  • Oh, The Guardian: Journalists Getting Things Wrong (about Sex and Stuff)

    Yesterday, my Google alerts alerted me of an article in The Guardian, Is casual sex bad for your wellbeing?, which had mentioned my name. Publicity is usually great, especially when it comes from one of the top 5 UK newspapers, and even if you never actually got interviewed for the article. Alas, the article turned out to be, not only a poorly and hastily put together smorgasbord of studies about casual sex with no coherent answer to the question posed in the title, but also gets me and what I have to say about casual sex wrong. The article introduces me as a

  • Periscope Re-Launch!

    As you may remember, for about ten months (until April of this year) I was doing daily sex education using the live streaming platform Periscope. As much as I loved it, I realized that scoping every day, sometimes multiple times a day, was not sustainable long term. However, I am happy to announce that the show is now officially back! This time as a weekly show, every Tuesday 11am-1pm EST. You can watch my first time back, last week here! From tomorrow on, we’ll do the show in a bit of a more organized manner. The new Dr. Zhana’s Legit Sex Science Show will include

Do gentlemen really prefer #blondes? A new #evopsych study with a sample of 110 male undergraduates (87% white) sought to find out. Results showed that hair color and to a lesser extent length *do* affect perceptions of personal characteristics. Specifically, lighter hair (#blond and #brunette) was associated with perceptions of #youth, #health and #attractiveness to a greater extent than was black hair, and generally led to more positive perceptions of relationship and parenting potential. The findings for hair length were somewhat less consistent, but they generally suggested that longer hair was associated with youth, enhanced relationship potential, perceptions of #promiscuity and somewhat diminished perceptions of parenting potential. The takeaway? For men, women’s hair can serve as a cue to desired relationship and parenting characteristics.
