About Us

We are dedicated to enhancing the sexual health, knowledge and well being of people in mid and later life by providing quality sexuality education to individuals, couples and to professionals who serve them.

As an educational outreach initiative of the Widener University's Center for Human Sexuality Studies, we are affiliated with a highly respected academic program equally committed to healthy lifespan sexuality and professional practice.

Consortium members are professionals whose work addresses diverse aspects of sexuality. We recognize sexuality to be a life-long issue that affects everything about an individual from self-perceived sex and gender to the management of sexual health and attractions of the heart.
