Third Blogiversary of Sex and Psychology
December 18, 2014 by Justin Lehmiller
Sex and Psychology is officially three years old! When I first started this blog, I never dreamed that it would reach this level of popularity. I guess I did not realize how much demand there was for research-backed information about sex; however, this is one case where I am glad I was wrong!
