04/03/2015 - Steve and Andrew's Distinction between the MCFC and MMC Models Is Catching On!
From a recent article in Evolution and Human Behavior, "Did Sexual Selection Shape Human Music?":

"...given the importance of mutual mate choice (Stewart-Williams & Thomas, 2013), pair-bonding, and bi-parental investment in humans, it could be that more musically skilled individuals attract higher quality sex partners (rather than greater quantity; Miller, 2013; Stewart-Williams & Thomas, 2013)... Both explanations are in accordance with the mutual mate choice model rather than the male compete/females choose model and emphasise long-term mating and mate quality over quantity (Stewart-Williams & Thomas, 2013)."
