At the Heart of Our Mission: Share, Inform, and Mobilize

Most articles are currently only available in French.
The "articles" section offers exclusive texts on sexological issues. For the production of content, Les 3 sex* relies on external collaborations. Before publication, all publications are evaluated and revised by our reading committee. Opinions expressed in the publications, however, are not an expression of the organization’s position, and only represent the points of view of the authors. Please note it is a possibility that some texts published do not represent all the gender identities of our magazine’s readership. To submit an article or a story, click here.
