Come discuss ageing, sexuality and design at our DIS2020 virtual workshop.
Despite an increasing interest in ageing in HCI, issues of sexuality and intimacy are rarely addressed, with elderly bodies often marginalised, infantilised and rarely considered as desired, desirable or sexual. Older age also brings an increased risk of dementia, which raises issues of informed consent in sexual relationships. Given a similarly recent increase in interest in sexual health in HCI, we bring together these converging interests in this two-part workshop, where we raise these and related topics with the DIS community to bring together researchers from a wide variety of fields to explore future avenues for research and design in this understudied but potentially rich field.
