Did you know women walk more, eat less, socialize more, meet more men, dance more and flirt more when they’re ovulating? Or that PMS may have evolved to get rid of boyfriends with unfit sperm? Behind the “fickle” differences in what women find sexy about men, or what they like to wear, there's a hidden adaptive intelligence that has been shaped over eons. 

In this provocative and paradigm-shattering book, Martie Haselton, the world’s leading researcher on sexuality and the ovulation cycle, takes a deep, revealing look at the biological processes that so profoundly influence our behavior and sets forth a radical new understanding of women's bodies, minds and sexual relationships, one that embraces hormonal cycles as adaptive solutions to genuine biological challenges. At the core of Hasleton’s new Darwinian Feminism is her remarkable discovery that humans, like our animal cousins, possess a special phase of sexuality, called estrus, which comes with a host of physiological and behavioral changes.

Rigorously researched, entertaining and empowering, Hormonal offers women deep new insights into their bodies, brains, relationships and affairs, allowing them to make better-informed choices about sex, marriage, friendship, contraception and more. Above all, Hormonal is a clarion call to appreciate and embrace the genius of female biology. 

Martie Haselton, PhD, is the world's leading researcher on how ovulatory cycles influence women's sexuality. She is a professor of Psychology at UCLA and the Institute for Society and Genetics, edited the leading journal in the field, Evolution and Human Behavior and directs the Evolutionary Psychology Lab at UCLA.
