Raymond J. Noonan, Ph.D.: “Sexuality’s Advocate”
Author, Professor, and Producer of

Raymond J. Noonan, Ph.D., is the founder and producer/director of SexQuest/The Sex Institute, the first national organization to focus on and promote the inherently healthy and positive nature of human sexuality. Called “sexuality’s advocate,” Dr. Noonan, an internationally recognized sexologist, was one of the first persons to publicly address the scarcity of positive attitudes toward human sexuality in the age of AIDS. To advance his ideas, he founded the Pro-Sex Forum in 1986 to confront sex negativity and AIDS hysteria at a national level and to advance his alternative “Sane Sex” messages of sanity and hope in these beleaguered times. Dr. Noonan has served as Assistant Program Management Officer and Public Health Educator, Special Projects, for the Division of AIDS Program Services, New York City Department of Health, and has worked with Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and other sexual health organizations. Working in the field of sexology for over 35 years, he was one of the first sexologists to provide sexual health information on the Internet and World Wide Web, and continues to develop innovative approaches to sexuality issues. Dr. Noonan currently teaches human sexuality, health education, and stress management at the Fashion Institute of Technology of the State University of New York (FIT-SUNY) in Manhattan, where he formerly chaired the Health and Physical Education Department. He is also Website Editor of CCIES at the Kinsey Institute, the online version of The Continuum Complete International Encyclopedia of Sexuality, and moderates cutting-edge discussions on The SexQuest Blog: International Trends, Chaotic Systems, and Alternative Futures in Sexuality. Below are some highlights of his recent and past writings and presentations.
