Christopher Ryan ñ 4 Summary

Free download Ò Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality 104 characters Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality R Ryan and Jethá show how our promiscuous past haunts our struggles over monogamy sexual orientation and family dynamics They explore why long term fidelity can be so difficult for so many; why sexual passion tends to fade even as love deepens; why many middle aged men risk everything for transient affairs with younger women; why homosexuality persists in the face of standard evolutionary logic; and what the human body reveals about the prehistoric origins of modern sexualityIn the tradition of the best historical and scientific writing Sex at Dawn unapologetically upends unwarranted assumptions and unfounded conclusions while offering a revolutionary understanding of why we live and love as we do. I feel completely cheatedThis review is directed towards people who have already read Sex at Dawn and to the authors But hopefully this will be of use to new readers as wellI ll start by saying that when I first read Sex at Dawn I was blown away This book completely changed my view of monogamy sex and relationships It sparked this new openness and acceptance in me and I will say had a very positive impact on my relationship I thought here was the book that everyone NEEDS to read I recommended it to everyone talked about it with everyone even called it my new bible not that I put any stock in the old bible being an Atheist but you get my meaningThen I came across a book called Sex at DUSK by Lynn Saxon

A long time ago in a galaxy far away I was an anthropology major at UCSC Although I wanted to specialize in physical anthropology I did uite a bit of classwork in cultural One of the things that always fascinated me was fictitious kin The idea of creating a network of ties to promote sharing among small groups Church congregations and the scooby gang of Joss Whedon s Buffy are examples of this I found the author s description of several of these types of kinship networks based on common sexual partners very interesting as well as some of the research comparing primate anatomy and sexual responseHowever I had a very hard time getting past the smug condescending tone of the book I felt the author s we know be

Free download Ò Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality 104 characters Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality Since Darwin's day we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species Mainstream science as well as religious and cultural institutions has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity But this narrative is collapsing Fewer and fewer couples are getting married and divorce rates keep climbing as adultery and flagging libido drag down even seemingly solid marriagesHow can reality be reconciled with the accepted narrative It can't be according to renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá While debunking almost everything we know about sex they offer a bold alternative expl. A popular science book for people who hate science Sex at Dawn manages to combine weak arguments with a prose style of such overbearing condescension that I had to grit my teeth to get through it Everything is couched in terms of facile jokiness or even worse of coy euphemism so that we have the ghastly prospect of a supposedly serious book about sexuality that can talk about a human female s naughty bits The basic argument is that evolutionary psychologists anthropologists and palaeontologists are conspiring to propagate the lie that human beings have evolved to be broadly monogamous The few studies that dare to uestion this narrative are hailed as revolutionary while the rest of the scien
