PhD in Threesomes: TSOS Podcast Ep. 6!

Is it really “not gay if it’s in a threeway?”

This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I speak with Dr. Ryan Scoats, a man who according to the New York Post “got his PhD in threesomes.” Dr. Scoats got his BA (hons) and masters of research from the University of Bath, and his PhD in sociology from the University of Winchester, studying under Professor Eric Anderson. He is currently a researcher at Birmingham City University in the faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences, and his research focuses on masculinities, sports cultures, sexualities, identity, consensual nonmonogamy, and, obviously, threesomes.

Earlier this year, Dr. Scoats co-authored a study that showed a cultural willingness for heterosexual men to participate in not just FMF threesomes (involving two women), but also MFM threesomes (involving two men). Scoats and his coauthors “argue that this threesome experience is a component of cultural progression toward a more liberal, recreational culture of sexuality that encourages play and experimentation instead of a procreative model of sexuality.” To keep up with Dr. Scoats’s research, follow him on Twitter!

We started off with some heavier Foreplay, in which we discussed the recent allegations of sexual misconduct made against Kevin Spacey, by Rent star, Anthony Rapp. In a response to the accusations, Spacey, more or less, came out of the closet, an action he has since been heavily criticized for. On a lighter note, we also discussed pegging, a sex act that is becoming more and more popular, not just in the bedroom, but also in TV and film.

Finally, in Afterglow we went back to heavier topics, discussing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s decision to reverse many Obama-era guidelines in regards to Title IX, the federal law dealing with campus sexual assault. You might be surprised to hear my thoughts on this, so tune in now!

    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? And what is polyamory, exactly? Get the answers to these questions and more in this

  • 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!
