Are we a monogamous sort? I was in a relationship for 4 years and was monogamous. We broke up and have been working on "reconciling" but now I feel more like I can't do the monogamy thing. For one thing my ex is just bad in bed. He does not like being kissed, doesn't like his ass touched, fucks me without touching/caressing/holding me. My take is that he's not interested in a relationship but IS interested in companionship but that's my story. The authors of Sex at Dawn believeand what I think they proveis that we are a naturally non-monogamous species, despite what we've been told for millennia by preachers and for centuries by scientists, and that is why so many people have such a hard time remaining monogamous over the long haul. I'm not saying that everyone everywhere has to be non-monogamous; the authors of Sex at Dawn don't make that argument either. (Lots of monogamists, however, do run around insisting that everyone everywhere should be monogamousand proscriptive monogamists get a pass because, hey, they mean so well and wouldn't it be nice if everyone were?) Sex at Dawn Your opinions?
