On this episode of the Sexology Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Justin Lehmiller. We dive into the topic of sexual fantasies. He has done extensive research on this topic after wanting to systematically and scientifically study people’s fantasies.
There were seven things that seemed to categorize people’s fantasies with three being the most prominent – multi-partner sex, BDSM and novelty/adventure/variety and trying something new and different for you. These were common across ages and demographics.
Our fantasies say something about us. Culture also has a big influence on the content of our sexual imagination. Learn more about sexual fantasies and how best to explore and share them with your partner during this episode.
