Due to the outbreak of
COVID-19, Raspberry Dream Labs (RDL) is taking their chain of events under the
name of ‘UNSENSORED talks’ into virtual reality (VR). The debuting event is the
tech panel themed “Sex & Blockchain: Are We Safe?” taking place in
AltspaceVR on April 23rd.
Blockchains technology is
currently revolutionising many aspects of human existence. What about the sex
industry? It can certainly impact the ways sex workers get paid, record consent
between partners, document and report sexual harassment, but what happens when
it comes to the actual cybersex intercourse? By design, blockchain is “an open,
distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently
and in a verifiable and permanent way”. How anonymous is our sex history on the
blockchain? Are we protected as we think we are? Or maybe it doesn’t matter
that much, as the less we hide – the less we fear?
This event will feature a
panel of experts discussing the pros and cons of the blockchain technology to
revolutionize sex & sex tech industries. The discussion will focus on the
different aspect of technology implications, including cryptocurrency & sex
work, communication platforms, potential threats, issues of consent & smart
contracts, privacy on blockchain, the security of peer-to-peer verification,
the effect on intimate relationships & self-identity, the human need for
privacy, and the future of blockchain, sex tech & cybersecurity.
Panel experts include Alison Falk, SX
Batuhan Bintas, and Lori Beth Bisbey. Panel hosted by Angelina Aleksandrovich.
The audience can attend
the event using HTC Vive; Oculus Rift, Go, and Quest; Samsung GearVR; Windows
Mixed Reality; and 2D Mode on PC.
This event is a part of the “UNSENSORED series”- a project
designed to grow community, brand and subject awareness by building strong
emotional connections with our audience through multiple interactive
touchpoints. “UNSENSORED series” is unraveling how multi-sensory technologies
are re-defining and revolutionizing sexual experiences, engaging people in the
sensory exploration, increasing and improving sexual wellbeing through the
series of talks, workshops & parties. We are building a future-orientated
community of like-minded individuals and creating a better understanding of
what a sexual experience means for humans, aside from reproduction.
