Is Virtual Sex Destined to Become Your New BFF?

Interesting article on the latest developments and likely future of virtual sex that appeared online a couple of weeks ago.  The author is a ‘sex addiction’ expert – but don’t let that put you off.  The article is actually pretty good.

Here’s what I learn’t :

  • There is a consumer driven technological race to bring virtual sex products to market.
  • This has been led by the RealTouch – the virtual sex device that can ‘heat itself up, lubricates, pulses, and grips’.
  • Inventors are working to crate an iPad equipped with a Fleshlight holding case.
  • Futurologist Ian Pearson believes that by 2030, people will be able to wear ‘smart lenses’ that change the way their partner looks to them whilst lovemaking – without their partner even necessarily knowing!
  • Popular budget Hotel chain Travellodge announced last year that its hotels in the future will offer digitial sex along with breakfast.

RealTouch to be Given to Military in Afghanistan

AEBN, the makers of the RealTouch virtual sex device, have switched marketing strategy during the last year.  Previously they had promoted their product as the world’s first virtual sex machine – a masturbation toy for men to use with porn instead of having real sex.  Of course, this is a hard sell.  There is something in male psychology which makes it near impossible to admit that jerking off is fun, and that you will spend $200 or more dollars to make more fun.  There is still a taboo about enjoying masturbation in it’s own right, as a choice preferred to real sex.  To the male mind, taking too much enjoyment in masturbation is akin to admitting that you ‘can’t get a girl’.  This is why the female sex toy industry dwarfs its male equivalent, even though men clearly masturbate as much as women do.

Thus over the course of 2011, AEBN switched from marketing the RealTouch as a substitute for sex, to an aid to sex.  They now market it as a penis developer and a stamina trainer, as much as a virtual sex toy.  But shortly, there is going to be a new dimension added to the RealTouch.  Not only will RealTouch users be able to use their toy in conjunction with haptic encoded porn scenes, they will be able to enjoy live virtual sex.

This will be with live females using a special RealTouch ‘input device’ rather like a dildo.  Apparently, webcam perfomers will, after all, be using these devices to offer live virtual sex with RealTouch users.  But currently, AEBN are marketing this new feature of their device as a aid to lovers who are having a long distance relationships and cannot have physical sex together.  To highlight this in the most dramatic way they have released press releases detailing their intention to offer a thousand of their sex toys to soldiers serving in Afghanistan to enable them to enjoy virtual sex with their partners back home in the USA.

 

LAS VEGAS—RealTouch wants to bring teledildonics to Afghanistan. Company manager Scott Rinaldo, appearing at a CES party sponsored by porn firm Pink Visual, said he’s working on distributing “a thousand dildos for the military wives”—in this case, Internet-connected sex toys that can let families thousands of miles apart get intimate.

I’m not sure if he’s being skeezy or sweet here. Let me start with the technology. RealTouch is a slightly terrifying, synthetic orifice that lives in a plastic tube and connects to a computer. Based on data from an Internet connection, the unit warms up, lubes up, pulses and grips any item stuck into it. On the other end of a connection, a “performer”—who could be a paid “cam girl,” or the aforementioned military wife—hand-operates a sensor-covered rod to run the motors in the RealTouch.

RealTouch to Be Sold in Sex Shops

RealTouch is soon going to be sold in bricks and mortar sex shops, as well as through other online retailers.  The move is part of a complete overhaul of the RealTouch marketing strategy, to go along with exciting new capabilities of the toy, such as using to have live virtual sex with online webcam performers.  AEBN representative said that he expects adult stores to be selling the RealTouch by the end of this month.  The world’ first virtual sex device is also going to be showcased next week at the International Lingerie Show in New York.

Breakthough Makes Holographic TV Inevitable

Two years ago a team of researchers at the University of Arizona announced a major breakthrough in holography – they had succeeded in updating a holographic image.  This was the first demonstration that moving holograms were possible.  For a holographic image to appear to move, the image has to be deleted and replaced with a new image.  Nobody had previously been able to do this before.  The Arizona team could only update their image once every 4 minutes, but it as a massive proof of concept, and the first step towards holographic tv.  (note that the live ‘holographic’ projections such as the anime singer Hatsune Miku are not true 3D holograms).

Now, two years later, the same researchers have given details of how far they have progressed towards holographic television in the last 2 years.  They have managed to massively speed up the refresh rate of each holographic image to a highly respectable once every two seconds.  Only a few more doublings until they reach the magical 30 frames per second of ordinary tv.  What’s more, they have succeeded in transmitting the image over an ethernet connection, meaning that live holographic tv (read holographic webcam performers etc)  is likely to become reality in only ‘7 -1 0 years’ according to the head of the team.

