The theme of the sixth annual SPSP Sexuality Preconference is “Sexual Pleasure and Positivity.” A diverse group of scholars will present their latest research through the lens of pleasure and positivity, while also exploring the associations between sexual pleasure, social structural systems, and personal well-being. 

This year’s pre-conference will feature three keynote talks, as well as a one-hour symposium in which three scholars will present a set of shorter talks on several important and understudied sexuality issues.

There will also be a data blitz, in which 10-12 attendees will describe their latest findings in brief. Also, new this year, we will be having a sexuality poster session. See submission details below!
