  1. “Science Café – Sex in the Modern Era – The Psychological Science of Human Sexuality” online with the Museum of Nature & Science and Sigma Xi

    March 5, 2021, 5:30 PM @ This presentation is recommended for ages 18 and up. Please contact Stephanie at shawkins@las-cruces.org to request a link to the program or go to zoom.us with webinar ID: 89605494014.

    Would you “ghost” someone? How do our attachment styles affect our online social media behaviors? Do our motivations to have sex differ by gender identity, race/ethnicity, and sexual orientation? The study of human sexuality is a growing subdiscipline in the psychological sciences that encompasses a wide range of human behaviors and cognitions. As a basic human drive, understanding the motivations of and ways that people learn about sexual behaviors, as well as how to engage in safer sex practices, are all important components of helping people lead fulfilling and happier lives. What we know about sex and how people communicate and engage in sex is changing. This presentation will offer a variety of current research being conducted in the human sexuality subfield, focusing on how we learn about sex and what motivates us to have sex through quantitative and qualitative research methods.
