Ep 131 – Tech Yourself

SexTech refers to the intersection of technology and sexuality, encompassing a range of innovations, products, and services that aim to enhance and explore human sexuality. It is a growing field that leverages advancements in technology to revolutionize various aspects of sexual experiences, education, health, and relationships.

Michael and Jon sit down with Kath Albury, Professor of Media & Communication at Swinburne University of Technology Melb, an Australian Research Council Future Fellow, and Associate Investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making.

Michael mentions an episode of Well, Well, Well, which discussed SexTech back in 2020

Yers, we talk about sex robots – but also the vast and expansive future of sex and technology, and ways tech can be used to better our sexual pleasure. We chat about misgivings of the wellness industry, the gendering of sex products, and our digital privacy when our sex lives are in the cloud.

for information on the research project ‘Digital sexual health: Apps and platforms for safety, enjoyment and well-being in LGBTQ+ communities’ visit https://bit.ly/digitalsexualhealth. If you live in Australia, are over 18, and are a member of the LGBTQ+ community who uses sextech, Kath and the team would love to hear from you. This project was approved by the Swinburne University Human Research Ethics Committee (#20226849-12109).

 

This episode was recorded on the lands of the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung peoples. We pay our respects to their elders, past, present and emerging, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
