The Society for Sex Therapy and Research (SSTAR) just celebrated their 40th anniversary at their annual meeting in Boston. In their 40th year as an organization, they celebrate a commitment to excellence in the field of human sexuality. SSTAR has presented and supported research, clinical work, education and training and is committed to the principle that all people have a right to healthy sexuality and a right to sex therapy treatment. SSTAR facilitates access to scientific discovery in sexual health.
This year’s annual meeting included an exciting array of topics for discussion and debate and ground- breaking research was presented. Dr. Meg Barker, a founding member of BiUK was one of several speakers. Barker and BiUK produced The Bisexuality Report and guidelines for researchers and writers on bisexuality. They also organized the national BiReCon event in 2008 and the international BiReCon Conference in 2010.
