Kleptogamy ( derived from the Greek klepto ("to steal"), and gamos ("marriage"). is a behavior pattern in which males which lack attractive characteristics attempt to mate with females by means of deceptive behavior. Kleptogamy is seen throughout the animal kingdom, but is most often seen in humans.

Common examples of Kleptogamy among beta male humans include pretending to be homosexual in order to gain the trust of a female, or claiming to be a feminist in order to signal their submission to the female, and attempt to trick her into believing the male to be virtuous.

Males that employ kleptogamy have been found to have a much higher tendency towards being sexual predators due to their inability to attract a mate through ordinary means.
