About the book
Mating, copulating, having sexual intercourse, making love, call it how you will – in a far, far distant past mother nature decided that a useful survival aid would be to exchange genes. In other words, to have sex. But what are the amorous strategies handed down since prehistoric times? And what can we learn from them about our own relationships and sexual desires? With infectious frankness, Dagmar van der Neut asks the most diverse questions about love, sex, loyalty and friendship in animals and humans. What was prehistoric sex like? Are women as chaste as they like to pretend? Is it true that swans are never unfaithful? Are handsome men lazy? Do cows have girlfriends too? Do we all love only ourselves? This book offers a witty and illuminating view of love and sex, and everything that has anything remotely to do with either of them.
