Prepare to rethink everything you have been taught about female sexuality. One in five couples practice open non-monogamy, yet cultural and societal expectations are that a woman have only one partner for life. Dr. Martin’s book, UNTRUE: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Adultery is Wrong-and how the new science can set us free “cuts through the junk science and regressive cultural narratives that have shaped our beliefs about female infidelity for centuries revealing, a truth both liberating and disconcerting: women are no more “naturally monogamous” than men; nor are their libidos shrinking violets.”

In this episode, Dr. Streicher and Dr. Martin discuss:

  • WHY the science of female sexuality is mis-represented, misunderstood, and usually wrong
  • Why there is so little INFORMATION on the CLITORIS
  • If MEN are biologically MORE SEXUAL and have higher libidos than women
  • The difference between spontaneous and RESPONSIVE DESIRE
  • The ORGASM GAP! Why female pleasure is such a low priority
  • What libido DRUGS are really medicating
  • Why the clitoris is “forward facing” instead of inside the vagina
  • Lessons learned from primate sexual behavior, and what animal to visit next time you go to the zoo
  • Why from an anthropologic point of view, woman are not BIOLOGICALLY programmed to have ONE PARTNER
  • When and why women LOSE INTEREST in sex with a long-term partner, assuming that the sex is still worth having
  • Why monogamy is harder for women than it is for men
  • If women CHEAT as often as men
  • All about “OPEN NON-MONOGAMY” What it is, how many people are monogamous, why the numbers are growing and how to broach the topic with your partner
  • If JEALOUSY is inevitable with openly non-monogamous couples
  • Where in the world is the BEST PLACE to be a woman sexually
