Podcast Mixtape: Future of Sex

Originally Aired: Sunday June 3, 2018

Future of Sex

Join Future of Sex host Bryony ColeMake Love Not Porn Founder Cindy Gallop, Culture Editor for Jezebel Clover Hope, and Emma Sulkowicz, performance artist and winner of the National Organization for Women’s Woman of Courage Award, for a live conversation on sex, tech and consent in 2018.

Revenge porn, sexting, cyber-flashing, blockchain and social sex are some of the modern ways sexuality is being shaped by technology. Today, sexual harassment and abuse are perpetrated as commonly in real life as they are through the internet. While sexual harassment is a problem that has preceded and been molded by technology, they explore whether or not technology can be a solution, rather than a part of the problem. They ask questions like, Is there a future where consent-affirming tools are built into platforms like Snapchat? Is the future of sex more promising because of technological advancements, or is it worse?
