The future of virtual sex is like nothing you’ve ever felt before.
As soon as I enter the strip club, I’m surrounded by dancing women and men sitting beside me, doling out bills for lap dances, reports The Daily Dot.
Next, I’m transported into an orgy, where people are having sex all around me on a sun-dappled roof deck. I almost gasp when I turn my head to see a couple going at it, thrusting just a few inches away from my head.
I’m not witnessing this lurid scene IRL. I’m on an Oculus Rift VR headset at XBiz 360, a sex and technology conference in Los Angeles. The virtual sex show is the brainchild of RedLightCenter, a company that takes the idea of an X-rated virtual world and creates a full immersive experience for the user.
People naturally come together and want to interact, and we can provide them more life-like experiences,” Brian Shuster, the CEO of RedLightCenter, told me at the conference.
“The general reaction is mind-blowing. We’re bringing it to the public on the Jan. 21. There’s hours of motion-capture hardcore sex, lap dancing, pole dancing, swimming and walking. Everything.”
But Shuster doesn’t want to give porn consumers to imagine they’re having sex in a virtual-reality sex world. He wants to give them the opportunity to feel like they’re having sex as well. Because while solo exploration and the ability to meet others in virtual sex worlds is one thing, the ability to increase digital interactivity through touch is quite another.
Brian Shuben, the COO of the male sex toy company , wants to give consumers the ability to have sex with their favorite adult performers and camgirls, or women who interact with their fans via streaming cam shows online.
One option is a Fleshlight attachment called VSTROKER that controls a Shock Spot sex machine, a motorized contraption that calls itself the “Rolls-Royce of fuck machines.” The VSTROKER monitors the speed of your strokes and wirelessly transmits them to your computer, essentially allowing you to have sex with the person on the other side of the screen, for a fee.
However, that technology doesn’t allow the star on the other end to send pleasure back to the viewer. Enter Kiiroo, a teledildonics company that has pioneered a connected sexual experience thanks to capacitive touch.
