We use technology everywhere … finding dates, staying connected to our loved ones through text messaging, to flirt and keep a sexual charge alive while separated … And now we are using technology to enhance sexual pleasure. Its not like I am relaying some shocking news.
Claire Cavanah, one of the co-authors of 'Sex Toys 101' and co-founder of the 15-year-old store, Babeland, which specializes in sex education and toys says technology “can give your fantasy life a boost through the use of porn DVDs or porn sites, for example … Sex toys, even at their most basic, can bring orgasms to people who have never had them, and are now learning their users’ preferences.᾿
Over the past decade or so, people, both men and women alike have tapped into their love of technology and devices to facilitate more pleasure. According to a study in 2004 by The Berman Center that specializes in sexual health and wellness 44% of women between the ages of 18 and 60 have used a sex toy, with 78% of these women in relationships.

“Humans have always sought to sexualize technology and technologize sex᾿ says Regina Lynn, author of 'The Sexual Revolution 2.0'. With sex and technology this intertwined, the TV and movies are kind of feeding our imagination and possibilities for the future.
Yeah … the future… and given all this technological changes we have seen over the years, it was just but a matter of tine before we incorporated hard drives into one of the most basic of human drives. Some toys have come out that plug into a USB port and allow a remote user to control the toy.
Are we headed towards the direction of virtual sex or are we going to try out some more AND more hardware?
Carol Green, writer and cultural sexologist says there is a technology now in its infancy to employ a computer “to connect two vibrators and the people using them, across the world.᾿ She also thinks there will be the idea of using “sensor-packed suits to put us into the action in a porn movie, for example, or even just make love with a partner across distance.᾿
And then the sex robots! Talk about ultimate hardware. Are they more human since we can theoretically program them to be?
Can these devices really replace flesh and blood?
