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.
