The Year in Sex: The 10 Most-Read Articles on Sex and Psychology in 2018

December 28, 2018 by Justin Lehmiller

As 2018 winds down, let’s take a look back at this year’s ten most read articles on Sex and Psychology. The following posts represent an incredibly diverse range of content and, combined, have been read hundreds of thousands of times! There were quite a few similarities to last year’s list–in fact, the top five articles this year were all on the list somewhere last year. Also, as you’ll see, articles related to orgasms, anal sex, and what’s “normal” were especially popular this year, as were articles that addressed questions submitted by readers of the blog (in fact, seven of the top ten articles were Q&As!).

Here’s the countdown of Sex and Psychology’s ten most-read articles in 2018:

10. Sex Question Friday: How Does Female-To-Male Sex Reassignment Surgery Work?

9. Sex Question Friday: How Often Do Married Couples Have Sex?

8. What Do Sadists and Masochists Actually Do In Bed?

6. Does Penis Size Actually Affect Female Sexual Pleasure?

5. Sex Question Friday: I Want To Watch My Wife Sleep With Someone Else. Is That Normal? (This was the #7 entry on the list last year. It has also made the top 10 for five years running and is currently the 4th most-read article to date on the entire site. Cuckolding is pretty popular!)
