    Rationalization is a suboptimal defense mechanism associated with clinical and forensic problems.Stuart Brody & Rui Miguel Costa - 2020 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 43:e31.
    Cushman argues that “rationalization is rational.” We show that there is reasonable empirical clinical and forensic psychological evidence to support viewing rationalization as a quite suboptimal defense mechanism. Rationalization has been found to be associated not only with poorer emotional development, but also with a broad range of antisocial behavior, including not only shoplifting, but also pedophilia and murder.

    The trade-off between frequency of intercourse and sexual partner accumulation may reflect evolutionary adaptations.Stuart Brody & Caterina Breitenstein - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):594-594.
    The adaptive trade-offs between long- and short-term matings may be mediated or at least reflected partially by the trade-offs between the relative reinforcement obtained through a greater frequency of intercourse (typically greater among cohabitants) versus a greater frequency of partner change. The differing correlates of each approach and meshing with the Sexual Strategies Theory of Gangestad & Simpson are discussed.

    Vaginas yield far more pleasure than pain.Stuart Brody - 1997 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (3):442-443.
    berkley's pathogen model of sex differences in pain is inconsistent with women outliving men by several years. The vagina is far more resistant to pathogens than is the rectum. Vaginal stimulation produces intense analgesia in rats and humans. Possible evolutionary and cardiovascular factors are also noted.
