Technology is now central to our existence, permeating every aspect of our daily lives, including everything related to sexuality. In several of our recent reviews, we have discussed the role of the Internet in the consumption of pornography by young people and in sex work. The list of areas where technology and intimacy are linked is endless. Whether it's LGBTQ+ cultures, anti-sexual exploitation, feminism, intimate relationships, or STI prevention, the two topics are inextricably linked, for better and sometimes, unfortunately, for worse. As part of our "Sexuality and Technology" conference, we offer you a review of scientific productions on current issues concerning our digital lives and our intimacy. A vast program.
