Dr. Wendy Walsh uses science, personal interviews and pop culture to reveal that mating strategy is the secret evolutionary motivation for most every human behavior. Let’s face it, we are wired to reproduce. So powerful is this instinct that it has secretly embedded itself in almost every human behavior. But we are so used to being human and hanging out with humans that most people can’t see it. Even when we are not thinking about sex, our ancient programming makes us respond to reproductive cues that impact just about every decision we make. Using evolutionary psychology, Mating Matters examines relationships, sexuality, and how society and culture shape human behavior. Dr. Wendy Walsh looks at the biological, psychological and sociological underpinnings of love, attachment and gender dynamics. Visit www.DrWendyWalsh.com for more.

Please be aware this podcast talks scientifically about topics that include love, sex, violence and other aspects of the human condition that may be challenging.

Dr. Wendy Walsh is Ahhhmazing

Honestly best informational podcast I’ve ever listened too. Dr. Wendy is so unbelievably intelligent across broad scopes of human evolution and mating topics. You can genuinely hear her passion when discussing the topics. And she answered my call in question which answered so many unknowns I had about my life which is greatly appreciated! 10/10 recommend to ANYONE!!
