The Technological Sex has arrived!

We have only seen a fraction of what the future holds for the technological sex.

But it is NOW we should start asking:

What does it all mean? Where will it take us?
How will it influence our relations, abilities, and competencies? What will be the consequences?

THE TALK

Sextech – The Human Disrupter?

 

Disrupt or be disrupted! Today it is a widely held view that dramatic advances in robotics and artificial intelligence put us on the path to a jobless future. While this might or might not turn out to be the case, we should rather start questioning our abilities to solve the tasks that the future will hold for us.

 

Technology has permeated our most private and intimate space of human life: our sex and love life – and is changing what it means to connect, relate and trust.

 

Futurist Mette Sillesen and Sexuality Expert Lucy Vittrup have joined forces to prepare you for the future of sex and it’s consequences on our how we relate to ourselves and each other, privately and professionally.

 

The talk gives you the big overview of the future of sex and points out the plausible consequences of technological intimacy* with regard to communication, connection, collaboration, well-being and joy between people on and off work. It also looks at the competencies that will be in demand in the future and question how technological intimacy influences them.

*Technological intimacy refers to sex, intimacy, love, romance and/or relationship with technology.

 

Key questions that will be addressed:

  • What does the future of sex look like? What does sex tech mean and cover? What are the trends and forecasts?
  • How will technological intimacy influence our human relations?
  • What will the technological intimacy mean for the future of work, communication, and collaboration between people?
  • What will be gained, and what will be lost?
  • What are the frightening scenarios, and what are the uplifting ones?
  • What can we do about it today?

What people say about the talk

Lucy and Mette have a humorous, informal way of covering a complex area that any individual, leader and organization has to look at now. They complement each other perfectly and give the audience an important space to reflect and interact. I highly recommed their talk to anyone with interest in the future!
- Michael Danni Sorensen, Head of New Markets, AquaTech 

 Hearing Mette and Lucy speak gave me the understanding that sexuality in the future is not only about sex in the bedroom, it is about how we will come to interact with each other in all walks of life. Their talk is thought-provoking, inspirational and eye opening.
- Simone Okholm, Executive Assistant, Group88 

 

 In a world changing faster than ever, I think toys, computers, and machines have come to stay in terms of our own and other peoples sexuality. Lucy and Mette lead the way into the future of our sexuality in a both professional, useful and touching way.
