DSC00753 - CopyMy name is Zhana Vrangalova and I’m a NYC-based sex researcher, writer, and educator.

I have a PhD in Developmental Psychology from Cornell University, where I studied how different aspects of sexuality (especially casual sex/promiscuity and mostly heterosexuality) are linked to health and well-being. Download my research papers from my Academia.com profile.

I am currently an adjunct professor at the NYU Psychology department where I teach the first Human Sexuality course this department has offered in a long, long time.

I blog about the science of casual sex on Psychology Today.

I tweet daily about cool new sex (and some other fun psych) research. A follower once had this to say about my tweeting: “DrZhana‘s tweet stream is like falling into an actual stream. Made of brains. Instead of water.” Follow me: @DrZhana.

I give evidence-based, educational talks/workshops about casual sex, non-monogamy, and “mostly heterosexuals”. Check out the list of talks/workshops here.

Have a casual sex story to share with the world? I started The Casual Sex Project just for that purpose. Check out the stories or submit your own.

I upload all my Powerpoints from conference presentations, workshops, and courses on Slideshare. Feel free to take a look.

Need a sex researcher to talk to for a newspaper article, podcast, radio or TV show? Email me at zhana.vrangalova@gmail.com – I’m always happy to talk to the media about sex science.

  1. Right now it looks like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on
    your blog?

    • Wrong kind of doctor Ahtsham!

      May I say, the casual sex project is amazing and it has really made casual sex so much open for discussion. I really think it’s wonderful. I submitted a story myself ^^ Thankyou Dr Zhana!

  2. Thanks for your reply Dr Zhana. Why do you think their opinion is hilarious? The author seems to have research chops, being a statistician. I would love if you could refute his opinion, I am quite offended by his opinion, being a supporter of your work.
