They were particularly fertile in the 70th and 80th decades of XXth century, with the foundation of World Association for Sexual Health / WAS in Rome 1978 and the “Federación Latinoamericana de Socie- dades de Sexologia y Educación Sexual” (FLASSES) in Montevideo 1980. It has been published from 1982 until today, 15 Latin-Americans catalogues of sexological publications, that evidence the identity and fecundity of Latin-Americans clinical sexologists; we must highlight the Master in Medical Sexology of University of Venezuela 1985 and the formation of the Service of Clinical Sexology in the post grade of Psychology of “Universidad Católica del Uruguay” from 1985 until 2006. In Latin-America, functioned 10 Capacitating Centres of Clinical Sexology in 1993 and 14 in 1999, all registered by WAS.

The FLASSES accreditation of the 30 first clinical sexologists of Latin America in Belo Horizonte in 1992 was a hit, same as the approbation in 1998 of the Accreditations Rules of FLASSES for specialist in clinical sexology. The “Revista Uruguaya de Sexología” began in 1979, the “Revista Latinoamericana de Sexología” in 1986, the “Revista Argentina de Sexologia SASH” in 1986, the “Archivos Hispanoameri- canos de Sexología” in México in 1994, the Magazine “Sexología” of Venezuela in 1996 and the magazine “Terapia Sexual” in Sao Paulo from 1998, until now. All the Societies and FLASSES own an information mail, on line. Finally, the International Academy of Medical Sexology founded in 2003 for Latin-Americans and Europeans of Iberian Peninsula, and extended to the rest of the World, have enhanced the field of Clinical Sexology of the region. This effort, must be extended trough other investigations and records.
