The Arse Elektronika Festival brings sex and technology together to San Francisco now through Sunday (Oct. 4) for workshops and discussions about the past, present, and future of fornication.
Organizer Johannes Grenzfurthner says sex and porn have been the driving forces of technology for centuries.
In fact, the first thing printing press creator Johannes Gutenberg printed after the Bible was literary erotica.
This year, the event will focus on genetic engineering, biotechnology, and body modification in relation to sex with numerous presentations.
At one of the workshops, attendees can discuss sexual devices with experts and build their own toy out of household appliances.
Theyre also invited to conferences on zombie sex, the science behind tantric sex, getting busy with robots, and building a joydick a wearable sex device that controls video game play through masturbation.
