International Congress on Love and Sex With Robots

Love and Sex with robot August 2023 virtual sextech conference

We have our fingers crossed that this Canadian Sextech conference will finally hit Montreal in 2024! The organizers hope it will, but no guarantees have been made yet.

Love and Sex with Robots (LSR) is an annual sex tech conference that delves into robotics, ethics, emerging technology, and human sexuality. The event offers presentations and panel discussions covering various aspects of technology’s role in human sexual behaviour, such as the development of sex robots, the ethical and social implications of their use, and the potential future of human-robot relationships.

Typically attended by researchers, industry professionals, and individuals with an interest in the intersection of sex and technology, Love and Sex with Robots has been hosted in different locations worldwide, including Canada and the UK. However, in-person versions of the conference have not returned since the pandemic made the event virtual.

The most recent International Congress on Love and Sex With Robots took place from August 28 to 30, 2023. The sextech conference was held virtually, in conjunction with the Reimagine Sexuality Conference, even though there were initial considerations to hold it in Montreal, Québec, Canada for the 8th edition.

Les 3 Sex Colloquium

The fifth colloguium of "sexuality and technologies" will take place in person and online on March 24, 2023.

The French-Canadian sex tech conference “Sexualités et technologies” is a French-speaking colloquium presented by the Montreal sexual health charity Les 3 Sex. There’s an English homepage for the sex tech conference, yet most content est écrit en Français.

For the fifth annual event held on March 24, 2023, they partnered with l’Ordre professionnel des sexologues du Québec.

For the second year in a row, they made the sex tech conference hybrid. Attendees had the choice of buying an in-person ticket for the Centre Phi in Montreal or buying a virtual one for streaming online.

Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) Annual ConferenceSociety for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) Conference

For its 65th year, the international sex tech conference organized by the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSS) took place in Vancouver from Nov. 3 to 6, 2022.

The aim of the SSS is “dedicated to advancing knowledge of sexuality and communicating scientifically based sexuality research and scholarship.” The event explored topics including sex work, pornography, and sex robots. It happened in person at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre with some sessions also streaming online.

The 2023 annual conference date is scheduled for Nov. 16 to 19 next year in New Orleans. However, Montreal hosted the sexuality conference in 2018, so it will likely return to Canada again in the future.
