Each day we move deeper into a modern era where technology blends into every aspect of our lives, including sexual identities, expressions, courtship behaviours, and relationship formation. However, it can sometimes be hard for therapists to help when things go awry, because of an ever-shifting digital landscape which asks a never-ending question of what is right and what is right now? Change brings needed growth, but also unexpected consequences that we are grappling with in real time. This session provides a basic overview of some of the sexual technology currently out in the world, what may be on the horizon and the joys and challenges new technology bring to an already complex part of our lives.
