WASS events are always open to any person who wishes to attend.

 

WASS provides the community, people interested in sexology and health professionals the opportunity to attend regular events on the broad topics within sexology.

 

These events vary greatly from month to month but there are usually two events per month: they could be a presentation and/or seminar, and/or a filmshow. We also assist, develop and co-coordinate or present conferences where WASS members get discounts on registration. IN FACT: as a WASS member you get the presentations, seminars and filmshows free!

Conferences - local and others

 

WASS supports the develoopment of sexuality conferences, or actually conducts sexology conferences. Our most successful, fully booked out, conference was 'New Directions in Sexology' in Fremantle and our next long anticipated conference will be 'Diversity in Sexology' which we hope to conduct in 2016.

 

WASS conducted conferences are always held in WA close to Perth or Fremantle, are always sex positive and diverse, wheelchair accessible and as far as possible conducted in a manner where people can experience excellence in presenations and workshops without the often too high a price for registration and participation - we try to make our conferences financially accessible to people and excellent!!

 

We are involved with other organisations locally, nationally and internationally and advertise their conferences on the WASS Facebook page:
