Sex colors all aspects of our lives and makes us who we are, but, we treat it as a disease. Words like birth control, STIs, testing, and prevention drives the rhetoric. Not everybody can debrief their sexual experiences with an expert, or ask a porn star for advice on pleasure, or share their fantasies in a safe environment. But what if we could? What if we don’t rely on a sex-ed class for the masses but instead strategically design micro-opportunities where sexual health is promoted, with no shame, and no stigma? What if we use VR, AI, and robotics to facilitate sex ed? What if the porn industry becomes a vehicle to teach sex and pleasure in all stages of life? We invite you to imagine a world where new norms and technology blend to support how we express and experience sex.
