It was a lot of fun to revisit one of my favourite books—through a different lens for Future of Sex! When I read Brave New World in high school, I do not recall sex being such a significant focus of our studies. This isn’t really surprising, we delved much more into the ideas around soma than we did The Feelies. However, the thought of a moviegoing experience that included physical sensation seems particularly prescient considering our current more to 4D, VR and beyond.
This was a hard one to write. Anger, is a challenging subject to deal with in relationships, sexual or otherwise. This month’s addition to the Seven Deadly Sex Sins series on Cara Sutra explores sexual wrath. But is it possible to turn wrath into a possible? Can releasing angry energy be turned into something that compliments sex?

The craving for more and better is pretty ingrained in our world—even our sex lives. This month’s addition to the Seven Deadly Sex Sins series on Cara Sutra explores sexual envy. Do you crave the people you see other folks having fun with? Does the thought of your lover’s past partners drive you to distraction?

I’m not going to say this is a big problem, but it certainly posed a challenge! What do you do when technology changes a fundamental pattern of routine? What do you do when you don’t know what hand to masturbate with?
Check out this month’s installment of The Seven Deadly Sex Sins on Cara Sutra! This month we explore the concepts of being the one who takes and takes without giving in bed, as well as exploring what is or isn’t greedy in different relationship dynamics.
Sex products are finally catching up to demand and evolving at the same time! In my latest article for Future of Sex, I speculate on sex devices that could be gel and could have microscopic robots in them! What might this mean for long-distance lovers and other folks across the sexual spectrum?
Check out this month’s installment of The Seven Deadly Sex Sins on Cara Sutra! This month we explore the concept of “letting yourself go” and complacency in emotional and sexual relationships.
I am delighted to be starting the new year with a brand new series of articles on Cara Sutra exploring the Seven Deadly Sins—of Sex! Each month I’ll apply some sexual context to each of the traditional Seven Sins, with each post concluding with a related question for further discussion.
I think we’re going to be hearing a lot about sex robots in the near future. And I’m moderately delighted because Mr. Roboto is one of my favourite songs, ever. While Margaret Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last does not entirely focussed on sexy circuitry-based sweeties, their inclusion brings a fun element to a tale that already incorporates some ditzy with dystopia.

This month we’ve moved on to the third in my series on sex and our five senses: smell.
Smell is a divisive sense—especially when it comes to sex. Some people have very strong reactions to different scents and can be either immediately turned on or completely turned off at the faintest whiff. And what we do find scentually appealing greatly varies among different people.
