          Abstract

          This paper peers into sexual practices articulated between human bodies and digital connected devices in order to produce a critical perspective on techno-sexual practices. Are sexual pleasure production technologies exhausted by their marketed functionalities? By considering Gilbert Simondon’s technicity concept and the genesis of technical objects, I’ll answer this question negatively. My hypothesis is that technologies for sexual pleasure production exceed the functionalities attributed by their marketing because they are part of a broader process of technological becoming. I’ll state that sex toys, marketed as digital or smart technologies, belong to what I will later call technical sensibility, which is at the core of a libidinal approach to processes of technological production.
