WANNA HAVE SEX? (CONSENT 101)
In this video, Laci Green offers a basic overview to sexual consent: how to properly ask for consent, as well as what consent does and does not sound like. In the second half of the video, she discusses a few circumstances in which consent cannot be obtained (when the person is drunk, underage, or when you’re an authority figure). She concludes on the thought that cultivating a culture where good consent is the norm is one of the most powerful ways to prevent sexual assault, and we all have to be a part of it.

Sex Bytes 4 - Male Rank and Masturbation
Sure, we all engage in a little self satisfaction now and then. It’s perfectly natural, and there are many biologically relevant hypotheses to explain it. Recent work on Rhesus macaques has revealed that male RANK has a lot to do with incidence of masturbation - but there’s a wacky (pun intended) twist on the story that you won’t believe!!
This episode based on:
“Effect of Mating Activity and Dominance Rank on Male Masturbation Among Free-Ranging Male Rhesus Macaques”

Sex Bytes 103 Supersized Sex Cannibals
The ‘Aggressive Spillover’ hypothesis describes the behaviour of super-aggressive females. Not only do they attack and kill prey species, they attack and kill potential suitors even BEFORE they’ve mated with them! What is going on here? What could be the evolutionary explanation for these SuperSized Sex Cannibals?

Sex Bytes 102: Smelly Vaginas
Despite the fact that female humans are ‘concealed ovulators’, our bodies still provide pheromonal cues to indicate when we are ovulating (and most likely to become pregnant). The big question is: Can our male counterparts detect and interpret these signals?

SEX OBJECT BS
What is sexual objectification and why is it a big deal? In this video I give a (very brief) overview of our culture’s sexual objectification problem and how it contributes to gender & sexual inequality in every sphere of life — as well as perpetuating rape culture.
new video babes! in this episode I talk about how
✔society reduces women to things to have sex with
✔it’s so common it feels normal
✔sexual objectification directly contributes to rape culture
(New Sex+: SEX OBJECT BS)
We feel the title is fairly self explanatory.
I’d like to thank Hank for leading the humping-various-parts-of-Missoula movement. Without him this video would have been less … (whatever it is). So thanks Hank!

Ask Lindsey #7: What is love, Dan Savage, and complaints!
There was quite a bit of deliberation about this video. I don’t want to feed trolls. I do want to maintain dialogue. I think some people who post in the comments hate to hate; they eat anger for breakfast? Others are nerds like me who care about things like I care about sexuality. They have their experience, research, and education to draw from. They want to understand my decisions and support accurate sex education by guiding me along a smart path.
I don’t want to block dialogue because I’m afraid of the trolls.
This was all taken into account when I thought about addressing some of the hottest-button issues found in the comment section of Sexplanations’ videos. My thinking went like: Come out and use your words, especially when the talk is tough. You also have a smart path.
So after more than average advisement and many deep breaths, here are my responses to the heat of tweedle-beetle battles for all the world to see.
Does Pulling Out Work?
In which Lindsey talks about Withdrawal… Coitus Interruptus… Pulling Out! Is it a viable form of birth control?
You deserve comprehensive sex education.
