    What is sexual orientation and do women have one? Goes Deeper Sexual orientation, although widely agreed upon to exist, is still disputed by some in the scientific community.

  • Straight-ish – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 23!

    What does it mean when someone identifies as “mostly-straight?” Goes Deeper Ever since the development of the Kinsey scale for sexual orientation, there has been significant research on sexual fluidity. While some easily self-identify as gay, straight, bisexual, or pansexual, there are others who’s sexual orientation isn’t as clearly defined by society.

  • Who’s More Distracted During Sex: Straights or Gays?

    Think about having sex. Now think about what you like to think about while you’re having sex. Am I gonna get an STI? Do I look fat? Is this immoral? When is that conference paper due, again? Is this weird-looking thing that I’m sucking on her clit? These are probably not the thoughts you want to be thinking, right? Yet such cognitive distractions can and do happen to all of us at some point during sex. And when they do, unsurprisingly, they negatively affect sexual functioning and satisfaction. So who is more distracted, men or women, gays or straights, and
