In this controversial, thought-provoking, and brilliant book, renegade thinkers Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá debunk almost everything we "know" about sex, weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality to show how far from human nature monogamy really is. 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.

About the Book

Is sexual monogamy natural to humans? By debunking many false historical notions, Ryan and Jetha offer a bold alternative in this provocative and brilliant book. The authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future.

Editorial Reviews

"A wonderfully provocative and well-written book which completely re-evaluates human sexual behaviour and gets to the root of many of our social and psychologicalills." (Steve Taylor, author of The Fall and Waking From Sleep)
