Host 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. We are wired to reproduce. 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 us all. 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 sex, violence and other aspects of the human condition that may be challenging. Adult language is used periodically.

Love this show!!
As a woman this show is so validating. I’ve noticed a lot about my own sexuality and the differences in gender and sex. This show explains how hormones and evolution are behind those differences and my own preferences. It’s so helpful and reassuring. I love it thank you for this podcast. I’d be interested in hearing an episode about monotony, polyamory, open relationships and how evolution or biology leads to varying desires for those kinds of relationships.
Upset about no old episodes
I didn’t finish listening to the older episodes but now I can’t finish them because they are not on here anymore.
Always a unique take on this subject. I do wish it came out on a more consistent time schedule.
