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. I enjoy creating Powerpoint slides that are interesting and even fun to look at, and I did that in this presentation. So I am attaching a PDF copy of my transcript along with the slides. It probably goes a little "deep" for some people but it addresses an issue that has hampered the field of sexual health for decades. As I've written before I could honestly retire now and feel that I have created a contribution to the field of sexuality studies that will outlast me and bring benefit from people who have remained outside of existing models of care.
