How do sea slugs compete in order to mate with the other?

As far as I know there is no evidence for sexual selection in sea slugs. We are not even sure how they find each other for mating. Presumably it is done through detecting particular chemicals produced by the species. If so, then the one's with the better ability to "smell" each other would be better at mating but that is pure speculation on my part. .. Bill Rudman.
