Newsletter: Third Quarter 2019

It has been another busy quarter, I know I say that every quarter. Time does fly when you are having fun.   So this is what we have been doing.

American College of Sexual Medicine and Health
The formation of the American College of Sexual Medicine and Health (ACSMH) is progressing.  ACSMH is a project of the DSREI and will be offering sexual medicine education and training courses for healthcare professionals.  ACSMH will be collaborating with our sister/brother/sibling organization, The Alternative Sexualities Health Research Alliance (TASHRA), to make this happen.

ACSMH is dedicated to raising the awareness of sexual medicine and health as an essential component of all healthcare. We plan on creating a series of courses leading to certificates in Sexual Health.  We emphasize that we will not be certifying people, only courses, programs, and attendance at these courses.

A draft of the new ACSMH logo is below, this is not the final version, so please send us feedback.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kinky Guidelines Group
DSREI continues to work with the Kinky Guidelines group, we are presenting to major psychotherapy and sexology groups, and soon will be submitting the paper to an academic journal.   This is an important groundbreaking project.

Diverse Sexualities Month
December is Diverse Sexualities Month, how are you planning to celebrate?  Please let us know, prizes for the best ideas can be awarded.  December is also the end of our fiscal year.  I hope you will consider donating to DSREI.  We have done quite well on our limited budget but there is lots more we want to do.  In case anyone is concerned, the donations only pay for DSREI’s expenses.  Everyone associated with DSREI is a volunteer.  If anyone knows of a real fundraiser (professional or not) who wants to help, I will personally arrange for the heavens to open and the angels to sing your praises.

Turkey Conference
DSREI is sponsoring the 2nd International Anatolian Congress on Neuroscience and Sexual Health in Istanbul Turkey, November 16th and 17th, 2019.  It is a long way to go, especially with Turkey’s incursion into Syria occurring as I write this.  Everyone, well most everyone, is assuring me that it is safe.  It will be a cutting edge conference and there is such a great hunger for information about sex and diverse sexualities.  The conference will be in English and interpreters will be available

Going back into Private Practice
I am settling in to my new office and everything and everyone has been welcoming and great.  There have been a few bumps in the road, not unexpected, but I am excited about this new chapter in my professional career.

They said it could not be done, but I am going back to paper charts.  I am just using the computer for online prescriptions and research.  Most physicians hate their EHR, but are afraid to give it up.  Wish me luck.

Hopefully, next quarter’s email will be on time. I know I say that every quarter.  If someone wants to be the Newsletter editor, I will happily (and quickly) move aside.

Newsletter: Second Quarter 2019

It has been another busy quarter.

DSREI was a platinum sponsor of the Multiplicity of the Erotic (MOTE) conference in Chicago, which was a great conference.  The focus was on Diverse Sexualities both academic and clinical issues.  The next one will be in two years and we recommend you try to attend.  In the off years there is Positive Sexuality Conference put on by Center of Positive Sexuality.  MOTE is sponsored by our sister organizations, CARAS and TASHRA.  You can sign up for the MOTE listserv by sending an email to MOTE+subscribe@groups.io

DSREI is also sponsoring the 2nd International Anatolian Congress on Neuroscience and Sexual Health in Istanbul Turkey, November 16th and 17th2019.  It is a long way to go, but it is really a cutting edge conference and there is such a great hunger for information about sex and diverse sexualities.  The conference will be in English and interpreters will be available.

DSREI is proud to sponsor the formation of the American College of Sexual Medicine and Health (ACSMH) and that Landi Craunston, MD is its new executive director.   ACSMH is dedicated to raising the awareness of sexual medicine and health as an essential component of all healthcare. Supporting, educating and training health professionals and sexual medicine specialists.  Of course ACSMH will have a special emphasis on Diverse Sexualities and Genders.  More information will be forthcoming soon.

DSREI continues to work with Kinky Guidelines group, we are presenting to major psychotherapy and sexology groups, and soon will be submitting the paper to an academic journal.   This is an important groundbreaking project.

I am also proud to announce that Caitlin Stouvenot is our new Social Media Princess (we chose that title together).  DSREI desperately needs a social media presence and we are lucky to have Caitlin.

On a personal note, after 25 years I am moving my office across town.  I have an opportunity to help create the St. Francis Memorial Hospital Gender Affirmation Surgery Center of Excellence.   I will be leaving the Sutter West Bay Medical group and moving back into private practice, specializing in Sexual Medicine, if interested check out my website.  My new contact information is:

Here is a link to a brand new article in the NY Times Magazine, about non-binary people – a great in-depth read:

And here is a link to a blog posting about managing kink discrepancies within relationships, an important topic that gets little research and training:

Hopefully, next quarter’s email will be on time.
