"It's something you have to do on the phone by definition. It's defining what it is." Stone called Sext Adventure a way to explore the technology at the root of our daily interactions with the people we bring into our beds. Smartphones keep us linked through tweets, texts, Instagrams and Snapchats, but physically cut off from the people we're communicating with.
Sexting is a way to pass a boring ride on the train home with someone in another neighborhood.

What would visitors from space think if they saw your sexts? The prolific Mike Walker has developed Sext Machine, "an SMS-based game exploring the frailty of algorithms and human sexuality." You send it fleshy pictures and sexts until you can convince it that it's doing something hot.
Nonsense words accompanied by alien knobs of human flesh -- the creases, the arresting hairs and things. Ideally you don't send it actual nudes -- the ruddy floret to the left of your knee, maybe, or a close-up of the rude, hard tendon at the back of your heel, and you see if the bot thinks it's hot.
It's a bot written by Kara Stone and developed by Nadine Lessio as part of a mobile game called Sext Adventure.
Sext Adventure is a text adventure in the truest sense of the phrase.
