Will genetics progress make sex bygone?

According to Hank Greely, the director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Law and Biosciences, human reproduction may become automated faster than you realize.
Greely believes that within three decades, people will no longer have sex as a way to reproduce, and instead rely on genetically edited embryos grown from skin-derived stem cells, not the combination of an egg or sperm, The Independent reported.

According to Greely, this process ensures that the embryo is free from any devastating genetic diseases, and would also be cheaper in the long run because of the money it would save in healthcare over the years. What’s more, Greely predicts that couples would be able to choose other genetic traits in their children, such as physical features and intelligence.

“I don’t think we’re going to be able to say this embryo will get a 1550 on its two-part SAT,” Greely said this week at Aspen Ideas Festival, Quartz reported, “But, this embryo has a 60% chance of being in the top half, this embryo has a 13% chance of being in the top 10%—I think that’s really possible.”

This may sound far-fetched, but the gap between sex and procreation has been widening for the past 50 years thanks to the rise of fertility drugs, embroynic genetic testing, artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Over the last ten years in the UK, egg freezing has increased tenfold, from just under 230 cycles in 2009 to almost 2,400 cycles in 2019. IVF birth rates in 2019 were three times higher than in 1991, and the use of egg and sperm donors has risen, too. “Now, maybe three or four per cent of the babies born in the developed world are conceived in some manner other than sexual intercourse, and I think in the future that percentage will go up,” Greely adds.

When scientists figure out how to make this work for humans, infertile and queer couples could have biological babies without needing to go through costly and risky procedures like IVF, donors or surrogates. Single people, meanwhile, could produce ‘uni babies’, using both eggs and sperm grown from their cells.

The idea may sound far-out, but according to Quartz, it already happens on a much smaller and limited scale as a way to prevent certain diseases. Although extremely expensive at the moment, advances in stem cell technology will help to drive down the cost. In addition, the amount that the government would save on not having to take care of sick babies would also make this more cost-efficient.
As many of you may worry, this is not the end of sex because recreational sex will always be with us, but it’s the end of sex as a way of procreating.
It will not be the complete end. People will still get pregnant the old-fashioned way, maybe for religious reasons, for philosophical reasons, for romantic reasons or maybe because they are teenagers and the back seat of the car is there.

“Eugenics is a slippery word; it means many things to different people. To some, it’s state-enforced reproductive control. To some, what we had was state-enforced sterilization. To some, it’s any kind of reproductive choice, but those are different things. For me, I think coercion is much more important than the issues of selection. The concern about the state or the insurance company or someone else, forcing you to pick particular babies, worries me a lot more than having parents make choices, though that raises its own set of questions.” Greely said.

AloneNotLonely: 90% bonus credits with LiveJasmin to combat loneliness on Valentine’s day

Premium adult streaming platform LiveJasmin pledges to combat loneliness and
celebrate singles’ well-being, with technology marking a new frontier of both sexual and
emotional fulfilment.


For too long, being single on Valentine’s Day carried a social stigma. However, millions
choose independence, with nearly half of young adults globally and 2.1 billion worldwide
currently uncommitted.

In 2024, 72% of millennials choose singleness. Technology helps to dispel loneliness,
with online adult platforms serving beyond mere sexual needs. A recent research conducted by the Kinsey Institute and LiveJasmin found:

85% of users feel cam models help to fulfil their emotional needs and
88% of those interviewed come to the platform for much more than just sexual
motivations


Many turn to streaming to alleviate anxiety, stress, and build connections, benefiting
mental health.
Society’s shift is evident:

87% of singles want to be able to do whatever they want
89% of singles choose not to date because they believe they aren’t good at flirting
75% of singles say they are too picky

Modern emotions demand modern connections. Technology offers convenience and
satisfaction, embraced by singles, who celebrate their independence on streaming sites
with just a click.

LiveJasmin’s Model Caroline shares her Valentine’s Day camming experiences, fostering
intimacy and inclusivity:

‘Valentine’s Day is always a busy time. I wear red, bring little items along with me to
celebrate with my users, and am always well prepared. I make everyone feel special,
loved, and appreciated. We might have a glass of wine and play some romantic music,
but in any instance I enjoy wonderful, intimate moments with lots of singles – and even
some couples who are looking to spice up their Valentine’s Day celebrations. No matter
what, I’m here to help and make sure no one feels alone – or dissatisfied – on Valentine’s
Day’
.

In their effort to combat loneliness and stigma, LiveJasmin offers 90% bonus credits,
