Sexual Evolution: Love and Sex Reformatted for the Digital Age or How We Got from Spin-the-Bottle to Sexting in a Single Generation

RobWeiss_0608s

As we continue our rapid cultural shift from our familiar analog world into the wild, wild digital one, sexual and relationship norms are changing. What defines sex, a relationship, dating, mating and even fidelity, (especially to a younger person today), is changing as meaningful and rapidly (if less visibly) now, as it did via 50 years ago resulting from the sexual revolution of the late 1960’s and early 1970’.

This workshop by Rob Weiss, a clinical leader, author and subject expert in the intersection of digital technology and human sexuality, is designed to offer a broad, but concrete overview of the changing face of human relationships and sexuality related to life online. The ‘new sexuality’ provoked in great part by the Millennials and Gen Y generations’ unlimited access to sexual information (and experience) will be introduced. Attendees will gain insight into related current trends in online sexuality, both positive and negative, along with problems faced by parents, employers and loved ones related to our now instantaneous Internet-driven access to intensely pleasurable sexual imagery and casual, anonymous sex. Clinicians will also gain insight into the assessment, and diagnosis of addictive and compulsive sexual behavior, along with a review of the challenges being voiced by teen males whose porn abuse has left many with erectile and intimacy dysfunction. The session will briefly cover co-occurring disorders and differential diagnosis of sexual issues related to the Internet. The training will also make available further referral and training resources for those clinicians motivated to gain further knowledge, help and experience with our very human sexual evolution.
