Sex, Sex Work and the Web #TtW14

I had the distinct honor of being a panelist at this year’s Theorizing the Web conference which too place in Brooklyn NY April 25& 26th. My panel “Sex Work and the Web, was moderated by the amazing Melissa Gira Grant, author of Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work  . My fellow panelists included Emma Caterine of Red Umbrella Project , adult film actress and writer Stoya,  and CEO and owner of Hookonline Hawk Kinkaid. You can watch the panel here :

Our panel dealt with sex workers and clients adapting to new digital technology and the hardships or progress gained by moving into a digital space.  We took questions both from the live audience and from twitter.  

I had the opportunity to speak with the amazing Maggie Mayhem, fellow adult model and writer whose panel Casual Encounters: Sex, Sexuality and Intimacy was fascinating. It’s always a treat to meet my favorite tweeters in person and Maggie is just a force. If you would like to experience her words and work please follow her on twitter.  You can watch her entire panel here:

The Keynote panel Race and Social Media was moderated by Andre Brock featured some great voices including  Latoya Peterson, someone I very much admire for her work with  and I hate myself for not getting to meet,  NYTimes Tech writer Jenna Wortham,  Univ. of Michigan Prof. Lisa Nakamura ,  and BuzzFeed writer and section editor Ayesha Siddiqi.  Treat yourself and watch it here:
