Nowadays, thanks to app control, it is possible to control the sex toy of a partner across continents
At the time, the industry was still very sceptical about this and did not believe that it would prevail. Today it makes many partners – especially in long-distance relationships – very happy.
A technology that continues to advance is called Teledildonics. These are products that interact with each other and can react to each other.
The sex toy industry has noticed the societal trend towards gender fluidity and is addressing the issue.
These sex toys stimulate different areas of the body and make it possible that one does not have to identify with any gender.
Genderless sex toys come in a wide variety of forms, mostly made of soft, flexible silicone and multifunctional.
Sensors make this possible. One partner can be at home with a vibrator. The movements of the device are then sent via WLAN to the coupled toy of the other partner.
Sexual mindfulness & meditation
Mindful sex is about taking it slow, the pleasure and all sensations are consciously perceived and felt.
The trend of ‘conscious living’ will therefore also be evident in our sex lives. Terms like ‘body journey’ or ‘body scan’ are well known from yoga and meditation. It’s about ‘being sex’ instead of ‘having sex’.
What makes mindful sex different, according to We-Vibe is that is doesn’t ‘just happen,’ but requires partners to take their time.
Try ‘booking an appointment’ with your partner for several hours.

Virtual reality and artificial intelligence
Following the Virtual Reality boom of recent years, virtual reality has been used in livestream VR sex cams, 360° porn experiences, binaural sound systems and integrative sex toys.
Over the next ten years, the full potential of 3D printers for the sex industry will also unfold.
New technologies will give sex dolls and robots a new image and make them accessible to the masses. They will be equipped with artificial intelligence and thanks to cloud and hard disk their owners will be able to have conversations with them.
The robots will be able to remember their owners’ loves, hobbies and interests. Electrochips, which are installed under the silicone, ensure that the robots can also react to touches.
More toys for men
The forecast says that the global sex toy market will grow from $26.5 billion (£20bn) in 2019 to $34.8 billion (£26.2bn) in 2023, with a strong focus on men.
In the past, there has been a strong focus on the development of sex toys for women. The so-called ‘Orgasm Gap’ has caused a sensation and interest in society, so that topics related to female stimulation have become a lifestyle topic.
The manufacturer added that women’s toys tended to be ‘high quality, aesthetic and sophisticated products,’ whereas there was still some room for improvement in the men’s market.
