Porn Ed – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 32!

What are the benefits of educating kids about porn?

Goes Deeper

A new study recently published in the American Journal of Sexuality Education reported on joint efforts by folks at Boston University and the Boston Public Health Commission to educate young people about pornography, in hopes that they would develop a more realistic understanding of what porn is, how it’s made, and how it relates to real-life sex and bodies. These programs have been proven to work and be extremely beneficial young people. On this week’s episode we spoke to the lead author on this study, Dr. Emily Rothman.

Emily F. Rothman, ScD, is a Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health with secondary appointments at the Boston University School of Medicine in Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine.  She is also a visiting scientist at the Harvard Injury Control Research Center. Dr. Rothman has authored more than 80 publications that span the areas of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, firearm violence, and pornography. She has been a PI or co-investigator on numerous federal research grants from entities including the NIH and NIJ , and worked closely with multiple state sexual assault and domestic violence coalitions, state health departments, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on issues related to sexual assault prevention.  Dr. Rothman received her master’s and doctoral degrees in public health from Harvard University.

Foreplay

A new study suggests that millennials are waiting longer to have sex with one in eight still virgins at the age of 26. This could be due to a “fear of intimacy” that is thought to be caused by social media. Many young people feel intense pressure due to the exposure of hyper-sexualized images in the mass media plus their own social media presence. Previous generations reported that one in 20 were virgins at this age.

  • 11 Ways Sex Can Make You Healthier

    It’s not very often that we can say that something is fun and healthy, but lo and behold, sex happens to be both! Some of the positive health effects are more obvious, like the fact that sex is a bit of a workout (though, really, it depends on how vigorous your sex is) and it can improve your mood (duh). But some aren’t so obvious. Like for example, that sex and orgasms (well, mostly the orgasms) can strengthen pelvic floor muscles. As I mention in this Insider article I got interviewed for last week, orgasms cause the pelvic floor to contract,

Specifically, how does being intoxicated impact people’s perceptions of their own and their friends’ ability to consent to sex? In her unusual “naturalistic bar study” (more on that in the podcast), Dr. Michelle Drouin from Purdue University enlisted drunken bar goers and their friends to take a

  • You Can Be in an Open Relationship without Going All the Way

    A lot of couples struggle to find complete sexual fulfillment in long-term monogamous relationships. However, opening up to consensual nonmonogamy carries its own set of challenges and fears. And the reality is, complete sexual and romantic openness (like, polyamory, for example) wouldn’t work for everyone either. Luckily, there’s a middle ground. Enter what the famous sex advice columnist Dan Savage called “monogamish”. “Monogamish” is a term to describe couples that are “…mostly monogamous but [engage in] some small amount of sexual openness,” as I explain in an interview for this Vice article “I Went to a Sex Resort to Try

Are women who carry condoms judged for it? Apparently, not by other women. According to a study with a sample of about 300 female Canadian undergrads, women rate female carriers more favorably than male carriers and believe that their female peers would do the same (or at least that they would not differently rate a condom carrier based on gender.) However, women don’t believe that men would agree with them on these ratings--the participants in this study thought that men would rate female condom carriers less favorably than male ones! Despite this last finding, participants in this study do not believe that society would harbor strong negative views toward either male or female condom carriers--which is perhaps a reflection of their status as college-educated.
