The internet is a vast, exciting world. However, with this there may be emerging risks to sexual development. Clinicians may be called on to help clients, particularly our younger generation, understand these potentially confusing messages while continuing the balancing act of helping them navigate their sexuality. This presentation will discuss the nature of pornography today. This presentation will next discuss the issues and concerns common when working with young adults who present with potential problematic sexual behaviors.
