“For much of our history, we’ve played defense: battling regressive legislation, dissecting bad studies, fighting regulatory fines and inspections after they’ve happened and reacting to negative media stories.
This isn’t an effective way to run an organization, let alone an industry, because our resources are spent protecting territory rather than expanding it.
Instead, I want to look to a future where we set the terms of the debate. Where we’re considered a thought leader in issues of sex, sexuality and sexual wellness.
Where we produce studies that fight bias with facts, and stigma with science.
I want a future where we’re not only consulted on legislation and regulation, but we inspire and lead it.”
