With sex toys and wearable tech big sellers in 2015 (forecast to be up 30 per cent and 173 per cent, re­spec­tively), it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore Ap­ple joined the party. Any­one with a beta ver­sion of IOS 9 may al­ready be reap­ing the re­wards, with the Health app’s new Sex­ual Ac­tiv­ity tracker. It not only records when you have sex, and if pro­tec­tion was used, but you can even sync it to when your part­ner’s ovu­lat­ing. A gim­mick? Ex­perts think not. “Many cou­ples have dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives on how of­ten they have sex – this shows what’s ac­tu­ally hap­pen­ing,” says clin­i­cal sexologist Vanessa Thompson. “It could also ac­cu­rately track erec­tile dys­func­tion and pre­ma­ture ejac­u­la­tion, is­sues that feel like they’re hap­pen­ing a lot, but may not be.” Other track­ers in de­vel­op­ment in­clude ‘Lovely’ (pic­tured), a cock-ring-shaped gad­get that records thrusts, calo­ries burned, and G-force. Span­ish com­pany Geek­s­phone is also work­ing on a pre­mium smart­watch, the ‘Geeks!me’, which comes with an in-built sex tracker. The bad news is you’ll have to wait un­til next year to fnd out ex­actly how well you’re do­ing in bed. The good? There’s plenty of time to prac­tise.
