I had the pleasure of meeting up with one of my favorite podcasters, author of #sexatdawn @thatchrisryan in the summer in Oregon. We watched the solar eclipse and then Chris had me on his podcast to play a few tunes and talk about about my lyrics and some other things. Link in bio. Thanks for having me on, Chris! #tangentiallyspeaking #summerspontaneity
#sexatdawn В современной науке относительно человеческого поведения, в этом случае — сексуального, учёные делятся на биологизаторов, ищущих ключ к поведению в эволюционной психологии, и гуманистов, видящих это в социальных факторах. Идеи второго лагеря изложены в занимательной книге Sex at Dawn. Авторы постарались показать фундаментальное противоречие между заложенной в генах природой человека и ограничениями современного социума и объяснить — почему несмотря на социальное давление, тысячелетнюю пропаганду и материальную выгоду и мужчины и женщины не хотят сидеть на жопе ровно в моногамном браке, а обязательно ищут себе приключений на гениталии на стороне. Перекопавши сотни информации (ссылки на литературу в конце книги занимают больше десятка страниц), Крис и Кесия проехались по всем, начиная от Чарльза «наше всё» Дарвина, Томаса «смерды должны страдать» Мальтуса, Томаса «левиафан» Гоббса и кончая кучей менее известных современных учёных, с одной единственной целью — показать, что стандартный моногамный брак а ля «мальчик+девочка, живут долго и счастливо, а кто ебётся на стороне — тот предатель и подлец» — вовсе не «естественное и закреплённое миллионами лет эволюции» явление, как учат нас большие дяди. На самом деле большую часть своей истории человек разумный жил в разрозненных кочевых племенах, без проблемы перенаселения, без собственности которую нельзя унести с собой, без конкуренции за ограниченные ресурсы, но в благоприятных условиях когда еду добывать относительно легко и ненапряжно, а все мужчины и все женщины племени — одна большая шведская семья, и никто не остаётся без секса. И вот когда человек прекрасно к этому адаптировался — внезапно наступил глобальный пиздец — мы вместо кочевания по джунглям начали строить дома и возделывать землю. И именно конкуренция за ресурсы, в первую очередь за землю, а также появление недвижимой собственности, которую нужно защищать и захватывать привели к тому состоянию что есть сейчас. И с начала этой перестройки прошло слишком мало времени чтобы мы эволюционировали и приспособились к современным условиям, а кроме того — не факт, что это вообще нужно делать.
Finally convinced @thatchrisryan to try Rolfing and here he is after one session. - If you haven’t read it already, the book, #sexatdawn will blow your mind (there’s a pun there). Is monogamy the natural approach to human relationships or more like a dietary choice, something we’ve been indoctrinated into and hold as gospel out of a lack of introspection. I personally don’t have an answer, but it’s a good one to ponder on. - Creepy photo credit: Chris for the photo and @matt.madonna for the editing. If you need editing work, he’s a ninja...

Finished. Book 2 of 2018. A super interesting if not illuminating book about the nature of sex, weaving together convergent evidence from anthropology, archaeology, primatology, anatomy, psychosexuality, and evolution. Worth the read for the introspection. #booksaboutscience #sexatdawn #makesyouthink
I have been getting very into behavioural science and human evolution based books lately. This one had blown my mind. It's really challenged my view on the nature of monogamy and threatens to uproot everything I've been told about mating and the fabric of our modern society. I love it. It's important to not only learn and read things that support our worldview but also challenge it. #learnsomethingneweveryday #reading #readingtime #audible #audiobooks #listenandlearn #sexatdawn #sex #xxx #monogamy #polygamy #evolutionx #evolution #evolve
If you will excuse the metaphor, I've often wondered about the trials and tribulations of human relationships, and as science is the art of questioning the obvious, I think this book, #sexatdawn, is right, when it comes to #sex, we are trying to force a round peg into a square hole, leading to untold misery.
