Big news! I’m launching a new podcast called Mating Matters with iHeartMedia on Valentine’s Day week. Listen to it on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll hear:
MATING MATTERS: IT’S WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO!
Hosted by Psychologist and Relationship Guru, Dr. Wendy Walsh, Mating Matters explores the secret evolutionary motivation for virtually every human behavior. We are here to reproduce and behind everything is a desire to increase our mating opportunity. Producer: Brooke Peterson.
Episode #1. HIDDEN EGGS
Conceded fertility in humans has contributed to the sexual double standard, good Dads, and strippers who make more money when they ovulate.
Episode #2. THE TROUBLE WITH TESTOSTERONE
How this hormone, can affect a man’s ability to fall in love and increase death rates. Can a nose spray of oxytocin knock out testosterone and make men kinder?
Episode #3. THE GOD THAT CLUBS
The sex rules created by religions to increase reproduction and membership! Hint: the more punitive the God, the faster a religion grows.
Episode #4. DATING APPATHY
How dating apps can change your brain and bio-hack your evolutionary programming… unless you use them correctly.
Episode #5. WHAT IS LOVE? HOLLYWOOD KNOWS
Art imitates life. The science of falling in love involves biological, social and psychological mechanisms. Dr. Wendy breaks down the underpinnings of everyone’s favorite drug, love using vibrant examples from your favorite movies.
Episode #6. SEXY MONEY
How the pursuit of money is really pursuit of sex for men. And why it works in reverse for women. Why singles pay more for sexual opportunity than they do for rent. Why prostitution rates rise when women are disadvantaged and why the price of sex drops drastically when women rise in economic power.
