Cristopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha Win Prestigious Award

See the following letter:

Dear Christopher,

As the President of The Foundation for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, I am pleased to confirm that you and Cacilda Jetha are the recipients of the Harriet and Ira Reis Theory Award in Sexology for 2011.
Your book, “Sex at Dawn” was selected by the Review Committee for this Award particularly for its integration of social and sexual behavior into evolutionary theory. It is believed that the resulting socially-based
view of the development of human sexual behavior adds significantly to the understanding and appreciation of the role and impact of social factors in the long-term evolution of sexual behavior.

As the recipient of this Award, we would like to invite you or Dr. Jetha to present the Reis Plenary Address at the Annual Meeting of The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality being held in Tampa, Florida (USA),
November 8-11, 2012. Your address would be scheduled on either Friday, Nov. 9th or Saturday, Nov. 10th. As the Reis Theory Awardee, you would receive a plaque, a $500 check, and an additional $500 to cover
your travel expenses. The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality will also cover the cost of one night’s stay at the conference hotel and offers free registration to you for the conference.

Once again, I offer my congratulations to you and look forward to meeting you at the SSSS conference next year.

With Best Regards,

Patricia Barthalow Koch, Ph.D.
Professor of Biobehavioral Health, The Pennsylvania State University
Adjunct Professor of Human Sexuality, Widener University
President of The Foundation for the Scientific Study of Sexuality

Congratulations Chris and Cacilda!
