Sexual Dysfunction: TSOS Podcast, Ep. 10!

How common are sexual problems and when should they be a cause for concern?

Goes Deeper

On this week’s episode of The Science of Sex, Joe and I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Kirstin Mitchell about her research on sexual function and disfunction. Dr. Mitchell is a Senior Research Fellow at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow, where she leads a theme of research on Families and Intimate & Sexual Relationships. We spoke with her about a few studies that she has published in regards to sexual dysfunction.

Over the last 3 years, several studies have been published on the sexual functioning and dysfunction among UK residents. They are all based on the Natsal-3, a nationally representative sample of over 15,000 men and women aged 16–74 years in Britain. The questions included everything from lack of interest in sex, orgasm difficulties, erection and lubrication difficulties, dissatisfaction with and distress about their sex lives, discrepancy in sex drive between partners, and seeking help.


This week’s foreplay steered back into our discussion about sexual assault when we talked about the accusations against NBC’s Matt Lauer and the investigation by Variety. Lauer was fired from the network on Wednesday after a complaint was made about his behavior in the workplace. There is no news on whether the network will honor his $25 million contract that is not set to expire until the end of 2018.


The President of Wilfrid Laurier University has officially apologized to teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd for a meeting where faculty members reprimanded her for showing students a video clip of a debate involving controversial professor Jordan Peterson. The clip was of a debate regarding gender-neutral pronouns.

    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!
