Life lessons
  • Sex matters. In all aspects of our lives, it's good to ask, "what does sex have to do with it?"
  • Sex can be as addicting as cocaine. "When our desire for 'more sex' interferes with our family or professional lives, we are looking for love in all the wrong places."
  • Many of us settle for sex when we're really looking for love.
  • There is a strong drive to be part of a male tribe.

  • The same forces that bring us together within a tribe often pit us against other tribes. "For humans there is always a selfishness at the group level. Humans nearly always put Us ahead of Them."

  •  The way we treat "them" is the way we ultimately treat ourselves.
