It is well known that depression (and certain drug treatments for depression, notably SSRIs) can lower sexual interest, desire, and activity levels. However, it turns out that the story of how depression and sex are connected is more complicated than this. Depression is one of those things that can affect different people in very different ways. In fact, research actually finds that depression has the potential to both increase and decrease sexual desire and behavior. So how do we explain this pattern of results? Let's talk about it.  I am joined by JoEllen Notte, a writer, speaker, and mental health advocate whose work explores the impact of depression on sex and relationships. Since 2012 she has written about sex, mental health, and how none of us are broken on her award-winning site, The Redhead Bedhead. JoEllen is the author of The Monster Under The Bed: Sex, Depression, and the Conversations We Aren't Having as well as the upcoming book In It Together: Navigating Depression with Partners, Friends, and Family. Some of the topics we discuss include:  Why depression may lower sexual interest in some people, but increase libido for others. The sexual side effects of various antidepressant treatments. How to take control of your sexuality when you're depressed. How to work with your healthcare provider(s) to minimize side effects of depression medication and treatment. How to communicate with a partner about sex when you're depressed. Learn more about JoEllen at redheadbedhead.com. Thank you to our sponsors!

Dating - for most of us, it's a necessary evil. We fear rejection, don't know where to look for our people, or simply feel it's a hopeless waste of time. But as my guests on today's show can attest, the research behind dating may tell a different story. Today, I'm joined by Anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher and evolutionary biologist Dr. Justin Garcia of the Kinsey Institute. They pulled data from 5,000 American singles ages 18-89 as part of Match's annual Singles in America survey, and the results are fascinating. People dating more consciously - hookup culture is dead, and singles are prioritizing things like political awareness rather than looks. We'll unpack their findings and why today's singles should be more optimistic than ever about finding their match.Show Notes:Sexiest Gift Guide Ever: Emily's Picks for 2022 HolidaysArticle: Cold Weather Date Ideas7 New Ways to Use a Magic WandSingles in America StudyMore Dr. Helen Fisher: WebsiteMore Dr. Justin Garcia: Kinsey Institute Bio | Instagram | Twitter Hosted on Acast.

For decades, sex toys were largely marketed to women, with male sex toys really only starting to make an appearance in the last few years. Survey studies find that most adult men say they've never used a sex toy before (whereas most women have), and part of the reason for this is because male sex toys are more stigmatized. So let's normalize sex toys for men! My guest today is Jens Petter Wilhelmsen, CEO of Sweet Tech, the Norwegian company that designed and developed the Handy™, a revolutionary high-tech sex toy aimed at taking masturbation to new heights. Some of the topics we explore include: Why are there so many more sex toys for women than they are for men? Why are male sex toys more stigmatized, and what holds men back from exploring them? How do sexual wellness companies navigate the taboos around male sex toys? What is The Handy, and how is it different from other strokers and masturbators? How can sex toys benefit men's intimate lives beyond enhancing pleasure? What's the future of male sex toys? How do we cultivate a more sex-positive society where fewer taboos exist around masturbation and sex toys? Want to get your hands on The Handy?

In recent years, a growing number of women of reproductive age have started walking away from the birth control pill. In fact, one survey found that 70% of those who were using the pill said they had either stopped taking it or were thinking about going off of it in the last three years. Why are so many Gen Z and millennial adults going off the pill? What contraceptives are they using instead? And how is the U.S. Supreme Court's reversal of Roe v. Wade going to impact all of this? Let's talk about it. I am joined once again by Dr. Sarah Hill, an award-winning research psychologist and professor. She is author of the fascinating book Your Brain on Birth Control, The Surprising Science of Women, Hormones, and the Law of Unintended Consequences. Some of the topics we discuss include: The factors prompting a decline in birth control use among young women. Common myths about hormonal birth control. The rise of fertility-tracking apps, and what users need to know about them. Where we are in the search for a male equivalent of the pill. How changing access to reproductive rights is changing the conversations we're having around contraception.

