RE: Monogamy is unnatural
Yaaaay, yet more promiscuity apologism! Let a few alphas and all women slut it up and revel in their following of their biological destiny! Cock for everyone (except 90% betas)! Hurrah!

It's typical CNN stuff, as far away from the actual realistic stuff as it can get. They would have been better off if they just stole a fragment of Heartiste's writing:

Quote:It’s a myth that humans evolved for lifelong, monogamous relationships, but it’s also a myth that we are sex machines rigged to copulate orgiastically with whomever presents for a ravaging, a la Sex at Dawn.

Humans appear, from the gathered evidence, to be a cross between chimps and bonobos in sociosexual behavior and attitude. There is strategic female promiscuity, but there is also female preference for monogamy. There is male desire for sexual variety, but there is also male jealousy and mate guarding. The glans ridge on male penises indicates that men evolved to scoop out competitor sperm from presumably slutty women, but the flush of oxytocin released in the female brain after sex indicates that women evolved to strongly attach to lovers for longer than a night.

There are many more examples of the inherent contradictory nature of human sexuality like the above. Further complicating the picture is the growing evidence that these sexual predispositions vary by continental race; jealousy, promiscuity, mate guarding, cuckoldry, polygyny, and even female preference all vary in kind and degree depending where you are in the world. There are certainly human sexuality universals, but these universals are modified by unique environmental pressures.

The bottom line is that people who claim lifelong monogamy is the natural state of humanity absent cultural interference are wrong, and people who claim free love is the natural state of humanity absent cultural constraints are also wrong. The truth, as always, is a lot uglier than either side would have you believe.

RE: Monogamy is unnatural
monogamy is cooperation to raise healthy kids and have civilization.
these pieces bash it as "unnatural" and then deny natural differences between males and females
understand male and female nature and you see what each party gets out of it.
woman sacrifices looks in her prime, man sacrifices harem in his prime, they have kids, they have companionship in old age. it's simple
the choice is between that clean system and the mess of primal mating. sexual liberation isn't some magical new world. it's just going back to the very basic untmed animal mode
