Female sexual preferences differ in Mus spicilegus and Mus musculus domesticus: the role of familiarization and sexual experience


, : Female sexual preferences differ in Mus spicilegus and Mus musculus domesticus: the role of familiarization and sexual experience. Animal Behaviour 56(6): 1465-1470

Female sexual preference was studied in the mound-builder mouse (Mus spicilegus) and the house mouse (Mus musculus domesticus). In the polygamous house mouse, postpartum estrous females did not exhibit a clear preference between a familiar male and an unfamiliar male, and estrous females that were familiarized with a male showed a preference for an unfamiliar male and copulated with him. Conversely, estrous and postpartum estrous female mound-builder mice preferred their familiar male and rarely copulated with the unfamiliar male.
