The 26th meeting of this group of sex researchers was held in Paris, France, June 21-24, 2000. Membership of the society is limited to those who have proven scholarship in sexology, from a wide range of disciplines (for example: zoology, physiology, anatomy, molecular biology, endocrinology, psychiatry, psychology, sociology, and anthropology). The admixture of social and biologic scientists creates a special tension to the underlying theme of "nature vs nurture" in explaining sexual behavior. The multidisciplinary nature of the society is evident in the very different presentations and ensuing debate. Unfortunately, there was not enough attempt by researchers to present truly integrated work from an interdisciplinary perspective.
