The Future Of Adult Novelties: Will Sex Toys Evolve To Replace Human Touch?

Sex toys are becoming more common than ever, conveniently located near condoms and lube at stores like CVS and Target. Vibrators are one of the most widely used sex toys and the industry’s annual revenue is estimated at $ 15 billion. But with the development of adult toy technology, how can we strike a balance between bedroom fun and dangerous alternatives to human emotions?

  1. Sex toys for her … and him
    The first electromechanical vibrator was launched in 1883 to treat “female hysteria.” Previously, doctors defined this disease as a mental disorder, attributable only to women, with symptoms that included tension, hallucinations, emotional outbursts and various sexual urges. Because women with female hysteria cannot relieve stress through vaginal intercourse, Dr. Joseph Mortimer Granville developed a vibrator to provide women with intimate clitoral stimulation at home.
    Many years later, female hysteria will be a thing of the past and vibrators will become what we know today. In 1954, the first electric vibrator was invented that did not require a user manual. In 2010, LifeStyles released their “A: muse Personal Pleasure Manager”, which has five different female vibration rhythms. The development of
    vibrators and other sex toys shows that people want to make their sexual experience more than just skin contact. In a 1996 study, researchers investigated the health and sexual behavior of a group of Swedish women between the ages of 18 and 74. A total of 19% of those surveyed said that they have used sex toys themselves, and 15% of those surveyed have used them with their partners. At the same time, among young women aged 25 to 34, the rate of sex toy use is even higher, at 30%.
    Since the 1990s, both men and women have used vibrators more frequently. Over the years, its easier access has led to the widespread use of
    . A 2009 study found that more than half of women and about half of men between the ages of 19 and 60 have used vibrators. A quarter of women have used one in the past month, compared with 10% of men. In addition, although vibrators are generally regarded as feminine products, researchers found that 17% of men use them when masturbating.
    The use of vibrators helps to increase awareness of sexual health, especially when it comes to sexual function, including desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, pain, and excess function. In the study, the Hum device even encouraged women to undergo gynecological examinations and genital self-examinations.
    male study participants also benefited from vibrators, using them to promote healthy behaviors, including testicular self-examination. The
    Vibrator’s Nest The
    vibrator is a safe way to achieve orgasm, but reliance on this stimulus may have an impact on the body and mind.
    Remember when Samantha introduced Charlotte to the urban sex of Rabbit Pearl? This episode shows Charlotte choosing her vibrator over dinner and lunch with friends.
    Dr. Justine Shuey, a sexologist and sex educator in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, told the Medical Journal that if vibrators become a daily habit, they can get in trouble.
    “Some people can get used to certain types of stimulation, which makes it harder to reach orgasm in other ways because they train to orgasm in a specific way,” Shuy said.
    The orgasm caused by sex toys is different from the warm and sensual contact of a real partner. The body can be so drawn to the high-speed simulation of the vibrator that it becomes insensitive to other, more traditional forms of arousal. However, what is addictive is not the sex toys, but the pleasure you get from them.
    Once you find a special technique, you don’t want to stop it. BOB, this “battery-powered boyfriend”, has become a real replacement.
    goes without saying, but relying solely on sex toys is not a good thing. Quick happiness cannot replace physical and emotional connection. Expanding our dependence on technology will not only destroy social ties of friendship, but will also damage our romantic relationships.
  2. Do not harm the good things.
    Adam Goodson, a sex expert at White Tiger Tantra in San Diego, California, takes a very extreme stance on sex toys and advises women not to use a vibrator because it can cause physical harm to the genitals.
    “The vibrator can cause serious nerve damage and numb the nerves and tissues in a woman’s vagina. This makes orgasm difficult or slower for women to reach. It also causes internal abrasions and knots in the tissues in women, “Goodson told the Medical Daily.
    Additionally, extra precautions should be taken when using sex toys because they are sold as novelty products and are not subject to the Food and Drug Administration. USA (FDA) The FDA only checks if they fall into the category of medical devices, such as therapeutic massagers and vibrators, otherwise most vibrators and other sex toys are not properly inspected.
    Although they might be supposed to do this, sex toy manufacturers do not always list what they put on items. Toy materials are very important and should be evaluated based on porosity (porosity or absorbency of the material) and chemical composition. For example, the more porous the material, the easier it is for bacteria to multiply and multiply. Phthalates are chemical plasticizers added to plastics (such as PVC) used in sex toys. They have been designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as possible human carcinogens and can cause nervous system Problems and reproductive problems.
    In sex life, there is always the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STI), especially when we use unsanitary sex toys. If one partner wears an item immediately after another partner, or if it is worn back and forth between anal sex and vaginal/anal sex without proper cleaning, it is possible to spread STI.
  3. The future of sex toys: a risky industry

Adam Goodson, a sexpert at White Tiger Tantra in San Diego, Calif., takes a rather extreme stance on sex toys, advising women not to use vibrators because of the physiological damage it can cause the genitals.

“Vibrators can cause severe nerve damage and can deaden the nerves and the tissues of a woman’s vagina. This makes sexual climax more difficult or requiring more time for the woman to climax. It also causes abrasions and knotted tissues inside of the women,” Goodson told Medical Daily .

Moreover, extra precaution should be taken when using sex toys because they’re sold as novelty items and are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA only examines them if they fall under the category of medical devices, such as therapeutic massagers and vibrators. Otherwise, the majority of vibrators and other sex toys go without proper inspection.

Though they probably should, sex toy manufacturers don’t always list what they put in their items. The materials in the toy are of importance and should be evaluated based on porosity (how porous or absorbent the material is) and chemical composition. For example, the more porous a material is, the more susceptible it is for bacteria to thrive and reproduce. Phthalates, a class of chemical plasticizers added to the plastic used in sex toys, like PVC, have been designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as possible human carcinogens, and lead to neurological and reproductive issues.

With sex, there’s always the risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs), especially if we’re using unhygienic sex toys. It’s possible to transmit an STI if either one partner uses an item right after the other, or if it’s being used back and forth between anal and vaginal/anal sex without proper cleaning.

4.The Future Of Sex Toys: Risky Business

Despite the lack of FDA regulations and possible health risks, sex toys are evolving to becoming more life-sized and interactive. In a project called “Realbotix,” creator Matt McMullen has attempted to develop animate, life-size sex dolls that can talk dirty to you. These dolls can be customized from their body type and skin, hair, and eye color, and more recently, custom-ordered toes. McMullen also plans to focus on artificial intelligence to develop a robotic head that can blink and open and close its mouth.

The idea of having sex with an inanimate object is an unconventional concept, but when companies like McMullen’s are selling silicone, life-sized dolls for between $5,000 and $10,000, a niche market is definitely interested. Plus, according to a recent poll, one in five people would actually have sex with a robot, if given the chance, regardless of its human characteristics.

Goodson believes to each their own, but he emphasizes that when two or more people come together and even climax together in a honest, loving, authentic way with sensuality, that’s where the most rewarding experiences of intimacy are made and felt.

“Having sexual behaviors with a doll or even a robot as I am sure is on its way, (but) will never replace the connection of two spirits climaxing together,” he said.

Sex toys have evolved from simplistic gadgets of pleasure to hi-tech, life-like devices that for many, have unknowingly desensitized the human touch, and distorted the essence of sex. This can soon turn into a 50 shades of gray scenario when sex toys become the integral part, and not just a component of sex. This can threaten human-to-human intimate relationships, and potentially replace them with inanimate objects.

Balance is key, especially when it comes to sex.

“Intimacy is so much more than just sex. People need emotional connections as well as physical stimulation,” said Shuey.
