Sexual Privacy Online

Can anyone really be sexually anonymous online? Being outed, thinking you're "anonymous", trolls and stalkers taking advantage of online communities, porn laws resulting in performers being stalked, Google's history logs tracking all of us, and paying for adult goods and services online safely: Internet sexual privacy affects everyone -- and our rights. This panel brings together a spectrum of views on sexual privacy and identity, including controversial sex bloggers, a cyberlaw expert and a hacker who works for a social networking site. We'll discuss and demonstrate how easy it is to lose control of your sexual identity online -- and how to get it back, or keep it intact in the first place. You don't have to be a sex blogger, answer the wrong Craigslist ad, or order a vibrator online to have your sexual identity messed with -- sometimes all you need to be is female, LGBT, or just make a simple mistake when you hit "send". The consequences can be devastating. We will explore what obstacles face maintaining personal privacy, including bad or unsympathetic online community management, system and social exploits (like Craigslist baiting and outing), stalkers and trolls, the legal aspects of sexual privacy online and their application for individuals, and what you can do to keep your sexual privacy, private.
