Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Sex At Dawn has helped me understand myself and the world so much more clearly.” (Ilana Glazer, co-creator of Broad City)

“Sex At Dawn is the single most important book about human sexuality since Alfred Kinsey unleashed Sexual Behavior in the Human Male on the American public in 1948.” (Dan Savage)

“Funny, witty, and light ... Sex at Dawn is a scandal in the best sense, one that will have you reading the best parts aloud and reassessing your ideas about humanity’s basic urges well after the book is done.” (Newsweek)

“Sex At Dawn challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way... This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly.” (Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Healthy Aging)

“Sex At Dawn is a provocative and engaging synthesis... that has the added benefit of being a joy to read.... A book sure to generate discussion, and one likely to produce more than a few difficult conversations with family marriage counselors.” (Eric Michael Johnson, Seed Magazine)

“You clearly have an exciting book on your hands, whether people agree with it or not: these are issues that will need debating over and over before we will arrive at a resolution.” (Frans de Waal, author of The Age of Empathy)

“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 psychological ills.” (Steve Taylor, author of The Fall and Waking From Sleep)

“One of the most original books I’ve read in years, Sex at Dawn manages to be both enormously erudite and wildly entertaining—even, frequently, hilarious. . . . A must-read for anyone interested in where our sexual impulses come from.” (Tony Perrottet, author of Napoleon's Privates)

“This paradigm-shifting book is a thoroughly original discussion of the origins and nature of human sexuality... These authors have a gift for making complex material reader-friendly, filling each chapter with humor and passion as well as dozens of revolutionary insights.” (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.)

“Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha have written the essential corrective to the evolutionary psychology literature...” (Stanton Peele, Ph.D.)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.” — 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.” — Stanton Peele, Ph.D.

A controversial, idea-driven book that challenges everything you (think you) 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.”

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Undercited and Patronizing 9 octobre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I picked up this book because so many of my friends started raving about it 5 years ago. Unfortunately, I'm struggling to get through it.

Ryan and Jethra have chosen what should be a very interesting subject for me personally, as I enjoy dismantling/digging deeper than the dominant cultural narrative on relationships and families. But the narrative voice is so obnoxious and presumptive that I find it really interferes with the exploration they are trying to do. Ryan assumes all of his readers have are coming from the same place: believing that monogamy is the only way human societies have ever functioned. I certainly haven't been taught in any of my anthropology or biology classes that homo sapiens has been consistently monogamous -- far from it. He also seems to think what he is saying is revolutionary, although the discussion of the various ways human societies handle mating has been prominent in many a scientific and casual setting throughout the past century.

He lacks proper scientific citation and the book seems to have a strong personal bias. If you can get past the patronizing tone and skip over some of his long tangents that are meant to help you "question the way you see reality," you might enjoy this analysis of past and present human sexual relations. For me, however, I think I'll be happier with something a little more scientific and a little less presumptive.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Opens Discussion about Human Sexuality 25 février 2014
Par Laura Bishop Lefelar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
According to the authors, casual sex was the norm for our prehistoric ancestors in terms of ongoing, nonexclusive sexual relationships. The authors suggest that we tell ourselves a false story about the naturalness of monogamy and married sex, which creates unrealistic expectations, sexual frustration, boredom, and betrayal. Their central concern is that we expect “…that romance and sexual attraction can last a lifetime of coupled togetherness despite much hard evidence to the contrary” (p. 41). This book open a discussion for a new understanding of our sexual selves. It was an enjoyable read and well-researched book, written with a light and humorous touch.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's not you, it's your genes 5 octobre 2014
Par daniel tynan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Brilliant, funny, brave book about human sexuality that occasionally strays too far into academia in an attempt to defend its central theses: Human beings were much much better off living as nomadic tribes in polygamous or polyamorous relationships. No going back now, though. Well written but probably too long by half, citing endless examples to make its case when a few would do just nicely. But rare to find a book on a topic this weighty to be so conversational in tone and funny.

PLOT SPOILER: Sadly, while the authors make a brilliant argument for polygamy, they offer no route to achieving it. Short of an apocalypse, I suppose.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A really mind opening book 28 juillet 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

This well written book is both very interesting and funny. The authors have a humble approach to complex subjects and manage to avoid being either too provocative or too politicly correct, which is often the case when it comes to gender issues.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ryan is on to something here, but needs to rethink some aspects of his premise! 4 décembre 2013
Par Ron P. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Chris Ryan makes some awfully good points about the apparent dysfunctionalism of monogamy in human beings. I believe he's really on to something and has an important alternative POV to share with his readers. His rationale that everything started to go downhill when mankind turned from hunter-gatherer to agricultural mode seems rather weak. He never addresses why mankind moved to and stayed with the agricultural model or why the hunter-gatherer model was unsustainable as populations grew. He simply laments the change and seems to pine for some sort of return to the former model, intimating that we could then go back to our "everybody can screw everybody" ways. I think he needs to rethink this part of his theory or at least make a better attempt to explain his reasoning.
