Sad news for fans of virtual sex and the RealTouch – AEBN announced at the start of the year that they are no longer selling the device. For the time being at least, existing RealTouch users will be able to continue using the device through the RealTouch website.
RealTouch was a brave venture that appears to have failed – the world’s first real attempt to turn virtual sex into a reality. Initially, users of the virtual sex machine were hooked up to synchronised porn movie scenes, but last year the company began offering customers live interactive sex using the device. For the first time in human history, two people could have sex with each other despite being physically remote.
RealTouch may be dead, but it’s only a matter of time before virtual sex is a reality. Already another company is pledging to fill the shoes that RealTouch occupied. They are also taking a more ‘social’ approach. Rather than virtual sex with pornstars, the people behind KIIRO want to build a kind of virtual sex network where men and women can meet to have sex online. The virtual sex is achieved through means very similar to the RealTouch live interactive devices, with a male masturbator synchronising with a dildo type device used by the female. However, both of these devices appear to be simpler and more streamlined than the clumsy and bulky RealTouch devices.
The Fleshlight resembling device for men is named the SVir, while the ladie’s dildo is called OPue.
Unfortunately, at the present time at least, the female device can’t actually recive stimulation from the male device – the virtual contact is one way. This is rather surprising as the ‘social network’ emphasis of KIIRO appears to be marketed towards women as much as men. Hopefuly, these new virtual sex toys will be more successful than the RealTouch, and the next generation will enable real mutual live sex for both the man and the female.
