Update from Alaska!


It is an active time in Alaska this spring.

Colorado Section Update


Neil Cannon reports that the Colorado Holiday Party in December, held on December 5, 2016, was a great success. This party always features a "naughty cake" -- that is, an actual cake with a sexually suggestive "naughty" decoration or design with the icing on the top. He did not send me a picture of this year's cake, like he did last year, but I bet if you emailed him, he would send you a pic. Or maybe not...evidently, the cakes are so "naughty" that he may not be able to send such photos through email! :)

Eastern Region Update - Another Successful Meet and Greet in the Northeast!


We held another successful Meet and Greet on January 10, our first of the year in the Northeast. Featured guest this time was our very beloved Jassy Timberlake, who gave a really insightful presentation on the intersectionality of creating a trans* positive sex therapy practice in keeping with a social justice framework. We had a wonderful crowd, great discussion, 1 AASECT CE for each participant, and a hearty, locally-sourced lunch.

From the President's Desk - December 2016


Dear AASECT Family:   As we approach 2017, AASECT marks its 50th year as an organization. Some of you have been with AASECT since its earliest days and I cannot thank you enough for setting a foundation upon which we all keep contributing. We have a great deal to celebrate (and we certainly will do so at our summer 2017 annual conference) and we also still have significant work to do.
