Do evolutionary based sex differences exist?
A concise and clear answer from one of the leading evolutionary psychologists.

And for those of you who are not familiar with him:

Gad Saad was born in 1964 in Beirut, Lebanon. His family emigrated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada in October 1975 to escape the brutality of the Lebanese civil war. Saad is an evolutionary behavioral scientist and Professor of Marketing at the John Molson School of Business (Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada). He holds the Concordia University Research Chair in Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences and Darwinian Consumption (2008–2018). He is an advisory fellow of the Center for Inquiry-Canada. Professor Saad has a blog at Psychology Today titled Homo Consumericus, which has garnered 2.95+ million readers as of July 19, 2014.

For much of the past 17 years, Saad's research program has operated at the intersection of evolutionary psychology and consumer behavior.[1][2][3] He is the author of The Evolutionary Bases of Consumption (Erlbaum, 2007), The Consuming Instinct: What Juicy Burgers, Ferraris, Pornography, and Gift Giving Reveal About Human Nature (Prometheus Books, 2011), and editor of Evolutionary Psychology in the Business Sciences (Springer, 2011). He has also guest edited a special issue of the journal Futures (Elsevier, 2011) on possible futures of evolutionary psychology across a wide range of disciplines.

In February 2011, Saad gave a TEDx talk titled The Consuming Instinct in which he discussed his books and several of his evolutionary-based empirical studies. In May 2013, he gave his second TEDx talk titled The Evolutionary Roots of Human Decision Making.

One of the mentioned videos where he elaborates on some points from one of his most notable works, and which also touches the subject of the existence of sexual dimorphic characteristics on a neurological and innate cognitive level:
