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.
