Coming Out in America – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep 35!

How has coming out changed in America?

Goes Deeper

Coming out as gay and bisexual has changed over the years, but there is also another layer to coming out and that is coming out as HIV-positive. Due to modern advancements in medicine, an HIV-positive status no longer implies a death sentence, so coming out becomes more complex. This week, we spoke to Dr Christian Grov on the studies he has conducted about coming out in America.

Dr. Christian Grov is a Professor in the Department of Community Health and Social Science. His research centers on the sexual health of sexual minority individuals, particularly gay and bisexual men. His work has explored substance use, sexual compulsivity, venues where individuals meet sex partners, and Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). His studies have been funded by both the NIH and CDC. He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Sex Research and serves on the editorial boards for AIDS and Behavior, Archives of Sexual Behavior, and the International Journal of Sexual Health. He has (co)authored over 100 publications including the book In the Company of Men: Inside the Lives of Male Prostitutes (Praeger). He has served as a member of the NYC Department of Health’s HIV Prevention Planning Group as well as the Board of Directors of HOOK, a non-profit dedicated to improving the health and well-being of men who are involved in sex work. Dr. Grov is an affiliated faculty member with the CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Population Health (ISPH). Collectively, his body of work seeks to inform HIV and STI prevention, education and health policy.

  • 11 Ways Sex Can Make You Healthier

    It’s not very often that we can say that something is fun and healthy, but lo and behold, sex happens to be both! Some of the positive health effects are more obvious, like the fact that sex is a bit of a workout (though, really, it depends on how vigorous your sex is) and it can improve your mood (duh). But some aren’t so obvious. Like for example, that sex and orgasms (well, mostly the orgasms) can strengthen pelvic floor muscles. As I mention in this Insider article I got interviewed for last week, orgasms cause the pelvic floor to contract,

Consent Happy belated New Year! Given that the holiday season is a time when a lot of people consume significant amounts of alcohol AND get frisky while under its influence, Joe and I thought we’d kick off 2019 with a Science of Sex Podcast episode that ties drinking and sexual consent. Specifically, how does being intoxicated impact people’s perceptions of their own and their friends’ ability to consent to sex? In her unusual “naturalistic bar study” (more on that in the podcast), Dr. Michelle Drouin from Purdue University enlisted drunken bar goers and their friends to take a

  • You Can Be in an Open Relationship without Going All the Way

    A lot of couples struggle to find complete sexual fulfillment in long-term monogamous relationships. However, opening up to consensual nonmonogamy carries its own set of challenges and fears. And the reality is, complete sexual and romantic openness (like, polyamory, for example) wouldn’t work for everyone either. Luckily, there’s a middle ground. Enter what the famous sex advice columnist Dan Savage called “monogamish”. “Monogamish” is a term to describe couples that are “…mostly monogamous but [engage in] some small amount of sexual openness,” as I explain in an interview for this Vice article “I Went to a Sex Resort to Try
