We are the only mammal which probably for reasons connected with our family structure, has used what were originally sexual behaviour for nearly all our social activities. Some apes use dominance, we use that too, but we sexualize it with love and dignity, The book make available an important and interesting account of relation between the sexes in primitive communities.
