Human Touch – How Technology Has Shaped Sex Over The Years

Say what you will about humanity, as troubled as our world is today, you cannot deny just how impressive our technological advancement has been in recent years. Take the digital revolution as an example: in just a few short years we have revolutionised the way that the world operates. Our smart phones and devices influence everything we do, from the way we eat, exercise, plan our day, work, consume information, and even get laid! 

In this article, we’re going to talk about the human touch and how technology has shaped our sex lives over the years. 

Sex toys are everywhere! 

Humanity has been making sex toys for eons. That’s right! In Germany, a 30,000-year-old siltstone phallus was unearthed in a cave which stands testament to the fact that humanity is obsessed with all things sexual. Fast forward to today and you don’t need to go rooting around in a cave to find a dildo.

The language of love 

But it’s not all crass and crude. There are a number of apps that have been developed in recent years that can help improve our relationships and our sexual health as well. Take Love Nudge as an example: this app allows lovers to learn more about one another’s likes and needs and has been found to help many couples all over the world to take their levels of intimacy to even greater heights! 

Pornography can be summoned at the click of a button 

If you hopped in a time machine, went back just a few short years and showed someone a couple of people having sex inside your smart phone, they’d think you were some kind of kinky wizard. But having a seemingly endless supply of pornography that you can watch anywhere, at any time so long as you have a WiFi connection is both a blessing and a curse.

Yes, pornography can be incredibly fun to watch, but it does set unrealistic sexpectations – particularly on the younger generations. There are thousands of different sex toys and bondage devices that can be purchased online and technology is pushing these intimate trinkets to new and exciting levels of gratification. 

Find hook-ups with a swipe of your finger 

It’s not just porn that can be found in an instant, but hook-ups as well. There are tonnes of different apps that can help you find prospective partners who are looking for casual sexual hook-ups. Back in the day a man would have to go to great lengths to woo a woman, often having to put a ring on her finger and wait until marriage before he could pop his clogs. Today, all you need are some evocative photos and a cheeky chat up line and you are good to go! 

The future of sex 

It’s been a strange few years and one can only imagine how much weirder it’s going to get! What with the rise of VR and augmented reality, coupled with the ever-increasing availability of high-quality sex dolls, it’s fair to say that the future of sex may look less and less about two people falling in love and more like one person falling down a virtual reality rabbit hole!
