书籍英文简介:

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 marriages.

How 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 explanation in this provocative and brilliant book.

Ryan and Jethá's central contention is that human beings evolved in egalitarian groups that shared food, child care, and, often, sexual partners. Weaving together convergent, frequently overlooked evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, and psychosexuality, the authors show how far from human nature monogamy really is. Human beings everywhere and in every era have confronted the same familiar, intimate situations in surprisingly different ways. 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.

With intelligence, humor, and wonder, 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 sexuality.

In 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.

书籍中文简介:

书籍中文名:黎明的性爱:现代性的史前起源

从达尔文时代起,我们就被告知性一夫一妻制对我们人类来说是自然的。主流科学——以及宗教和文化机构——认为男人和女人在家庭中进化,在这个家庭里,男人的财产和保护被交换来换取一个女人的生育能力和忠诚。但这种说法正在崩溃。越来越少的夫妇结婚,离婚率不断攀升,因为通奸和性欲减退甚至拖累了看似稳固的婚姻。

现实如何与公认的叙事一致?据叛徒思想家Christopher Ryan和卡西尔达·杰斯说,这是不可能的。虽然我们几乎揭开了我们所知道的关于性的一切,但他们在这本富有挑战性和光辉的著作中提供了一个大胆的另类解释。

瑞安和杰斯的中心论点是人类在平等的群体中进化,他们分享食物,照顾孩子,以及经常性伴侣。从人类学、考古学、灵长类动物学、解剖学和精神性癖中编织出融合的、经常被忽视的证据,作者展示了人类的一夫一妻制真的有多远。无论是在世界各地还是在每一个时代,人类都以惊人的不同方式面对同样熟悉、亲密的情况。作者揭示了人类性的古老根源,同时指出了一个更加乐观的未来,这是由我们天生的爱、合作和慷慨的能力所照亮的。

在智慧、幽默和惊奇中,赖安和杰思展示了我们混乱的过去如何困扰着我们的一夫一妻制、性取向和家庭动力。他们探索为什么长期的忠诚对这么多人来说是如此困难;为什么性爱会随着爱情的加深而褪色;为什么许多中年男人冒着一切风险与年轻的女人发生短暂的事情;为什么同性恋在标准进化逻辑面前依然存在?DY揭示了现代性的史前起源。

在最好的历史和科学写作的传统中,黎明时的性无歉意地推翻了毫无根据的假设和毫无根据的结论,同时提供了对我们为什么生活和爱的革命性理解。
