Pornography has been called technology's "quiet pioneer," but it isn't just sex that's changing tech.

While networks like Facebook and Twitter have changed the way we interact socially, new technologies have also changed the way we engage sexually.

We've identified seven tech-driven trends that have affected sex in this digital age--from sex toys to online dating, pornography to new ways of engaging in (cyber) sexual acts.

New Ways To Consume Pornography

The Internet is both an information and pornography super highway. By some metrics, some 12% of all sites on the web are pornographic.

Adult entertainment providers like Playboy have repeatedly leveraged new tech to their advantage. In 1982, to keep pace with demand, the company launched Playboy TV, and in 1989 the magazine became the first men's publication with a Braille edition. For its June 2010 issue, Playboy even featured a 3D centerfold. "What would people most like to see in 3D?" asked Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "Probably a naked lady." Porn is also becoming more "graphic" than ever before: first came HD TV, with its high resolution images, and now, as 3D TV gains traction, adult entertainment companies are beginning to venture into 3D porn.
