Chapel Forum: Faithful Sexuality in an Age of Porn – Ken L. Nafziger
The Sexuality Series continues with Dr. Ken L. Nafziger addressing Faithful Sexuality in an Age of Porn. As a psychologist who both practiced and trained doctoral students, Dr. Nafziger addresses questions about porn such as – Is it a form of safe sex? How does porn affect the brain, erectile dysfunction and real sex? Is porn the norm for more exciting sex? Since BDSM emphasizes consent, is it good? Examples from composites of real life clients will make this relevant for both males and females.
