The Psychology of Human Sexuality blog made its debut exactly one year ago today and has grown and changed in ways I could not even begin to imagine when it started. My initial plan was to update the blog just once per week with some commentary on recent sex studies. However, there was far more demand for responsible, science-based information about sex than I thought. Plus, it turns out that writing about sex is pretty fun (who knew, right?). I have gone from posting once per week to 3-4 weekly entries that vary in focus, ranging from question and answer, to media fact checks, to videos, to book reviews, to highlights of cutting-edge research.
I can’t thank you all enough for reading the blog, sharing the stories, submitting your questions, and weighing in with your perspectives. The Psychology of Human Sexuality has quickly become the most rewarding aspect of my job and it’s all because of you. I hope you’re looking forward to another year of great sex as much as I am! In the meantime, here are some fun facts and statistics about the site I’ve complied for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!Read More
Every Friday on the blog, I answer sex questions submitted to me by actual college students. This week’s question comes from a reader of the blog who wanted to know what advice I have to offer the aspiring Dr. Ruths of the world.
I am currently a psychology student and I am looking into studying sex and relationship therapy for a career, which lead me to find your website on the Psychology of Human Sexuality. I was wondering if you have any advice for me in regards to graduate school or internship opportunities in the field.
