Cathrine Kramer presents "Teledildonics for long distance relationships" by Kiiroo

Human+ The future of our species

Our social lives are increasingly mediated by technology, is it inevitable that our sexual activities will be as well? Kiiroo is a company that hopes to bring teledildonics to the mainstream— enabling tactile sexual relations from separate locations via computers. Their interactive sex toys connect to other users to create “a new kind of internet experience.” The risk of contracting STDs and pregnancy are eliminated, but notions of a network enabled ‘free love’ movement might be tempered by a new suite of risks. Fears of being hacked and privacy concerns might spoil the mood for increasingly intimate online activities. As these networked intimacy proliferates, how will social codes be re-defined?
