Internet Pornography: Playing with Sexnology

Thursday, March 24, 2016 7:00 to 8:30 PM

Digital technology is omnipresent and it is said that roughly 13% of all internet searches are sex-related. Although “sexnology” facilitates sexual addiction, it does not cause sexual addiction. This workshop addresses the questions of the function of internet pornography: when does it become a problem, the neurochemistry of cyberporn use (some say it is as addictive as crack cocaine), sex differences, and treatment.

This seminar is designed to help the participant begin to:

 Discuss how cybersex accelerates compulsive sexual behavior.
 Describe how pornography addiction is assessed and commonly treated.
 Evaluate the addictive system and the core unconscious fantasies and beliefs that underly it.

Presenter: Frances Bigda-Peyton, Ph.D., Cert. Psya. is on the faculty at BGSP. She has a private practice in Bedford, MA and has a special interest in the treatment of sexual addiction.
