Using women's own words, and backed by extensive scientific evidence, Why Women Have Sex delves into the use of sex as a defensive tactic against a mate's infidelity, a ploy to boost social status, a barter for household chores, and even as a cure for a migraine headache. Clinical psychologist Cindy M. Meston and evolutionary psychologist David M. Buss examine the deep-seated psychology and biology that often unwittingly drive women to have sex, sometimes in pursuit of joy, and sometimes for darker, more disturbing reasons.
Cindy M. Meston is one of the world's leading researchers on women's sexuality, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, and director of the Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory. David M. Buss, one of the founders of evolutionary psychology, is a professor at the University of Texas at Austin and is the author The Evolution of Desire and The Dangerous Passion.
