What happens to our sexuality when we are surrounded by digital offers and robotics? The porn industry was quick to embrace the new digital technology, taking full use of its possibilities. With VR and social networks, our interaction has shifted from intimate to digital. In «What if / Hva om» at the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, we present Bastiaan Buijs’s design project Satyr.  The dutch designer Bastiaan Buijs has designed a sex toy with a bright pink torso that can be mounted like a vaulting horse. The designer wanted to combat the image of “a sad lonely man with a blow-up doll”, by creating an object that users would be happy to openly display in their homes.
