Emily Witt with Dr. Pepper Schwartz ‘Future Sex’

In conversation with University of Washington Professor of Sociology and relationship expert Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Emily Witt discusses her experience researching and writing the book Future Sex: A New Kind of Free Love, about the complexities of romance, sex, and intimacy in the digital age.

Future Sex is an important work not as a futurist project, but as evidence of the contemporary changing roles of sexuality and (sub)socially sanctioned relationships. Witt connects these roles to the ubiquity of digital media and access to communities, representations and spaces of individual freedom, even if these are often pursued and participated in under paradigms of marketing, consumption, Information Technology, Power and more general definitions of emerging bourgeois self-identity.
