The high investment by males in the courtship of specific females and the submission of males to females at food resources are consistent with the idea that males invest in fostering relationships with females (East and Hofer, 2001; see later). Thus, in contrast to the prevailing idea that females had to be virilized, large, and aggressive to dominate males, we suggest that the maintenance of the pseudo-penis imposed on males a need to cultivate relationships with females, and an important factor in this process was male submission (East and Hofer, 2001).
