That's kind of interesting. The real world solution is slightly different to the solution we arrive at if we mathematically idealise the problem. I can think of another simple example of this principle.
In order for a male to monopolise a female's reproductive lifespan and capture as many offspring from her as possible when would be the best time to start fucking her? Under mathematically ideal conditions in which the start of a female's fertile period can be ascertained precisely, the best time to begin fucking her would be right at that point. By starting to fuck her when she becomes fertile and continuing until she ceases to be fertile a male will capture the whole of her reproductive lifespan.
Just as with the asthma pump, this doesn't quite work in the real world because it's impossible to perfectly synchronise the beginning of the fucking with the beginning of fertility. Males who followed this strategy over the generations would sometimes start fucking their females a bit late and fail to capture some of thier fertile years, possibly losing them to other males. The males that would stand the greatest chance of capturing all of their females' fertile lifespan would be those who play it a bit safe and start fucking them a little before the average age that females become fertile.
Human females living under natural conditions typically become fully fertile in late adolescence around about 17. If human males have evolved to try to monopolise females' reproductive lifespans, and there is good evidence that they have such as the universals of marriage and possessive jealously, then we can expect that the best age for human males to start fucking their mates to be a few years below 17 at probably about 14, maybe only 12.
(A good day to you Sir!)