In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom continues his discussion with Dr. Sue Carter, the former director of the Kinsey Institute and a world-renowned scientist. She talks about oxytocin's important role in human social behavior. She underscores the fact that oxytocin affects every tissue of the body and is the physiologic basis for pair bonding and relationships. Under stress, the body produces large amounts of oxytocin, and can help us make better judgments about who it is safe to connect with. She shares how her understanding of oxytocin grew out of her research studies on the social behavior of prairie voles. Sue Carter, PhD is the former director of the Kinsey Institute and a world renowned scientist. Her research program has discovered important new developmental functions for oxytocin and vasopressin, and implicated these hormones in the regulation of human connection and early social experiences. She is also studying oxytocin's implications for controlling stress and chronic pain.

Although the modern sex doll industry largely caters to straight men, a growing number of heterosexual women are getting in on the action by purchasing male sex dolls. Sex dolls for women have actually been around for more than a half-century, but they've changed quite a bit over the years. So who are the women buying male sex dolls? What are their reasons for purchasing them, and are they meeting women's needs? And why is there so much stigma around sex doll ownership? Let's talk about it! I am joined once again by Hallie Lieberman, a sex historian and journalist. She is also author of the book Buzz: A Stimulating History of the Sex Toy, which we discussed back in episode 21 of this show. Some of the topics we discuss include: The history of male sex dolls (it all started with "Big John!"). How many women have ever used a sex doll, and how much these dolls cost. What male sex dolls tend to look like. Women's reasons for buying sex dolls and how they're similar/different compared to men. Whether sex dolls are effective at satisfying sexual and other needs. Why sex dolls are more stigmatized than vibrators and dildos. The future of sex dolls for women.

As the Chief Science Advisor for Match.com and as one of the foremost researchers in the area of the neuroscience of love, sex, and relationships, Helen has conducted extensive research and written six books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, and gender differences in the brain. As a Senior Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute, she studies extensively how personality style shapes who you are and who you love.In this rich, revelatory episode, Helen and Melissa dive deep into Helen's vast, peer-reviewed learnings around the science of romantic love, attachment, and the evolution of courtship.Highlights:- Helen leads off the episode by painting a picture of the history of gender roles and relationship paradigms as the human race shifted from a hunter-gatherer society to an agrarian one, and then evolved again with the industrial age to where we are now.- Next, she discusses her broad sweeping research survey across a sample of millions. While the neurology of love is largely the same across culture, race, and sexual preference, courtship continues to evolve in new and compelling ways—from shifts in power dynamics of arranged marriages to those of video chat dates during the pandemic.- Building on that, she discusses the different relational dynamics at play with the different brain systems and chemicals involved, when it comes to romance, sexual attraction, and deep attachment. She also touches on the different personality types who tend to do better together.- Lastly, she shares her audacious wish for her work in personality science to break new ground in the business space. She believes understanding mother nature's recipe for the brain can help in how we reach different people, build better teams, lead, innovate, and ultimately win.

Some people want to have sexual and romantic relationships but are unable to do so. They are involuntarily celibate. For some, this perceived inability to form and maintain sexual and romantic relationships becomes a defining feature of the self---a social identity known as "incel." In the popular media, incels tend to be characterized as misogynists and male supremecists who are prone to violence. However, the truth about incels is more complex, and it turns out that the incels aren't exactly who we think they are. So let's take a look inside the minds of incels. I am joined by William Costello, a PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin, where he is a member of Dr. David Buss's Evolutionary Psychology lab. He holds a Masters in Psychology, Culture, and Evolution from Brunel University London and his dissertation investigated the psychology of incels. Some of the topics we discuss include: Why incels have always been around, and how modern incels are different. Why changes in the mating market are creating more incels. What do people who identify as incel look like? Do they match up with the stereotypes (i.e., young, White, conservative)? Why popular dating advice given to incels isn't helpful. What the mental health of incels looks like. Are incels inherently prone to violence?

