Will we stop having sex?

Sex is one of our primary biological urges. We engage in it for procreation and pleasure. But recent technological advances are changing the way we have sex.

From test tube babies to gene editing, it is becoming possible to have children artificially who will be healthier than those conceived naturally.

The rise of pornography, coupled with increased social media usage, has already seen less physical interaction among younger generations – creating a barrier between the real world and the virtual space they are entangled with.

And for those looking for a more physical sexual gratification, robots are being increasingly developed to satisfy sexual fantasies as opposed to a real-life partner.

With all these changes to our society the question is – will we stop having sex as we know it?
