The Future Of Techno Sexuality
Exhibit|July 2018

If technology is everywhere, why would sex be an exception?!

With the growing trend of virtual reality porn stars, sex robots ending the oldest profession, people keeping a life-sized sex doll, and long distance touch and kisses, it won’t be surprising to see the humans of future have a new kind of sexuality – Technosexuality!

It’s time to accept that technology is entering even the most intimate area of our lives. This is the generation of dating apps. However, the impact of technology in the bedroom hasn’t been so upfront but that certainly won’t take much time.

It’s a no-brainer that the technology we have now will take a leap and trends like VR and AR will stretch the 2D porn experience to the next level. In the future, we might have proper AR glasses which can project digital pictures on to real life scenarios. It might even get possible for people to purchase apps that can project their celebrity crush on the real people or maybe create scenes that are impossible to experience in real life. Surprised?

Dr. Ian Pearson, a futurologist even speculated that by 2050, human-robot sex will be more common than human-human sex. Is there any chance for that to happen? Considering the state of technology, anything is possible.

WHERE DOES ALL THIS COME FROM?

Joseph Mortimer Granville, while inventing vibrator for relieving pain, did not know that he was also inventing the most pleasurable device for the human race. Yes, you heard it right. These early vibrators were created for the medical profession where it was used for treating a wide variety of ailments in people and accidentally became a sexual device after few years.

And the popularity award goes to… Fleshlight - Steve Shubin

Necessity is the mother of invention. Well, it stands true in the case of Steve Shubin. It all started when his wife was pregnant with twins. But she’d already had several miscarriages, so the pregnancy was complicated. And this prevented Steve from having sex.

That set Steve Shubin thinking about a realistic alternative for sexual intercourse.

He thought about creating a realistic body sculpture with orifices that could be used for solo sex but then that would take a couple of months and would also cost about $50,000 to get a marketable prototype. It actually took 18 months and $750,000 along with a lot of experimenting to make useable body portions, referred to as ‘mannequins with a sexual application’.

Although his idea of an entire fake human was brilliant and did successfully serve its purpose, it was too huge (human size) for anyone to buy it. He quickly began to redesign the product in his mind, something that should be portable; it had to be small; able to fit easily into the hand so that it could facilitate the use of the product. According to him, a sex toy should look like a great tool for your tool and hence the idea of a flashlight came in and tweaked the name to call it ‘Fleshlight’.

Today, the Fleshlight sex toy is probably the biggest thing ever to happen to the male sex toys industry. Since the introduction, Fleshlight sex toys has maintained the fact that their products won’t look cheap and classless with their packagings such as beer cans, Succu Dry, the fanged blowjob toy sex toy for vampire lusters or even an alien Fleshlight with blue pussy flesh.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT FLESHLIGHT:

Steve Shubin was catching bad guys as a swAT officer for LAPD before making the world’s best-selling sex toy for men.

Steve Shubin ’s eldest son who makes the molds for Fleshlight, also makes full-face and body molds for top Hollywood movies.

For the better pleasure and convenience, the vagina is actually bigger than a real female vagina with exaggerated lips and clit.

The patent description is really funny though. it says ‘a discreet semen collecting device.’

Fleshlight has sold over 4 million units around the world, where it ships more to Alaska than any other us state.

NOT A TOY STORY

Sex toys have already created a lot of buzz and innovations are expected in the future as well. Technology is something that is creating things that were considered impossible even a few years ago. It has also managed to trickle down its application even through our most intimate activities. The sex toy industry had the brilliant idea of making these hi-tech male sex toys that are so captivating that it would change the way we have sex in the future. This also proves that toys are not restricted to any change.

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL

Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
