With how more and more gadgets are being created to make our lives easier, is it any wonder that technology is slowly seeping into how we approach relationships and our sex lives? We truly live in an era where technology is now truly a part of our everyday life. In this article, we’ll look at some of the gadgets that are getting us hot under the collar and what the future might hold for our tech-influenced rolls in the hay.
Looking back in time, sex toys were very difficult to lay hands on. There was not a sex shop at every street corner and the toys themselves were not of the highest quality; quite the contrary, some were even considered toxic.
Nowadays, it is child’s play to get yourself a sex toy. You do not even need to leave your house, you can purchase one of the internets, from reputable sellers like Ann Summers, Adam & Eve and so many more. The price range varies and each toy has different functions, more than you could ever imagine.
Another category of sex toys is sex robots. Also known as sexbots, sex robots are artificial human beings designed to have, you guessed it, sex with you. Further advances in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence have gotten to the point that you will no longer be able to distinguish whether your sexbot was having an actual simulated orgasm or just faking it. There are multiple types of sexbots on the market, with different functions just like sex toys.
Meet Harmony 3.0, a sexbot that has human traits and even acts like a real woman. Artificial intelligence has helped sex robot manufacturers to make the robots more real, she can move her head, eyes, mouth, and you can even have a conversation with her. These robots can cost up to $ 8000
The porn industry is a growing industry and these numbers will tell you why;
Every second there are more than 20,000 users that connect themselves to a porn site and more than $ 3000 is spent on pornography per person. Every day around 30 pornographic videos are generated in the U.S alone, and 68 million porn-related searches are done on Google, which is around 25 % of all the searches.
It can be seen as a benefit but beware; porn can lead to addiction, where there is a need for therapy.
Sex At Your Fingertips.
Apart from adult content, you may have heard of dating apps such as Tinder, OkCupid or Grindr, there is something for everyone. In 2021, Tinder will have more than 50 million users, OkCupid has 1.79 million and Grindr has 1.64 million users.
Most of the time, those apps are not used to find the love of your life but rather a one-night stand. So what is better than an app that allows you to have sex with no string attached? Some may think that it is a win-win situation, but it can lead to the inability of building serious relationships.
Virtual reality is also known as VR, allows you to experience adult content in another way. You need a virtual reality device and interactive media (there are many on the internet). They let you customize the backdrop, your partner and the actions that are taking place. You are in control of everything.
Finally, there are very real drawbacks to how sex and technology have collided that we must not overlook. When it comes to sex, though, knowledge and access are power, which is one way that technology has improved human sexuality. Let us know in the comments what do you think about the availability of sex nowadays?
