Pepper Schwartz

Pepper Schwartz, PhD, is an American sociologist and sexologist teaching at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, United States. She is the author or co-author of numerous books, magazines,Web site columns, and a television personality on the subject of sexuality.

Schwartz is notable for her work in the 1970s and early 1980s that culminated in the book, with Philip Blumstein, "American Couples: Money-Work-Sex" which surveyed lesbian couples, gay male couples and heterosexual couples.


Dr. Pepper Schwartz earned a PhD in Sociology from Yale University in 1974. While a graduate student there, she co-authored with Janet Lever the 1971 book "Women at Yale", documenting the first year of co-education at that university.

Schwartz is a prolific writer and authority on the subject of sexuality and relationships. She wrote the column "Sex and Health" for "Glamour" magazine for seven years. She has appeared on such television programs as "The Oprah Winfrey Show", "Dateline" and "Dr. Phil", and on programs for the cable television network Lifetime. She was the 2005 president of the Pacific Sociological Association, helped create the dating Web site PerfectMatch.com, and is a sexuality adviser for WebMD.com.

Schwartz is a past president of the Society for the Study of Sexuality and a charter member of the International Academy of Sex Research. The book jacket for her 2007 publication "Prime: Adventures and Advice on Sex, Love, and the Sensual Years" described her living "in Washington State, being single after a 23 year marriage, and having two children in college". As of 2007, she is a tenured professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington


Research by Schwartz and others surveying lesbian sexuality has generated debates because the surveys stated that lesbian couples in long term relationships have less sex than their heterosexual or gay male counterparts. The phenomenon was labelled "Lesbian bed death". One factor in this debate is the problem of defining acts of "sex" in surveys.
