    Its a fun activity to be enjoyed by two people.

Or three. Or more. Or, arguably, by one.

I'm interested in why you feel that evolutionary psychology has such a low credibility. I'm not deeply well-read on the subject, but I wouldn't have said that it was significantly less-credible than psychology as a whole (which, of course, produces testable theories, although it's often incredibly difficult to isolate biases). As far as I understand it, evolutionary psychology is simply about the study of the possible evolutionary reasons for psychological phenomena.

While by its technical definition it is about evolutionary influences on psychology, in practice it tends to be a field rank with generalizations and is rather poorly documented.
