For the first time, we are attending the AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists) Conference at the Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa, and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference will be held June 15th-18th, and draws a diverse group of over 600 people from all over the world, many of them professionals and experts in their respective fields which include sex education, psychology, sociology, nursing, counseling, and many others.
This will be the 49th Annual AASECT Conference, and they will be celebrating their 50th anniversary with this year’s theme “Honoring Our Past, Celebrating the Present and Envisioning Our Future.” The fields of human sexuality and sexual health have a long history of being considered taboo, and because of that, being under-researched. This year the conference will be recognizing our past and celebrating all of the progress we’ve made, and continue to make, in this area. There will also be an emphasis on the progress the field of human sexuality has come in making its community and research intersectional and how important it is to remember how each individual’s personal experiences, sexual identity, language, culture, and a number of other factors play a role in seeing the complete picture of human sexuality.
The AASECT Conference is one of the largest gatherings dedicated to deepening our understanding of human sexuality and behavior. There are numerous workshops, presentations, and panels that will offer unique perspectives and expert knowledge on a wide range of topics pertaining to sex and sexuality. It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for knowledgeable professionals to share the latest research, clinical techniques, statistics, and technology in this field, as well as engage in dialogues that broaden our understanding of the complexities of human sexuality.
Our contribution to the convention will be our Pacik Dilators. As exhibitors, we will be displaying our dilators and sharing information with attendees about their design, how they work, and how they’ve helped so many people. We’re so excited for this opportunity to share our own knowledge and learn from all of the health professionals that will attend. This will be a great way to introduce these devices to the sexual health community, and we hope we can make more people aware of them and what they can do. We are eager to learn from, and be inspired by, all of the information and ideas that will be exchanged there, which will surely expand our minds and make us even better at what we do!
