Kurious Talkk: The Future of Sex Tech

Kurious Kittens Sex Tech Panel

Join KK founder Emma Sayle and British journalist and author Stephanie Theobald who just launched her new book Sex Drive as they host an all-female panel with some of the world’s leading women in the sextech and AI (artificial intelligence) world. Professor Kate Devlin, Sarah Porter and one of the UK’s most high profile TV psychologists Emma Kenny.

We live in a digital age where in less than 100 years our whole world and how it operates will become controlled by a digital world. Yet, it always has been and always will be controlled by sex too. From prostitution being the oldest profession to porn being the most searched subject online, our desires and sexual needs have always been and will always be at the forefront of our minds. Where does this fit with the digital world and the future of sex? Should we be worried or will our old school animal sexual instincts triumph over any sex robots/sexual A.I or any other sextech on the horizon?

Please join us for what will definitely be an intelligent, controversial and lively discussion.
