About The Psychology of Human Sexuality And Dr. Lehmiller
The Psychology of Human Sexuality was created in order to share the science of sex, love, and relationships in a way that is both engaging and accessible. It is departure from most of the other sexual advice websites out there, which are run by self-proclaimed experts who base their information largely upon their own personal experiences and beliefs. This is not a personal, opinion-based blog; rather, each article on here is rooted in science and actually cites the original research sources. The goal is for readers to learn responsible information about sex and relationships and to correct the numerous myths and misconceptions that actively harm our sexual health and well-being.
This website is run by Dr. Justin J. Lehmiller, who received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Purdue University and is currently a sex educator and researcher in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. He conducts research on topics including secret relationships, casual sex, sexual orientation, and friends with benefits. Dr. Lehmiller has published more than 30 scholarly works to date, including articles in some of the leading journals on sex and relationships, several book chapters, and two textbooks. He is frequently interviewed by numerous media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, CNN.com, The Globe and Mail, and The Sunday Times, and was recently named one of 5 "Sexperts" You Need to Follow on Twitter by Men's Health. Dr. Lehmiller has appeared on several episodes of the television program Taboo on the National Geographic Channel and is a frequent guest on HuffPost Live and RadioMD. He also writes for Science of Relationships, is a guest contributor on Good in Bed, and is a freelance writer for major publications, including Playboy.
