The Sexuality and Spirituality Research Network (S&SRN) is a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to the production and diffusion of interdisciplinary research on sexuality and spirituality. We focus on adult sex education, alternative sexualities, arts of living, erotic arts, and non-religious spirituality.
Our network provides an online location for researchers inquiring about the interrelations between sexuality and spirituality to engage with each other and work together in multi, inter, and transdisciplinary activities. We bring together scholars, professionals, practitioners, and communities all over the globe exploring alternative approaches to sex, gender awareness, relationships, and subjectivity.
We develop our own interdisciplinary research projects and academic publications. But we also diffuse our research outcomes beyond academic circles: we produce social media contents—posts, videos, podcasts, infographics—, conferences, and virtual events. Furthermore, we convert interdisciplinary research outcomes into programs, curriculums, guidelines, manuals, or activities, and design strategies to diffuse and share the information among people around the world. The intent here is to help to bridge the gap between the academy and everyday life.
Our mission is to generate knowledge about sex and sexuality that could be helpful for individuals and communities trying to improve their erotic skills and trying to enhance their sex lives. Understanding and experiencing sexuality as a central dimension of human flourishing and as a fundamental ground for the embodiment of ethical principles, we discuss models and create tools to prevent sexual abuse, sex addiction, sexual indifference, and sexual dissatisfaction; we offer adult sex education, sex life cultivation, gender empowerment, and arts of living programs; we diffuse selflessness alongside critical consciousness and promote alternative ways of life.
