  • Sex Science Social: Play Parties LIVE Videos!

    If I go to a play party, I’ll definitely get an STI. Sex parties are playgrounds for sexual assault and rape. People who go to sex parties can’t have serious, emotional relationships.

Dr. Brooke Wells was my special guest for this event, and she presented some of the brand new research on play parties and the people who

  • Sex Ed for Kids, Norwegian Style

    You all know how much sex education sucks in the U.S., right? If you don’t, this Last Week’s Tonight’s episode of John Oliver’s show gives a pretty good look into it. Things in much of Northern Europe are completely different. Sex education starts early and is quite comprehensive, access to condoms and birth control is easily accessible to everyone, and sexual health services are free. Guess what the outcomes are? The U.S. has the highest teen pregnancy, teen births, STIs among, and sexual shame all developed countries in the world; the Nordic countries have the lowest rates of all four. And now,

  • The Orgasm Gap, and How to Bridge It

    The orgasm gap between men and women is pretty staggering. Across a representative sample of Americans, for example, over 90% of men of all ages reported having an orgasm during their most recent partnered sex compared to only about 65% of women. Furthermore, while over 85% of men report orgasming often (more than 75% of the time) when having sex with a familiar partner, this was true for only half of heterosexual and bisexual women. A full fifth of women reported not orgasming ever or rarely (less than 25% of the time), compared to only 7% of the men. Lesbians
