The Internet has increased access to sexually explicit material while simultaneously creating a new category, "NSFW" (not safe for work), with which to stigmatize sexual material and the discussions around it. Join us to discuss specific strategies for expanding the acceptance of sexual content. We start with the assumption that the stigma around sexuality is still a social problem, and the very blurry category NSFW reinforces that stigma. We see the networking and organizing power of Web 2.0 technologies as a tremendous source of power and cultural leverage for marginalized groups, especially because everybody can learn to use these tools.
