AI, VR, Porn and the New Sex Tech Boom

teledildonics

Teledildonics, the webcamming boom, VR porn, and the general sex tech explosion of the early millennium showed little sign of slowing down as 2020 appeared on the horizon. As we now know 2020 to be a more or less unmitigated disaster year, many suspected something as seemingly frivolous as sex tech would suffer the fate of, say, live music. That has proven to be far from the case.

 

Virtual reality porn and its related forms offer a more intimate take on the standard pornstar-viewer exchange; a hugely more intimate take. Staring into the eyes of a star you’d previously only seen with other men and women as they surround you with their highly individual sexuality is an experience that most definitely changes a viewer’s understanding of the future of both entertainment and sexual expression. Not everyone favors sharing their private intimate time with your typical (or even atypical) pornstar but remain interested in expanding their horizons along a similar path. Thankfully, they too have plenty of options to explore during isolation and social distancing.

 

Guys, Girls, Games

 

Standing at the intersections of virtual pornography, artificial intelligence and adult gaming, Hybri offers users a chance to enter a slick sci-fi world and create a virtual companion of their own design, and to bring that companion into their actual environment via a mobile Augmented Reality app.

 

The virtual entities created by Hybri users can be customized in numerous ways and be made to look like basically anyone. Facial features and expressions, hair, body shape, skin tone, and even personality traits can be tailored by Hybri users. Obviously not all will be creating romantic partners but Hybri’s developers have certainly provided for those seeking a virtual romantic partner.

 

Next Gen Sexting

 

If designing a virtual partner from the (virtual) ground up is too much effort for you, and if you’re more interested in conversing with, rather than staring at, your digital pal, chat bots utilizing Artificial Intelligence may have more to offer. SlutBot, a text-message-based chatbot created by San Francisco outfit Juicebox, brands itself as a free tool to help those hoping to try sexting actual people by giving them an AI porn partner. Along similar lines but providing a more humanoid character-based approach in its app and web interface, Replika allows users to create a virtual chat partner who learns from their interactions and experiences. Where a user’s relationship with their Replika can lead is entirely up to the two of them.

 

Replikas (as the virtual individuals are known, though they each have a name) exhibit personality traits somewhat more independent from those specified by users. Occasionally appearing to get stuck in a conversation loop and often taking a starkly opposite reading of a user’s inputs and their intentions, Replikas nevertheless have developed remarkably deep relationships with some users. As a tool providing therapeutic company, creations like Replika are becoming more widely utilized and valued. The fact that Replika, SlutBot and other such AIs can be used for purely prurient interests is a boon that reflects right back on mainstream virtual reality porn. And, as is so often the case, the feedback loop between the industries of vice and mainstream tech advancements is in full effect.

 

Bots Behind Closed Doors

 

In an effort to combine the open-ended opportunities provided by AI characters with the physical pleasure of more traditional adult interactions, AI-augmented brothels have begun appearing around the globe. Naughty Harbor, located in Central Prague, Czech Republic, offers patrons a chance to book time with one of the in-house attendants, each one as sexy as she is non-biological. With a motto of “What happens behind closed doors, stays behind closed doors,” Naughty Harbor seems to be freeing people of the complications arising from living out fantasies with another human being, someone with physical and emotional response systems built on self-preservation, not solely on gratifying a partner.

 

Suggestions that AI-equipped “sexbots” be largely used for teaching young people consent, personal boundaries, social interaction, and common courtesy before they enter the world of adult dating. Bots are now being constructed and designed with “consent modules” in place that will require the bots human collaborator to cultivate a compassionate, mutually rewarding interaction that’s much closer to the realities of human dating and relationships.

 

Some doll creators are heading in a more directly gratifying direction, however. Harmony, a creation of RealdollX, utilizes her AI programming to hold fluid, flexible conversations, charm her companion, and even tell jokes. Perhaps more importantly, Harmony’s facial features and articulation come extremely close to human realism. Must compassion and consent be directly programmed into such a convincing character or will users’ inevitably begin to see their artificial companions as more-or-less human?

