  • Managing Low Sexual Desire – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 31!

    What are some ways that people can manage low sexual desire? Goes Deeper Low sexual desire is something that is more common than most people think.

On this week’s episode, we have Dr. Lori Brotto discussing her extensive research on treatment for low sexual desire, specifically in women. Dr. Lori Brotto is

  • Pedophilia Explained – The Science of Sex, Ep. 26!

    Things got a little heavy in this episode where we talked to James Cantor about his research. Goes Deeper We often think of pedophilia as a sexual attraction towards minors, but that’s actually not true. Western culture has become accustomed to viewing anyone under the age of 18 as a child, however biologically “children” become “adults” at a much earlier age. On average, puberty occurs between the ages of 10 and 14 for girls and 12 and 16 for boys. While boys and girls can reach sexual maturity before the age of 18, we, as a culture, have decided that,

  • Do Women have a Sexual Orientation? – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 25!

    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.

Speaking with us about his work on sexual orientation on this episode is J. Micahel Bailey. J. Michael Bailey has been involved in research in a wide variety of fields and has one of the most diverse research programs of anyone in Canada.

  • Sex Science Social: Are Open Relationships Right For You?

    “If my partner wants an open relationship it means they are unsatisfied with me.” “I would get too jealous if I were in an open relationship.” “An open relationship will create distance between my partner and I.”   Every day we are bombarded with inaccurate, moralistic, and pseudo-scientific information and advice about sex and relationships. How do you figure out what’s true and what’s not? One special evening each month, Dr. Zhana hosts an evening of geeking out over sexual science on a current, interesting, and useful topic followed by a BYOB social with like-minded folks at the gorgeous Hacienda

  • 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. Some folks feel as though they are “mostly” gay or straight, but many confuse this concept with bisexuality. On this week’s episode we were able to speak with Dr. Ritch Savin-Williams (who also happens to have been my PhD advisor at Cornell) on his extensive research on sexual

  • Wrap Your Thing Right – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 22!

    What are some of the most popular condom errors and how common are they? Goes Deeper We’ve been actively talking and educating about condoms for decades now, and if people would only listen to scientists and public health professionals, everyone would be wrapping it up all the time! But that doesn’t seem to be the case, and too often, condoms don’t get used, and sometimes they get used but fail, and people end up with unwanted pregnancies and STIs. So Joe and I sat down with Dr. Cynthia Graham and discussed her research on these errors. Cynthia Graham is a

  • To Shave or Not To Shave – The Science of Sex Podcast Ep. 21!

    Is there a relationship between pubic hair and STD’s? Goes Deeper Pubic hair isn’t as popular as it once was. The majority of both men and women have engaged in some sort of grooming ‘down there,’ whether it’s some basic ‘manscaping’ or waxing everything off. But have you ever wondered if having (or not having) pubic hair made a difference in your susceptibility to STI’s? Turns out, not having any pubic hair may actually increase the chances of contracting an STI. To talk about the study that focuses on pubic hair, we interviewed Dr. Benjamin Breyer. Dr Benjamin Breyer is
