Sex, Technology, and Public Healthby Mark Davis
This book explores the connections between sexual practice, the internet, bio-technologies, and public health. Online dating and social networking websites have been linked with new possibilities for intimacy and sexual relating. Viagra and other forms of sexuopharmacy are said to be altering the experience of sexual practice and pleasure. There are public health concerns that these uses of technology are associated with the transmission of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. At the same time, public health is exploiting such technologies for its own purposes. With reference to research concerning the implications of the internet and bio-technologies for sexually transmitted infections and HIV and the concept of sexual citizenship, this book contributes to a critical public health for the intersections of sexual practice and technology.
