Internet sexuality research in the globalized modern world

Higher seminar

Four quantitative surveys on sexuality and online behavior build the basis of the presentation: a web survey among MSM in Germany (Summer 2011), two global web surveys (in 25 languages) among MSM (Spring 2013 and Winter 2014/2015) and one representative survey among both homosexual and heterosexual students (Summer 2014). First of all, selected requirements and methodological issues of the intercultural web surveys will be discussed (e.g. mobile vs. desktop questionnaire) and selected strategies for data analysis and presentation will be outlined.

Secondly, the internet's potential to subvert sexual repressive laws and public opinion will be demonstrated by comparing the online dating behavior of MSM from different cultures. Finally, a comparison between online and offline sexual practices will be presented to give first impressions and to motivate new questions regarding modern sexualities. Changes in offline sexuality resulting from online communication as well as internet sexuality being a self-contained sexual mode will be discussed.

Lecturer: Richard Lemke is a research and teaching associate at the Department of Communication of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany. Research interests are sexuality, online communication and methods of social research.
