Devlin exhibits that the breakdown of monogamy ends up in promiscuity for the few, loneliness for almost all, and sadness for all.
Every revolution supplies upward push to a response. Devlin, notwithstanding, is particularly severe of mainstream conservative responses to the sexual revolution, which regularly eerily echo feminist proceedings approximately blameless ladies being preyed upon by means of depraved males who needs to be scolded and punished. the main arguable point of Devlin’s paintings is his argument that today’s sexual dystopia is rooted simply as a lot in women’s nature as men’s, exploring such taboo subject matters as woman hypergamy (mating up), narcissism, infidelity, deceptiveness, and masochism. via exhibiting their organic foundation, F. Roger Devlin deals a non-traditional safeguard of conventional sexual morals and associations and exhibits us the way in which out of today’s sexual dystopia.
