The new erotic - beyond the flesh

What are the social consequences of technological developments in porn and sex industry? Sex robots, sex toys that allow you to have sex, touch each other remotely or even have sex together remotely. And 3d-porn. You no longer need a real person to have sex with, neither do you have to leave the house to actually feel someone else. What do these developments mean for intimacy, what are the consequences for how we treat each other, for human relationships? Recently US researchers warned that the availability of sex robots with artificial intelligence (AI) poses a growing psychological and moral threat to individuals and society.

In a series of 7 photos and 2 videos I let people think about these developments.

N.B the last 2 visuals are stills of videos. Because there is no upload option, I have added 2 stills. You can see them here and here
