Webinar: The Truth and Consequences of Strangulation (Choking) During Sex

In this evidence-based presentation, Dr. Debby Herbenick (a Professor at the Indiana University School of Public Health, an internationally recognized sexuality researcher, and author of the forthcoming “Yes Your Kid: What Parents Need to Know About Today’s Teens and Sex”) will share her team’s groundbreaking research on how choking/strangulation has rapidly increased in prevalence, both as part of consensual sex and in connection with college campus and community sexual assaults. dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.


Drawing from Dr. Herbenick’s U.S. nationally representative surveys, college-representative surveys, and interviews with young adults, research findings will be presented that show how people learn about choking/strangulation; how they engage in it; the role of various media (pornography, social media, mainstream media) in shaping this sexual practice; its prevalence, frequency, short-term symptoms, health consequences, and potential neurological changes.


Casey Gwinn, President of Alliance for Hope, and Gael Strack, Director of the training Institute, will share legal considerations in addressing the consent defense, including practical tips to overcome it during your investigation and in court.
