Interview with David Buss about his book When Men Behave Badly: The Hidden Roots of Sexual Deception, Harassment, and Assault. Discusses what sexual conflict is, from an evolutionary perspective; the evolutionary roots of behaviours like sexual deception, harassment and assault; sociocultural perspectives about sexual conflict, and how they complement evolutionary psychology; rape, mate-guarding behaviour, and mate value discrepancies and their effects; evolutionary mismatches in sexual conflict; possible evolutionary explanations for the #metoo movement and the incel movement; possible strategies to prevent sexual violence; and using evolutionary psychology to improve their relationship satisfaction.

The Modern Wisdom interview with David Buss is also worth a listen.
