Polyandry refers to relationships between one woman and multiple men. It is historically extremely rare, apart from some societies where there is scarce farmable land, where the brothers marry the same woman together.

Example[edit | edit source]

One example of a society that still practices polyandry is Tibet. Such customs are declining, and in any case such relationships were a minority of marriages. Polyandry is excessively rare as summarized in the polygyny article.

Gender ratios[edit | edit source]

Another reason for polyandry is a skewed gender ratio due to widespread female infanticide, with one example of such a society that historically practiced polyandry primarily due to this reason being the Toda of Southern India.[1] It is also likely that the pre-Islamic Arabs practiced polyandry due to this reason, before the advent of Islam lead to the proscription of both infanticide and polyandry.[2]

When polyandry is actually polygyny[edit | edit source]

'Rotating polyandry', or when women have many male partners over their lifetime through divorce and promiscuity, is ultimately polygyny on a societal scale if there is a group of involuntary celibate men in society. Chads are polygynous, not polyandrous. Femoids are naturally drawn to a small % of men and are not sexually generous, encouraging societal wide polygyny, not societal wide polyandry.

Potential benefit to incels[edit | edit source]

Long-term polyandry (instead of a rotating polyandry) on a societal wide scale would arguably be beneficial to incels, because it would make men more rare in a relationship context, but it is unknown how to implement it as historical examples in industrialized societies are rare or non-existent. This is most likely because, despite attempts to encourage such behavior, the majority of men have an innate revulsion of open cuckoldry.[3][4]
