This talk brings together Dr Katrin Tiidenberg and Dr Emily van der Nagel to discuss their recent book 'Sex and Social Media' published under Emerald Publishing's influential 'Society Now' series.

This accessible, entertaining, and thought-provoking text opens up discussions of community, identity, practice and platforms at the intersection of sex and digital technology.
