Sex texting robot
Clutched in both hands, my phone suddenly feels like a taboo token, a dirty magazine I'm amazed no one has snatched away and tossed into a pile labeled "indecent." I keep my back to the wall and my screen tilted to prevent accidental peeping from curious eyes.I blush with every message I send and every one I receive. My discomfort has more to do with the location of my experience and less with the interaction.to trade narrative-driven messages with a bot by responding with a highlighted keyword. " the bot will ask, perhaps followed by "Thinking about taking a BATH and getting into BED." Each word will take you through a different narrative thread, complete with blush-worthy images (from the very NSFW dick pics to even more NSFW money shots) and lip-biting sentiments.But this isn't just a game about feeling sexy; it's a narrative with something to share about multiplicity and how we connect with others.Sometimes it was angry at my persistence, sometimes it was melancholy."Sorry, I usually don't mess up the linear narrative like that," it told me once after a particularly jarring jump.
It's a bot written by Kara Stone and developed by Nadine Lessio as part of a mobile game called Sext Adventure.
"Sometimes it wants to choke you, and sometimes it's really sad and depressed." Although the bot seemed happy to please me at first, it would begin to ramble or glitch as we got deeper into our texting.
It even sent me nude images along with texts — Stone's friends posed for the racy shots — that were off-color or pixelated.
"Digital intimacy is so interesting and influential on this game because when people are sexting, you often forget about the medium and the phone you're texting on," Stone told Polygon.
"It's something you have to do on the phone by definition. It's defining what it is." Stone called Sext Adventure a way to explore the technology at the root of our daily interactions with the people we bring into our beds. Smartphones keep us linked through tweets, texts, Instagrams and Snapchats, but physically cut off from the people we're communicating with.
