Carnes Award Keynote Address Transcript and Slides

On October 16 2020 I had the high honor of presenting the 2020 Carnes Award Keynote Address at the annual conference of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH). The title of this presentation was "A Framework for Categorizing Problematic Sexual Behavior", and it reviewed a way that I created for evaluating sexual behavior patterns for their problematic aspects. Several others pages on this site include summaries of this framework. I had a lot of fun preparing for this address and then delivering it, and I'm grateful that it was well received.
