Dr. David Buss

Dr. David Buss is an evolutionary psychologist at The University of Texas at Austin ( He enjoys the study of behavior genetics where his books "The Evolution of Desire" and "The Murderer Next Door" explore sexual desire and homicide, respectively. His latest book is "Why Women Have Sex: Understanding Sexual Motivations from Adventure to Revenge (and Everything in Between)." In all his works, Buss describes the results of research for various aspects of mate selection, either good or bad. From why men and women pick their partners to how a murderer takes rejection poorly.
In the end, if you want to have sex with a woman, make sure you smell good. And, if you have homicidal fantasies, you are not abnormal. Just be sure not to live out the fantasies. That is where the lines cross between Buss’ research on human sex differences to his darker sides where conflict leads to death and destruction. This has led to his latest obsession with stalking where you want what you cannot have. Given his past research and book projects, this should lead to an interesting next title.
