Director’s Message

Hello. I am Emily Prior and I am the Executive Director for the Center for Positive Sexuality. It has long been my dream to have a source through which I could promote the positive, healthy aspects of sex and sexuality through open, honest, and accurate education.

If you are interested, you can read a short biography about me on the Board of Directors page.  Also, I encourage you to read the Blog.

Read below for our most recent newsletter. If you wish to receive our monthly newsletter in your email, please subscribe using the form to the right.

Emily Prior, Executive DirectorThank you so much for an incredible 10th Anniversary Party! Our volunteers and Board put on quite the event, including amazing food, funny entertainment, tasty beverages, and an outstanding fundraiser. You can read more about the event below.

Journal of Positive Sexuality also debuted the second issue for this year, including articles on sex dolls, attachment styles and relationships, and social support for Tennessee Black men who have sex with men. JPS is currently accepting and reviewing articles for the last issue of 2017, with a focus on manuscripts that critically analyze sex and porn addiction models.

The fall semester is starting soon and we are expanding to Chicago! If you are teaching class or have an organization that needs training, please contact us to schedule presentations in your area. We are of course taking requests for Southern California as well. Cities outside of our range can still be serviced through Skype and live YouTube streaming. We are pleased to announce two new presentations – The 4C’s: A Guide to Consensual Negotiation and What is Positive Sexuality? Please use this form to request a presentation.

In the next few months, our researchers are off to Cambridge, Sacramento, and various other cities to present their work. With help from our supporters, our research team now has more funding for conferences and travel. This helps us reach out to more people and organizations across the globe.

SexPosCon18 is coming in May! We are taking presentation proposals August 1- October 31. If you have something innovative and diverse on the positive sexuality topic of Strengths, Well-being, and Happiness, please send in your proposal. We are also looking for conference sponsors and supporters. Early registration for the conference will begin November 1.
