Last updated September 5, 2018

The High Notes: Issue #11

Virtual Reality; Bi Visibility day; libido; birthday orgy; sexy algorithms.

This week, I sat down for dinner (and copious amounts of wine) with just over a dozen London women who work in or write about sextech. To introduce ourselves and get the conversation flowing, we asked them:

A standout winner was Virtual Reality. Sex is certainly a big driver of this tech — with over 38% of headsets reportedly being bought by people who want adult entertainment. So I decided to drop a few VR articles in this Issue.
