The Internet and smartphones have significantly changed how ordinary people interact not only with one another, but with their own sexuality. Intimacy takes on new definitions, as we use technology to not only keep in touch and connected with one another, but for sexting and other talk that has, in the past, been reserved for face-to-face time. You may not be doing it, but I bet dimes to donuts someone you know is.

Which is a very good reason to have a blog about sex, intimacy and technology here at Psych Central. I’m pleased to introduce Sex and Intimacy in the Digital Age, a blog about sexual addiction and problems, adultery and cheating in the digital age of the Internet, smartphones, and always being connected. A day doesn’t go by where we don’t hear how the Internet and other digital media are impacting our relationships in both positive and negative ways. Porn addiction is one of a relationship’s new problems, and with ready access to sexual materials online and on the go via our smartphones, Android devices, iPads and iPhones, it’s no wonder.

Robert Weiss LCSW, CSAT-S is the host of this new blog. He is the founding Director of The Sexual Recovery Institute, Los Angeles and Director of Sexual Disorders Services at The Ranch Treatment Center in Nunnelly, Tennessee.

Please give him a warm Psych Central welcome, as I look forward to learning and reading more about sex addiction, intimacy, the digital age and its impact on healthy relationships at Sex and Intimacy in the Digital Age.
