The inaugural meeting of the Association of Teachers of Sexuality within Medical Education was held in London on 2 July 1993. The list of participants reflected the fact that teaching about sexuality does not fit neatly into any subject area, and although some departments of psychiatry see this as their responsibility, others seem happy to leave it to colleagues in reproductive medicine. So as well as psychiatrists and psychologists, we included gynaecologists, specialists in family planning and general practitioners with psychosexual training. We represented a wide geographical area with participants attending from as far apart as Aberdeen and Southampton. What we had in common was some responsibility for teaching about human sexuality, and a belief in the importance of this topic in medical education.
