Sex Rising: Revolutionary and Emerging Voices in Sexual Science

Phoenix is America's sunniest metropolis and the cosmopolitan heart of Arizona. It's a city that basks in sunshine during 85% of daylight hours and is surrounded on all sides by saguaro-studded mountains. It is known as much for street tacos, spring-training baseball, and casual patio dining as it is for high-desert golf courses, destinations spas and upscale shopping. What sets Phoenix apart from every other big city in the United States is its unique Sonoran Desert scenery. Phoenix has more acreage of parks and preserves than any other major metropolis in the nation, and visitors can explore them via hundreds of miles of trails—or from the basket of a hot-air balloon. Bring your hiking gear and challenge yourself with a hike up Camelback Mountain located just minutes from the downtown area.

The Annual Meeting will be held at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix - an urban hotel located minutes from Sky Harbor International airport in the heart of downtown, just steps away from over 40 restaurants as well as the Arizona Diamondbacks Stadium, Phoenix Suns Arena, local boutiques, theaters, and museums. In the spirit of the Phoenix, in which new life arises from the foundation of the past, the 2016 SSSS Annual Conference “Sex Rising: Revolutionary and Emerging Voices in Sexual Science” celebrates transformative and enduring research from the past, as well as innovative and cutting-edge approaches to sex research.

At the 2016 SSSS Conference we are seeking to be challenged by emerging and innovative research and practice from researchers, educators, and clinicians from a diversity of fields pushing the boundaries of sexual science. Submissions will be considered from all areas of sexuality including anthropology, communication, education, natural sciences, medicine, media/film, psychology, public policy, public health, religion, sociology, and other related disciplines. Of particular interest are submissions from multidisciplinary perspectives on emerging identities, practices, and behaviors.
