Keeping the Spark Alive – The Science Of Sex Podcast Ep. 34!

How can couples keep desire alive in long-term relationships?

Goes Deeper

Earlier this year, the Journal of Sex Research published a paper that reviewed research from 64 empirical articles all of which tried to answer the question of how to maintain sexual desire in long term relationships. To discuss the results of this research, we spoke with one of the lead authors of the paper, Dr. Kristen Mark.

Dr. Kristen Mark is an Associate Professor in Health Promotion at the University of Kentucky. She is also the Director of the Sexual Health Promotion Lab and the Faculty Fellow for the Office of LGBTQ* Resources. Dr. Mark’s research centers around sexual well-being with an emphasis on the importance of sexual pleasure and satisfaction to the study of sexual health. Her work has been published in over 50 peer reviewed academic journals and she has presented her work at more than 100 national and international conferences. She also regularly contributes to popular media outlets to digest scientific findings for the public. To learn more about Dr. Mark, visit her website: www.kristenmark.com

Foreplay

The U.S. fertility rate is the lowest it’s been in 40 years and the decline is sharpest for minority women. This could be due to the fact that having children is extremely expensive in the U.S. with new families receiving little no government aid when a child is born, unlike some European countries.

Apparently, Netflix might not be the best thing to do with your significant otherA new study proclaims that couples getting into bed and watching their own shows on different devices could be cutting down on romantic time. A previous study reported that couples were less interested in being intimate due to watching TV in bed.

    If you walk past it, you’ll never know it, but on the streets of Bushwick stands the Hacienda Villa, an intentional, sex-positive, polyamorous community co-founded by Andrew Sparksfire and my business partner Kenneth Play. Founded as a social experiment designed to celebrate sex, educate the curious, and dispel shame, the Hacienda is a growing phenomenon looking to change the narrative of how people approach relationships and create a community, right in the heart of Bushwick, a neighborhood filled with people living alternative lifestyles.  So how does the Hacienda work? And what is polyamory, exactly? Get the answers to these questions and more in this

  • Why Pregnant Couples Should Totally Have Sex

    For many couples, pregnancy puts a stop to sex, often driven by the stigma around pregnancy sex. A recent study found that a couple’s attitude toward pregnancy sex affected their overall sexual satisfaction, such that couples with positive attitudes were more satisfied. The study also found that negative attitudes often stem from myths or other cultural beliefs that have no basis in science. As I urged in my recent newsletter, if you’re pregnant give yourself the right to be a sexual being and if your partner is pregnant work on overcoming the harmful beliefs and make your partner feel desired

  • What Squirting Is And Isn’t

    Squirting is a popular and hotly debated topic in both porn and sex science research, but we still know so little about it. What is squirting? Is it real? How does it work?

So if you’d like to contribute to our collective knowledge of it, take the squirting survey that Kenneth Play and I put together. Anyone can take it, regardless of gender or squirting experience!
