Not sure what sextortion is? You’d like to learn more about sexuality and cybersecurity? You find it odd that the only advice to protect yourself from sextortion you’ve ever been given is to refrain from sending nudes to your partner.s?
From the April 18th to May 1st, 2022, in collaboration with the Center of multidimensional conflicts of Raoul-Dandurand Chair in strategic and diplomatic studies and with funding from Canadian Heritage, Les 3 sex* led an extensive campaign addressing the multiple dimensions of sextortion.
The campaign aimed to provide an operational and theoretical framework to define sextortion, disseminate new scientific, sexological and political knowledge related to sexuality and cybersecurity, and promote a culture of online consent.
