If Humans Are So Much Hornier Than Other Animals Then Why So Many Sexless Marriages?

This is really exciting for me! The Dish is a blog at the Daily Beast that I absolutly love, and they do these “Ask Me Anything” Videos where readers can ask questions of certain contributers and they film video responses. The first question that Chris Ryan answeres was submitted by yours truly. w00t!

Christopher Ryan and his partner Cacilda Jetha are the co-authors of a book called Sex At Dawn. Sex At Dawn is a very engaging treatise outlining why monogamy is not the ‘natural’ form of human mating/pair bonding and that it’s roots more likely trace back to the agricultural revolution. It is a highly engaging read and has turned a lot of the standard narrative of human sexuality on it’s head. Here’s what Dan Savage has to say about Sex At Dawn:

Sex At Dawn is the single most important book about human sexuality since Alfred Kinsey unleashed Sexual Behavior in the Human Male on the American public in 1948. Want to understand why men married to supermodels cheat? Why so many marriages are sexless? Why paternity tests often reveal that the guy whose name is on the birth certificate isn’t the kid’s biological father? Go and buy a copy of Sex At Dawn. Anyone who’s ever struggled with monogamy—which, if people were honest, would be everyone—needs to read this book.
