DrNerdLove, a.k.a. Harris O'Malley, is a YouTube web series host that features informational videos about love, sex, and dating for nerds. He also has his own website.

This web series provides examples of:

  • Not Good with Rejection: A reader had written in about not being able to handle rejection in "When Does Rejection Stop Hurting?"
  • Real Men Hate Affection: In "What's Wrong With Men Today?", which is about male loneliness, DrNerdLove comments that the reason men have far fewer close friends than women is that they are taught as they enter into adolescence, by culture and by media, that men showing deep physical affection for one another is a prelude to a desire for sex, and thus culture dictates that it should be avoided unless you want to signal to other men that you're gay.

  • Sex as a Rite-of-Passage: He challenges this thinking in "The Virginity Paradox", saying that losing your virginity doesn't magically change the person you are, that you'll still be the same person you were before it even happened.
  • Virgin-Shaming: Comments about this, particularly about male virginity, in "The Virginity Paradox".