i have wanted to read #sexatdawn since hearing christopher ryan's absolutely incredible interview on the cracked podcast's episode for valentines day in 2017. so fucking excited to finally own this. id like to commemorate this occasion by quoting cracked staff member teresa lee (@leeicedtea), a fellow bi lady, who on that episode said she likes men because she likes attention and women because she likes to cum 😂
Erin was right. You can tell her that, @miniluvsounds. I’m hooked on the @thatchrisryan podcast. You should listen to all of them with me, guys. This is everything I think about all the damn time. So far I’ve listened to the one with @kellybroganmd twice, the 4+ hour one with @joerogan and @duncantrussell, and now mostly through this one with @kyle_tman. If I’ve tagged this correctly those are some really interesting people to check out. . . I had a great question about if my newsletter is interesting if you don’t want to buy stuff from me. It’s more likely to be about this stuff in my stories than anything else. All the crap pouring in and out of my brain. But I put stuff on the bottom about what’s going on if you want to give me money. But I don’t care if you don’t. I love when stuff hits a chord with you. And if it doesn’t I hope you unsubscribe and be happier doing other things you could do better with your time. #chasejoyman #dowhatyouwant #chrisryan #sexatdawn #reading #podcasts #podcast #tangentiallyspeaking

My “Edumatainment” over the past few months. From studying the social construction of monogamy to deciphering the values and habits of the world’s top performers to learning the Wild, often Brutish history of our ancestors and how we can learn from them, these books were indispensable to me while traveling. Often bringing up more questions than answers. But I think that makes for a more interesting journey. It’s all about the journey. #sexatdawn #sapiens #timferriss
I had sex with the person who took this picture. Two times last week in fact. I’m happy, I feel less cunty afterwards. I need that because I get nitpicky about shit. I’m blunt, he’s calculated⚔️. He’s German, I’m American. We have two kids, ones two and the second one’s one. So it’s a challenge to have sex. Can I give you some advice I heard that stuck with me? Don’t reject your partners advances- even if you’re not in the mood. With enough heavy petting you will be soon. You’ll feel better I hope. . . . . . #vintageclothing #vintage #trachten #bavaria #munich #unaskedforadvice #freerealestate #relationships #snow #ootd #poughkeepsie #sex #mom #newyork #brick #person #sexatdawn
Writing this message from a hotel in Panama where I was just scolded for being barefoot/shirtless running around hotel in the morning by the hotel boss lady (she was actually quite nice but thought I was crazy). She was wearing high heels, lots of makeup and skin fully covered in a business suit. - We are living in a factory farm and even though the small door is open to go outside, we are accustomed to staying 'protected' by the artificially lit, cramped, sterile (leading to infection), immobilized state of our modern capitalist 'pen'. - When a deaf person hears for the first time using bi-lateral cochlear implants, it hurts at first. Same thing with any of our dulled senses, waking up in a sleeping world is uncomfortable... - @thatchrisryan poses some important questions in the book, #sexatdawn. In a crazy world, question everything you find 'normal'

Why is monogamy the normal human mating system? How did it evolve? Is it how it's always been? According to #ChristopherRyan and #CacildaJetha before the agricultural revolution, when we were still hunter-gatherers, sex was relatively promiscuous. A similar mating system to that of our ape cousins, the #bonobos. One of the biggest insights for me is that before our modern cellular knowledge: one sperm and one egg create a baby. It was commonly believed that women are pregnant from the moment of first having sex. Sperm gradually fills up the uterus to create the baby. A woman, in her power, would choose multiple mates with qualities that of which she'd like in her child. The woman would often look for signs of wealth; social status; physical health; and the likelihood that he'd stick around to protect and provide. The male would likely look for signs in a woman that she's youthful; healthy; has an absence of previous sexual experience and a likelihood of future sexual fidelity, as his need is for many childbearing years ahead, and a lack of currect children that would drain his resources. Learning these primal programs are important as it shines light on where, as a society, our constructs have gone askew from our biology. We have a mixture of primal wants and needs, and shame surrounding them because they're unnecessary or unacceptable in this age. I recommend this book to everyone. It's up there with #Sapiens as a book that changed the way I view the world. #Sex #SexAtDawn #BookReview
