Virtual reality sex has long been a popular concept in our culture, but now a Japanese company has made virtual sex into a reality. Named Oculus Rift by its creators, the device consists of a headset and a robot arm that connects to a socket, with computer generated sex scenes directing the movement of the arm.
Those engaging in this game feel as if they are actually experiencing the sex scenes in question. However, don’t run down to your nearest electronics just yet — the Oculus Rift isn’t available on the commercial market as of yet. Some feel that it is only a matter of time, though, when copies will be available through ingenious Internet marketers looking to make their fortune.
With the advent of other types of virtual reality, it was only a natural progression that a virtual sex simulator was created, and it will probably only be another matter of time when they are available for sale to the average consumer who has the money to spend and the desire to explore the relatively unknown world of virtual sex.
Whether they will become a popular electronic item that almost every well-equipped household has or just another novelty that has a brief five minutes of fame before fading into obscurity remains to be seen. Naturally, it can be speculated to what extent the Oculus will replace actual sexual relationships between human beings if it’s released to the general public. After all, many people fantasize about a partner who’ll do all the work during sexual activity, and the Oculus Rift lives up to this.
The user simply positions a Japanese masturbation device known as the Tenga, puts the headset in place, and sits or lies back and enjoys the ride. No need for uncomfortable mornings after or tedious small talk might make the Oculus Rift appealing to some.
