Play Parties: New Research on Who Attends and What Happens
Anecdotal evidence aside, very little is known about the people who attend play parties and what happens at these events. Last year, Dr. Zhana Vrangalova (NYU) and Dr. Brooke Wells (Widener University) decided to change that. Between April and December 2015, they collected online survey data from over 1,300 U.S. residents who had attended at least one play party (defined as a gathering of 6 or more where people openly engaged in sexual or kinky activities) in the past year. In this presentation, Dr. Zhana will share their findings on the demographic characteristics, psychological and relationship well-being, and sexual health of people who go to play parties as well as the sexual behaviors, condom use, substance use, and sexual consent experiences that occur at play parties.
Playing It Safer: Navigating Sexual Health when Having Multiple Partners
Most people think that monogamy is a safer option than nonmonogamy when it comes to protecting their sexual health. While that would be true in theory, it’s not necessarily true in practice. Research finds that people in consensually nonmonogamous relationships have similar rates of STIs as those in monogamous relationships – because not all supposedly monogamous people are faithful to their partners, and when they are, they are less likely to follow safer sex protocols. Indeed, people who are at at high risk for sexual and reproductive health outcomes due to their sexual behaviors (porn stars, sex workers, people in certain types of CNM relationships), often are particularly vigilant about and develop strict safer sex protocols to minimize these risks. But what exactly should be your safer sex protocol?
Sexual Fluidity: Heteroflexible, Bicurious, and Mostly Straight
The largest nonheterosexual group out is not gays, lesbians, or bisexuals. It’s the “mostly straights” – those with a slight degree of same-sex interests who are not exclusively straight, but not same-sex oriented ‘enough’ to consider themselves or to be considered by others as bisexual. Who are they and how do they differ from both exclusive heterosexuals and more substantial bisexuals in their sexual orientation profile, personality characteristics, life experiences, attitudes toward sexuality, and health outcomes and behaviors? In this class, we will summarize the research on people who identify as mostly straight, bicurious, or heteroflexible and discuss ways in which this new knowledge influences how we talk and think about sexual orientation in research, theory, practice, and our daily lives.
10 Dos and Don’ts for Healthy Hookups
From a Tinder swipe to a drunken hookup, there has never been a time in recent history when casual sex was more prevalent, accepted, and easily available. It is, therefore, imperative to arm ourselves with the right information and skills, backed by #LegitSexScience, to make smarter decisions about casual sex. Everyone deserves a healthy and authentic sex life where they feel empowered and self-expressed. In this course, Dr. Zhana uses empirical research of casual sex as well as the science of sex itself to teach people about healthier casual hookup practices and learn the scientific evidence that says casual sex might be good for you. Come learn how to find authenticity in casual hookups, choose your safer sex protocol, negotiate consent, design sustainable long-term relationships with casual sex, manage social stigma, and most importantly, give and receive pleasure!

The Art and Science Squirting
Squirting has been popularized by the porn industry and hyped up to be the sign of the ultimate female orgasm, the female “money shot” (or a party trick for men’s glory). There have been many debates about the makeup of the female ejaculate, and the limited amount of research on the topic combined with mixed messages from the media leaves much room for confusion about this mystery liquid.
Dr. Zhana will share what we know from the latest published research to debunk some of the most common misconceptions about female ejaculation, answering common questions like:
Can every woman squirt?
If you can’t squirt, is something wrong with you?
Does squirting always means an orgasm?
What is the makeup of female ejaculate?
What are the two types of female ejaculates?
Kenneth Play, who teaches hands-on Squirting PlayLabs worldwide, will be sharing what he’s learned from hands-on experience and teaching hundreds of new couples how to experience squirting for the first time.
