For our Future of Sex campaign, we took a temperate check on young people’s shifting relationship to sex, while also examining how it might develop over the next few years. Through expert interviews and original reporting, we explored the vast potential of VR dating, boundary-breaking sex tech, and the new frontiers for contraception and procreation. There were also essays and analysis from esteemed cultural commentators, with subjects ranging from the death of obscenity, creative taboos, and the uncertain future of heterosexuality.
On top of all of this, we also invited our readers to get involved, conducting a new Dazed Sex Survey, following on from our last one conducted eight years ago in 2008. The results – drawn from nearly 5000 responses – were published at the end of the season.
