Monogamy Is Natural

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, Jan 19, 2011 at 1:26 PM

Science Daily:

A new study of 434 young heterosexual couples ages 18-25 found that, in 40 percent of couples, only one partner says the couple agreed to be sexually exclusive. The other partner said there was no agreement.

Remember, kids: monogamy is natural and normal and humans are a naturally monogamous species and we evolved in sexually exclusive pairs over hundreds of thousands of years... which explains why we're so bad at it.
