Prodding pleasures & intimate encounters

The futuristic terms teledildonics or cyberdildonics make most people think of advanced sex robots that will do everything we want. Setting science fiction aside however, there are more and more ‘everyday’ sex toys on the market that are gradually changing our sexual experience (and our sexuality) and that go much, much further than the standard vibrator.

Will a human partner become obsolete if you have the perfect, ultra-advanced sex toy that knows exactly how to satisfy you, your body and your every wish and desire? Or will it in fact bring lovers closer together because they are now able to touch each other’s bodies from far away?

This evening brought together experts, researchers, developers and artists to share their views on digitised pleasure and online intimacy.
