• THE JOURNAL OF SEX RESEARCH (JSR)
SSSS’s scholarly journal publishes articles relevant to the variety of disciplines in the scientific study of sexuality. Members receive online access, which provides access to all past issues, starting with Vol.1, Issue 1, in 1965 to the lates issue. JSR printed issues are also available for the current membership year. In total, this is a US$265 value!

• SEXUAL SCIENCE NEWSLETTER
Online newsletter that includes publications, promotions, projects, awards, exciting events, and more! Members are invited to share their important news with the SSSS community.

• SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP (SIG) DISCUSSION FORUMS
Interactive SSSS member e-mail discussion listserv that brings together professionals with similar interests.

• CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE) OPPORTUNITIES
SSSS is approved to provide continuing education credit hours. CE credit hours can be used for approved organizations, state licenses, employer requirements, and other agencies. Check with your state, employer, and/or other agencies for credit acceptance.

• AWARDS
Awards are presented during the SSSS Annual Conference to honor individuals in the sexuality field. SSSS members are invited to nominate colleagues, mentors, even themselves. Members are also eligible to receive specific awards. Each award has its own guidelines, application procedures, and selection criteria.

• MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
This program is open to all SSSS members! For mentors, this is an opportunity to give back! You’ll provide technical knowledge, assistance, encouragement, empathy, and respect to a mentee, which creates a supportive environment that fosters networking as the mentee develops their long-term career goals. As a mentee, you’ll receive your mentor’s support, skills, and wisdom, while pursuing your own career goals, which helps build a professional network, and creates productive working relationships with other sex scientists.

• SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP (SIGs)
SIGs provide an opportunity to network and connect with other members who share your same areas of interest.

• REDUCED RATES
SSSS members enjoy reduced registration fees for SSSS events, such as the Annual Conference, Symposia, and other professional development offerings. Additional journals, published by JSR’s publisher, Routledge-Taylor & Francis, are also offered at a discount.

• COMMITTEE INVOLVEMENT
 A broad range of committees provide an opportunity for SSSS members to be involved with their professional home.




In addition to the above benefits, SSSS student members also receive:

• AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
SSSS has a strong commitment to “the next generation” of sexuality scholars. The Ambassador Program provides an opportunity for students to volunteer during the Annual Conference. In exchange for volunteer hours, Ambassadors have the opportunity to develop relationships with other SSSS members and Conference attendees, engage in networking opportunities, meet with leaders of The Society, and receive a partial refund on their registration fees after the Annual Conference.

• STUDENT GRANTS
Two grants are awarded to SSSS student members every year — one to a graduate student and one to an undergraduate student. The grants have eligibility requirements, specific guidelines, and a review and evaluation process.
