"You're Totally Going Have Sex In Self-Driving Cars, Scientists Predict"
by Melanie Ehrenkranz

If humans are dependable for anything, it’s discovering new ways to get horny over new tech. And according to a new report, self-driving will really get people riled up.

Researchers in the United Kingdom just released a paper in the in the journal Annals of Tourism Research that details how self-driving cars may affect urban tourism. But if you scroll past all the boring stuff, you’ll find a section on how autonomous vehicles are poised to impact both sex work and sex in general.

“One of the starting points was that AVs will provide new forms of competition for hotels and restaurants. People will be sleeping in their vehicles, which has implications for roadside hotels. And people may be eating in vehicles that function as restaurant pods,” Scott Cohen, deputy director of research of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey in the U.K., who led the study, told Fast Company. “That led us to think, besides sleeping, what other things will people do in cars when free from the task of driving? And you can see that in the long association of automobiles and sex that’s represented in just about every coming-of-age movie. It’s not a big leap.”

The researchers note in the paper that this might look like “hotels-by-the-hour” being replaced by self-driving cars. “Such private CAVs [connected and autonomous vehicles] may also be put to commercial use, as it is just a small leap to imagine Amsterdam’s Red Light District ‘on the move,’” the researchers wrote in the paper.

“Particularly in cities where the governance is in place, where prostitution is legal, and regulations allow AVs to develop fast and be on roads quickly, we could see this come together rapidly,” Cohen told Fast Company. “Europe is one of those places. It’s not impossible or that far-fetched to imagine the red light district on the move.

Although before we all get excited, 

 

I thought this was one of the more sensible things I've heard regarding self drive  (and its from arguably the leading company)

 

"Waymo CEO: Autonomous cars won't ever be able to drive in all conditions, And it will be decades before self-driving cars are all over the roads, John Krafcik says."

So long as it still has a stick and a knob - why not? laughing

 

Whole new meaning for "Where the rubber meets the road"?





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.
