re:publica 2010 – Melissa Gira Grant – Sex and the Internet

Talk by Melissa Gira Grant at re:publica 2010 in Berlin about “Sex and the Internet”


“Exposure. Connection. Pleasure. Its axiomatic that sex has driven mass adoption of the internet as a communications and publishing platform. But how does the internet in turn shape personal, social, and political expressions of sexuality? Looking back on the last ten years of the web — from the birth of blogging and the dot-com bust to the rise of social networking and moral panics around internet prostitution and amateur pornography — writer and activist Melissa Gira Grant will tease out key questions and propose a model for engaging with sex on the internet not as an online red light district to police to the margins, but as something central to our collective condition.”
