Personal profile

Biography

Ryan Scoats gained his BA (Hons) and Masters of Research from the University of Bath, and his PhD from the University of Winchester, studying under Professor Eric Anderson. He has previously been a lecturer in Sports Sociology at both Wolverhampton and Winchester Universities, and a researcher at Birmingham City University in the faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences. Much of his work focuses on people’s experiences threesomes and has been featured in a variety of media outlets.

Utilising a sociological perspective, his threesome research aims to fill a gap in academic knowledge around group sex as well as reducing the stigma around this behaviour and encouraging more open and honest dialogues around sexual desires and behaviours.

Some of his other research interests focus on young men's masculinity and adds to a growing body of work suggesting more and more men are rejecting traditional models of masculinity; enabling them to engage with their emotions, demonstrate vulnerability, and reject homophobia.
