Reminder: Talking About Sex On 'Jeopardy!' Will Always Be Awkward

Always.

"Jeopardy!" covers an endless variety of topics and, of course, sex is occasionally one of them. And occasionally, contestants bring it up themselves. 

During a Q&A with Alex Trebek on Wednesday's episode, contestant Liz Miles used her moment in the spotlight to talk about her dissertation. The doctoral candidate in anthropology ended up delving into the sex lives of Japanese men, which spurred a slightly awkward reaction from the show's host. 

"I think there's a lot of claims going around that Japanese men don't have sex and, um, am I allowed to say that?" Miles said, laughing, before Trebek assured her she could continue. "I mean I wasn't doing that kind of research, but I found, you know, it depends on how we define sex." 

Trebek played it pretty cool, vaguely answering, "Okay it always, it always comes around to that, doesn't it." 

Nailed it, Alex.

Though Miles found herself the subject of a few articles on the internet for her intro, she was nowhere near as buzz-worthy as, well, recent "Jeopardy!" player Buzzy Cohen.

One of the show's most controversial contestants yet, Cohen's penchant for trolling Trebek and wearing hipster glasses made you either really love Buzzy or REALLY, really hate him.
