Last updated September 5, 2018

The High Notes: Issue #14

Sex & robots conf; pregnancy; born kinky?; Westworld; ecosexuality.

STACCATO — short and sharp, quick reads

– Need some more erotic writing in your life? Kinkly has published their yearly Top 100 sex bloggers.

– Goldsmiths, University of London is hosting the next Love & Sex with Robots conference this December, including a sextech hackathon.

A PIACERE — enjoy at your pleasure

– Here’s a great article discussing desire & masturbation during pregnancy. Hint: it’s safe (and encouraged!).

– It seems a bizarrely simple question, but why does sex feel good? Neuroscientists have found that orgasms enhance brain activity, leading to an altered state of consciousness & a trance-like effect.

Are we born kinky, or does life experience lead us down a particular path when it comes to sex?

ADAGIO — longer reads, dive a little deeper

– How long before we can build Westworld robots for real? A little off topic — but really interesting for anyone interested in the future of sex robots.

– Heard of ecosexuality? Neither had we. But with an estimated 100,000 people now considering themselves as ecosexual, Vice takes a look at this sexual identity.
