Peterson named society fellow

Zoë Peterson has been named a Fellow for the Society of the Scientific Study of Sexuality.

The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, or SSSS, is an organization dedicated to advancing knowledge of sexuality and communicating scientifically based sexuality research and scholarship to professionals, policy makers, and the general public. A member can be named a Fellow based on unusual and outstanding contributions to the scientific study of sex. Fellows must report a large body of scholarly work and demonstrate that their work has had an impact on the work of others.

“I am honored to be named a fellow of SSSS,” Peterson said, adding, “This is especially true because the list of SSSS fellows includes many of the scholars whose work I most admire and who have most influenced me as a researcher, so I am thrilled to be included among them. I am passionate about doing research that helps to promote healthy and consensual sex, so to be recognized for that work in this way feels like icing on the cake.”
