Canada Leads Sexuality Research

Progressive attitudes and research funding have led Canada to become the premier nation for new studies on sex and sexuality, says The Globe and Mail. “This stands in stark contrast to the United States, where funding bodies are squeamish around research that doesn’t focus strictly on disease and prevention – the scariness of sex, in other words. For years, top researchers feared their work wouldn’t land American funding, so they migrated to Canada and built robust investigative teams here instead.” The Globe and Mail interviews leading sex researchers Meredith Chivers, Lucia O’Sullivan, Terry Humphreys, Karen Blair, Lori A. Brotto, Sari van Anders, and Rosemary Basson.
