Sexuality and the internet is often and only a point of discussion when a “harm” or a “violation” has occurred. What is “harmful content” on the internet? The definition is contestable, subjective and open to a range of interpretations, and the majority of interventions to combat it are mostly concerned with obscenity and child pornography. Sexual rights workers are troubled by the growing role of conservative forces – supported by religious extremists – and their attempts to encourage new legislation that would treat all online sexual exchanges as sexual predation and all adult content on the internet as pornography. This protectionist approach overshadows other important aspects of the internet that directly impact on internet users’ lives and their ability to access vital information on sexuality, sexual health and sexual rights. However, sexuality and the internet also contribute to one’s experience of exploration, pleasure and play. EROTICS is a two phase, exploratory research project carried out by APC, which aims to narrow the gap between political assumptions and a better understanding of content, “harm” and pleasure based on loved experiences of women, sexuality and gender diverse people and people with disabilities online.
