Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray and What It Means for Modern Relationships challenges the customary and traditional knowledge of sex by delving into the prehistoric origin and evolution of human sex behavior.
This thought-provoking text debunks common myths and misbeliefs about sex by deriving information from meticulous research on primatology, anthropology, psychosexuality and human anatomy. It explains that research shows that humans are not monogamous by nature. The book explores the innate human emotions of love, intimacy and companionship.
The authors argue that the need to stray in any relationship is rooted into our evolutionary history and makeup. Re-evaluating human behavior, Sex at Dawn is filled to the brim with revolutionary insights interspersed with light humor and immense passion. The book commences with a preface and basic introduction, thereafter segregated into five parts and twenty two chapters. Topics like What Darwin Didn’t Know About Sex, Primates and Human Nature, The Promise of Promiscuity and the Inevitability of Patriarchy have been discussed in detail.
