Technology increasingly forms a part of our sex lives. New technologies have allowed for different forms of sexual engagement and expression, such as connecting remotely with an intimate partner, or syncing a sex toy with a game, kindle book, or VR experience. While there is an expanding body of research on the sexualised use of the internet, there is only limited research on the use of new smart sex products in in adults’ sexual lives.
La Trobe University researchers at the Australian Research Centre for Sex, Health and Society want to explore Australian adults’ engagement with, and perceptions around, this topic. To better understand the role that smart sex products play in Australia’s intimate and sexual lives they are looking to speak with people who have used a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or remote controlled smart sex toy. Participation involves either a zoom, phone or face-to-face interview with participants reimbursed for their time with a $50 gift voucher.
The findings of this research will be used to provide an informed basis for improving policy, regulatory and educational responses in this area.
If you would like to participate and are aged 18 years and older, living in Australia and have self-identified to use wi-fi or Bluetooth enabled smart sex products see the TechSex website for more information.