 

Will our expanded expectations of virtual and non-human partners transfer across to our interpersonal relationships, too? Will those who employ the aid of an artificial companion come to be more sensitive and compassionate in their relations with other humans, or will they favor the more malleable, self-serving experiences had with a sexbot? As distant as a future full of artificial humanoid lovers may seem today, technology and human sexuality do seem to be headed in that direction whether we’re ready for it or not.

 

The Future of Porn!

With the technology moving forward so is the way people are watching porn.

People’s taste and requirements for watching porn has definitely changed over the past decade. Let’s be realistic here. Watching porn on your laptop or PC or mobile phone can be extremely repetitive and boring. Plus, it can also be not that comfortable either.

Lately, a revolutionary way of watching porn has been taking over the market and that is Virtual Reality porn or simply known as VR porn.

Virtual Reality was initially developed for classroom learning, travel, tourism, online shopping and hardcore video game players who spend hours and hours playing their favorite games, however the technology has been quickly applied into porn and with excellent results. Ever since the first VR porn video came out, it drew a lot of attention from a lot of people and today all the major porn producers shoot content in VR with the top pornstars. Top talent like Riley Reid, Nicole Aniston, Aletta Ocean, Mia Malkova and others are often hired to perform in scenes for Virtual Reality. VR porn videos are all over the internet; some are high quality big budget production that will blow your mind, while others will make you wonder why they exist.

With VR Porn, you’re often right in the middle of the action. You aren’t watching it happen, you’re involved. This makes a huge difference in terms of enjoyment, and also means that you aren’t really a spectator. Immersion is a key element of VR and porn is absolutely no exception. It takes everything that you already enjoy about traditional forms of video pornography and adds an element to make it even better.

In many ways, VR porn is the next logical step when it comes to video content, and it’s expanding rapidly. In just two years we’ve seen the market absolutely explode with new content, and it doesn’t look like that will be slowing down anytime soon.

Watching VR porn requires consumers to own a VR headset and plenty of them are available to purchase online from a low price of $70 all the way up to $800. Be aware that the cheap ones such as Google CardBoard or Homido or even the Gear VR won’t do the job, as a matter of fact many strongly recommend avoiding them. The streaming quality is very low and they also tend to break down very fast and easily. The expensive headsets of $450+such as the HTC Vive, PSVR, Oculus Rift and others, are great and they are mostly designed for savvy and heavy video game players.

If you are looking for a great headset that won’t put a dent on your bank account and that is designed and produced strictly for porn, then the IRIS VR headset is the best option. This amazing headset is sold by PVRmall, it has a superior optical system with crystal clear resolution that doesn’t fall behind the leading VR headsets, it has a 3 hours battery life, it’s extremely light (1 pound) and it also has a beautiful all white design. The headset is priced at 280 AUD and people who purchase this headset, would also get free VR videos through their partner site PVR fun which is huge catalog of VR porn videos from the major VR porn studios. This is actually a big advantage considering the fact that VR porn subscription cost about $50 a month.

It’s good to know this because if you are thinking you can enjoy free VR videos on Pornhub, Xvideos or some other free site then you will have a big surprise. Those free sites don’t have the technology to back up Virtual Reality, therefore the quality of the movies is really bad and it won’t be enjoyable.

PVRmall.com is currently running a promotion where you can order your headset today, try it out and if you don’t feel satisfied you can always return it. Therefore,there’s nothing to lose.  You could even have a go at IGM Games.

In conclusion VR porn is expanding a lot these days and it’s in command on all porn searches on the internet. For people who never tried VR porn or want to keep up with today’s technology or want to simply try something new in porn, then the IRIS VR Headset will satisfy their needs. It provides such great entertainment that if you are a single guy or a single woman you will spend a lot of time using it. Plenty of VR videos are also shot with a woman point of view so it’s basically for both sexes. If you are married, that’s a different story, you need to hide the device from your husband or wife and if you get caught don’t blame this article for it, I warned you in advance.

 

You’ll be fine J