Day 7/30 .... I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that we have all heard the expression when referencing 2 randy humans getting it on, that they are "acting like animals". It would seem that by following our instinct and urge to copulate uninhibited (by cultural and societal accounts), seems more animalistic than human...Right? .... Wrong. Specifically and technically speaking that is. The animal world is chock-full of species that only have sex during widely spaced intervals when the female is ovulating. Only two species do it week in and week out, for non-productive reasons. One human, the other very human-like, our genetic cousin, the bonobo ape. (Seen above in a very human like position-Check out that smile!!) .... Sex for pleasure with multiple partners over the course of a lifetime is therefore more Human than Animal. Strictly reproductive, once in a blue moon, sex for reproduction only is therefore more Animal than Human. So men and women who only have sex once or twice a year, would technically be acting more like the animal. .... We can also find many examples of pair bonded, monogamous animals such as the Lar Gibbon, Swans, Prairie Voles, and Albatrosses. All of these animals are Hypo-Sexual, having sex as the Vatican recommends, infrequently, quietly, and for reproductive purposes only. .... Human beings, however are on the opposite end of the libidinal spectrum. Hyper-sexuality personified, regardless of any given Religion. A purely human feature woven into our all important social fabric, is our exaggerated sexuality, and the ability to maintain and form flexible, multidimensional, adaptive social networks. .... I invite you to examine your beliefs around your sexuality; from whom, and what, did you learn about sex(uality)? How much shame or secrecy was there in your household around sex? How human do you think you are now, compared to our animal counterparts with this scientific evidence? .... #30daysofstriptease #unleashedwithcaralee #sciencebitch #animalkingdom #sexualempowerment #sexuality #homosapiens #pleasureispower #pleasure #sex #animals #whatsyourtruth #sexatdawn #sexatdawnisnotaromancenovel
“In this ongoing struggle between what is and what many post-agricultural patriarchal societies insist must be, women who have dared to renounce the credo of the coy female are still spat upon, insulted, divorced, separated from their children, banished, burned as witches, pathologized as hysterics, buried to their necks in desert sand, and stoned to death. They and their children - those “sons and daughters of bitches” - are still sacrificed to the perverse, conflicted gods of ignorance, shame, and fear. If psychiatrist Mary Jane Sherfey was correct when she wrote ‘The strength of the drive determines the force required to suppress it” (an observation downright Newtonian in its irrefutable simplicity), then what are we to make of the force brought to bear on the suppression of the female libido?” #sexatdawn read it if you dare to retire your old thinking #christopherryan #cacildajetha
it pays to prove a point. don't blindly quote popular science to me or ill send you something funny from a Victorian science journal.... everytime. #hysteria #thatdiseasethatmakesslavesrunaway #superfoodindustry .... yadda yadda 😝😐😂 words from #sexatdawn well put. featuring bookmark ticket to #robertmapplethorpe @artgalleryofnsw 👌💕

Sex to me, is sacred. This is why I feel strongly about monogamy, and why I love deeply on the rare occasions that I do. Perhaps it is some conditioning I have yet to make conscious, or perhaps I worked in a brothel in a past life and decided I wanted to experience the opposite spectrum so I chose to reincarnate into a Christian family. But maybe it’s just in MY nature to not want to have sex with too much people. Maybe it’s possible I’m not boring or repressed or uptight for wanting my temple to only be felt, seen and touched by the chosen one. When you have sex with someone, you become heavily intertwined with their energy. Their energies and situations as well as traumas and strengths will influence you. I don’t want to have my energies mingle with just anybody. . With that being said, new post up on my blog lavenusdemars.wordpress.com. You can find the link in my bio and it will take you directly to my blog. It’s called “Proper: An Initial Reaction to Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethà’s Book, Sex At Dawn.” If you have any thoughts or insight feel free to send me a message or comment to share your thoughts, I will try to reply to everyone. . In this writing, I talked about our sexual nature, sexual freedom, polygamy, multiple sexual partners, and possibly dabbling in its waters to pry my can of conditioning wide open... Or not? I talk about why monogamy is something I deeply resonate with and I make an argument against the claims of the book. I think it is a worthy topic :) Check it out if you are up for a fairly easy and hopefully interesting read.💙🌐 .

