Online Sexuality Education on YouTube

Prof. Döring publishes in Zeitschrift für Sexualforschung

Zeitschrift für Sexualforschung

What do adolescents find if they seek answers to their sexuality related questions on YouTube? Prof. Döring, research group media psychology and media design, examines this question in her original contribution "Online Sexuality Education on YouTube: Analysis of Status Quo and Practical Recommendations for Sexual Pedagogy", published in the peer-reviewed "Zeitschrift für Sexualforschung" (Journal of Sexuality Research). The paper demonstrates that YouTube provides a large number of German langugage sexuality education videos. They are published not by the established specialized institutions (e.g., BZgA, pro familia, Deutsche Aidshilfen), though, but by very different content providers.
