Trigger Warning: The purpose of this page is to illuminate a difficult-to-talk about topics, the internet, the arrival of widely available pornography, and masturbation.  The perspective is sex-positive.  If you disagree with what is here that's OK.  These books and articles are representative of how I think about sexuality and the internet, and are representative of my path towards mental health.  I was on the early wave of internet adoption for my generation (which is gen-X).  My first password dates to when I was 13, and was for professor-level access to a university unix system, and all that implies in terms of newsgroups and other media.     Often it feels like Judaism and aspects of personal sexuality are in conflict, but I assert that there is room for lots of perspectives and approaches to sexual expression.
