    A lot of these are stigmatized now.

    Here's what they shared:

    1. "Gay marriage even in conservative countries. A lot of countries still discriminate them and hopefully in 20 years it will change."


    2. "Sex work. Or frankly just having NSFW social media accounts with one's own pics on them in general. There will be less of a stigma."


    3. "Virtual reality sex with strangers."

    4. "Not having kids. People still do not respect or accept that a person often doesn’t want to be a parent."


    5. "Eating bugs. Lobster use to be fed to prisoners and slaves. Now the poor can't afford it."

    6. "Hopefully asexuality will be more well known. It's a valid sexuality."


    7. "Quitting a job without two weeks notice. Job marketplace is becoming very transactional and plug and play."


    8. "Not doing chores/housework. Advances in technology will probably mean that there will be robots that do all your chores for you, I hope."


    9. "Polyamorous relationships."

    10. "Open relationships."


    11. "Being openly communist."


    12. "Owning a canoe/kayak just to get around after the sea levels rise beyond our control."

    13. "More pronouns, like for people who identify themselves differently."


    14. "Women and men dating purely for money — even more so than now."
