Sex At Dawn – Our Bonobo Cousins & Their Community
Packed full of expert opinion as well as comedic points of view, this Queer 4 Your Ears review of the amazing book ‘Sex At Dawn’ by Cacilda Jetha & Christopher Ryan, looks at how homosexuality, bisexuality, multiple sex partners, and shared parenting were all hallmarks of human cultures in pre-agriculture and pre-religious times, and indeed still are practices known to some cultures living today as well as in the communities of our closest living relative – the Bonobo. The Bonobos live in peaceful and sharing communities without war, jealousy, hierarchies or aggression. Could it be their sexual freedoms that make all this possible? What can we learn from them?
