  • The Top 5 Reasons Marriages And Cohabitations End

    Most of the studies focusing on divorce and the ending of relationships and cohabitations are based on qualitative research, not quantitative but a new study out of the UK overcomes the disadvantages of past research and provides a clearer insight into why live-in partnerships come to an end. The data come from NATSAL-3, a nationally representative survey of over 15,000 UK residents ages 16-74 interviewed between 2010 and 2012. Overall, 11% of the men and 14% of the women in the sample reported they experienced the end of a live-in partnership (marital or cohabiting) in the 5 years prior to interview (2% of men’s and

  • All About Asexuality: TSOS Podcast Ep. 7!

    We often talk about issues regarding the gay, lesbian, and bisexual communities, but what about those who identify as asexual? On the latest episode of The Science of Sex, Joe and I dove into an interesting yet rarely discussed topic of conversation all about asexuality and its relationship to mental health. Our guest on the show was Lara Greaves, a student in her last month of a PhD in the School of Psychology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Her research is broadly in the area of social psychology and includes everything from indigenous voter turnout to the psychological recovery

  • PhD in Threesomes: TSOS Podcast Ep. 6!

    Is it really “not gay if it’s in a threeway?” This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I speak with Dr. Ryan Scoats, a man who according to the New York Post “got his PhD in threesomes.” Dr. Scoats got his BA (hons) and masters of research from the University of Bath, and his PhD in sociology from the University of Winchester, studying under Professor Eric Anderson.

Sexual attraction vs. romantic attraction. Yes, there's a difference! Sexual attraction is about who you want to fuck. Romantic attraction is about who you fall in love with. Both are usually discussed in terms of the gender of the people you're attracted to.

They often go hand in hand, especially among folks who are on either end of the sexual orientation spectrum (completely straight or completely gay) or people who are demisexual (only sexually attracted to someone after they've developed romantic attachment to them). Such folks tend to be sexually attracted to the same gender that they're romantically attracted to.

For bisexual people, the two often diverge. Many bisexual people are more sexually attracted to women but more romantically interested in men. Or vice versa.

Divergence in sexual vs romantic attraction can also apply to traits other than gender, like people's physical appearance or personality traits. You may be sexually attracted to athletic, dominant people but romantically attracted to kind, funny people. Our hearts and genitals sometimes like the same thing, sometimes they like different things.

When people feel this divergence, it can be confusing. It can complicate your labels and your identity. But it's perfectly normal and common!

There might be some evolutionary reasons behind it (for example, our genitals are more interested in good genes, our hearts in good long-term partners and parents). Or not. It doesn't really matter. You can choose how you want it to impact your life and to what extent you want to take action based on your sexual attraction or your romantic attraction.

Recognizing your romantic attraction and your sexual attraction doesn't have to be complicating. It can be an opportunity to better understand yourself and your desires ... See MoreSee Less
