appreciate the friendship of other men more than they need to fark everything that moves.

Consider how women hate each other, though. They will frequently sleep with their friend's boyfriend/husband out of anger, jealousy, spite, or just plain sluttiness.

The lack of firm grounding in socialized behavior leaves women to their base animal instincts and all the drama that ensues. Men, on the other hand, are highly socialized creatures, with proper understanding of morals and philosophical underpinnings of interpersonal conduct.

It's science.

I mostly object to labeling this as "bro code"

I instinctively want to find some orange douche with a hot pink popped collar shiat and punch him in the nuts repeatedly every time I even hear the word "bro".

I'm not your bro. No sorry, I don't want a "brewski" in a red cup. No, I don't want to watch you play drunk flip cup, corn hole, or hide the sausage. No, I don't want to listen to that farking "safe and sound" song 400 times in a row, no the horn refrain isn't poignant at all.

Die.

Their conclusions don't make sense.

When a man is aroused by something, his testosterone goes up. Testosterone is needed for arousal, but arousal also increases it. Guys in a strip club, assuming they get turned on by that, will have higher levels of testosterone.

So, all this study showed was that men apparently have lower testosterone around their friends' wives. That doesn't mean they have an evolutionary impulse to not sleep with another's wife. It could just mean that psychologically they've already somewhat discounted the idea of sleeping with this person, therefore their arousal is lower, therefore their testosterone is lower. The testosterone is kind of irrelevant, except as a barometer. Just because it goes up and down doesn't tell us about evolution. Other factors can affect arousal. Now, whether we are evolved to have these traits of respecting boundaries of relationships friends have with their wives is another question. But I don't see how it's proven or disproven with the testosterone as a yardstick test.

I mean you could do the same thing with a man and his mother/sister. The phenomenon by which people tend not to be attracted to the people they grow up around is called:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westermarck_effect

Which is supposed to prevent this from happening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdXry79EifM&feature=player_embedded

And so if you checked the testosterone level of a man around his mother, you might find it lower. But that doesn't mean we've proven anything about evolution. I would argue it's likely that has something to do with evolution. Our nature changes over time so that we don't sleep with people we grow up with because people who have done that historically would probably have produced off spring that died of genetic illnesses, for example.

And maybe you could make a case in this example as well. But they didn't make such a case.

As an aside to what you've written here, I'd like to state the possibility that perhaps because the men being tested are familiar with these women, maybe they're not getting aroused because they already know that their friends wives/girlfriends are psychotic needy controlling drama queens or some variation thereof.

After that, things may or may not develop.

It makes sense.  If in prehistoric days, males primarily hunted for game, this would require a cooperative effort on their part.  A mechanism that would reduce conflict would be adaptive.  And few things are as conflict-generating as a guy having sex with someone else's mate.

I think this also applies to girlfriends.  God knows guys can be territorial where they're concerned.
