Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality
The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS, or "quad-S") is, according its website, a professional membership organization, "dedicated to advancing knowledge of sexuality and communicating scientifically based sexuality research and scholarship to professionals, policy makers, and the general public." It reports to have more than 700 members, including anthropologists, biologists, educators, historians, nurses, physicians, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, therapists, and others. It produces a quarterly, online newsletter, Sexual Science. and the Journal of Sex Research, a scholarly journal published quarterly.
A prominent sex researcher, James Cantor, resigned in protest from SSSS following a heated exchange on the group’s listserv about gender dysphoria. Cantor linked to an essay, “When is a TERF not a TERF,” saying extremists were being unfair to those questioning parts of transgender activist claims. Cantor was suspended from the listserv, to which Cantor responded "It is unfortunate to have lost SSSS as a genuinely scientific organization, but there is little point in the collective pretense that it hadn’t already happened a while ago."
