Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality Read & Download é 4 Since Darwin's day we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species Mainstream science as well as religious and cultural institutions has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity But this narrative is collapsing Fewer and fewer couples are getting married and divorce rates keep climbing as adultery and flagging libido drag down even seemingly solid marriagesHow can reality be reconciled with the accepted narrative It can't be according to renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá While debunking almost everything we know about sex they offer a bold alternative expl. Hey Hey baby baby waitwaitwaitwait Wait Wait Baby don t don t freak outOkay okay I know what this looks like but I can explain uiet Chad let me handle this I can explain I m just please stop crying and listen I m just fulfilling my evolutionary heritage and helping to cement social bonds with um the pizza boy but that snotthepoint That s not the point Look before you do anything y know drastic you just need to read this bookHumans are really good at figuring things out As far as we go we have a real knack for taking things apart and figuring out how they work Though determined curiosity and perseverance we know what s happening at the center of the sun we know how the continents slide across the surface of the earth how plants turn sunlight into potatoes We can smash atoms and cure disease and peer back to the moment of creation itself There is almost nothing that humans cannot comprehend if we put our minds to itExcept ourselvesDon t get me wrong we have made great strides in philosophy and psychology and come very far in understanding human origins and our spread across the planet But there is a fundamental problem that we have when we study ourselves and that is that we cannot do so objectively Try as we might it is impossible to completely put aside our own biases judgments and backgrounds when we study how humans behave and try to understand why they do what they do They are still there if you look for them and nowhere are they evident than in the search for the origins of foundations of human sexualityThe standard model as it s often called goes something like this ancient men and women established a pattern of monogamy based on mutual self interest The man would keep to one mate in order to be absolutely sure that he was dedicating his efforts towards raising his own kids and not someone else s If a man had multiple partners he wouldn t be able to provide for them all and his genetic investment would die out So in terms of efficiency it is much better for the man to keep himself to one woman focusing all his attention on the children he knows he has fathered and making sure they live to have children of their ownAs far as women are concerned they reuire the resources that the men bring When pregnant a woman s physical capacities are reduced and she is in a vulnerable state so by staying monogamous she is essentially purchasing security and resources that would otherwise be unavailable to her in a world that brought uick and merciless death to the weak If she slept around the man wouldn t be sure that the child she bore was his and would therefore have less interest in taking care of the both of them Thus monogamy is the best bet to assure the survival of herself and her childThis is the story that s been told for a long time and it s considered by most to be the truth Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha however disagree Not only do they think the standard model is wrong but they think it is nothing than a relic of our own modern biases and hang ups The process they say can be referred to as Flintstonization As you know the characters in The Flintstones were or less just like us They went to work they had houses and appliances and domestic disputes They had the same issues and amusements as we did because we overlaid our own society onto a prehistoric setting Now in cartoons that s good entertainment and in the right hands it can be used as powerful satire and commentary In science though it s just no goodStarting with Darwin people have imagined prehistoric humans to have the same sexual values that we have a demure reluctant female who is very choosy in deciding which male she will mate with A bond forms and they are faithful to each other until the end of their days Later researchers looking at our ape cousins have plenty of observational research to support the idea that very early humans were monogamous They look at chimps and gorillas and baboons and confirm what they had always suspected that our natural sexual state is one of monogamy The logical conclusion then is that our modern attitude towards sexuality with the rising rates of divorce and teen sexuality represents a deviation from the way things should be and must therefore be fixed A loveless marriage a man s roving eye a woman who cuckolds her husband serial monogamists all of these according to the standard model result from our attempts to go against our natureOr is it the other way aroundRyan and Jetha have put together a very compelling argument that the standard model of pre agricultural human sexuality is not only wrong but dangerously so By looking at modern foraging tribes and the way they live as well as doing a comparative analysis of humans against our nearest ape cousins they have come to this conclusion our natural sexual state is one of promiscuity Back in the day communities were small and tightly bonded and sex was one of the things that held those bonds tight Rather than one man and one woman struggling to protect their own genetic line their entire community made sure that children were cared for and raised well Everyone was everyone else s responsibility and in a world of plenty there was no reason to try and enforce any kind of sexual exclusivityIt was only with the rise of agriculture that it became important to know what was yours as opposed to someone else s and that uickly extended from fields and livestock to wives and children Now that people were keeping their own food and making sure to divide their lands from their neighbor s lands sharing went out of style With so much work put into growing crops that s where the standard model of economic monogamy settled in and it s been with us ever since The advent of agriculture changed everything and not everything for the betterIn addition the very biology of humans from the way sperm behaves to the shape of the penis to the anatomy of the clitoris to the noises women make in the throes of orgasm all of these point to an evolutionary history of sexual promiscuity The evidence of our bodies tell us that being