Future Sex: Gizmos, Robots, Teledildonics
Posted on Apr 17, 2006
America’s top sex researchers envision a mainstream adoption of technologies like “teledildonics,” which allows remote mutual manipulation of devices like vibrators.
When America’s top sex researchers gathered recently to discuss the next decade in their field, some envisioned a future in which artificial sex partners could cater to every fantasy.
“What is very likely to be present before 2016 would be a multi-sensual experience of virtual sex,” said Julia Heiman, director of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University, Bloomington.
“There is a possibility of developing erotic materials for yourself that would allow you to create a partner of certain dimensions and qualities, the partner saying certain things in that interaction, certain things happening in that interaction.”
