In this controversial, thought-provoking, and brilliant book, renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá debunk almost everything we “know” about sex, weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is. In Sex at Dawn, the authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity.
This is a very interesting book, well written, easy to read and well researched and supported.
Look, before you do anything, y'know, drastic, you just need to read this book....) Humans are really good at figuring things out.
The authors look at human sexuality from an athropological. biological and evolutionary psychological research.
I liked the examples and anecdotes. It is neat to read about other cultures and their relevance to modern anthropology. Read morePublished 2 hours ago by Viola
