  • 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.

  • 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.

They may have been–once upon a time when tattoos were much more risquee and fringe than they are today. But a new study published in Personality And Individual Differences found that these days they are not… or rather, not much. Psychologist Viren Swami and colleagues at the University of Westminster, London, wondered whether tattooed individuals would be more risk-taking, impulsive, and prone to boredom than their non-tattooed counterparts. If so, does more tattoos mean more risk taking and impulsivity? To find out, the
