Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2011/02/22/Glenn_Wilson_Sex_Wars British psychologist Glenn Wilson asserts that evidence of promiscuity in primates can be determined anatomically. Wilson compares the genital size and sexual practices of several primate species, including orangutans and chimpanzees with that of humans. Wilson argues that like most primates, "humans are not naturally monogamous." ----- Why do the "selfish genes" of men and women sometimes create conflict? How do monogamy, polygamy and infidelity stack up in terms of adaptive value? Is sex addiction a real disease or just an excuse for bad behaviour? The distinction between explanation and moral justification. Reconciling the discrepancy between male and female instincts. - Gresham College As well as being one of Britain's best-known psychologists, Glenn Wilson is the Visiting Gresham Professor of Psychology.
