Dr. Marty Klein to Give Talk at AVN Adult Entertainment Expo

America’s War On Sex. That’s the title of an award-winning book by sociologist and therapist Marty Klein—and it’s a concept that those who work in the adult industry can no doubt understand. That’s just one of Klein’s seven books on sexuality and relationships, including Sexual Intelligence, about which Psychology Today opined, “To improve your sex life, buy this book.” During his 34 years as a California Licensed marriage and family therapist and certified sex therapist, he’s learned a few things about sexuality—and that hard-won knowledge can benefit attendees at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, where Klein is scheduled to give a talk titled “Has the Internet Really Changed Anything About Sexuality?” Klein is frequently quoted by the popular media, such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, National Public Radio and Huffington Post. He appears in federal, state, and international courts as an expert witness on topics such as internet sexuality, pornography, obscenity and sexual fantasy. His new book will be published in September 2016, titled “His Porn, Her Pain: Confronting America’s Pornography Obsessions With Honest Talk About Sex.” He’s also appearing on The Daily Show next month talking about—what else?—pornography. Each year Klein trains thousands of physicians, psychologists, and social workers across North America, Europe, and Asia—30 countries to date. Audiences consistently call his talks thought-provoking, down-to-earth, and entertaining. Klein offered the following description of his talk, which will take place Friday, January 22 from 2-3 p.m. in Studio 1B in the Paradise Tower. A trade or media badge is needed to gain admittance. Here's the skinny on Klein's seminar, titled... Has the Internet Really Changed Anything About Sexuality? "As a 30-year resident of Silicon Valley, I hear every day that the internet has changed everything. And as a 30-year sex therapist in Silicon Valley, I have a front-row seat for the latest ways that people use technology as part of dating, mating, cheating, fantasizing, and long-term coupling. "My patients have helped make me one of the country’s experts on pornography, teaching me who’s watching what, how much, why, and how they feel about it. "I hear about things like Match.com, Tinder, and Ashley Madison. I hear that people continents apart masturbate together on Skype and FaceTime, and it seems like almost everyone is sexting. And I hear about all the amazing information on-line—everything from clitoris size to sexual side effects of drugs to the number of calories in semen. "But after 34 years in that leather chair—half before broadband, the other half since broadband—I can tell you the human heart hasn’t changed. People still want to connect, and still find it difficult. People still have trouble talking to their mates about sex. People still fantasize about infidelity—and everything else. "And people still lie about sex. "People are still wondering if they’re sexually normal; they still withhold sex, or insist on it, as part of marital politics; they still have sex because they’re lonely—and often feel lonely during and after sex. And people still think men and women are “opposite” sexes, whose perspectives are inevitably different. One proof: the number of women who are enraged that their partners look at porn. "So has the internet changed anything about sexuality? "Only this: our obsession with the constant, intense, novel stimulation of the internet has rendered real sex with an actual person a bit less all-consuming than it used to be. We actually have to remember to pay attention during sex now—since it doesn’t grab us like colorful, noisy websites do, and since it doesn’t promise us the entire world every moment the way our smartphones do. "In this entertaining, fast-paced talk, I’ll talk about what hasn’t changed about sex, review what sex is actually like for most people, how that shapes their porn-viewing habits (and predicts the huge number of couples who fight about porn)—and why it matters to the adult industry." Frankly, it's a seminar that no one who enjoys internet porn (or any other kind) should miss!
