Is dating a lopsided numbers game in which women are screwed? We talk to Jon Birger, author of Dateonomics (who says, yes, totally). We also debate when in a relationship the sex is best (why does it take people so long to figure out how to fuck each other properly?) and whether it’s possible to extract yourselves from a friends-with-benefits situation without kissing friendship good-bye. Join hosts Allison P. Davis, Maureen O’Connor, and David Wallace-Wells for this week’s podcast.
