Ostrolenk speaks with Dr. Brandon, clinical psychologist and sex therapist, on an evolutionary perspective of our primal instincts. Dr. Brandon discusses how our culture encourages us to both overthink sex and try to make it politically correct. Rather, she argues, there are sexual differences between men and women that our primal instincts want to seize upon. Although developing a sexual passion based on power dynamics may seem at odds with what we believe to be healthy, Dr. Brandon describes how to capture on the primal brain inside the bedroom and the modern brain outside of it.
