Abstract: Established in 1957, the Society for the Scientific Study of Sex was formed in response to the growing demand amongst American sex researchers for a national organization capable of uniting individuals professionally engaged in sex research. The SSSS has since grown to provide sex researchers from all over the world with a forum for discussing issues related to sex research including annual conferences, a newsletter, and the Journal of Sex Research. The Society for the Scientific Study of Sex (SSSS) Collection contains materials relevant to the incorporation of SSSS, its constitution, conference proceedings, meeting minutes, financial records, membership lists, and publications in addition to a large collection of conference-related audio/visual materials.
