  • The Real ‘Fifty Shades’: HuffPost Love & Sex Podcast (AUDIO)

    As Valentine’s Day was approaching and the 50 Shades of Grey movie was coming out, everyone wanted to have a story on BDSM. I sat down with Carina Kolodny & Noah Michelson, the hosts of the Huff Post Love & Sex podcast to discuss the realities behind BDSM and kink, and the inaccuracies within 50 Shades. Check out the episode on The Real ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’; it also features an interview with two dominatrixes and a trip to Paddles, New York City’s only public BDSM club.

Is there a neural correlate to #nonmonogamy? A new study with a sample size of 10 monogamous and 10 non-monogamous men (mean age of 34) sought to find out. In this study, researchers examined participants’ brain activation in response to sexual and romantic stimuli. Results indicated that monogamous men showed more reward-related neural activity when viewing images designed to evoke the concepts of #love and #romance (including images independent of the participants’ own relationships) compared to non-monogamous men. Areas with increased activation for monogamous men were all in the right hemisphere and included the thalamus, accumbens, striatum, pallidum, insula, and orbitofrontal cortex. There were *no* significant differences between groups in activation to sexual stimuli. These results demonstrate that the neural processing of romantic images is different for monogamous and non-monogamous men, suggesting that non-monogamy is not just a random choice.
