This week is the first holiday special of The Science of Sex, live from The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS). SSSS is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about sexuality, and in November, I attended their annual meeting in Atlanta. I was able to speak with professors, researchers, and students about several new studies, and even some that have not been published yet!
In my first interview I spoke with Dr. Dayna Henry from James Madison University about her study on how college students define and perceive sexual assault.
Next, Dr. Megan Maas, an assistant professor at Michigan State University, and I discussed her research on the backlash on Twitter after Donald Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood tape in which he brags about sexual assault.
I also was able to interview Dr. Ron Rogge from the University of Rochester on his study on dating apps such as Tinder and Grindr.
Margaret Bennett, a PhD student at the University of Connecticut, also spoke with me about her review on deception in casual and committed relationships.
Finally, Lauryn Vander Molen and I had a great discussion about her work studying paraphilia.
