Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships
“Sex at Dawn challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way. By examining the prehistoric origins of human sexual behavior the authors are able to expose the fallacies and weaknesses of standard theories proposed by most experts. This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly.” — Andrew Weil, M.D.
“Sex at Dawn irrefutably shows that what is obvious—that human beings, both male and female, are lustful—is true, and has always been so…. The more dubious its evidentiary basis and lack of connection with current reality, the more ardently the scientific inevitability of monogamy is maintained—even as it falls away around us.” — Stanton Peele, Ph.D.
A controversial, idea-driven book that challenges everything you (think you) know about sex, monogamy, marriage, and family. In the words of Steve Taylor (The Fall, Waking From Sleep), Sex at Dawn is “a wonderfully provocative and well-written book which completely re-evaluates human sexual behavior and gets to the root of many of our social and psychological ills.”
“I lost my husband to a sex robot.” You’ll start hearing women saying those ominous words in the next 7 to 10 years. And when it happens, we’ll all ask: How did we get here? With humor and insight, Rise of the Sex Machines lays out how culture and technology are hurling us toward the end of romance, relationships, and love. They’re even changing the nature of sex itself.We have devolved to a culture of “insta-sex,” where you can get your orgasm to go. Just look at Tinder and the “swipe-right/swipe-left” culture in selecting your preferred mates. Like many other aspects in our lives we demand instantly—food, music, books, movies, market information, banking, ride-hailing—we’re beginning to expect our sex to be also fast and easily accessible. And people are deciding relationships are just too damn hard. That involves time in caring, being attentive and being selfless. What matters to many is the narcissistic immediate gratification. So sex robots–what’s not to like? You’ll get your sex quickly and just the way you like it. She won’t get older, fatter or uglier on you. You can always upgrade or just replace her. You can never “cheat” on her, and she can’t cheat on you. And she’ll never accuse you of harassment, rape or assault. From the ever-waning interest in religion, to feminism’s dismissal of men, to the new “masculinity is toxic” movement, to people choosing not to get married or have children, and to the ever-expanding embrace of multiple sexual identities and sexual freedom, author Barak Lurie shows us the factors that are conspiring to push us into the arms of sex robots. And brace for a shocking ending. It’ll be a twist you never saw coming.Sex Robots will be a reality. They’re already here, growing exponentially in numbers. They cannot be stopped. The more important question is: Who will resist?

A comic book for kids that includes children and families of all makeups, orientations, and gender identities, Sex Is a Funny Word is an essential resource about bodies, gender, and sexuality for children ages 8 to 10 as well as their parents and caregivers. Much more than the “facts of life” or “the birds and the bees,” Sex Is a Funny Word opens up conversations between young people and their caregivers in a way that allows adults to convey their values and beliefs while providing information about boundaries, safety, and joy.
The eagerly anticipated follow up to Lambda-nominated What Makes a Baby, from sex educator Cory Silverberg and artist Fiona Smyth, Sex Is a Funny Word reimagines “sex talk” for the twenty-first century.
