Sex at Dawn: How we mate, why we stray, and what it means for modern relationships von Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá

Sex At Dawn argues that the idealization of monogamy in Western societies is essentially incompatible with human nature. The book makes a compelling case for our innately promiscuous nature by exploring the history and evolution of human sexuality, with a strong focus on our primate ancestors and the invention of agriculture. Arguing that our distorted view of sexuality ruins our health and keeps us from being happy, Sex At Dawn explains how returning to a more casual approach to sex could benefit interpersonal relationships and societies in general.

“The authors approach the concept of 'lust' and 'love' in a unique way–scientific yet surprisingly human. A profound, delightful read that will rid you of self-doubt.”

– Sira, Influencer Manager

“The blinks to Sex at Dawn blew my mind. They gave me a deeper understanding of human sexuality and how it has evolved until today. I look at human relationships with a whole new set of eyes.”

– Therese, Video Producer at Blinkist
