Sexbots and Smart Condoms: Ludified Love in Digital Society

Alfie Bown

This talk argues that we are in the middle of what Jean-Francois Lyotard described as a ‘desirevolution’ – a fundamental transformation of what it means to be a desiring human subject. Digital technologies, with their tactics of ludification and gamification, are engineering the ‘love industries’ and transforming how we relate to lovers, each other and the objects of our desire, to suit the agendas of platform capitalism. Using a psychoanalytic and Marxist approach, the talk attempts to consider how desire is transforming and how we might try to interrupt these processes for a progressive political agenda
