The Lowdown on Hooking Up - Interview for May 2015 Sex Issue of South Africa @MensHealthMag

I was recently interviewed by a reporter for Men’s Health South Africa on hookups and their aftermath. It’s a longer piece that just came out in the May 2015 Sex Issue. Print only, no link online. But definitely worth checking out.

Sex researcher, blogger, educator
Introduction
I'm a sex researcher with a PhD in Developmental Psychology from Cornell University, where I studied how different aspects of sexuality (especially casual sex/promiscuity and mostly heterosexuality) are linked to health and well-being.

Currently an adjunct instructor at the NYU Psychology department where I teach Research Methods in Personality and Social Psychology this semester and Human Sexuality next semester. Soon-to-be a post-doc at the National Development and Research Institutes where I'll be studying substance use in the context of casual & group sex.

I blog bi-weekly about the science of casual sex on Psychology Today (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/strictly-casual), and tweet daily about cool new sex research (@ZhanaVrangalova).

Have a casual sex story to share with the world? I just started The Casual Sex Project just for that purpose. Check out the stories or submit your own.

Want to stay up to date with all my sex research- and sex education- related activities? Sign up for my monthly newsletter. Bonus: My three favorite sex studies of the month! (I promise not to spam you with irrelevant stuff or try to sell you things).
