Digital Desire; Sexuality, Relationships & Technology (06/03/2021)

OTAC · April 15, 2021

Session Description

Are you trying to figure out how to address sexting, online dating, and other online risky behaviors? Do you know how to talk about these choices without shaming them? Do you feel prepared to support someone’s choices while hoping to steer them clear of illegal and harmful consequences?

The world of cybersex, online hook-ups and internet relationships is a maze of risks, rewards and dangers. People are using all kinds of tools to seek love, friendship, and sexual interactions – from nude photos and dating websites to pornography, chat rooms, and webcams.

Learning Objectives

  • Discussing the world of online friendships, dating and digital sexual expression
  • Understanding the tools of electronic relationships
  • Outlining the fears, hopes, goals, and dangers of end-users
  • Building skills, standards and safety nets
  • Having a team-based approach to supporting the use of technology


This training is designed to help you learn how to support someone else as they navigate the challenges, weigh the pros and cons of engagement, and learn to understand the potential consequences… all while understanding the powerful drive for human connection.
