Since I’ve started tracking the story of sexual computing I’ve received many emails and countless tweets stating that while developers and engineers may be working on sexbots and other sexual technologies, no “normal” person would ever use such tech in their sex life. While this survey was conducted with a fairly large sampling size of 1,100 people, it did not specifically ask respondents what they were using their smartphones for while having sex.
Nearly 20 percent of young adult smartphone owners in the U. between the ages of 18 and 34 use their smartphones during sex, and nearly 1 in ten U. Theoretically the smartphone use could have been for anything from checking texts, to taking pictures and recording videos, to referencing Kama Sutra guides.
Regardless, it does demonstrate a willingness among people–especially youth–to allow technology into their most intimate moments.
