December 30, 2013 by Justin Lehmiller


For my final post of the year, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the most read articles on The Psychology of Human Sexuality in 2013 to see what you all found to be the most stimulating. Combined, the ten posts that follow have been read nearly a half million times and they represent an incredibly diverse range of content; however, as was the case with last year’s list, it appears that you all especially enjoy learning about the more unusual side of sex.

With that said, I present you with the 10 sexiest stories of 2013.
