Technosexualism: When Devices Turn You On

Do you get a special thrill unboxing a brand new phone? What about that sweet tingle when you fire up a state-of-the-art computer? Or, even better, does the idea of having wildly erotic playtimes with a synthetic lover get your nether regions all hot and bothered?

If any of these sound familiar then, congrats, you might very well have a streak of technosexualism in you.

This isn’t the only word for the idea of being aroused by technology, as others have also proposed technofetishism and digisexual—for the sake of time and space, we’re going to keep using technosexualism. Though, by all means, feel free to think of your own, more personally accurate term.

Let’s look inside technosexualism, and what makes it so hot for some kinksters.

Techno Arousal

The idea behind technosexualism is that some folks can feel aroused by thinking about or using technology. Sometimes this is an abstract concept, and perhaps only vaguely erotic when you’re talking about things like computers or smartphones. At other times the arousal is direct and very sexual, usually when it involves sextech devices like vibrators or life-like sexbots.

As we have greater access to cool technology, especially tech that’s designed to be directly sexual from the get-go, it’s obvious that technosexualism is on the rise and will get even more popular as new alluring devices come on the market.

Sex Dolls and Robots

A perfect example of this is the growing demand for life-like sexbots. Only a few years ago they were a rarity—only of interest to a small number of people—but now they are practically everywhere. There is even a rapidly expanding network of sex-doll brothels where anyone can come in and have a technosexual experience with one of these high-end products.

State-of-the-Art Sextech

Another sign of a technosexual renaissance is the groundbreaking work that’s being done in sex toy design and manufacturing. Gone are the days when vibrators were little more than novelty buzzers. Now it’s easy to find toys that are elegantly designed, alluringly shaped, erotically sensual, and smart—be networked to other sex toys or online content such as videos and games, as well as be programmed to respond to their user’s preferences.

Virtual Reality

Practically each and every day some new innovation is popping up, mixing hot sex and cool technology. Virtual Reality (VR) and, to some extent, Augmented Reality (AR) are sweeping the adult entertainment industry, allowing users to get into the action as never before.

Artificial Intelligence

We’re even seeing the rise of artificially intelligent lovers. At first they were rather clumsy chatbots, but now we have systems being integrated into sophisticated sex dolls that sound pretty darn life-like. Sure, they can’t get up and move around yet, but just give the engineers a few more years and, who knows, maybe we’ll have models that are just as good as, if not better than, the real thing.

So if you’re turned on by sweet, sweet tech—or dream of having a robot lover who will help you live out your hottest fantasies, then you might definitely be a technosexual.

And if not, then rest assured that even though all these cool new devices are here to stay—with even more amazing things coming out very very soon—the good old flesh-and-blood way of enjoying sexual pleasure isn’t going away anytime soon.

If anything, these new innovations, like the way so many people enjoy toys in their regular sexytime activities, will make sex even better—adding to the enjoyment and intensity, rather than replacing it with something else.

In the meantime, enjoy your smartphones, your computers, your sex toys, your robot lovers, and rest assured that you are not alone and that the future is going to be even more amazing—and sexy!
