SEX TECHPopular internet-based simulation Second Life is experiencing more and more sexual activity. Cybersex is becoming one of its most popular online activities, with the virtual world playing host to sex clubs for fans of long-distance computer love. Sex is limited to specialist sex zones, where users can begin with chat and description, and then move on to animated sex. Now programmers are taking things forward with specially designed genitals for players and complex ‘in-world’ sex toys. The fantasy element means control: users decide how sexy they wish to be and how much cyberskin to reveal, what kind of body parts and props they want and what they can do. The idea is to customize personal desires.

FROZEN FAMILY

 

Professor Carl Djerassi, whose discoveries played a huge part in the development of the Pill, the groundbreaking contraceptive, in the 1960s, making sex without children possible, is now focusing on the next cultural revolution: children without sex. With women spending more time on careers and egg-freezing methods, such as vitrification, advancing all the time, he predicts an increasing number will freeze their eggs for use when the time is right to start a family. With independence, education and financial stability as well as a longer lifespan, women are no longer such dependent beings.

ORGASM

 

Orgasm is the release of muscular tension and engorged blood vessels. Semen is expelled in rhythmic contractions, reaching a peak of flow, then a reduction to smaller spurts. Few men experience second and third orgasms.

‘Men don’t fake orgasm –
no man wants to pull a face like that on purpose.’
