Sex at Dawn: Prehistoric Origins of Sex

Chris Ryan, Cacilda Jetha (amazon); Ashley Wells, Seth Auberon (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships
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.”
— Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D.

Sex at Dawn irrefutably shows that what is obvious — that human beings, both male and female, are lustful — is true, and has always been so…. The more dubious its evidentiary basis and lack of connection with current reality, the more ardently the scientific inevitability of monogamy is maintained — even as it falls away around us.”
— Dr. Stanton Peele, Ph.D.

Wanna take a look? Or wanna read comics?
This is a controversial, idea-driven book that challenges everything (we think) we know about sex, monogamy, marriage, and family.

In the words of Steve Taylor (The Fall, Waking From Sleep), Sex at Dawn is “a wonderfully provocative and well-written book which completely re-evaluates human sexual behavior and gets to the root of many of our social and psychological ills.”

Original hardcover release
In this thought-provoking book, renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá debunk almost everything we “know” about sex.

They weave together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is.

Author Christopher Ryan, Ph.D.
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.

“The single most important book on human sexuality since Alfred Kinsey’s Sexual Behavior in the Human Male.”
– Dan Savage, author of the Savage Love column

Back cover to paperback
“Challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way. Provocative, entertaining, and pioneering.”
– Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Eight Weeks to Optimum Health, Spontaneous Healing & Natural Health, Natural Medicine

Sex at Dawn has helped me understand myself and the world so much more clearly.”
