Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships

8 minutes
A sobering scientific look at the pleasures, frustrations, and mechanisms of sex in the modern age.

Human beings are little more than apes. Among other things, this means we are hypersexual creatures. Our superiority tells us we are better than that, and we spin narratives of monogamy and religious authority. Our efforts to conform to what we’re supposed to feel may be one of the deepest sources of dissatisfaction in modern times. In this Snapshot, you’ll discover the myth of serial monogamy and its implications for a species bent on presenting itself as something it isn’t.
