Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality
Dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about sexuality, the SSSS was founded in 1957 to encourage the rigorous systematic study of sexuality. More than 1,000 individuals hold membership in this non-profit professional membership organization. The strength of the Society is the range of disciplines represented by its members, conference participants, and journal authors. Membership includes anthropologists, biologists, educators, historians, nurses, physicians, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, therapists, and many other disciplines.
With a strong commitment to “the next generation” through the support of a vigorous student membership program, a broad range of committee activity provides numerous opportunities for the involvement of members in the work of the Society. The Society’s award program recognizes professional excellence, public service and service to The Society. Dr. Ava is a current SSSS member.
