THE INTIMATE ANIMAL: WHY WE LIVE AND DIE FOR LOVE
Research Director at The Kinsey Institute, Match.com Scientific Advisor, discoverer of the “Infidelity Gene,” and renowned expert on the science of love and sex, Dr. Justin Garcia reveals our intimacy instincts—and how the tensions between our competing evolved desires for love and sex explains the heartache and heartbreak of our romantic and sexual lives. These two biological systems are often in painful conflict. Garcia explains that these tensions play out in today’s digital age in complex ways, and that we are now in a global intimacy crisis because sex can be digitized by love cannot. He offers us the first evolutionary understanding of the entire life course of our intimate relationships —how we date, mate, break, and remake our love lives.
