Intellectual Orgasm could be viewed as the new digital impulse to procreate advanced memes and to spread our cognitive DNA. It is this new “Trans-Sapien” drive that urges us to create more complex intellectual foreplay. We send pictures, texts and tweets of intellectual enlightenment.
The digital universe is not a passive place. We are constantly touching, pinching and rubbing our digital devices into submission, coaxing them into giving us the reward we desire. You send out an idea, theory, or work of art and in return you receive a “like”, a mention or re-Tweet.
Welcome to your daily intellectual orgy. Your amygdala is primed and you are ready for a micro shot of intellectually inspired oxytocin.
These little rewards create the new intellectual orgasm. I have these digital orgasms at least 100 times a day or more. My lover is usually a random stranger. They seduce me with pictures of far off lands and exotic foods, new images of the universe never before recorded, or new revelations from the field of science and technology. In return, I send out little temptations of techno-philosophy and futuristic observations. I have an intellectual orgasm when someone revels to me that I have “opened their mind” or given them “the courage to be curious again.”
This new digital impulse is driving humanity deeper into the digital-psychosexual universe. We scour our social networks and news feeds for political information, tech news, and breaking futuristic science information. We post Instagram photos and refresh the page waiting for someone to get us off. Sure, the old flesh impulse still exists and online porn has reached an implosive state of saturation, but the new digital reward drive appears to be on the high road. The largest sex organ on the planet is now the internet. At this very moment someone is being “liked” into digital ecstasy.
Is it sad, perverse or sick? No. I see it as a new extension of our sexual and intellectual boundaries. We are stretching ourselves out into the digital universe. We are learning to free our extended minds and bodies. Like digital mycelium that is branching out and seeking orgasmic intellectual nutrient. I look forward to the near future when the Brain Computer Interface (BCI) movement becomes commercially available to the masses. Think of how that will change our intellectual orgasms!

Everyone has their own and we all lust for them. No matter what your intellectual fetish is, once your digital impulse is activated and ready for action, you will seek out your fetish until you achieve your digital intellectual orgasm.
