NY Times Profiles 'Technosexual' Pleasure Data Tracking Trend

NEW YORK — The New York Times published an article Friday by Styles section dating columnist Gina Cherelus, about pleasure products for “those who want to take a data-driven approach to their pleasure.”

The piece features sex tech products such as Anna Lee and Liz Klinger’s Lioness Smart Vibrator; Perifit, described as “a Kegel exercise device that allows users to connect to an app where they can play Kegel games to strengthen their pelvic floor and track their contractions”; and the brand Wujj, “a sex tech company whose devices also use sensors to measure and improve orgasms.”

“Whether it’s obsessively collecting step counts or waiting for Spotify to reveal our musical tastes each year, we may be growing more accustomed to tracking every aspect of our lives through technology,” Cherelus writes. “The option to track female orgasms at home introduces the possibility of hacking what some scientists have treated as an enigma. Some people use the tracking technology to combat sexual changes that can come with menopause or polycystic ovary syndrome, for example. Others say they want the data to see how certain foods or medications may affect their arousal — and they’re thinking about how to optimize their orgasms with smart, Bluetooth-enabled sex toys they hope will help them better understand their bodies.”

Cherelus also interviews several users and sexperts, coining the term “technosexual” to refer to enthusiasts of such data-tracking products.

“I am very much an advocate of sex education,” one interviewee tells Cherelus, “and I think even adults are still learning about their bodies and learning about self-pleasure.”
