What values are underlying the actions of scientific societies of sexologists in sexology and sexual health?

Declaration of sexual rights (WAS 2014)
The rights to freedom of association and peaceful assembly: The right to participation in public and political life. Everyone has the right to peacefully organise, associate, assemble, demonstrate, and advocate including about sexuality, sexual health, and sexual rights. What values exist behind these actions? Société Française de Sexologie Clinique (SFSC) promotes training, reflection and sharing of knowledge. The ethical values of SFSC are impartiality and neutrality of sex therapists. This requires them to confront the sexual problems of their patients. The reactions of sex therapists against transference must be minimized. It is important, for personal reasons that embracing this discipline appears to them clearly, without equivocation or ambiguity. Sex therapists also need to know their own limits.

Issues for discussions

  • What is the role of the scientific society of sexologists in the field of sexology and sexual health?
  • Is there a common sexual morality that could be the basis for various scientific societies?
  • A scientific society: is it legitimate to express the position of its members on political issues?

A controlled study of depression and suicidal ideation among homosexual students in Nigeria

Introduction and objectives: Homosexuality has been considered a mental health disorder and this pathological view was challenged four decades ago culminating in diagnostic systems (the ICD and DSM) regarding it as an alternative lifestyle rather than a pathological state. Homosexual individuals are prone to psychological distress, which may manifest as depression and suicidal ideation. This has been attributed to the lingering discrimination homosexual individuals are exposed to. There is a dearth of information in Nigeria with regards to this topic and this work is an attempt to fill this gap. The objectives of this study were to determine and compare the prevalence of depression and suicidal ideation in homosexual students and heterosexual controls in a Nigerian university.

Engaging, practical and empowering: Sexuality and relationships education at Curtin University, Australia that supports pre-service teachers

An audit of Western Australian universities found pre-service teachers have limited opportunity to study health-related courses (termed units in Australia), and when they are offered there is often little focus on Sexuality and Relationships Education (SRE). Curtin University has recently established an undergraduate course for Bachelor of Education students, which focuses solely on the delivery of evidence-based SRE. 

We know more than what you think: Parents' understanding, through their children’s drawing, the importance of sexual education

Mandatory sexual education in Mexican elementary schools still faces parents’ opposition under the arguments that their children are not old enough to be exposed to the subject. Through their own children’s drawings, this research proved to parents that their children had already been exposed to great extent of sexual information that needs scientific and correct guidance. The main objective of this exploratory study was to assess, through children’s drawings, their views about pregnancy at an early age and use the results to promote, among the parents, the acceptance of sexual education programs at the schools.
