Sam Hughes

Sam studies the psychology of people who fall outside of typical sexual norms, including people who participate in BDSM, kink, and sexual fetishism, as well as LGBTQ people. In particular, he investigates the origins of sexual desires, and the relationship between stigma, discrimination, and mental health. He explores how building relationships and skills in sexual minority communities can help to protect and improve people’s mental health and well-being.

Similarly, he is interested in how policies put in place by institutions like prisons, schools and psychiatric medicine can mistakenly treat human sexual diversity as a sickness. He showcases how positive changes can be made to reduce stigma and discrimination around sexual minority identities. Overall, his research aims to improve the well-being of sexual minorities. He seeks to do this by providing policymakers, clinicians, sex educators, and advocates with research that describes the challenges and barriers, as well as sources of support and resilience in the lives of kinky and LGBTQ people.
