As the Science Correspondent here on HuffPost Science, I am sometimes offered the opportunity to appear on radio, television, and internet shows to talk about different scientific topics. I recently filmed an episode of The Point, presented by The Young Turks' new YouTube channel, Town Square.

Sandra Daugherty (aka: podcaster Sex Nerd Sandra), famed adult film actress and director Nina Hartley, and I rounded out the panel, hosted by Christopher Ryan (author of Sex at Dawn). Topics discussed include monogamy, hypersexuality as a mental disorder, and the politicization of female contraception.

Watch more episodes of The Point on the Town Square YouTube Channel.
Listen to Sex Nerd Sandra's podcast, presented by the Nerdist.
Take a look at Nina Hartley's book, Nina Hartley's Guide to Total Sex.
Purchase a copy of Christopher Ryan's book, Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships.
