Let’s Talk About Sexts – TSOS Podcast, Ep. 14!

What do the sexting habits of adults 21 and over look like?

Goes Deeper

In a recent paper published in the Journal Sexual Health, researchers from Indiana University surveyed a nationally representative sample of almost 6,000 single US adults ages 21+ about their sexting experiences, sending and receiving sexually explicit text messages or photos. Dr. Justin Garcia, from the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University joined us to talk about the study.

Dr. Justin Garcia is Ruth Halls Associate Professor of Gender Studies and Associate Director for Research and Education at The Kinsey Institute, Indiana University, Bloomington. His research interests focus on the evolutionary and biocultural foundations of variation in monogamy, intimacy, dating, and sex. He has also been a scientific advisor to several industry partners, including K-Y Brand, Teva Women’s Health, WomanCare Global, and the online dating company Match.com.

Foreplay

The dating site, Plenty of Fish, released a survey of over 2,000 adults about who their holiday hookups tend to be. Surprisingly, a common response was…the ex. Another popular response was hooking up with a coworker.

Afterglow

A new study out of a University in the Netherlands found that there’s really no such thing as love at first sight. The researchers found that if someone said they’d fallen in love with someone at first sight, it was actually just because they thought the person was SUPER attractive. So maybe we should start calling it infatuation at first sight?

    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?

  • 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? Can all vagina-owners squirt? I answer many of your questions about this fascinating phenomenon in this Brides article I got interviewed for. But there’s still SO much we don’t know about it. 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!
