  • Sex Science Social: Infidelity (Pay What You Can)

    “Men are gay if they like anal play.” “Female ejaculation is pee.” “If your partner watches porn, he doesn’t love you any more.” Sound familiar?

    Yesterday, my Google alerts alerted me of an article in The Guardian, Is casual sex bad for your wellbeing?, which had mentioned my name. Publicity is usually great, especially when it comes from one of the top 5 UK newspapers, and even if you never actually got interviewed for the article.

The article introduces me as a

  • Periscope Re-Launch!

    As you may remember, for about ten months (until April of this year) I was doing daily sex education using the live streaming platform Periscope. As much as I loved it, I realized that scoping every day, sometimes multiple times a day, was not sustainable long term. However, I am happy to announce that the show is now officially back! This time as a weekly show, every Tuesday 11am-1pm EST. You can watch my first time back, last week here! From tomorrow on, we’ll do the show in a bit of a more organized manner. The new Dr. Zhana’s Legit Sex Science Show will include
