Professional interests 

Dr. Walters’ primary interests – broadly defined – are in the areas of human sexuality, masculinity studies, and developmental health. 

Dr. Walters’ research investigates how socially disenfranchised and/or medically compromised populations adjust to sexual marginalization by the dominant and powerful cultural systems designed to maintain a hegemonic and singular interpretation of gender and sexuality.

Dr. Walters offers training workshops to sexuality educators from a variety of disciplines through professional organizations such as the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, and the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality.
