When reality just isn’t good enough… power tools come to the rescue.

Recent Job Posting: Seeking – Principal Teledildonics Integration Engineer

VRSex

According to several women writers, a hot hi-tech hiring wave will be seeking: Teledildonics Integration Engineers and Fleshlight API Programmers (FAPs.) While porn has been trying to edge into Virtual Reality Sex, and VR keeps trying to penetrate the porn market, maybe the moment for this market to explode has finally come. As with most provocative blogs, the real meat of interest is in the comments sections of these posts. Let’s just say it’s a sausage fest.

We all know what enabled the VCR to become ubiquitous. One marketing school of thought foresees being virtually jacked-in as the app which will put a Rift in every home.

Fruzsina Eordogh evaluates the state of the art in VR porn (NSFW):

The porn of the future is titillating. As virtual reality matures, we’ll be aroused in three-dimensional immersive alternative realities, interacting with super-lifelike porn stars customized to our taste. People will look back on our passive and lonely 2D smut and pity us.

Retired adult performer Aurora Snow, in “In-Your-Face 3D is the Future of Porn“, adds to the hype.

A webcam girl could offer a “hands on” interactive session without ever having to leave the bedroom or swap bodily fluids. A porn star could give an explicit how-to tutorial to a couple a thousand miles away. The world of porn is about to change… All joking aside, what was once considered an expensive gimmick (VR) is on the verge of going mainstream.

And Gina Lynn (not the porn star) tells us The 10 Real Reasons Why Geeks Make Better Lovers. Numero uno: “Geeks build it so you will come!”

Geek lovers combine a well-developed and oft-exercised erotic imagination with their physical technique. It isn’t a big leap from “I’m a level-13 thief, evil-aligned” to “I’m the prison warden and you’re the new detainee.”

VRtifacts has covered 25 years of predictions that Virtual Sex will be the killer app.

Is It VR Yet?

Harvey Newquist tires of waiting for the New York Post headline to scream: “Wife Dumps Husband For Cybersex Lover” or “Computer Casanova Seduces Virtual Valerie.”

Money quote:

Does the average person get to see or use any of this stuff? Can you go any place just experience the joys of VR? Is Ronald Reagan in full control of his senses? The answer to all these questions is an emphatic “no.” … Try asking your next-door neighbor about VR. Ask him or her about their most recent VR experience.

Has anything changed in the 15 years since this 1996 article was published in the Virtual Reality Special Report?

Redefining Power Tools – CyberSM

As sex-suits go, these are pretty weeee-id! All shiny leather and chrome, this cybersex system haptically connects our happy couple over dial-up all the way from Cologne to Paris and back. If you somehow missed the “SM” in CyberSM (and here), “haptic” means that foreplay consists of electro-shocking each other’s fiddly bits and vibrating nipple clamps. It’s all plugged into the mains!

The video clip is self explanatory till the final section. What’s up with the talk show set? Is German Expressionism back in vogue?

And for another perspective:

Hope this doesn’t get you all wet…

CYBERSEX – You’ll Never Buy An X-Rated Video Again!

Apparently Cybertech didn’t anticipate Torrents and the Usenet. Anyway, “sigh-burr-sex” seemed like a slam dunk in ’94. No one seemed concerned that a machine might rub you the wrong way.

Money quotes from the Cybertech Systems marketing slick:

CYBERSEX

  • You can enjoy your “dream partner” any time you want.
  • Frequency depends entirely on you; The words “no” and “headache” do not exist in virtual reality.
  • The safest and most satisfying sexual encounters known to man – always.
  • How often can you handle it?

I shudder to think about the “intensive development:

After 3 years of intensive development he developed the CYBERSEX HOME VR-SIMULATOR SYSTEM.

Blaming the liberal media?

Phil Donahue experimented with it on national TV in front of millions of viewers.

Asked by the author (Cybertech founder):

So what’s in it for us? … My staff and I will be “virtually” set for life, as the expression goes.

In the virtual world, anything is possible!
