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 a far cry from most of the other websites out there run by self-proclaimed "sexperts" who spout advice based 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.
This website is run by Dr. Justin J. Lehmiller, who received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Purdue University and currently teaches in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. He conducts research on topics including secret relationships, prejudice and stigma, sexual orientation, and friends with benefits. Dr. Lehmiller has published more than 25 scholarly works to date, including articles in some of the leading journals on sex and relationships, several book chapters, and a textbook (A Social Psychology Research Experience). His research has been featured prominently in numerous media outlets, including The Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, The Globe and Mail, Men’s Health, and The Sunday Times. In addition, he has appeared on several episodes of the television program Taboo on the National Geographic Channel as well as the web series HuffPost Live to talk about sex and love from a scientific standpoint. He writes a column entitled Lusting, Loving, and Leaving on the Science of Relationships website and is a guest contributor on Good in Bed. He is currently working on a book entitled The Psychology of Human Sexuality.
