Whether it was a business trip one-night stand or a "bisexual bonobo" birthday party , Zhana Vrangalova wants to know all about your latest hookup. The sex researcher and NYU instructor is behind The Casual Sex Project , a recently-launched website that asks people to anonymously submit their hookup stories. Vrangalova hopes that sharing these stories will help to demystify casual sexual encounters.
