What can Sexting teach us about Consent? | Amy Adele Hasinoff | TEDxViennaSalon
How does intimate sexual communication change when it occurs online or over a mobile phone? In text messaging, we can’t rely on body language or tone of voice, so we need to communicate more directly and explicitly. These aspects of digital communication may help encourage us to express our needs and desires and to develop better ways of negotiating sexual consent with our intimate partners.
Amy Adele Hasinoff researches how and why we view new communication technologies as both the cause of and solution to social problems. She wrote a book on the media, legal, and educational responses to sexting.
