Psychiatrists compare views on ethics of the bedroom

Hold onto your bench — sex is the topic of Tuesday’s 10:45 a.m. lecture.

“It’s hard to be boring about this subject. You’d have to really try to be boring,”
Dr. Paul McHugh said of his morning lecture in the Amphitheater with Dr. Julia Heiman.

Heiman and McHugh will discuss the ethics of cheating in sexual relationships, and whether cheating on a partner deserves its widely accepted negative reputation.

McHugh, University Distinguished Service Professor of psychiatry at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, previously served as director of the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences. He also served on President George W. Bush’s council on bioethics.

Heiman serves as director of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction at Indiana State University, and her work focuses on understanding patterns of sexuality from an integrated psychosocial-biomedical perspective. She is broadly published in the area of sex research on male and female sexual function and dysfunction.
