As a culture, we love monogamy. But is it counterintuitive to our nature? By Anna Pulley As a culture, welovemonogamy. It’s the ultimate romantic promise and the only sanctioned way we are allowed to conduct ourselves in relationships. We even sign legal contracts with the government saying as much (though one wonders why such a proclamation is necessary if sexual fidelity is supposedly so easy). Yet, despite the romantic ideals of monogamy that are taught to us in America (and, indeed, the entire Western world), humans—both men and women—are quite bad at monogamy. How bad? Well, 40 to 50 percent … Continue reading 4 Reasons Humans Are So Bad at Sexual Monogamy

This spring, the journal International Archives of Medicine published a delicious new study: According to researchers at Germany’s Institute of Diet and Health, people who ate dark chocolate while dieting lost more weight. The media coverage was instantaneous and jubilant: “Scientists say eating chocolate can help you lose weight,” read a headline in the Irish Examiner. “Excellent News: Chocolate Can Help You Lose Weight!” Huffington Post India boasted. “Dieting?
