Ask A Genius 13 – The Future of Sex 1
Scott Douglas Jacobsen and Rick Rosner
November 5, 2016
Scott: You wrote about the end of sex. What about the Future of Sex?
Rick: Sex is a primary drive. We evolved to want to keep reproducing and having kids. Those that survive have those drives to reproduce and survive. Our lineage goes back probably a billion years.
Sex is often contrary to individual interests. If we want to survive for as long as possible or maximize our odds of survival as individual organisms, sex goes against that. Sex is a perverse drive. In that, it works against us.
As we move into the future, many people will try to control it once that becomes possible to make it a more tractable drive. One that doesn’t have to work against us. It doesn’t have to make us misbehave, where we hear every year powerful people being brought low by their sex drives.
Old guys who married young women who are after their money and the former or the rest of the family gets screwed over. Once we have the power to control that, a lot of people will control it.
