Any suggestions?

My ding-a-ling. I'd be happy on a Star Trek style holodeck for a bit of nookie though.

What about the Star Trek Holodeck type digital women where it is just like reality. Imagine being able to nail any woman in the world you like or creating your ideal woman - she will be programmed to meet all your needs and desires and will never say no

But yea, a cd is digital
