An unparalleled exploration of the mysteries underlying women's sexuality that rivals the culture-shifting Kinsey Report, from two of America's leading research psychologists.

Do women have sex simply to reproduce or display their affection? When University of Texas at Austin clinical psychologist Cindy M. Meston and evolutionary psychologist David M. Buss joined forces to investigate the underlying sexual motivations of women, what they found astonished them.

Through the voices of real women, Meston and Buss reveal the motivations that guide women's sexual decisions and explain the deep-seated psychology and biology that often unwittingly drive women's desires - sometimes in pursuit of health or pleasure, or sometimes for darker, disturbing reasons that a woman may not fully recognize. Drawing on more than a thousand intensive interviews conducted solely for the book, as well as their pioneering research on physiological response and evolutionary emotions, Why Women Have Sex uncovers an amazingly complex and nuanced portrait of female sexuality. They delve into the use of sex as a defensive tactic against a mate's infidelity (protection), as a ploy to boost self-confidence (status), as a barter for gifts or household chores (resource acquisition), or as a cure for a migraine headache (medication).

Why Women Have Sex stands as the richest and deepest psychological understanding of female sexuality yet achieved and promises to inform every woman's (and her partner's) awareness of her relationship to sex and her sexuality. Download and start listening now!

    " Authors conduct Kinsey-esque descriptive study of women's attitudes towards sex. Interesting but written mainly from an evolutionary psychology viewpoint. "

    " Very well narrated, AND very interesting survey results. It could have been dry and boring but wasn't due to a convincing and talented narrator. Recommended. "

    " The introduction of this book was a tad to long and involves. Once you work your way through that, the chapters move along quite quickly. It's written in a cross between magazine parlance and a sociological text. It is readable, enjoyable, and quite informative. "

    " probably a 5-star if I could remember stuff. "
