Hani Miletski

Hani Miletski (1962 - ) is a sexologist, and sex therapist living in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. She specializes as a trainer and supervisor in the field, addiction, and also works within the criminal justice system.

Miletski published the first brief overview of mother-son incest research. She shed light on a topic that has suffered societal neglect because of the taboo nature of incest, the widespread denial of all forms of female sexual aggression, and social double standards that impede recognition of female sex crimes. She shows that mother-son incest is more common than is thought and that most mothers who commit incest are sane.

Miletski is notable for her "monumental" and "pioneering"1999 book on zoosexuality, a comprehensive reference work and analysis combined with further research, which formally established whether a genuine orientation might exist (as opposed to a mere sexual fetish), and whether previous research in the field had erred in not fully recognizing this. Prior to her studies, the field was highly fragmented and reliable information for psychological purposes unclear. Her findings, published under peer review in the Scandinavian Journal of Sexology were later supported by several others in the field. Miletski was born in Israel, and according to her website, moved to the United States as part of the Israeli embassy staff as Assistant Senior Representative of the Defense Mission to the U.S. for Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) Programs. She studied at The Catholic University of America and gained her doctorate at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality California and worked within the Fogel Foundation from 1994 until 2003 before leaving to focus on her own private practice.
