  •  i'm more reductionistic about the sex part. (0+ / 0-)

    Males who are highly successful in politics, often have characteristics that are consistent with high testosterone.

    High testosterone also produces heightened sex drive.

    So I would attribute some of the sexual escapades to nothing more than high testosterone.  Those behaviors may be integrated into an overall antisocial personality (or narcissistic personality, e.g. Newt), or may just be stand-alone bad behaviors (e.g. the guy in New York who posted naughty pictures and ended up resigning from Congress).

      also increases aggression.  That is the element of conquest.

      It is a combination of high testerone and a feeling of entitlement.  We see that also with sports stars, from the high school level to the pros.

      When shit happens, you get fertilized.
