Dr. Christopher Ryan – Sex, Connection, Evolution: All Gone Wrong

Subscribe. Watch. Listen.



Behavior, Evolution, Monogamy, Polygamy, Sex


I am so excited to introduce an author whose work has impacted my work so significantly. Dr. Christopher Ryan wrote the epic book ‘Sex at Dawn’ in 2010, and he has gone on to continue researching and writing on human evolution. We discuss it all – human evolution, sex and connection, modernity, the agricultural revolution and how it shifted our sexual behaviour, the internet revolution today, and what all of it means for our lives and our happiness. His work is truly fascinating and I am so honoured that he has shared this work with us today.
