About WASS


The Western Australian Sexology Society was formed in 1986 and Incorporated as a not for profit organisation in Western Australia in 1987.


The Western Australian Sexology Society Inc (WASS) is an organisation dedicated to the study, understanding, education, enhancement and community acceptance in the diversity of human sexuality.


WASS is based in Perth, Australia and has been operating within its current structure since 1986, though there has been a sexology organisation in Perth since 1979.


WASS is affiliated with the Australian Institute of Sexology Inc, the World Association of Sexual Health, as well as other International sexology organisations and other relevant organisations.


Sexology simply means the study, understanding and education of sexuality.


At this site you will find information on the Society, seminars and events to be conducted, membership information, some information on research conducted within sexology and links to many other similar sites.