Day 5/30 .... Today I want to talk about sexuality, sexual energy, Eros. So many messages around this topic were blasted into my subconscious, & conditioned me on how I should feel about sexually pertinent information, & definitely gave me an identity of what it meant to be a woman. All of which contributed to the wall that I have been actively trying to bust down in the last 15 months or so. (See day 4/30). .... One of the books we were to read in my program was 'Sex at Dawn' by Christoper Ryan & Cacilda Jetha. The following is a passage from that book. .... "Despite repeated assurances that women aren't particularly sexual creatures, in cultures around the world men have gone to extraordinary lengths to control female libido- Female genital mutilation, mandatory head-toe-clothing, medieval witch burnings, chastity belts, suffocating corsets, muttered insults about insatiable whores, pathologizing, paternalistic medical diagnosis of nymphomania or hysteria, the debilitating scorn heaped on any female who chooses to be generous with her sexuality- these are all parts of a worldwide campaign to keep the supposedly low-key female libido under control". .... And I resonated with this despite growing up in the 20th century, where a number of these practices have ended. But, you'll notice a number of these examples are still commonplace today. .... I have felt like there was something wrong with me because I identified with, and felt my sexual energy. I admit that growing up I worried that I had 'both boy & girl parts', because I enjoyed masturbating, which I thought only boys did. Looking back now, I ache for young Caralee, & wish I could have told her everything you're feeling is normal and natural. You are a human who experiences energy and pleasure, and there is nothing wrong, dirty, shameful or unsafe about that. .... Today I love myself more than I ever have, I connect and use my sexual energy as fuel in my day to day dealings. Not only do I have an amazing sex life with my husband, I also have an amazing Self-Love practice, aka masturbation. That is where I'll leave this post, with a smile on my face, and a calm eagerness to discuss more about this tomorrow
#BookClub #RebeccaBookClub want to join my insta book club? I’ll be posting the books I’m reading - please comment if you’ve read them too or have any questions ... #neuroplasticity #readingisfun “SEX AT DAWN” #SexAtDawn is an anthropological breakdown of modern relationships and sexuality in the context of human genetic evolution and changing social constructs over time. Takes it all the way back to the Pleistocene. It really made me think in new ways and ask questions about the daily realities we construct for ourselves. The data sets are interesting and the writing style is sassy. Whether u are #LGBTQ 🌈 #polyamorous /#monogamous / #asexual I hope you are happy healthy and safe in the #knowledge that you are loved❤️ #belove thanks @molmelancholy for recommending this book - almost done reading it - finally!!!

One of my favorite reads this year. In "Sex at Dawn," Chris Ryan lays out a counter argument to the standard narrative of human sexuality and sexual relations. Ryan tells the story of how early hominids existed in largely promiscuous societies in which male parental certainty and mate pairing were mostly as of yet undeveloped social institutions. This, ryan argues, was an obvious attribute of hunter-gather society, as ownership and care taking of youth by the entirety of a group was a necessary aspect of day to day survival, and group longevity and vitality. According to Ryan, it was not until the advent of agricultural societies in our early prehistory that we abandoned our promiscuous ways in favor of monogamy and more formal relational institutions. The implications of this history are vast. An examination of the way in which our early ancestors lived and loved may contain the answer as to why so many in contemporary society are discontent with monogamy and marriage. • #bookstagram #books #sexatdawn #sundayfunday