locked into a lifetime monogamous pair bond is not what we evolved to doRyan and Jetha know that their view of the fundamental nature of human sexuality will not be popular mainly because it completely undermines our vision of who we are So much law tradition education entertainment and just plain common sense relies on humans being naturally monogamous It s something that seems so obvious to us that we cannot imagine a society built any other way Unfortunately if Ryan and Jetha are right society is the problem We have established a cultural norm that goes completely against our biological and evolutionary nature and which makes people miserable on a daily basisI bought this book mainly to stop Dan Savage from nagging me about it If you listen to Savage s podcast and you should you will soon realize that monogamy is something that a lot of people aren t good at We look at other people with lust in our hearts we cheat we stay in relationships where we re sexually miserable just because that s what we should do For most people our sexual urges are to be fought against with everything from self restraint to social shame to law itself It seems like staying monogamous is one of the hardest things for many people to doThis of course raises the uestion if it were natural would it really be so hardIt is a fascinating read which covers a lot of ground and makes some very compelling arguments It s also uite funny in places which was uite welcome In discussing the standard model the authors note that this is fundamentally prostitution wherein the woman uses sex for material resources This sexual barter system has been assumed to be true for years leading the authors to write Darwin says your mother s a whore Simple as that They also put in some special notes for adventurous grad students in the field of sexual research especially genital to genital rubbing something popular in bonobo apes but which is rarely studied in humans and re titling the extremely popular song When A Man Loves a Woman as When a Man Becomes Pathologically Obsessed and Sacrifices All Self Respect and Dignity by Making a Complete Ass of Himself and Losing the Woman Anyway Because Really Who Wants a Boyfriend Who Sleeps Out in the Rain Because Someone Told Him ToI don t really know what can be made of the serious information proposed in this book No matter how it may seem the authors are not proposing a dissolution of marriage or compulsory orgies or anything like that nor is this book a Get Out of Cheating Free card We ve spent thousands of years putting these restraints on human sexuality and they re not going to come off anytime soon The best we can do right now is to be aware of where our ideas about relationships come from and stop to think about the difference between what is true and what we wish were true This understanding might help to save relationships that would otherwise work People cheat not because they re scum or whores but because they re human Being monogamous is really hard not because we re weak or flawed but because it s not what our bodies want for usThe search for a better understanding of human nature should lead us to being better humans and nothing should be left out Not even our most sacred beliefs Not even sex Asking whether our species is naturally peaceful or warlike generous or possessive free loving or jealous is like asking whether H2O is naturally a solid liuid or gas The only meaningful answer to such a uestion is It depends Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha Sex at Dawn Okay Okay baby So you see I wasn t really cheating okay I was but you can see why right I was just acting in accordance with

Sex at Dawn The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality Read & Download é 4 R Ryan and Jethá show how our promiscuous past haunts our struggles over monogamy sexual orientation and family dynamics They explore why long term fidelity can be so difficult for so many; why sexual passion tends to fade even as love deepens; why many middle aged men risk everything for transient affairs with younger women; why homosexuality persists in the face of standard evolutionary logic; and what the human body reveals about the prehistoric origins of modern sexualityIn the tradition of the best historical and scientific writing Sex at Dawn unapologetically upends unwarranted assumptions and unfounded conclusions while offering a revolutionary understanding of why we live and love as we do. I feel completely cheatedThis review is directed towards people who have already read Sex at Dawn and to the authors But hopefully this will be of use to new readers as wellI ll start by saying that when I first read Sex at Dawn I was blown away This book completely changed my view of monogamy sex and relationships It sparked this new openness and acceptance in me and I will say had a very positive impact on my relationship I thought here was the book that everyone NEEDS to read I recommended it to everyone talked about it with everyone even called it my new bible not that I put any stock in the old bible being an Atheist but you get my meaningThen I came across a book called Sex at DUSK by Lynn Saxon a sort of counter argument to Sex at Dawn So being a seeker of truth I figured I owed it to myself to read this book as well I really expected ie wanted Sex at Dusk to be a bad book in that it made a poor case being full of religious andor political bias and couldn t really negate Sex at Dawn But what I found instead was a very objective concise argument that pretty much laid waste to everything presented in Sex at DawnLynn Saxon drew on the exact same research that Sex at Dawn used as evidence However she showed a much complete view of the research she removed the apparent cherry picking and candy coating that Ryan and Jetha used and showed that almost every bit of evidence they used has been taken out of context and presented in a way that is completely misleadingI am no expert in this field so I took the authors of Sex at Dawn for their word I believed that the evidence they showed was honest and complete Unfortunately it would seem that it isn t I am truly disappointed by their dishonesty The other possibility is that the author of Sex at Dusk is being dishonest but being that she is only showing of the same research I would find it hard to make that argument and I think anyone who reads it will also have a hard time making that argument I highly recommend that any and all fans of Sex at Dawn read Sex at Dusk and please if you come to a different conclusion than I did by all means comment here and explain I honestly feel like I was cheated or scammed by Ryan and Jetha I sincerely hope that they read this review and read Sex at Dusk to address the issues it brings up
