The 7 p.m. Wednesday discussion, titled “Sex, Relationships and Technology,” addresses sex robots, online dating and how technology is impacting romantic relationships.Kris Gowen, a sexuality educator and co-founder of the sex education consulting group Beyond the Talk, will lead the event. Gowen is the author of “Sexual Decisions: The Ultimate Teen Guide.”Gowen said the majority of her discussion will focus on the psychology around online dating decision-making, as well as the evolving technology of sex robots.“People are advancing robot technology in all sorts of domains, and whether people choose to use it or not in a sexual way is up to them,” Gowen said.“It’s not a matter of ‘is it here?’ or ‘will it be developed or not?’ ” she said. “It’s going to be developed, so it’s just a matter of, how are robots going to be integrated into our daily lives, whether they are in a sexual way or in other ways. This is how the future is unfolding, and it’s a good idea to just learn about it and have your own ideas and form opinions about how you’re going to use these technologies or not moving forward.”last_img read more
