Could cuckolding be a positive thing for some couples?
A new study just published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior investigated fantasies about and experiences with cuckolding in a large and diverse sample of gay-identified men. The study was picked up by the media, with CNN reporting “Cuckolding could be positive for some couples”, and FoxNews and other conservative media mocking CNN for doing it. Another fun tidbit about this study is that one of its authors is someone who most listeners are probably familiar with but is not a scientist and has never published an academic article before: Dan Savage. We spoke with the lead author of the study, Dr, Justin Lehmiller.
Dr. Justin J. Lehmiller received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Purdue University. He is currently the Director of the Social Psychology Graduate Program at Ball State University and a Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute.
A new survey of more than 20,000 U.K. employees uncovered nearly 90 percent of them admitting to some form of sexual interaction in the office. Although office relationships are often discouraged in most corporate environments, the dating app survey found that sexual activity inside office workplaces is quite common. Among the 20,238 British people surveyed by Saucy Dates, 87 percent said they “have engaged in sexual activity” in the office at some point throughout the span of their career.
New research from Confi, a digital health startup founded at Harvard Business School, shows that men and women have different expectations when it comes to sex. The survey looked at 1,200 young people between 18 and 25, the majority of whom identified as straight. 45% of men surveyed said they expect vaginal sex from someone who goes home with them after a party. But when you consider the fact that just 31% of women said the same, you can really see the problem: there’s a 14 percent disparity of expectations. That means that 14 percent of the time there may be men expecting sex that women aren’t planning on having.
