UK’s Leading Sextech Startups to Watch out in 2023
In this digital era we live in, the technological steps taken every day are about making an easier and happier life in many ways. In this context, initiatives and innovations have emerged to improve sexual experiences, sexual understanding and awareness.
What does Sextech mean?
When people think of sex technology, it reminds us of robots and sci-fi movies, but sex technology goes far beyond that. Sextech encompasses more than enhancing sexual experiences and pleasure. It is about educating the community about sexual health, medicine, sexual care, sexual orientation, sexual crimes, assault reporting, relationships and orgasms and the importance of their well-being.
What is Sextech for?
Given the fact that talking about sex, sexual health and well-being are still taboo – especially for women and the LGBTQ+ communities – improvements in the industry are paving the way to break down barriers and move the discussion to a safer and more open space. Sextech helps to dispel the socially prevailing feelings of shame, embarrassment and guilt about sex, making it a topic for people to feel more comfortable and educated to discuss.
Sextech is an important industry in health and well-being, in terms of enjoying sexual experiences, raising awareness about sexual issues, and offering support for traumatic (harassment, rape, etc.) experiences. Innovation and technology are helping to positively influence how we think and act about sex.