Given that there are other research teams, notably in Japan and Korea, working on their own holographic tv (or holo tv) technology, that prediction might be erring a little on the side of caution.

Verizon Tests 10gbps Broadband

Before we can experience 3D virtual sex with true life-like realism, or have high-definition hologram girls dancing naked in our living rooms, it’s commonly accepted that we need a major leap forward in internet speeds.  Such speeds will be needed in order to handle the real-time data downloading required for true high-defintion interraction. Encouragingly, signs are that such a breakthrough is just around the corner.  Verizon, which has been predicting 3D hologram tv in the next 5 – 10 years, requiring 1 gbps broadband, announced this week that it has been successfully testing speeds of up to a staggering 10 giga bits per second – for both downloads AND uploads, using a new technology called XG-PON2.

To put this into perspective, the current roll-outs of  ‘super-fast’ broadband, which few people yet enjoy, usually consist of maximum speeds of 100 mega bits per second.  That means that the speeds that Verizon are testing are 100 times faster than super-fast, and over 1,000 times faster than the broadband speeds that the vast majority of people enjoy today.

Three More Digital Beauties

Digital Beauty ChristinaThree more digital beauties added to Virtual Girls. As digital art continues to gain astonishing realism and beauty, the time must be approaching when it begins to outpace the real thing – if it hasn’t already, judging by the pictures below.  In relation to erotica and virtual sex, it’s unlikely that digital art, no matter how realistic, will completely, or even largely, replace real human models.  In itself, digital art still lacks the psychological element that a real human possesses.  However, digital art will continue to play an increasingly dominant role in virtual sex between two people (example : Second Life).  In fact, there will likely come a time when virtual sex is commonly preferred to the real thing, and if not creating entirely fictitious ‘avatars’ of themselves, lovers could use digital technology to airbrush out a few imperfections.  The combination of Digital art and virtual sex will, for example, allow you to always fuck your partner as she looked as a young sweetheart or the age when you first met and fell in love with her.

The Erotic Engine : How Porn Powers Innovation

The Erotic Engine

Porn doesn’t get the credit it deserves for pushing technological innovation, according to a highly interesting new book by Patchen Barss.  Actually, although there is no doubt porn does deserve credit for it’s role in innovation, the fact that it has done so has almost become a cultural meme in the last year or so, in relation to debate on 3D TVs and the continual claims that 3D porn could be the engine that drives it into mass acceptance.

It’s still welcome, though, to have this constructive role that porn has played spelled out in a lengthy, structured, and researched way.  I haven’t read the book yet, but ‘The Erotic Engine’ has already garnered some mainstream press interest, generally positive – leaving aside inevitable judgemental moral tones.

Barss takes the view that the current ‘porn recession’, with the adult industry dying on it’s feet through piracy and amateur content, will simply stimulate further innovation.  He points to the developments in teledildonics as the obvious example of this.  Hopefully he’s right, and the recent problems with (and the disappearance of ) the RealTouch are no more than teething troubles.

Virtual Sexy Massages from Japan

A new virtual sex game entitled ‘The Love Press ++’ was unveiled in Tokyo recently that uses the Wii balance board to allow you to massage any one of three virtual Japanese cuties. These kind of games will be becoming more and more common over the next few years – just think of the possibilities with the Microsoft Kinect or the Sony Move! :

Roxxxy Sex Robot Version 2.0

Exciting news regarding TrueCompanion’s famous Roxxxy, the world’s first sex robot that was launched in January.  A new upgraded Roxxxy has been anounced that attempts to rectify some of the failings of the original model.  Namely, the fact that she had the face of an inflatable love doll and appeared to be paralysed.  The new Roxxxy is not only much better looking, but she has a degree of movement, being able to buck her head and hips as though she is responding to being taken from behind, as well as the ability to hold your hand.

Despite a degree of ridicule over the limitations of the first Roxxxy, the makers claim that thousands of their sexbots have already been sold.  If that’s true, then with the apparent (and speedy) advances made by version 2.0, it looks like the age of the sex bot may truly have dawned.

The VStroker (Virtual Sex Stroker)

v stroker

The best way to understand the VStroker, a virtual sex male masturbator, is to contrast and compare it with the RealTouch. Like the RealTouch, the VStroker is a masturbation sleeve that connects to your computer, and which synchs with the porn action on screen to create virtual sex.

But the VStroker does it the other way around from the RealTouch. You control the VStroker. Increase the speed of the toy, and not only does your penis get stroked harder and faster, the girl on the screen gets fucked harder and faster too.

This is a tremendously exciting new virtual sex toy, and is a great option for you to consider whilst the RealTouch is out of stock. Another interesting feature of the product is that it can attach to a Fleshlight and several other popular male masturbators. So if you already have a Fleshlight, you only need to buy the adapator which costs just $59.
