Silencing Sexual Science

Silencing Sexual Science October 25, 2019

I have spoken on these issues for over a decade now because I see how the misinformation harms members of communities such as mine within Mormonism. Accurate knowledge is the strongest tool we have to help us on any given topic. Fear and misinformation continue pain and suffering.

“Silencing sexual science that refutes established notions of sexual disease and disorders has a long and sordid history. I find solace in reminding myself that the current story of sex and porn addiction advocates attempts to dismiss, disparage and silence sexual science is yet another incarnation of past attempts to lock up men’s penises to prevent masturbation, eradicate same sex attracted desires, and criminalize many forms of consensual erotic diversity.”               -Doug Braun-Harvey
