virtual reality technology offers the latest in augmented sex experiences

 

 

 

the akihabara district in tokyo is known for being a shopping area for manga and anima, computer goods, household electronics and video games. so, it’s no surprise that it was the site of the world’s first adult virtual reality sex festival in june. but, while it was inevitable that adult VR fest 01 would draw crowds, event organizers underestimated the number of people who would be aroused by the idea, and were forced to shut down the venue because of overcrowding.

as reported by upload VR, only a handful of people were able to get inside the festival to test out the latest in VR sex experiences using headsets like the oculus rift. some situations saw visitors using hand-tracking to guide their fingers over a girl, touching her wherever they wished; a less techy display of a cardboard box invited individuals to place their hand inside to have air blown on it in a particular way that simulated touching a breast; while robot arms emulated the sensation of receiving a hand job.

virtual reality has been garnering a lot of interest for having great potential in the entertainment industry, offering people the ability to immerse themselves in out-of-this-world scenarios. it is the employment of screens that present users with a totally fabricated digital visual experience that makes virtual reality so appealing—serving as an escape from the real world. so, it comes as no surprise that so much has gone into developing software to enhance one’s sex experience by giving users sensations that practically feel physical, giving rise to events like adult VR fest 01.

  • All this technological evolution and knowledge and this is what we do with it?!?

    Guido says:
  • I seriously question the benefit of using virtual reality for this particular field.

    My background is architecture so I can see VR being used to better visualize and promote ideas for building designs. But simulating the experience of sex and intercourse isn’t what I consider a benefit.

    In fact, I worry that going down this route, VR would only separate people from each other to a great extent.

    What makes something great is the fact that it’s real. In this case, intercourse.
