FUTURE SEX: IS SEXTECH CHANGING?

FUTURE SEX: IS SEXTECH CHANGING?

Things are constantly changing, and incredible technical advancements are on the horizon, especially regarding sex. Learn more about the future of sex, including sex aids, teledildonics, and sexbots, below.

Medical advancements have always been game-changers in matters of human sexuality. However, The world is now witnessing the introduction of more powerful and sexuality-altering drugs and practices that will change sex in unimaginable ways. People's sexual preferences are changing with time. The world will be a better place if people take charge of their sexuality. Read on to discover how the evolving technology will be a huge investment in people’s sex lives. 

How Will Technology Influence sex?

People’s physical and digital lives are increasingly entwined, and all of the data, which represents their lives, is progressively being pooled in the cloud. This information is utilized to create precise and clever algorithms that you can use to forecast your behavior and obtain a better grasp of your daily life. Marketers and governments mostly utilize it, but you can use it to create a sex device that anticipates your sexual desires before you do. Technology has long been used to enhance sexual pleasure. Researchers uncovered a 28,000-year-old stone dildo in a German cave. Some academics believe that sculptures with significant erotic images dating back to 35,000 BC represent an early version of pornography. The following are the primary technologies that are anticipated to have an impact on sex developments in the coming years:

  • Motors and batteries are becoming miniaturized for stimulation and replicating human movement.
  • Enhanced haptic (touch) interfaces,
  • Brain-computer interface and virtual reality
  • Development of materials, such as stretchable skin
  • Development of materials, such as stretchable skin
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) or supervision and response

Sex Aids

Sex aids, whether for solo or paired sex, are still very popular. Major areas of innovation include more realistic skin-like covers, motion ranges, battery life, and wireless control. Devices like the We-Vibe have become mainstream. However, Hi-tech sex aids, like many other technologies, have drawbacks. We-maker Vibe's recently settled a class-action lawsuit alleging that the firm violated users' privacy by remotely tracking their gadget use.

Teledildonics

Wagne & Broll (2014) suggested that new technology can help in sex with a present partner, a remote partner, and even solitary action. These elements meet in teledildonics, which entails partners communicating without being physically together. Teledildonics is a webcam or phone sex extension. When your partner is not around, you can use remote-controlled sex gadgets to facilitate pleasure. For example, apps like Tinder and Grindr may move in this direction, reducing the perceived risks of physical contact. Sexy Vibes, a Tinder competitor, already functions by converting a smartphone into a vibrator.

Virtual Reality

Because the brain accounts for a large portion of sexual pleasure, improvements in virtual reality that make a simulated sexual encounter more realistic and engaging may be more significant than anatomically accurate physical technology. You may be familiar with online games where players can change their gender, appearance, and species. Sex is already common in games like World of Warcraft, and there is a wide variety of sex games to choose from. Virtual reality could eliminate the necessity for connection to the actual world.

Sexbots

Science fiction is full of sexual robots that act like humans. According to McArthur (2017), sexbots are difficult to construct and suffer from the "uncanny valley." The ethical problems surrounding their development have become the focus of activist campaigns. They resemble humans, but they are significantly different. After you've developed a sexbot, you'll need a mechanism to manage its behavior. One approach could be a faraway companion, while another could be a pre-programmed "digital prostitute." 

It's plausible to envision a future in which a robot may be customized using 3D printing and a set of pre-programmed responses to look and act like a certain human being. Alternatively, developments in machine learning could allow a sexbot to adapt its behavior in reaction to the user's wishes and behaviors, creating an entirely artificial personality. Alexa, Amazon's voice assistant, is already dependable. Tech companies may use Haptic interfaces, gesture recognition, and even brain-computer connections to trigger behavior. Robots may be thought to be more empathetic than humans in the future, prompting individuals to get more attached to bots than humans.

A fully functional sexbot resembling a human is still a long way off. Wagner (2018) noted that the major obstacles are recreating human-like movement that relies on hundreds of muscles, developing skin that can feel, and developing a neural system that responds to stimuli. Unless there is a revolution in synthetic muscle design and bioinspired materials, it is doubtful that tech experts may recreate people's movements. In a virtual environment, a sexbot that could pass a "sexual response Turing test" - similar to how Google's Duplex can pass as a human caller – would be far easier to construct.

Some new technology may bring advantages that go beyond pleasure. These tools could be useful for persons worried about their genital function, look, or type. There are currently a variety of artificial penises and vaginas in the sex market, many of which are targeted at transgender persons. For some people, adding sensation to function may make them more tolerable than surgery. Sex and technology are linked in various ways, whether to help overcome a handicap or a loved one's separation or improve pleasure and excitement. Physical technology may complement virtual ones in the future, and imagination may beat realism in design and application.

The Bottom Line

As this article outlines, people have a unique ability to objectify any innovation as a species sexually. People started making dildos as soon as they were able to carve. They started painting sensual canvases as soon as they learned to paint. They started making porn as soon as they were able to film. The term 'sex tech' is popular today, but it has been in existence for as long as we can remember. Technology will change people’s sex lives and probably make sex easier and more pleasurable.
