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.

    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?

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!
