The Evolution of Desire by David M. Buss PhD

Sperm Wars

Sperm Wars by Robin Baker PhD

Why and how both men and women make evolutionary rational decisions to cheat.

This book blows the lid off male and female infidelity using 30+ real-world case studies described in graphic detail and explains each one using evolutionary biology and evolutionary psychology.

An absolute must-read for all men to understand why women are commonly cheaters today now that feminism allows them to get away with it legally while still taking your house / alimony / child support, and why all men must beware of significant rates of paternity fraud, especially now child support is enforced against kids that DNA tests prove aren’t yours.

Supported by other scientific books such as the excellent Evolution of Desire further down, as well as The Red Queen, and Sex At Dawn.

Sperm Wars by Robin Baker PhD

The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

The Red Queen by Matt Ridley

A classic on this topic.

Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships

Sex at Dawn by Christopher Ryan PhD and Cacilda Jetha PhD

This is a more recent book that Richard Cooper often cites. However, it is not the best on the topic for one very serious flaw – it has a feminist slant. In the classic comparison between Gorillas vs Chimps vs Bonobos that most evolutionary biology books do – this one supposes that a bonobo future, the most feminist egalitarian one – is not that bad, when in reality it is actually pretty dire.

Bonobos are the exception to the primate rule because they don’t have the same evolutionary competition pressures. For humans to become closer to bonobos, rather than chimpanzees would be to downgrade the human species in order for feminists to have their cake and eat it too. However, we know women are strongly hypergamous. Still, it’s worth a read and makes this shortlist.
