Writers Wanted for Pro-Sex Connections

If you have something to say—from your own personal or professional experiences or things you’ve seen in the media—about how sexuality is being portrayed as unnecessarily and/or irrationally negative and destructive—or how sexuality is being more positively and unexpectedly viewed—contact Dr. Ray Noonan by e-mail at SexQuest/The Sex Institute. Other subjects might include thoughtful insights into how you or someone you know are coping with antisexualism—and making their sexuality a healthy and positive part of their lives.
