"Hooking Up Healthy" with Dr. Zhana Vrangalova

  • The Pleasure Chest 7733 Santa Monica Boulevard West Hollywood, CA, 90046 United States (map)

There are plenty of pop-culture sex gurus out there, but few who are able to appeal to the general public AND incorporate legitimate science. Dr. Zhana is one of them. She's got a PdD from Cornell and teaches at NYU. Dr. Zhana is compelling and charming and sure to teach you something new in a fun, entertaining way. She's bi too!

Event Description: Casual sex gets a bad rap. It is often accused of being harmful for your physical, mental, and relational health. But what does research really say about this topic, and are things really that simple? Perhaps not all casual sex encounters are equally harmful (or beneficial) and not all people are equally sensitive to these harmful (or beneficial) effects. In this evidence-based workshop, Dr Zhana, a sex researcher who studies hookups among young people, will help you determine whether you’re the right kind of person to hook up, and if you decide to engage in it, how to do it in a way that keeps both partners happy and healthy.
