It’s no secret that humans are motivated by sex.

But just how deep does this drive go? When we examine our behavioral similarities and differences with other groups: our ancestors, other modern-day societies, and animal species—we can start to distill the mechanics of what actually lies beneath our sex drive.

That’s why on  today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Helen Fisher to discuss the ultimate question: is sex everything? Helen Fisher, PhD has conducted extensive research and written six books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how your personality style shapes who you are and who you love. She is currently using her knowledge of brain chemistry to discuss the neuroscience of business leadership and innovation.
