Sex Tech: The Rise of Teledildonics, Sex Robots, VR, and Digisexuals
All you need to do is take a look at the change in cell phones over the last decade to see that technology is rapidly advancing. Tech is getting smaller and more sophisticated and scientific knowledge of how humans work is expanding. We know so much more about our minds, bodies, and desires than we did before and tech companies are getting extra clever about the integration of technology into our personal lives.
We have apps that control our lights, apps that hook us up, and even apps that track our menstrual cycles. Think of practically anything and, in all likelihood, there’s an app for that. The internet, the great connector, has facilitated the transfer of knowledge from one industry to the next and cool ideas are advancing just about everything, so I asked myself, “How is technological innovation changing sex?”.
What I found really opened my eyes.
First things first, I’m going to bring you up to speed on the latest technologies. A lot has happened since I was a budding young sexual in the late 90s. Back then, it was all cybering in chat rooms and household object experimentation…I was a child, after all, and I had to work with what I had.
Fast forward to my 20s when I bought my first vibrator. At the time, I remember seeing an early teledildonic vibrator in the store that could sync up to your music on your phone and I was so impressed! I didn’t yet have a smartphone, but I have to admit that once I knew about it, all of the other dildos seemed suddenly less interesting. There’s so much potential with integrating tech!
Did you see how casually I just dropped that one? Teledildonics is that fun word you’ve at least heard once but that may yet remain a mystery to you. Let me clear that up. Teledildonics are Android/iOS controlled toys, like ones created by Lovense and We-Vibe, that allow your toys to be controlled remotely. Kiiroo is taking teledildonics way into the future for remote sex, and I’ll talk more about that later. Vibrators can be synced to the music you’re listening to, mimic your cunnilingus skills or give you a long-distance deep-throating!
