PhD in Threesomes: TSOS Podcast Ep. 6!

Is it really “not gay if it’s in a threeway?”

This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I speak with Dr. Ryan Scoats, a man who according to the New York Post “got his PhD in threesomes.” Dr. Scoats got his BA (hons) and masters of research from the University of Bath, and his PhD in sociology from the University of Winchester, studying under Professor Eric Anderson. He is currently a researcher at Birmingham City University in the faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences, and his research focuses on masculinities, sports cultures, sexualities, identity, consensual nonmonogamy, and, obviously, threesomes.

Earlier this year, Dr. Scoats co-authored a study that showed a cultural willingness for heterosexual men to participate in not just FMF threesomes (involving two women), but also MFM threesomes (involving two men). Scoats and his coauthors “argue that this threesome experience is a component of cultural progression toward a more liberal, recreational culture of sexuality that encourages play and experimentation instead of a procreative model of sexuality.” To keep up with Dr. Scoats’s research, follow him on Twitter!

We started off with some heavier Foreplay, in which we discussed the recent allegations of sexual misconduct made against Kevin Spacey, by Rent star, Anthony Rapp. In a response to the accusations, Spacey, more or less, came out of the closet, an action he has since been heavily criticized for. On a lighter note, we also discussed pegging, a sex act that is becoming more and more popular, not just in the bedroom, but also in TV and film.

Finally, in Afterglow we went back to heavier topics, discussing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s decision to reverse many Obama-era guidelines in regards to Title IX, the federal law dealing with campus sexual assault. You might be surprised to hear my thoughts on this, so tune in now!

  • Marijuana Users Have More Sex

    As marijuana use continues to grow in the United States, we are starting to learn more about its effects on our behavior. A new study using a nationally representative sample of over 50,000 US residents ages 15 to 44 found that, on average, marijuana users have more sex than nonusers. For example, women who reported no marijuana use during the past year had sexual intercourse 6.0 times on average during the past 4 weeks compared with 7.1 times for women who reported daily marijuana use. For men, these numbers were 5.6 for nonusers and 6.9 times for daily users. Increased sexual frequency was also

    Can porn negatively impact a marriage? Goes Deeper This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I went deeper into a rather controversial topic involving the impact that watching pornography can have on marital quality and longevity. We interviewed Dr. Samuel L. Perry, an assistant professor of sociology and religious studies at the University of Oklahoma, about two of his recent studies, both of which included nationally representative samples of married US adults that were followed over several years. One study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, found married persons who watched porn more often in 2006 reported significantly lower levels of
