The Internet has changed the way we communicate, do business, and access information. But how has it affected our sexuality and sexual relationships? Can a person truly fall in love with someone online? How has “sex-tech” altered our view of intimacy? Learn more about how the Internet is rewriting the rules of romance and some of the fundamental principles of psychology as well.

L. Kris Gowen, PhD, has been a sexuality educator for over 10 years and is a former section leader for the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). As part of her role as faculty and research associate at Portland State University, she has been teaching Human Sexuality and other sexual health courses since 2002. Her research interests include how the Internet impacts adolescent sexuality. 

Quench your thirst and feed your head. Learn about cutting-edge topics in science and technology from leading experts, in an interactive, informal atmosphere where there’s no such thing as a dumb question.

Everyone has fun at Science Pub, from those completely unfamiliar with science to self-identified “science geeks.”
