Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality

The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, formed in 1957, claims to be "the oldest organization of professionals interested in the study of sexuality in the United States." It claims to have some 900 members and has a quarterly newsletter, Sexual Science. It produces two other publications:


In 1980, organizer Robert Francoeur invited Philadelphia biologist Timothy Perper to join the society. Perper had recently finished charting the mating behavior of five-hundred couples in bars in the U.S. and Canada. That year he presented the early results of his findings to the society. His book, detailing findings, is called Sex Signals - the Biology of Love and was published in 1985.
