The adult entertainment industry is a billion dollar industry all by itself. However, when you add in the emergence of virtual reality it’s safe to say this number could easily double in a short matter of time. So how long before the need for a partner completely disappears?
It doesn’t take much to satisfy our sexual needs with today’s technology and the continuing advancements in the technology industry. Imaginations are no longer needed as the content a person needs is right at their fingertips. It’s only a matter of time before the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred enough that we have a hard time telling the difference.
Have you ever watched the television series, “Humans” where a man buys a synthetic robot and decides to active the adult programming so that he can have sex with her? The show has an all star cast and is set in a parallel world but it’s not as far-fetched as some may think.
In the show every household has a ‘humanoid’ that is programmed to help out with the children, daily chores and to sleep with humans. They look exactly like a person but they’re actually a robot. Sure, the show is fictional but the concept itself is more realistic than many may realize.
In 1996 a United States company, Abyss Creations, created their first silicone sex doll. Right now they’re working on creating a sex robot. That’s right; an actual sex robot. They have named the female robot Harmony and she will include many realistic features to make her as human-like as possible.
What features might these be? For starters, she’ll have built-in artificial intelligence so she can effectively communicate with a person and she’ll also have heaters in her intimate areas. So what would happen if these robots become very popular and the demand is high? What might the impact be on our current human relations; love and sex lives?
Dr. Ian Pearsons, a futurologist produced a report where he predicts that humanoid robots will be found in households by the year 2025. He also predicts that by 2050 it will be common for humans to have sex with robots.
Dr. Pearsons points out that people already make attachments to non-human beings, so why wouldn’t they become attached or fall in love with robots?
On the contrary, Dr. Kathleen Richardson believes that sexbots would be despairing and detrimental to our society, posing a threat to women all over the world. She even went as far as launching a campaign “Campaign Against Sex Robots” to fight for a complete ban of sex robot production.
VR Porn & Robot Toys
Virtual reality technology is slowly advancing and it’s becoming more common to find toys and porn for the VR world. VR porn and sex toys are already altering the industry of adult entertainment and the technology has not advanced very far yet.
Kiiroo, an Amsterdam based organization is one of the many companies getting involved with the creation of VR sex toys. Couples who are in long distance relationships could benefit from their recently launched toy. The man has a tube that mimics a vagina while the woman has a mechanical dildo to mimic a penis. The toys respond to the touch of the user so regardless of how much distance is between the couple they can still connect and interact in a life-like way.
The toys have since been linked to VR porn videos since the recent release. Therapists are showing their concerns regarding VR porn and the repercussions that could arise. Porn addiction is real and some therapists feel it could worsen with the emergence of VR porn.
Regardless of how the experts feel VR technology and the adult entertainment industry don’t seem to be going anywhere. There are many possibilities that could arise for people who have a hard time getting intimate with someone, or can’t find love as easily as others, etc. And for long distance couples this could be a real game-changer.

When it comes to the relationship of porn and technology, it’s actually quite intimate. The porn industry is no stranger to the many advancements and emergences in the technology industry. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the porn industry will also have a role in virtual reality.
Virtual reality will draw in more consumers especially for video games, however, adult entertainment fanatics will also be looking to use VR for more than playing games. Unfortunately, this may or may not be a good thing.
There have been many concerns brought in to question regarding just how realistic adult entertainment is becoming. However, it’s important to realize that regardless of how realistic VR porn may become over time, it will never honestly portray what real sex is actually like.
More Intimate VR Experience
The emergence of virtual reality offers users a more realistic experience and anyone that owns a VR headset can find compatible porn videos for free on sites like PornHub. VR headsets are becoming more available and gaining more attention from people everywhere; including gamers and those interested in VR porn.
If you were to check out some of the VR porn videos available right now with your VR headset, you’d find them to be fairly impressive although limited in terms of the number of options. You can find millions of videos on a porn site but using a VR headset enables the user to experience a more realistic screening.
Rather than the voyeuristic portrayal of watching most porn videos, watching VR porn brings the experience to a more personal level. Of course, it’s a one-sided experience. This brings in to question just how likely users are to encounter social or psychological implications.
Porn Affects Everyone Differently
Pornography has been a controversial topic for many people. There are many factors that come into play when trying to measure how porn will affect a certain individual. Men who are already sexually aggressive might have negative side effects from watching VR porn. Someone who enjoys watching porn as a hobby might not experience any side effects, good or bad.
Society has over-speculated new technology many times and will likely continue to do so as new advances are made every year. Consider the bicycle – many medical professionals really believed that they would cause women to become lesbians. Another consideration – the vibrator. Many were concerned they would become a ‘replacement’ for an actual penis and more women would lose interest in men sexually. And yet another consideration – citizens in Utah believe marriage will become nonexistent thanks to internet porn. So, in reality, the introduction of VR porn could produce a variety of reactions from people all over the world.
The majority of VR porn users will likely be those who already enjoy adult videos and entertainment. It’s very unlikely that it will cause more people to partake in the adult entertainment industry, like some may believe. It will be an experience unlike any other, most definitely, but it’s going to be hard to silence the discussion of VR porn as more videos and websites become available and compatible with virtual reality headsets.
