Popped My Podcast Cherry!

Great news for all you sex science enthusiasts: the first episode of The Science of Sex, a podcast hosted by Joe Pardavila and me, has landed! I am so excited about this project! I’ve been wanting to do a podcast about sex research for a while now, and it’s finally coming to fruition, in no small part enabled by my collaboration with Joe, a long-time contributor & pop culture expert with the Morning Show at WPLJ Radio in NYC.

In each episode of The Science of Sex, Joe and I will be reviewing recent sex science news, and going in-depth into one topic with a guest expert. In our first episode, Sexual Diversity in the United States, we talked about the groundbreaking study published in Plos One that dives into how many Americans are doing and desiring a wide range of sexual behaviors–never before studied using a nationally representative sample of US adults–from cuddling to whipping to threesomes. Our guest was Dr. Brian Dodge, one of the researchers who conducted the study. He talked to us a bit about their methods and things they had to leave out, and we picked his brain on what might be next in this field of research. We couldn’t cover everything, since the study is so comprehensive, but it was really fun to get a behind-the-scenes look at this study from Dr. Dodge!

The study is freely available online, if you’d like to explore the many tables and numbers yourself. And if you prefer a less academic-y read, here are a couple of articles based on this study that I wrote for Forbes. (Did I tell you I recently took up a blogging gig with Forbes, writing about the science of sexuality and sexual health? 😀)
And, this study is such a treasure trove of information, I can guarantee you there will be more Forbes articles about it to follow…

In episode 2 of the Science of Sex Podcast, we’ll be talking about the “Artificial Intelligence Gaydar,” a new study finding that computer algorithms can be taught to determine sexual orientation based on face photographs with much greater accuracy than humans can.

    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!
