This article is a few months old but I wanted to highlight it because it illustrates the state of affairs when it comes to how technology is replacing human experience. Read the full story: hardwired for love here.

Technology can never replace human experience because it is a simulation of the real world. However, if you consider how real dreams feel when you’re dreaming, maybe you will wake up from the dream and be thankful it was only a dream. The experience of connecting with another human being is only enhanced by technology when you are physically in different locations.

This reminds me you may want to look at the virtual sex scene from the movie Demolition Man with Sandra Bullock and Sylvester Stallone.
