Current State of Research on Sexual Activities in the Digital Context

Prof. Döring publishes in the journal “Psychotherapeut”

Journal “Psychotherapeut”

In her article „Sexuelle Aktivitäten im digitalen Kontext. Aktueller Forschungsstand und Handlungsempfehlungen für die Praxis“ ["Sexual Activities in the Digital Context. Current State of Research and Recommendations for Practice"] published in the journal Psychotherapeut (Impact Factor: 0.441) Prof. Dr. Nicola Döring, Research Group Media Psychology and Media Design, summarizes what we know about six central forms of sexual activity in the digital context. The article deals with online sex education (1) and digital pornographies (2), with online and mobile dating (3), sexuality-related online communities (4), sex products (5) and sex work (6) on the Internet. Specifically from a psychotherapeutic perspective, risks and problems are often the focus of attention. However, the research also points to opportunities and resources that need to be identified and further developed.
