Understanding Female Infidelity and Desire with Dr. Wednesday Martin


female infidelity

The data is wrong. Forever we've been told that men are more sexually promiscuous and have a need to 'sow their oats' while women are more fulfilled in long-term monogamous relationships because they value love, stability, and emotional connection more than men. Wrong. The data suggests that women are more sexually adventurous, promiscuous, and cheat more than men but because that goes against the popular narrative, we've been dismissing it. 

Dr. Wednesday Martin is an author, cultural critic, feminist, and her new book is all about female sexuality and female infidelity and it's called Untrue: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity Is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free. We debunk some pretty big myths and explore why we've been thinking about women's sexuality all wrong.

What you'll learn (or why you should care):

• Why women struggle more maintaining sexual desire in long-term monogamous relationships than men

• What to do when you no longer feel desirous of sex with your male partner

• How come women are more sexually adventurous and cheat more than we think they do
