Becoming Cliterate—Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get It - New Member Book!

Member Laurie Mintz, Ph.D., has published her second book: Becoming Cliterate—Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get It (HarperOne, an imprint of Harper Collins, 2017).  The book is a combination of cultural analysis and prescriptive self-help aimed at closing the orgasm gap and empowering young adult women to orgasm. Steeped in academic theory and psychological science, it’s written in a fun, accessible format for a lay audience.

From the President's Desk - February 2017

As February comes to a close, we are just a few short months away from our Annual Conference, where we will honor our 50 year history as an organization. Rooms are booking up quickly so please reserve space soon!   Many of us feel that our nation remains in challenging times – particularly when news hits that affects the sexual, gender, and reproductive rights that so many in our professional field hold dear and that affect our students and clients. And yet I am proud of the very good work that AASECT and its members continue to do in these and related areas.
