Okay, sexual selection it is that you push aside. Seems integral to the whole theory to me. Natural selection directs will to survive as sexual selection drives the need to reproduce. Proper selection is vital for both, or they fail. You appear to be saying so long as one mate can find another of its kind any will do. But that is not what is observed in nature. It doesn't make sense on the face of it.

Chimpanzees ~ a bunch of guys gets together and they all do it with any available female.
The concept of sexual selection is just out the window with that sort of thing.
Someone wanted to figure out why male birds have flashier plummage than the females. Territorial challenge can account for that but they came up with sexual selection.
