  • My TEDx Scoop on Casual Sex

    HOT OFF THE PRESS! You can now watch my talk on TEDx College of William & Mary Is Casual Sex Bad For You? Our understanding of American sexuality has come along way through social science research. However, 90% of our knowledge on casual sex from research is conducted on U.S. undergraduates and they are not the only ones having sex! This is why I started The Casual Sex Project so people from all demographic backgrounds can share their true stories of hookups.

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.
