A growing number of young adults who were a part of the first generation to grow up with unlimited access to internet porn are experiencing sexual dysfunctions. As a result of these porn-induced problems, they are giving up porn and speaking up. This presentation will discuss porn’s negative effects on the user, the science behind the phenomena, and how the demographic and background of those struggling destroys misconceptions and changes the conversation.
Gabe Deem is an activist for better sex education, and public speaker. After recovering from an addiction and porn-induced sexual dysfunction himself, he has spent years studying the science of addiction, and now runs RebootNation.org, a free, online community to help addicts and their partners overcome problems related to porn use. With a passion for helping others and raising awareness, Gabe now speaks internationally, and has shared his story with Time Magazine, Katie Couric, Chelsea Handler, MTV, and many others.
