ZHANA VRANGALOVA, PHD

My name is Dr. Zhana Vrangalova and I’m a NYC-based sex researcher, writer, and educator.

I have a PhD in Developmental Psychology from Cornell University, where I studied how different aspects of sexuality (especially casual sex/promiscuity and mostly heterosexuality) are linked to health and well-being. I am currently an adjunct professor at the NYU Psychology department where I teach the first Human Sexuality course this department has offered in a long, long time.

I continue to do research and publish in academic journals (view my CV here). My latest research project is Play!, an online survey about sex/play parties and the people who attend them; currently in the process of analyzing this data!

I also write about the science of casual sex and nonmonogamy on Psychology Today; give evidence-based, educational talks/workshops about casual sex, non-monogamy, and “mostly heterosexuals”; and tweet daily about fun new sex research (a follower once had this to say about my tweeting: “DrZhana‘s tweet stream is like falling into an actual stream. Made of brains. Instead of water.” Follow me: @DrZhana.)

Have a casual sex story to share with the world? I started The Casual Sex Project just for that purpose. Check out the stories or submit your own.
