What Turns On Women Who Are Into Casual Sex? – TSOS Podcast, Ep. 13!

Contrary to many popular stereotypes, there are many women who are as equally into casual sex as some men, but what do these women prefer when it comes to their partners?

Goes Deeper

A new study recently published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences found that women who are more interested in casual sex differ from women who are not into hookups in the kinds of men they’re interested in, especially when it comes to hookup partners as opposed to relationship partners. This week, Naomi Muggleton, the lead author on this study, is talking to us about her research on this topic.

Naomi Muggleton is a PhD student in Behavioral Science in the Psychology department at the University of Warwick, UK. Her work develops evolutionary theoretical models to understand what motivates societies to harshly suppress female sexuality. Her work also investigates how and why cultural factors can influence the type of men that heterosexual women are attracted to. She is particularly interested in the environmental triggers (e.g. socioeconomic, disease, income inequality) which promote sexual conservatism.


News broke earlier this week that the Center for Disease Control released a list of seven words that would be “banned” from any rhetoric coming from the CDC. However, the director of the CDC has released clarification on the so-called “ban” stating that these words should not be used in budget proposals for Congress. The seven words are: fetus, diversity, vulnerable, transgender, entitlement, science-based, and evidence-based.

A researcher in the psychology of sex has been found to have been fabricating studies. Dr. Nicolas Guéguen published several studies on such vital topics including whether women with larger breasts get more invitations to dance in nightclubs, whether women are more likely to give their phone number to a man if asked while walking near a flower shop, and whether a male busdriver is more likely to let a woman (but not a man) ride the bus for free if she touches him. It is not clear what will happen to this researcher.


A survey of 2,000 people on Plenty of Fish found that half of people polled admit they’ve previously kissed a co-worker at an office holiday party. This statistic is very interesting considering the ongoing conversation in the news about the fine line between flirtation and sexual harassment especially in the workplace. So how do we reckon with this type of romance?

    If you walk past it, you’ll never know it, but on the streets of Bushwick stands the Hacienda Villa, an intentional, sex-positive, polyamorous community co-founded by Andrew Sparksfire and my business partner Kenneth Play. Founded as a social experiment designed to celebrate sex, educate the curious, and dispel shame, the Hacienda is a growing phenomenon looking to change the narrative of how people approach relationships and create a community, right in the heart of Bushwick, a neighborhood filled with people living alternative lifestyles.  So how does the Hacienda work?

  • Why Pregnant Couples Should Totally Have Sex

    For many couples, pregnancy puts a stop to sex, often driven by the stigma around pregnancy sex. A recent study found that a couple’s attitude toward pregnancy sex affected their overall sexual satisfaction, such that couples with positive attitudes were more satisfied. The study also found that negative attitudes often stem from myths or other cultural beliefs that have no basis in science. As I urged in my recent newsletter, if you’re pregnant give yourself the right to be a sexual being and if your partner is pregnant work on overcoming the harmful beliefs and make your partner feel desired

  • What Squirting Is And Isn’t

    Squirting is a popular and hotly debated topic in both porn and sex science research, but we still know so little about it. What is squirting? Is it real? How does it work? Can all vagina-owners squirt? I answer many of your questions about this fascinating phenomenon in this Brides article I got interviewed for. But there’s still SO much we don’t know about it. So if you’d like to contribute to our collective knowledge of it, take the squirting survey that Kenneth Play and I put together. Anyone can take it, regardless of gender or squirting experience!
