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.

Emily Prior, Executive Director

Just like everyone else, Center for Positive Sexuality is experiencing changes as we move into the new year. We are fortunate that those changes seem to be very, well, positive.

This year marks our 10th Anniversary. We have provided sex-positive education and research for a decade now, and we have no intention of stopping. In fact, our education and research programs continue to expand. We will hold a special 10th Anniversary event later this year in Los Angeles. If you want to be on the invite list, just let me know.

I also want to thank all of our supporters and contributors we’ve had over the years, especially those that have been with us from the beginning: Dr. James Elias and Dr. Veronica Elias, Kathryn vanRoosendaal Matthew, Robert Moore, and Ms. Diana. I want to also acknowledge some of early educators and supporters who are no longer with us, but guide us in spirit, “Daddy” Bo Mulder and George Wong.

And where would we be without all of current supporters and contributors?!? Please take a moment to check our Donor Recognition page and see the wonderful people who help us do what we do.

Our winter fundraiser is here! Tired of the cold and snow? Prepare for spring buy purchasing seeds and bulbs for lovely spring and summer gardens. Encourage all of those colorful butterflies and feed those hungry bees. Opens February 5.

Also, Journal of Positive Sexuality moves into its 3rd year, with the next volume and issue coming later in February or March.

We would like to thank the fabulous Eli Sheff for joining our ranks as a Research Affiliate. You may know some of her popular books: Stories from the Polycule, The Polyamorists Next Door, When Someone You Love is Polyamorous, and many others. Our research team is already working with Dr. Sheff on some new projects.

In case that isn’t enough to be happy about, our education program is expanding to Chicago! We will conduct an educator training in May in the downtown Chicago area. If you are interested in becoming one of our Chicago locals, please fill out a volunteer application now.

I am eternally grateful to all of our amazing volunteers and supporters. Let’s celebrate this decade of positive sexuality and prepare for another ten years of greatness!

Happy New Year!
