William Struthers: "Digital Sexuality"
  • Wednesday, March 4, 2015 @ 7:00 p.m.

Pornography is powerful. Our contemporary culture has been 'pornified', and this has shaped our assumptions about identity, sexuality, the value of women and the nature of relationships. In this lecture we will look at how sexually explicit and suggestive images activate the brain and what impact this has on our sexuality. By better understanding the biological realities of our sexual development and exploring Christian narratives about sexuality we will look to cultivate faithful sexual perspectives and interpersonal relationships. William M. Struthers is a Professor of Psychology at Wheaton College where he investigates the clinical and neurological issues surrounding compulsive pornography use. He is trained as a behavioral neuroscientist and is the author of Wired for Intimacy: How Pornography Hijacks the Male Brain (2009). Known internationally for his advocacy work against pornography, Dr. Struthers will share some of his recent research and discuss the how Christian faith can engage digital sexuality.

Location: Weyerhaeuser Hall Robinson Teaching Theatre, Wey 107
