Dating apps, sex doll, porn and new technology. Our love and sex life is a far cry from what it used to be. On the contrary, more and more digital developments are helping us with this. Scientists are already predicting a number of trends in relationships and sex in the future.
The future anthropologist Rowan van Furst, affiliated with the University of Amsterdam, looked at sex and relationships with insight. She shared five futuristic sex trends with our southern neighbors from the magazine Good feeling.
The sex robot of the future?
Futurist David Levy previously predicted that by 2050 we wouldn’t have to worry about a bot partner. He stated that one in ten young men will have sex with a sex doll in the future.
Van Forest researched future sex trends. for her book Six in bed She even visited a real brothel for dolls in Austria. deduced? Despite the large genitals and six packs, the doll remains a doll. Although the sex robot does whatever you want it to, it removes all the spontaneity and purity of love and lust. According to her, such an invention could provide opportunities for lonely people or prisoners with life imprisonment. Or for youth as ‘exercise material’.
Five future trends for relationship and sex
1. Digital Dating Algorithm
According to the predictions, 70 percent of people will find their future love online by 2040. With this, the well-known dating app is also changing to a whole different level. According to the anthropologist, technologists also use video, audio, and algorithms in online dating. For example, another app or tool can pre-select who works for you and who doesn’t. Among other things, based on your social media. Van Furst asserts that computers cannot think and feel. “That’s why it is so dangerous to evaluate technology above human intuition.”
2. DNA Dating
Science is now able to tell if you and your potential partner are a match based on biological characteristics. Van Furst took the test himself and investigated whether she and her partner, according to science, were suitable for €300. which turned out to be so. Although the researcher believes that love is more mysterious and complex than just matching genes.
Trend watchers predict, according to Van Forest, that there will be “sex” in the future, which means that we are less interested in sex. This anthropologist explains this through a wide range of genders at all levels. “Sex is no longer a forbidden fruit, which makes us want it less.”
Pornography, games, and other accessible resources ensure that our imaginations are less needed. „They have become so thanks to the digital and pornographic community “Excessive sex, but underage”Explains the world.
But how do we ensure that the younger generation does not get bored of sex? According to the anthropologist, more real sex is needed for this. “Less fake boobs and smoothly tailored vaginas, more realistic bodies and real sex scenes.”
4. Pills and dosages
Scientists at Oxford University talk about future love drugs. Van Voorst explains that you can actually find enough love potions and pills online. “Although the evidence for its work is often still weak.”
However, the anthropologist sees an increase in the use of MDMA in relationships. “More and more couples are prescribing to their clients discreet sessions with MDMA because it increases empathy. In this context, I definitely see it becoming legal.” And in Australia and the United States, trials are underway on the “cuddler hormone” oxytocin.
5. More than monogamy
Interest in alternative forms of relationships is also increasing. You will find more and more about polygamy and like-minded people on the Internet. By the way, the researcher asserts that the relationship with many people is a more difficult business than one might think. “Polyamory is hard work: you have to make everyone happy and divide your time fairly.” It turns out we’re more open about it, but whether all the couples doing the experiment keep up with it is another matter.
Whether or not monogamy exists, we can’t stop talking about it. Because we also know that cheaters do exist. By the way, did you know that there are quite a few scientific explanations for adultery? subway I’ve previously explored why we judge cheaters, yet we commit adultery.
