In a sign of how big the virtual sex industry is likely going to become, the domain name SexVR.com sold for over $11,000 this week. That makes it the most expensive VR domain name sale yet, beating the $10,000 figure that was paid for VRxxx.com earlier this year.
Meanwhile, rest assured that vr porn and virtual sex ARE coming to the Oculus Rift, despite headlines this week claiming that Facebook were going to block porn from the device. Those media reports told us nothing new – VR porn apps will be prohibited from the official Oculus store, as expected, but Facebook have no intention to block vr porn played on the device straight from a PC. You can already buy vr porn videos that play on the developer kit Oculus (via your pc) at VirtualRealPorn.com
The makers of RealDoll, luxury sex dolls, yesterday announced that it is working on creating sex bots that they hope to start selling in the near future. The sex bots will be identical to their high-end ultra-realistic dolls, with the added feature of being able to move their faces, heads, blink and even talk.
Matt McMullen is credited with inventing the RealDoll, a life-size, customizable and completely poseable love doll presumably for lonely people with asthma. He told the New York Times he’s currently working on a more animated doll that he hopes will have more human-like movements and even audible responses — because if your sex partner is a simulated person, you’re clearly a master communicator.
McMullen calls his project Realbotix and he’s hired a team of robotic engineers from Hanson Robotics, a company that has produced some impressive humanoid robots such as the conversational, expression-reading humanoid named Han that made its debut in April.
He’s also working on giving his new sex-bot its own artificial intelligence so it can respond to questions and statements while it’s batting its eyes or making kissy faces at its living love master.
The founder of the Oclus Rift has quashed concerns that Facebook might attempt to block virtual porn from playing on its VR headsets. Facebook bought the company behind the Rift for billions of dollars last year, but the man who created the device and who is still in charge of developing it specifically stated that Virtual Reality Porn is coming..
Oculus VR does not intend to stop the adult entertainment industry from using its Rift virtual reality headset as a platform for virtual erotica, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey said during a panel at the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Conference on Monday.
“The Rift is an open platform. We don’t control what software can run on it,” Luckey said in response to question about intentions to block X-rated content or apps, according to Variety. “And that’s a big deal.”
Oscar Quine of British Newspaper ‘The Independent’ asks whether the VR race will be determined by pornographers seeking to make a fortune from the coming virtual worlds…
Toby is one of a handful of people around the world engaged in a pornographic space race. The first man to the moon will be he who achieves video-quality interactive content. An immersive porn videogame, if you like, in which the character(s) of your choosing will respond to your every prompt and indulge your every fantasy. Because of technology like his, the graphics won’t just be lifelike, they will be perfect representations of the real world. And for an industry beleaguered by the explosion of free video sites, a game-changing, paid-for product like this can’t come along soon enough.
As with Apollo and Sputnik, the technology comes with a hefty price tag. In the centre of Toby’s studio stands a rig of 150 Canon 100D cameras pointed inward from every conceivable angle to a central stage. This is where he photographs the models. A set of images taken simultaneously is processed by a computer 100 times more powerful than a home PC to create a VR reproduction in intricate detail.
Toby has spent £250,000 on the set-up to date – and needs another £1-2m to trade up to video cameras. He’s confident it’s a shrewd investment. “When it hits the consumer market, it’s going to go absolutely mental,” he says, earmarking next year for the first interactive VR products. “I don’t think the public are aware of what’s going to happen.”
Sex therapist Laura Berman was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about the future of sex. Like most female ‘sex experts’ her focus is on the benefits future tech will bring to women, but happier and hornier women will obviously be good news for men too..and then there will be the sex bots as well..
Currently sex aids are widely available, but the future is going to hold some truly edgy products. Futurists are predicting that—in just 10 to 15 years—there will be robots that will look and feel incredibly lifelike, robots with which you can cuddle and have sex. You will be able to design your perfect mate, complete with the right voice and the artificial intelligence to whisper those sweet nothings at exactly the right time.
Virtual romantic partners like Samantha in the movie “Her” will be a reality. In fact, a new app called Invisible Boyfriend is already out, sending you loving texts like a real boyfriend might.
We will be able to have robust sexual experiences without touching. Talk about disease prevention! Imagine engaging in anything from targeted foreplay to exploring your wildest fantasies by stimulating your partner with a click of a mouse, even when you are across town or in another country.
Tiny4K.com is one of the first 4K ultra-hd porn sites, and the very first to focus exclusively upon beautiful, tight, nubile teenage girls in hardcore sex action.
Nice video presentation summarizing the treds likely to make up the near future of porn, with the stress on virtual reality porn.
Although the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset still hasn’t been officially released (although thousands of ‘developer kits’ have been sold), a number of adult websites have already sprung up with content available to download for the device. One such is a British company called Veiviev that has put demos of its interactive porn game on to Vine. The software allows Oculus Rift users to touch the breasts of models, with the titties moving in a realistic way in response to how and where.
