Abstract

We examined (N = 201) the sexual health costs and benefits of being high on psychopathy, narcissism, and Machiavellianism in women. The Dark Triad traits were associated with more sexual health disorders, more miscarriages, and pain associated with sexual health. However, narcissism was also associated with a smaller, more attractive waist-to-hip ratio and all the Dark Triad traits were associated with a shorter monthly cycle. Results, while tentative, are discussed within a Life History Theory framework.
