This book looks at how sexuality is framed in enhancement scenarios and how descriptions of the resulting posthuman future are informed by mythological, historical and literary paradigms. It examines the glorious sex life we will allegedly enjoy due to greater control of our emotions, improved capacity for pleasure, and availability of sex robots.

"Hauskeller's new volume focuses on the posthumanist use-current and prospective-of technologies to improve or otherwise control love life. ... the book brings up issues whose importance to the immediate present signal how pivotal are the more perennial underlying philosophical problems. ... Readers with an interest in the health of the present world should read this very accessible book. Everyone from philosophers to industrialists and average readers could benefit." (Lantz Fleming Miller, Science and Engineering Ethics, Vol. 22, 2016)
