  1. Have you read “What Do Women Want” by Dan Berner?

    Great biological perspective on the shortcomings of sexual monogamy (and a fairly easy read for a scholarly book).

    I wrote a short review recently if you’re interested. 🙂

    • I don’t know how I missed this comment! I haven’t read that one, although J may have. I’ll have to pick it up!! Thanks for the recommendation; I’ve heard the title in so many places, I need to get in the loop 🙂
