Sex. Time and Power
Very readable prose loaded with dubious claims about females, such as his claim that females often get a terrific orgasm as they give birth. The baby's head coming down the birth canal triggers "the G spot." Huh?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Even so, he raises many interesting issues of how the needs of females were the driving force behind evolution, pointing out that the first "tool" was probably a sling used to hold babies. Since hominins didn't have a furry coat for a neonate to grab onto, a mother had to hold it in her arms. Making a sling out of animal skins freed up her hands for gathering berries and other foods.

Great for book groups!
Our book group recently finished this book. It prompted much discussion. He raised so many ideas and questions that we hadn't thought about previously. He also did so at a level we could understand, and incorporated a sense of humor throughout. His research is phenomenal. Well worth your time.Was this review helpful?
