  • Sex and Pregnancy: TSOS Podcast, Ep. 11!

    We love talking about sex, but what about sex during pregnancy and after childbirth? Goes Deeper Earlier this year, two researchers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha published a review paper summarizing what we know from research about sexual behaviors during pregnancy and the year after childbirth. They combed through 56 empirical studies published in the academic literature since 1996, and found that, in general, there was a gradual decline in vaginal intercourse over the course of pregnancy and the first couple of months post-childbirth. This week we were able to interview the lead author on this paper, Dr.

  • Marriage and Porn: TSOS Podcast Ep. 9!

    Can porn negatively impact a marriage? Goes Deeper This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I went deeper into a rather controversial topic involving the impact that watching pornography can have on marital quality and longevity. We interviewed Dr. Samuel L. Perry, an assistant professor of sociology and religious studies at the University of Oklahoma, about two of his recent studies, both of which included nationally representative samples of married US adults that were followed over several years. One study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, found married persons who watched porn more often in 2006 reported significantly lower levels of

  • A Woman’s Brain During Orgasm: TSOS Podcast Ep. 8!

    What is really going on in the female brain before, during, and after an orgasm? This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I talk to Dr. Nan Wise, a licensed psychotherapist, cognitive neuroscientist, certified sex therapist, board certified clinical hypnotherapist, and certified relationship specialist with three decades of experience. Her research at Rutgers University has addressed gaps in the scientific literature regarding the neural basis of human sexuality, and has as a result, garnered international attention.

  • PhD in Threesomes: TSOS Podcast Ep. 6!

    Is it really “not gay if it’s in a threeway?” This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I speak with Dr. Ryan Scoats, a man who according to the New York Post “got his PhD in threesomes.” Dr. Scoats got his BA (hons) and masters of research from the University of Bath, and his PhD in sociology from the University of Winchester, studying under Professor Eric Anderson.

  • Millennials vs. Gen X: TSOS Podcast, Ep.5!

    Are Millennials really the “hookup generation”? In this week’s episode of The Science of Sex, Joe Pardavila and I talk to Dr. Brooke Wells, an associate professor and director of the PhD program in Human Sexuality at Widener University, about four of her published studies that reveal surprising information about Millennials’ sexual behaviors and attitudes. Millennials were shown to more more accepting of premarital and same-sex sexual activity, and they were more likely to engage in same-sex sexual behavior, however, contrary to the popular belief that Millennials are a more sexually liberated generation, these studies show that Millennials are actually even less
