Some may see it as a sci-fi utopia or movie plot, but we're living in the future. Virtual reality in the adult entertainment industry is a huge thing now, and it is becoming a new normal for getting pleasure.
VR as a concept isn't new. It has been around for decades now. And, truth be told, for as long as it has been in the public eye, the concept of VR sex was always a hot topic. Today, VR sex is no longer just a hypothetical thing. It's a reality.
VR in the sex industry is still in its early days. But this technology is increasingly popular among adults looking for some unique sexual experiences. So, companies everywhere are already experimenting with smart sex toys, offering consumers unique pleasurable experiences.
Virtual sex sounds like a sci-fi novel idea. But, it's actually no longer a sci-fi concept but a reality. Virtual sex is just another term for something that most people these days are familiar with: cybersex. The truth is that we were all already using tech in our everyday sex lives, even without being aware of it. From looking for sexual partners on online dating apps to sliding into the DMs of people we find hot to sexting, dropping a nude to our sexual partners, and all that. So, it was only a matter of time before tech entered our bedrooms for more pleasurable experiences.
According to Teen Health Source, virtual sex represents “any kind of sexual activity that people do with/on the internet.” The same definition also includes activities like sexting, masturbating together on video chat, phone sex, sending photos, and chat rooms as virtual sex.
But, with technology developments reaching new heights in the adult entertainment industry, the term “virtual sex” gets a little bit more complicated. Today, the industry has more unique experiences to offer to consumers, including realistic adult video games, VR porn, and even the possibility to receive tactile sensations from remote participants or fictional characters using computer-controlled VR sex toys.
The virtual reality porn experience
One of the biggest VR things in the adult entertainment industry is VR porn.
At the beginning of VR glasses, these devices were meant to be plugged into smartphones or other home devices to access content which would then be displayed through the glasses. It was all about making the experience more real. Very quickly, users started to think about how it would be to see a porn scene through those glasses. And, tech professionals and adult entertainment companies were quick to answer. Today, users who are tired of the same old porn can find VR porn content that is often in 5K or 4K resolution, creating an immersive environment that allows them to feel like they are truly part of the scene they are watching.
Now, in theory, you don't need any heavy-duty equipment to watch VR adult content and feel like you are taking part in the action. All you need is a smartphone suspended in a headset that allows you to see the content more excitingly. Yet, this is where VR sex toys come into the scene to spice things up even more!
VR does a fantastic job tricking our brains into thinking that what we see through those glasses is actually taking place in front of us, next to us, or… on top of us. Now, with VR, you can see that things are happening in front of your eyes, and you can see other people being part of the action. But is seeing enough? Adult toys developers argue that it isn't. Your eyes may see something that looks like you're behind the scenes of an exciting sexual experience. But, the problem is that you don't actually feel those people you are seeing. So, haptics used in sex toys aims to make users also feel.
VR toys offer unparalleled sexual experiences
Needless to say, VR sex is a new thing to many. And, it's a bit strange to get used to it at first. But if you want to become more familiar with this concept, you're in for a fun and pleasurable ride.
In its simplest form, VR sex consists of three things: a VR device, interacting media, and something that you can interact with, such as interactive male sex toy options. Combining VR with another technology called teledildonics, today's innovative VR sex toys allow users to stimulate one another, and the VR adult content enhances the experiences making them more immersive.
Traditional adult content means nothing more than staring at a screen, but VR transports users somewhere else and allows them to actually feel pleasure. And, combining this experience with VR toys gives users unparalleled sexual experiences.
Pros of VR sex and toys
The development of VR sex toys and experiences isn't good news just because it offers some unique experiences. It also allows users to get sexual experiences they wouldn't be able to get in real life or they would repress.
VR sex allows people to experiment with different avatars, genders, and forms of sexuality. The intimate nature of these VR sex tools allows users to express and experience their deepest sexual desires.
Think about couples who are struggling with sexual compatibility. VR sex creates a big playground where they can start experimenting and opening up about their sexual desires and even act their fantasies out.
VR sex is also a tool that can help users struggling with their sexual identity. For example, those who identify as bi might experience a certain loss of that identity if they are part of a monogamous relationship. VR adult content and sex toys allow them to fulfill the sexual needs that they can't fulfill in their relationship.
These are all significant pluses for experimenting with technology to intensify our sexual experiences.
