The Future Of Sex: Smart Devices, Robotics And Virtual Reality

Sensors, cognitive computing and robots — how will the technological innovations taking place rapidly all around us also change one of the most intimate human behaviors?

Sex bots have been a science fiction staple since the genre began. But could realistic robotic sex dolls ever be a real thing?

They already are, and it’s not just robots that are infiltrating this market; several kinds of new technology are changing the landscape, and perhaps even our behaviors.

Smart sex toys

Berkley-based Lioness is producing a sex toy for women that not only provide a pleasurable experience, but also allow the woman to learn more about her sexuality and physical body.

The product has five built-in sensors that connect to a smartphone app and measure user’s individual muscle responses, body temperatures, and other physical factors to make suggestions about the best way to use the device based on individual and aggregate (private!) data. It lets users discover patterns in both their sex drive and experiences which can be correlated to conditions like time of day, mood, menstrual cycles, and stress levels.

The startup, which is almost entirely women run, is focused on problem-solving design features for a product designed by women, for women. But it raises the possibility that these sorts of technologies could go beyond pleasure and be useful in diagnosing problems, treating conditions, and doing health research using the anonymized data.

Virtual reality

With the release of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, the inevitable has also accompanied it: virtual reality pornography. David Moye of the Huffington Post tried out Naughty America’s first virtual reality porn offerings and wrote about them, and other companies are hot on their tails.
