CAS Inquire - "Sexy Times Call for Sexy Measure: How Scientists Study Sexual Desire, Pleasure, and Orgasm" - Feb. 22nd, 2022
Presented by Tierney Lorenz, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology and Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior
Psychological science has revealed amazing things about how our brains and body create and react to feelings of pleasure from food, drugs, social interactions, smartphones – you name it.
Conspicuously missing from this list, though, is sexual pleasure: how do you even begin to study something so taboo, so messy, and yet so vital to human wellbeing?
Lorenz will give a tour of how we measure sexual response, what we’ve learned, and why pleasure matters for women’s mental and physical health.
