Autonomous Cars May Lead to New Sex Habits

George Putic, VOA News
3 May 2016


New technologies are meant to make our lives easier, but they can often bring unintended consequences, such as identity theft and the loss of our private data.

And then there's this: Automotive expert Barrie Kirk, from the Canadian Automated Vehicle Centre of Excellence, said the use of autonomous cars may result in more sex while driving.

Kirk said that when cars become so smart that even the passive attention of the driver will not be required, at least during long stretches of highway driving, more people may feel the urge to lose themselves in a passionate way.

Of course, this is only a part of a bigger concern that people will overestimate the abilities of computers driving the car and engage in all kinds of distracting behavior.

Manufacturers of autonomous cars often emphasize that fully automated cars are still a long way off.

Until that time ... drive safely.
