ABSTRACT
In a series of path-breaking decisions, the Board of Directors of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) has decided that the organization, with the help of the Public Relations and Media Committee, should develop its own set of sexual health advocacy positions, from which the AASECT can become an increasingly powerful voice in the battle for ethical and scientific sexual health values and policies in the public arena. The "Vision of Sexual Health" presents eight statements of value and vision: sexual health and sexual freedom; sexual variability and rights; sexual health of minors; sexual rights of individuals with special challenges and needs; reproductive rights; access to erotic materials; comprehensive sexuality education; and sexuality healing and the rights of patients and clients.