In 1947, Dr. Alfred Kinsey established the Institute for Sex Research to protect and preserve his pioneering research on human sexuality. Later renamed the Kinsey Institute, the organization founded by Dr. Kinsey has continued his legacy for 75 years. While many other sex research institutes founded by pioneers in the field have shut down, Kinsey has survived by adapting to the ever-shifting sexual landscape and its researchers continue to break new ground in the field. In today's episode, we're going to discuss the past, present, and future of the Kinsey Institute. I am joined by Dr. Justin Garcia, the current director of the Kinsey Institute. Dr. Garcia is an evolutionary biologist and sex researcher whose work focuses on the evolutionary and biocultural foundations of romantic and sexual relationships across the life course. He is also a professor of gender studies at Indiana University and the scientific advisor to Match.com. Some of the topics we discuss include: How did the Institute originally came into existence, and how has its purpose and mission evolved over time? What are some of the biggest scientific contributions made by the Kinsey Institute that have changed the way people think about sex? What is the role of the Institute in preserving sexual and erotic art and history? (Fun fact: the Kinsey Institute is home to the world's largest collection of erotic art and artifacts outside of the Vatican!) What are some of the biggest challenges the Institute has faced over the last 75 years, and what are the modern challenges? What does the future hold for the Kinsey Institute?

On September 9, 2022, Indiana University (IU) issued a press release announcing that in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Kinsey Institute, the university has installed a life-size bronze statue of entomologist and pervert extraordinaire Alfred C. Kinsey after whom the Kinsey Institute is named. Demonstrating the astonishing ignorance and hypocrisy of leftists, the press release says, The sculpture's installation on the Bloomington campus demonstrates the university's pride in the living legacy of research and academic freedom Kinsey helped to forge and the institute's ongoing commitment to equity regarding sexual diversity established by Kinsey's research.

Your brain truly is your biggest sex organ, which means that if you want to have more--and better--sex, the key is really to make sure that you're in the right headspace. However, this is something that a lot of us struggle with. We're just not in the right place mentally in order for desire to set in, or to let go and become fully immersed in pleasure. We're too distracted. We're too stressed. We're constantly thinking about our own insecurities. But this doesn't have to be the case. So let's talk about how to change your mind so that you can change your sex life for the better. My guest today is Dr. Kelly Casperson, a urologist, sex educator, podcaster, and author of the new book You Are Not Broken: Stop Should-ing All Over Your Sex Life. Some of the topics we discuss include: Why mindset is everything when it comes to sex. Where to start when it comes to changing your sexual mindset. Why it's important to step back and analyze your own motivations for having sex. Are you usually looking to obtain something positive, or to avoid something negative? Why it's time to stop "should-ing" all over your sex life. Forget what you're "supposed" to do; instead, do what it is that you actually want to do. Why NOW is the time to start making changes. How to identify your sexual "accelerators" and "brakes." How to "show up" and be more in-the-moment during sex.

There are a lot of heterosexual women out there who enjoy watching man-on-man pornography. In fact, some of the most popular tube sites in the world have reported that gay male porn is amongst the most-watched genres by female visitors. So why is that? And why do so many of these women enjoy gay male porn more than heterosexual porn? Let's explore! I am joined by Lucy Neville, a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Leicester, a published writer of erotica (under a pen name), and pornography researcher. She is author of the book Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys. Some of the topics we explore include: How common is it for heterosexual people to watch gay porn in general? Why is straight porn often unappealing to heterosexual women? What do so many women find appealing about gay male porn? What role does sexual equality (i.e., versatility) have in the appeal of gay porn? "Gaypropriation": is it exploitative for women to consume gay male porn? Is the rise of porn made by women, for women changing what women seek in erotic content? Check it out! To learn more about Lucy, visit her academic page here and follow @blue_stocking on Twitter.
