What is This?
This is a page where I put a lot of content that I give away for free. Of course this entire site is free to use. On this particular portion of the site, I provide a full-length book on how to educate college students and military members about sexual assault. I also have several fact sheets that summarize recent research on topics like the harms of pornography and sexual violence. I just want to know who is using the book and other materials on this page, so I ask that you sign in. Your access will be instantaneous and I get the satisfaction of knowing you are using something I've written.
