Today we’re chatting with the super fascinating Wednesday Martin, PhD. In this episode, we go to a lot of places we’ve never gone before on this podcast.

Wednesday has worked as a writer and social researcher in New York City for over two decades, and she’s here to share about her latest book, Untrue, where she talks about the new research on female sexuality, monogamy, non-monogamy, and more!

You’re going to hear why nearly everything we believe about women, lust, and adultery is wrong, and how the new science can set us free. If you’re in a relationship or are a parent, the insights revealed in this episode will help you navigate both worlds. We can’t wait to hear what you think of today’s interview
