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 accepting of extramarital sex compared to previous generations. They also, on average, are more likely to have fewer partners or be entirely sexually inactive and have sex fewer times per year than both Baby Boomers (born 1945-1964) and Generation Xers (born 1965-1981).

On this episode’s Foreplay, we discuss some good news for the transgender and gender non-binary folks the new California law recognizing Nonbinary as a third gender option on drivers licenses and birth certificates as well as Playboy’s first transgender playmate.

During Afterglow, we talk about a recent study published by Coventry and Oxford University claiming that having sex at old age can make you more intelligent.

    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!
