A new study finds that some women in Britain (16% of those surveyed) would like to have sex in virtual reality.

The online survey was conducted via, a fertility tracking app that helps prevent, plan, and monitor pregnancies.

It asked 2,618 women between the ages of 17 and 50 about the relationships between advancing technologies and their private sex lives.

40% of those surveyed agreed that future technology would make sex more fun and enjoyable. A further 5% revealed that they would rather give up sex than access to social media.

15% admitted that they currently use apps to help find sexual satisfaction whilst 20% said they would like to use social media for sexual arousal.

“Brits love tech and are open minded about its use when it comes to sex,” says Dr Elina Berglund, CTO and co-founder of NaturalCycles, and a top physicist who was part of the Nobel Prize-winning team that the discovered the Higgs boson particle.

“Future technologies, like advanced wearable tech, virtual reality, intelligent sex toys and artificial skin, are becoming part of our everyday lives and redefining the way we enjoy sex.”

Indeed, as the survey also shows, a majority of the participants (63%) admitted that they use, or would like to use sex toys.

9% have already taken the technological leap, revealing that they had used sex toys connected to their phone.

The results of this survey certainly reflect the truth in Dr Berglund’s words. It seems that British women are open minded about accessing and trying new technologies aimed at improving sexual satisfaction.

It also demonstrates that advancing technologies are becoming an even more integral part of our intimate, social lives.
