Sexual Jealousy as a reproductive imperative?

Sexual Jealousy as a reproductive imperative?

Genuinely seeking opinions on this, as I’m not sure what I think.

I’ve noticed throughout my life that most people simply don’t believe me, or think I’m trying to be somehow morally superior, when I say I have never experienced, and don’t understand, sexual jealousy. This dilemma was recently underlined when I tried to take a polyamory survey, only to find that a third of the questions assumed I had experienced sexual jealousy within the last six months, with no option to say I hadn’t.

This got me thinking about why most folk simply don’t accept my personal experience as possible.

Combined with some other unconnected recent events, I realised that another assertion I’ve made throughout my life that most people find impossible to accept is that I have zero interest in having children.

This made me wonder whether there could be a connection between the two…. Could it be that my lack of biological imperative to reproduce (which I can’t explain in itself, but figure has some evolutionary significance of me being a simple dead end to this particular gene pool) is responsible for my inability to experience the ‘normal’ emotion of sexual jealousy?

To put it another way, could it be that sexual jealousy is directly linked to a desire to reproduce (fear that another will impregnate the person you desire/take away the potential father of your offspring)?

I have nothing to back this up beyond my personal experience and musing about why people can’t accept how I genuinely feel about these issues, but I’m interested to hear any views in either direction, or whether there have been any proper studies into a potential link between these two factors.

  • Admitting to yourself that you are somehow deviating from the norm can be a lengthy selfrealisation process. Admitting it to family or friends can be an overwhelming challenge full of fear and doubt. If the deviation is related to sexuality the task of coming out may seem no less than impossible to the individual. This is why many people hide their sexual masochism or sadism. The simple fear of being regarded as perverted or strange, being the odd one out that people talk about, is such an integral thing for most human beings, that risking the exposure that might cause…
