  • Having an Epic Sex Life When You’re Worried about “Catching Feelings”

    Check out this video from Elite Daily for a behind-the-scenes peek into my sex coaching services, the way we do it together with my business partner Kenneth Play! What constitutes an epic sex life? Most people probably imagine something of a crossover between a Hollywood romantic comedy and a mainstream porn shoot. But in reality, an epic sex life is having the kind of sex life that is fully authentic to you (that is, in line with your desires and your moral values), and which allows you to nourish the three basic psychological nutrients all humans need to survive and

  • Study Finds Disturbing Conclusion About ‘Revenge Porn’ But Experts Are Dubious

    Gizmodo recently reached out to me to comment on a new study that claims that 99% of people approve of revenge porn. For anyone who doesn’t know, revenge porn is posting intimate photos of other people online without their consent, as retaliation against them for hurting you. This can obviously be very damaging for many people; the publishing of sexy or nude pictures has ruined many people’s careers. Yet, according to this study, virtually all of its 100 respondents (most of whom women), “expressed at least some approval (e.g. did not feel remorse) of revenge porn”.  As you can read in the Gizmodo article, several scholars, myself

  • Pornography’s Global Impact

    I’m excited to share that I’ve been featured in a short film on a topic that a lot of people have strong feelings about: porn.  Here’s how the Media Education Foundation describes the project: In her riveting new short film Pornography’s Global Impact, Dr. Chyng Sun, the director of The Price of Pleasure: Pornography, Sexuality, and Relationships and a professor at NYU, explores how Internet pornography has shaped attitudes and behavior in Taiwan, one of the world’s most lucrative porn markets. The film features Taiwanese men and women who speak with striking frankness about the ways pornography has shaped their relationships, their sexual imaginations, their

  • Is Consensual Non-Monogamy Right for You?

    Consensual Non-Monogamy (CNM) has gained in popularity quite a bit recently. Recent studies found that 30% of men and 20% of women in the U.S. currently in a relationship have some level of openness and 50% of men and 30% of women described their ideal relationship as “somewhat open.” This recent video produced by ATTN about polyamory has received almost 3 million views in just a few months. It is clear that Non-Monogamy is being talked about and explored more now than ever: While CNM relationships can have some wonderful pros, at least for some people, they also carry with

  • Sex Science Social: Kink! Facebook Live Videos!

    Only rare freaks are kinky. Kinky people are mentally disturbed.  Kinky desires are a result of sexual assault.  Women are submissive, men are dominant.  Every day we are bombarded with inaccurate, moralistic, and pseudo-scientific information and advice about sex and relationships. How do you figure out what’s true and what’s not? You go to the scientific research published in peer-reviewed academic journals. And if you don’t have access to or can’t be bothered to read all the boring science? You come to one of Dr. Zhana’s Sex Science Socials! If you were unable to attend in person and missed the

Sexual attraction vs. romantic attraction. Yes, there's a difference! Sexual attraction is about who you want to fuck. Romantic attraction is about who you fall in love with. Both are usually discussed in terms of the gender of the people you're attracted to.

They often go hand in hand, especially among folks who are on either end of the sexual orientation spectrum (completely straight or completely gay) or people who are demisexual (only sexually attracted to someone after they've developed romantic attachment to them). Such folks tend to be sexually attracted to the same gender that they're romantically attracted to.

For bisexual people, the two often diverge. Many bisexual people are more sexually attracted to women but more romantically interested in men. Or vice versa.

Divergence in sexual vs romantic attraction can also apply to traits other than gender, like people's physical appearance or personality traits. You may be sexually attracted to athletic, dominant people but romantically attracted to kind, funny people. Our hearts and genitals sometimes like the same thing, sometimes they like different things.

When people feel this divergence, it can be confusing. It can complicate your labels and your identity. But it's perfectly normal and common!

There might be some evolutionary reasons behind it (for example, our genitals are more interested in good genes, our hearts in good long-term partners and parents). Or not. It doesn't really matter. You can choose how you want it to impact your life and to what extent you want to take action based on your sexual attraction or your romantic attraction.

Recognizing your romantic attraction and your sexual attraction doesn't have to be complicating. It can be an opportunity to better understand yourself and your desires ... See MoreSee Less
