40 Years of Academic Sex - Straight From My Heart (2017 WAS Gold Medalist Lecture)

Dr Lars-Gosta Dahlof

As a psychology and medicine student in the sixties and early seventies I realized that sexology was missing in the education and training curriculum for most health professionals. This concern encouraged me to ask my own department and the University of Gothenburg to modify the current curricula making sexology a compulsory subject in the academic training for physicians and psychologists in the first place.

Pretty soon it became very obvious what a charged issue sexology was in the academic world with an array of prejudices and obstacles, like old-time moralism, to overcome. 40 years and almost 7000 sexology students later, I have the privilege to share with you my personal travelogue filled with decisive experiences, including people, places, institutions, failures and successes, in all a very exciting journey. Hopefully my story will inspire the young congress delegates to explore thoroughly the fascinating field of knowledge called sexual health.
