In a press statement, Ukonwa Ojo head of global brand equity at Durex said with technology playing such a pivotal role in personal lives and relationships, the brand set out to explore how it could be utilised in a positive way to enhance sex lives.
“In doing so we discovered the most effective answer was the simplest. After consulting countless experts academic research and endless qualitative interviews the solution turned out to be a simple one – we should disconnect to reconnect. We hope it will help to reconnect couples that have let technology compromise their connection with each other.”
Susie Lee the app entrepreneur and CEO of Siren Mobile states “Of course technology can never really replace human interaction. True chemistry comes from intimacy. So while we need technology – it has enhanced our lives enabling us to reconnect with old friends reach wider social groups and meet new people – we need to recognize the times and places that social networking doesn’t enrich our experience. We really need to learn to focus on each other in the bedroom rather than on our smartphones or tablets.”
