The era of virtual sex is closer than ever. Apparently people suck, technology is everywhere, and this is influencing how people relate to each other and develop meaningful relationships. It’s terrifying to watch experts coining terms like “digisexual,” and discussing marriage between humans and robots.
Digisexual, according to LADbible.com, is someone whose sexual and emotional attractions are satisfied by the virtual world, bypassing the need of romantic and sexual human partners. According to Dr. Neil McArthur, an expert from the University of Manitoba, the adoption of this term will become more popular the more technology develops.
“Many people will find that their experiences with this technology become integral to their sexual identity and some will prefer them to direct sexual interactions with humans.”
Researchers also claim that the arrival of sex bots is imminent, and that this is something that tech experts from all over are working very hard to create. These sex dolls will have customizable personalities and looks, a group of traits that will be very valued in our near future. The robots will provide the main source of sexual and social interaction for some people, an idea that psychotherapists should get comfortable with.
