  • BDSM vs Rape Culture – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 19!

    Do consent-oriented communities (like BDSM) experience lower levels of rape culture? Goes Deeper A study published in 2016 in the Journal of Sex Research, aimed to explore whether communities that emphasize consent see less rape culture than our mainstream society. It compared various communities (college campuses, BDSM, and workplaces) to find out how the levels of sexism, victim blaming, sexual aggression and more stood. Turns out that the BDSM community saw the lowest level of these rape-culture associated ideas. To talk about this study, Joe and I interview the lead author on this study, Dr. Kathryn Klement.

  • Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Cuckolding: TSOS Podcast Ep. 17

    Could cuckolding be a positive thing for some couples? Goes Deeper A new study just published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior investigated fantasies about and experiences with cuckolding in a large and diverse sample of gay-identified men. The study was picked up by the media, with CNN reporting “Cuckolding could be positive for some couples”, and FoxNews and other conservative media mocking CNN for doing it. Another fun tidbit about this study is that one of its authors is someone who most listeners are probably familiar with but is not a scientist and has never published an academic

  • Orgasms for Dummies – TSOS Podcast, Ep. 16!

    It might not be a surprise that, on average, straight women orgasm less frequently than straight men when it comes to their sexual encounters, but why is this? Goes Deeper A 2014 nationally representative study of Americans ages 18-59 found that 91% of men but only 64% of women reported orgasm during their most recent partnered sex. However, lesbians orgasm much more frequently and reliably than heterosexual and bisexual women, but for the men, there are fewer, if any, sexual orientation differences when it comes to orgasm frequency. A new study published in Archives of Sexual Behavior earlier this year

  • Are Bearded Men More Sexist Than Their Clean-Shaven Peers?

    Two contrasting studies have people wondering: are bearded men generally more sexist than those who are clean shaven? In some cultures, having facial hair is a signaler of masculinity and general attractiveness, but in many of these cultures, masculinity is also associated with sexism, so researchers theorized that men with beards could be more misogynistic than those without. In order to test this hypothesis, they had over 500 men from the U.S. and India complete an online survey where they reported on their views toward women and the type of facial hair they had. Two types of sexist attitudes were

  • Understanding Male Sexual Aggression: TSOS Podcast, Ep. 12!

    Our news cycle has been filled with countless examples of male sexual misconduct, from sexual assault, to harassment, to just general creepiness across virtually every profession and social sphere. With the exception of our groper-in-chief, this has professionally hurt pretty much all of these men, and while we seem to be doing better at holding the perpetrators of these crimes accountable, we are still having trouble identifying why these acts of sexual misconduct are so widespread. To help us explore this question, we interviewed someone who’s been studying male sexual aggression for almost four decades: Dr. Neil Malamuth at UCLA. Dr Malamuth is an
