Designing the Sex Education We Deserve

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 designed for the masses but instead engage in relevant micro-opportunities where our 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.
