LOS ANGELES — Chauntelle Tibbals, Ph.D., is the featured guest on the most recent episode of “Innovation Crush,” a PodcastOne show available online and through iTunes.
In the episode, the sociologist and author talks with show hosts Chris Denson and Robert Dones Jr. about research on sexual taboos and the adult entertainment industry.
“I had such a great time on Innovation Crush,” says Dr. Chauntelle. “We covered so many issues currently impacting both porn and wider society, from increased government regulation to online piracy. We really got into the ‘where’ and ‘how’ porn impacts our culture, and vice versa. And as in-depth as the conversation got, we also got in some good jokes too – it was a really fun, funny, and rigorous talk.”
“As human beings, we are hard-wired for preservation and re-creation, constantly stimulated by sexual imagery,” the show description says. “Given our ‘sex cells,’ it's no wonder that fans of the adult industry consume by the millions, allowing porn to set many precedents in everything from marketing to technology to law. At the same time, not only is the topic of sex a cultural taboo, the industry itself faces a ton of challenges.”
Innovation Crush continues, “Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals’ socio-psychological expertise on sexual behavior and the adult industry is highly sought-after both by educational institutions and the porn industry itself. On IC, the doctor and author breaks down our quiet cultural obsession, addressing equality in the business, missed perceptions, epic fandemonium, psychology of performers, and more.”
