What does “casual sex” mean to you? Does it have only one definition or are there different kinds? How does your brain and your heart react to it? In the first episode of our two-part interview with Dr. Zhana Vrangalova, we discuss “casual sex” and hookup culture as well as the very wide spectrum of how we define casual sex, cultural differences in how we view it, and how self-esteem and dopamine play important roles.
Dr. Zhana Vrangalova is a researcher, sex educator, and adjunct professor at NYU.
