Archives of Sexual Behavior

The Archives of Sexual Behavior is the publication of International Academy of Sex Research (IASR), a trade group whose objectives are “the promotion of high standards of research and scholarship in the field of sexual behavior by fostering communication and cooperation among scholars engaged in such research.”

ASB was founded by Richard Green in 1971. Green is author of The Sissy Boy Syndrome and controlled access to health services at the Gender Identity Clinic at Charing Cross Hospital.

Kenneth J. Zucker took over the journal in 2001. He uses it as a bully pulpit to promote theories and practices emanating from the CAMH Clarke Institute. The Editorial board is packed with cronies from the Clarke Institute, and sexologists critical of Zucker and friend do so anonymously out of fear of retribution that could damage their careers.

Zucker runs ASB the way his colleague J. Michael Bailey runs the SEXNET discussion group for sexologists: as a way to shore up support for his point of view and a way to eliminate critical viewpoints.
