Podcast #26 Feona Attwood: Understanding Online Porn

By 24th December 2015 No Comments

“The relationship between sex and technology is an old and established one; technologies have always been adapted for sexual purposes and…sex drives technological development.”

In this episode, we speak with Professor Feona Attwood who researches sex in contemporary culture, sexual cultures, new technologies, identity and the body and controversial media. Feona is one of the founding editors of the journal Porn Studies and a co-editor of the journal Sexualities.

Feona is the author of several books on the topic of sex, technology and contemporary culture including Porn.com: Making Sense of Online Pornography, Mainstreaming Sex: The Sexualisation of Western Culture, Investigating Young People’s Sexual Cultures and Controversial Images: Media Representations on the Edge.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What porn actually is and what it isn’t
  • Why it is unhelpful to say that someone is ‘addicted’ to porn
  • The impact of porn on society and personality types
  • The future of technology and sex
