This Week on MSP: Breasts, Sex in America, and More

In acknowledgement of Breast Cancer Awareness Month here in the US, we’ll be considering the issue of breasts and sexuality this week on MSP in addition to a whole host of non-breast related articles. This

is our second theme week (in September, we took a look at the intersection of sex and fashion) and we hope that you will enjoy the MSP gaze, so to speak, at breasts.

Too, today marks the day that the research team I’m a part of at Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health Promotion, releases findings from a large study we conducted about sex in the United States among women and men ages 14 to 94. I’ll be linking to coverage of our study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, as it comes in. For starters, you can check out these pieces in the NY Times, NPR, USA Today, the Washington Post, and MedPage today.

So, there’s much to look forward to this week. Hope to see you in the comments section.
