The Lost Sex Study

Seeking to test the Freudian notion that civilization is a byproduct of repressed sexuality, British scholar J.D. Unwin studied eighty-six cultures spanning five thousand years of human history and found that Freud was wrong. He found, without exception, cultures thrive when they restrict sex to marriage.
