If you ask Suki and Brian Dunham, the married founders of the sex toy company Oh Mi Bod, involving technology in our sex lives can be a glorious game-changer for anyone — the single, the newly smitten, the monogamous, the polyamorous, the long-distance lovebirds.
Which is why these sorts of apps and gadgets are increasingly mainstream, Suki Dunham said, and no longer just for experimental adventurers.
(Think of those “basic pleasure model” replicants from “Blade Runner,” only less menacing.) What is the line between augmenting human connection with technology, and replacing it altogether?
