Our world is advancing towards more realistic and immersive virtual reality, which will be able to mimic and improve your sexual experiences with your partner. For single people, we already have dating apps, where you can find a partner purely for casual sex or even a mannequin partner that can be ordered online.

Research related to sex technology are also being conducted at a fast pace and newer things are coming up to enhance your sexual experience by improving your sexual confidence and performance. Male enhancement pills like Orexis, formulated with proven herbal ingredients, is one advancement that allows penis enlargement and very strong and hard erections to improve sexual performance, says an expert at Men’s Health Digest.

Technological changes are occurring for good. So, why is that technology is taking a toll on modern relationships? Why is it that by turning to technology, you actually turn off your partner? Let’s try to understand.

More Smartphone Time

Checking your smartphone to see if you’ve received any messages or notifications from social media sites seems alright, till the time that you are told that people are getting addicted to it and doing it to the detriment of their real-life relationships. So, what is the reason for such addiction?

With smartphones becoming more powerful, where we can have a never-ending social life, grabbing new opportunities and completing all the work-related tasks at faster speeds, people are unable to resist the temptation of spending time on these devices, which they do not realize turns into addiction after a point in time, according to an article published by Business Insider in 2017.

Data published by Statista also revealed that in 2016, a smartphone user spent close to 5 hours per day surfing, which was twice the time spent in 2012. Experts say that this problem will only rise in the coming years, due to easy access to technology.

The touch feature of smartphones and tablets is so intriguing because a simple touch gives us the ability to connect with entertainment, news, friends and family. The problem is putting the device away and focusing on the people around you. This is taking its toll on relationships.

Less Time for Relationships

Smartphones have become a constant companion for most people, which they have started taking even to bed with them. The time they should be spending with their partner to rekindle their relationship is being wasted on messaging and social media, scrolling through Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook, or Netflix. Amidst all these virtual activities, we are unable to see that what we need the most is right there next to us in bed.

Smartphone addiction, an excuse to escape or avoid conversations, can actually take away the intimacy that you should be having with your partner. Many studies have reported a decline in couples’ sex life as a result of the smartphone.

According to an article in The Daily Mail, with excessive online time, physical connections between couples are getting diluted over time. After a point of time, people adjust to the situation and start expecting less. What is the result? They forget what real romance is. Things become worse when smartphone aids a partner in cheating, which can lead to jealousy, breaks-ups and even divorce.

The reality is that no matter how much technology advances and eases life, there is no replacement for physical touch and love. So, take time out to reignite that spark in your relationship. And if you are worried about sexual performance, you can always try male enhancement pills. However, always read the customer reviews and read about the ingredients, dosage and side-effects, even if you are trying all-natural products like Orexis.
