My talk will describe ways that sexual content on the Internet helps us expand our understanding of sexuality and will explain why efforts to censor "objectionable" content often do more harm than good. I argue that more, rather than less, sexual material should be the goal (she calls this "expanding  the sex commons") and talk about how we can build pathways that help us navigate through sexual material instead of building walls to segregate it from all other online content. 

I'm even losing my power point virginity on this so that I can show screen shots and I'd like to keep working on my slideshow skills.
