How COVID has changed our sex lives, but tech will save it

COVID has turned our worlds upside down. Every aspect of our lives has been impacted, including sex. In more obvious ways, it's affected our relationships, our boundaries and our sex lives. However, the pandemic and the lockdown that has ensued has also created an opportunity for the world of sex tech to blossom like never before. I'll walk you through the world of sex tech, the problems it's solving and stigmas it's breaking down, discuss how COVID has changed things (mostly for the better!) and highlight the ongoing challenges that the industry faces. Sexuality is such a fundamental aspect of our lives, yet there is still so much shame & taboo associated with it. I want to open up the conversation around sex and highlight the amazing innovations (many of which are female-founded!) happening in this space.
