American Sex Podcast Episode 59: Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals - The Sociology of Sex
Dr. Chauntelle studies the sociology of sexuality and sex work. This fascinating conversation integrates the economics, ethics, psychology, politics, and marketing of sex -- all critical components of sexual freedom we're not accustomed to thinking about.
We discuss: Why researchers shy away from studying sexuality; how our social and cultural discomforts with sex permeate everything; Stormy Daniels and how she's single-handedly extinguishing puritanical biases about sex work; the impact of technology on sex; why VISA and Mastercard are at the helm of shaping your sexual preferences and regulating your access to porn; the realities of robot sex and more!
