  • STI Reality Check: Swine Flu is Worse than Chlamydia!

    A guy once told me he’d rather get hit by a car than get oral herpes. Thinking rationally, that makes absolutely no sense. A car hit can kill you or permanently injure you, affecting dramatically your quality of life. Oral herpes–the virus that causes cold sores on the lips–is something that over 60% of the U.S. population has. Aside from being annoying, itchy, and a bit painful for a few days when you have an outbreak, oral herpes really doesn’t affect your life that much. But when it comes to STIs, we’re not thinking rationally. Our fears, instilled in us by systematic and pervasive

  • Guest Lecture by Kate McCombs

    This past Tuesday I had invited the amazing sex educator Kate McCombs, MPH, to do a guest lecture on STIs and safe sex for my Human Sexuality class at NYU. One reason is, I admit, I don’t like talking about the nasty bugs very much, but there was a more important reason: I knew that Kate was that rare person who could teach about STIs without scaring people about them or stigmatizing the people who have them, and could actually make safe sex sound fun and sexy.

What types of relationships are Americans having? A new study on Americans’ sexual #diversity sought to find out. As part of this study, researchers asked 1,420 partnered participants to indicate whether that #relationship was—during the past year—entirely #monogamous, monogamous but sexless, supposedly monogamous, an #openrelationship; or whether they had not discussed their relationship structure. In thinking about the past year, most of the participants reported being entirely monogamous (78%). More than 1 in 10 partnered respondents were currently in monogamous but sexless relationships (12%). Additionally, 4% were supposedly monogamous, 1.6% reported being in an open relationship, 2.5% had not discussed their relationship structure, and the remaining 1.4% identified their relationship in some other way. The takeaway? Despite growing representations in mainstream media of open relationships, the vast majority Americans are still wedded (pun intended) to #monogamy.
