Research like this is an excellent example of what happens when the "objectivity" imperative of science becomes artificially detached from the culture within which science is conducted.  I can see no earthly benefit to this line of inquiry when there are urgent problems with antibiotic resistant bacteria, starvation, and disease throughout the world that remain to be solved.

This is nothing but prurient sensationalism for Science by press release.

I disagree with MFHeil. Human sexuality, in all its forms, is of great interest  - why not an MRI of intercourse?!?
