Digisexuality Likely To Rise As Sex Robots Become More Popular | Alternet
With the rise of technology, so too comes the rise of a new category of intimacy. Digisexuals, or people who primarily use technology for sexual satisfaction, could soon become more prolific in society, according to experts.
“It is safe to say the era of immersive virtual sex has arrived,” said Neil McArthur, the director of the Center for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of Manitoba and the author of a new scientific study on digisexuality.
McArthur and a team from the university published a new report in the Journal of Sexual and Relationship Therapy detailing the need to be prepared for a rise in digisexuality.
“As these technologies advance, their adoption will grow and many people will come to identify themselves as ‘digisexuals’ – people whose primary sexual identity comes through the use of technology, McArthur said, according to the Telegraph. “Many people will find that their experiences with this technology become integral to their sexual identity and some will prefer them to direct sexual interactions with humans.”
Ah l’anglais... quant à ceux qui garderons le terme américain en français, ils n’ont pas fini de nous faire rigoler. Et vlan pour ceux qui prône le retour du terme “digital” qui serait “autre chose que le numérique” ;-)
