Dr. Meredith Chivers: Changing Sexual Orientation
Dr. Meredith Chivers says that it is not possible for people to change their sexual orientation. What can and should be changed, however, is society’s response to people’s sexual orientation.
Dr. Chivers has appeared on numerous TV shows, published extensively on topics of sexuality, and even shared sex column advice for Savage Love. She is an Assistant Professor at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada and an alum of Northwestern University. Her lab, SageLab, is dedicated to understanding gender differences, and similarities in sexuality, including sexual psychophysiology, sexual orientation, and sexual functioning.
