El sexo del futuro será polígamo

Ve preparándote: el reinado de la monogamia tiene los días contados.

La monogamia ha sido la forma de relación predominante a lo largo de la historia de la humanidad. Salvo algunas excepciones contadas (los mormones, por ejemplo), la gran mayoría de culturas que han existido durante los últimos 6.000 años han rechazado que una persona tenga más de una pareja al mismo tiempo. Pero eso está a punto de cambiar; y quizá para siempre. Según la investigadora Helen Fisher, de la Universidad Rutgers, la idea de lo qué es un matrimonio "ha cambiado más rápido en los últimos 100 años que en los diez mil anteriores y van a cambiar aún más en los próximos 20 años". Y pone como ejemplo el cada vez mayor número de parejas que aceptan los encuentros ocasionales de su pareja con otras personas. "También se da con más frecuencia el poliamor y los matrimonios en grupo", asegura la investigadora quien recuerda que, a diferencia de las monógamas, "las relaciones polígamas ofrecen un mayor nivel de satisfacción y contribuyen a reducir los niveles de estrés, paranoia y celos". Una puerta abierta a la poligamia que, a tenor de lo expuesto, ya nunca más va a cerrarse.

There’s a pervasive notion that monogamous relationships are the end-all-be-all – the default pact in human couplings that keep the fabric of society from being torn apart. But growing numbers of scientists believe monogamy is not our biological default; and may not even represent the best road to happiness.

Nearly all mammalian species demonstrate sexual promiscuity. Even mate-for-life prairie voles, the animal kingdom’s poster child of monogamous relationships produce pups from different fathers twenty percent of the time. Moreover, say historians, for humans, promiscuous behavior is not new at all.

    Anthropologists have uncovered clues to how our Paleolithic ancestors lived. Before the advent of agriculture, humans faced a short, brutal lifespan. Some survived to age 50, but most died young or at birth with average life expectancy in the 30-to-40 range.

With such a short lifespan, ancestral children were likely to experiment with sex by age six. Most couples lived in temporary relationships, and being unfaithful was common for these cave dwellers.

When our forbears found themselves in an unhappy situation, they simply walked away and found another cave. Scientists believe that hunter-gatherers had sex mostly for fun, not just to reproduce.

Rutgers University researcher Helen Fisher has written five books on the future of human sex, love, and relationships, and she believes that marriage has changed more in the last 100 years than the previous 10,000, and it could change more in the next 20 years than it did in the past 100!
