Sex Science Social: Kink! Facebook Live Videos!

Only rare freaks are kinky.
Kinky people are mentally disturbed. 
Kinky desires are a result of sexual assault. 
Women are submissive, men are dominant. 

Every day we are bombarded with inaccurate, moralistic, and pseudo-scientific information and advice about sex and relationships. How do you figure out what’s true and what’s not? You go to the scientific research published in peer-reviewed academic journals. And if you don’t have access to or can’t be bothered to read all the boring science? You come to one of Dr. Zhana’s Sex Science Socials!

If you were unable to attend in person and missed the Live stream on Facebook, here is your chance to check out Sex Science Social: Kink!

The topic of this month was KINK/BDSM, which has been popularized by the unprecedented success of 50 Shades of Grey while continuing to be misunderstood, stereotyped, and stigmatized. Joining me is sex therapist Dulcinea Pitagora, MA, MSW, ME. In the videos, we share what we know from the latest published research to debunk some of the most common misconceptions about kink/BDSM, answering common questions like:
– How many people are kinky? 
– What are the most common kinks? 
– Are kinky desires a result of sexual assault or violent tendencies? 
– Are kinky people less psychologically healthy than vanilla folks? 
– What are the gender differences in sexual submission vs. dominance?

Due to some technical difficulties, the videos had to be broken up into smaller pieces, but the full talk from our Sex Science Social is here!

More Sex Science Socials are on the way, so stay tuned for the next live event coming soon!

If you like what you see and/or would like a copy of the slides, please donate what you can here and I’ll send you a copy.

  • Science. Education. eXperience.

    I had the honor of speaking at SEX.Postir, a Ukrainе-wide educational project about sexuality in public talk format. They’re using “SEX” as an acronym for three things I love talking about: Science, Education, eXperience. The mission of the project is to improve the sex education of society, with a slogan of “More knowledge, less shame!”. Those of you who’ve been following me for a while know that’s right up my alley. 😉 #legitsexscience Check out the video of the talk below! Comments comments

  • Fighting for Sexual Freedom 2017

    What a week Kenneth Play and I had participating at Naughty in Nawlins with over 2,000 attendees! Looking back on one of our favorite events of the week, the Sexual Freedom March, we were reminded of the progress made for LGBTQIA rights. 10 years ago, we couldn’t imagine one of the most powerful corporations in the world, like Apple, having an openly gay CEO. While it’s not a perfect analogy, we’re excited to see polyamorous and kinky communities striving for some of the same rights that LGBTQIA communities worked so hard to achieve. Diana Adams Law is an organization we admire that is doing tremendous work
