I'm having a serious blast writing for the great folks at FutureOfSex- and a brand new post of mine just went live!
Check out The Sexual Future of 2015: What Sci-Fi Movies and Books Got Wrong… and Right!
It was a fun to write and (hopefully) just as fun to read!
Science fiction has never really strived to be prophetic. Mostly the genre has used speculation to draw attention to social issues of the day; a funhouse mirror held up to mankind.
And when it has tried to gaze into a crystal ball, sci-fi’s track record is more than a bit lacking—to be polite.
Especially in regards to the future of sexuality.
Now that we are actually living in 2015—and with 2016 right around the corner—it’s fun to look at some notable books and films that tried to envision what sex would be like in the future. In other words, right this very minute.
A lot of things turned out to be flat out wrong. But what’s even more intriguing—and even more than a bit chilling—is what they actually may have gotten right.
If not this year but very, very soon.
