Abstract

There are probably few associations less likely in our minds than computers and sexuality. In fact, the link between computers and sexuality in our culture has not only been deemed improbable, but, explicitly negative. The mechanization that arose with the industrial revolution has been a critical focus of two centuries of art and literature that have sought to protect the realm of affect and sensuality from the ultimate threat of the microchip. A 1970s horror film (Cammell, 1977) even had Julie Christie being impregnated by a not very user-friendly mainframe.
