    According to Bateman and others:

       "A male can easily produce sperm in excess of what it would take to fertilize all the females that could conceivably be available [...] Hence the development of the masculine emphasis on courtship and territoriality or other forms of conflict with competing males." (Williams 1966)
    Basically each male is capable of having two mates, for some men they are biologically capable of even more.

    The book Sex at Dawn is a good contemporary piece with good citations on the subject.

    •  I don't know, sounds pretty selfish to me (0+ / 0-)

      Since male and female births are about equal, if I take two women, then that leaves zero women for the next man.  What is that poor guy supposed to do?  What about his rights?

      If everyone tried to live that way, society would be severely unequal and unbalanced.  I don't think the interests of equality and democracy are served by that.
