THE INTIMACY CRISIS

While physical sexual health is prioritised and highlighted in the LGBT+ community, emotional sexual health is o en le by the wayside. In a culture that’s increasingly de ned by technological advances, our relationships, or lack thereof, are taking a queer turn, say therapists Sarah Gilligan and Fi Connors.

We are all aware that the modernised world we inhabit is fast-paced, hectic and massively dominated by technology. Seismic changes in the way we communicate and interact with each other (think Grindr, Facebook etc.) are having an untold effect on how we deal with each other and how we have relationships.

This is not breaking news, but something that’s gaining more and more traction as the months pass. These days it is difficult to speak about relationships and sex without recognising the all-pervasive nature of technology in our daily lives.

For this article, I took the opportunity to Facetime with my friend, Fi Connors, a natural medicine clinician, educator and author of the emotional sexual health book, When Love is A Drug, who currently resides stateside. We have an appointment to discuss some of the recurring themes that have emerged in our individual practices, in the areas of emotional and sexual wellbeing – the real-time, real life effects that we are both witnessing with our clients on a weekly basis.

About GCN

Our cover star this month Michelle Visage talks about the impact of RuPaul’s Drag Race on its contestants and the world, how being the mother of a queer child has made her more political, and how she’ll be behaving on the panel of Ireland’s Got Talent. ACT UP Dublin get real with the government about PrEP, we ask why there is complete invisibility of Roma LGBT people in Ireland, and we meet a contingent of courageous defenders of LGBT+ human rights across the globe. Plus, new dance-pop kids on the block, Sofi Tukker tell us just can’t believe they’re on every radio in the States, and we explore the impact of tech on queer relationships. It’s a meaty mix for February!
