Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationshi

This should spark a very interesting conversation so even if you can't get around to reading the book (but I highly recommend that you do - it is AWESOME!!!), please join us as everyone has an opinion on this matter and we would love to hear it!

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.

“Sex at Dawn challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way. By examining the prehistoric origins of human sexual behavior the authors are able to expose the fallacies and weaknesses of standard theories proposed by most experts. This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly.” — Andrew Weil, M.D.

    What were the books decided on for the coming months? A Fight Chance by Elizabeth Warren, Letters from the Earth by Mark Twain and what was the third one?

    I think the discussion would have benefited if there had been a little more structure. There was just sooo much in this book, we barely made a dent! perhaps we should continue it some other time....

    I haven't read the book, but it's a topic of great interest to me, a theme in most of my books. Looking forward to learning and sharing!
