#48 – Why Are People Into BDSM?

Interest in sexually aggressive and humiliating acts (from biting & spanking, to spitting and verbal humiliation) might be far more common than we think. And, perhaps more controversially, there might be some evolutionary bases for some of our BDSM desires! In Episode 48,  Dr. Zhana and Joe talk to Dr. Menelaos Apostolou from the University of Nicosia, Cyprus, about his theories and research on this that really push the boundaries.


#47 – Do Sluttier People Make Worse Romantic Partners?

Some people are far more interested in and comfortable with casual sex, a trait called unrestricted sociosexuality. In Episode 47,  Dr. Zhana and Joe ask a question that’s on a lot of people’s minds: Are these “sluttier” folks (and we use this term lovingly and without judgment) less satisfied in and committed to their partners in long-term romantic relationships compared to their more “restricted” peers?
