The porn industry is typically quick to jump on new developments in tech and this was certainly the case in the earlier stages of VR. Virtual intercourse isn't a new concept, but the addition of virtual reality HMDs has added a degree of immersion to the experience. Today, cam site CamSoda announced that it is taking virtual intercourse to the next level with the new experienced called VIRP (Virtual Intercourse with Real People) where sex with cam models is mimicked via teledildonics integrated dolls from RealDoll.
Our contact Dr. William Fox, Professor at the Northwestern Polytechnical School of Carnal Robotics and Teledildonics, was too flabbergasted to provide a quote at the time this was written.
In VIRP, ladies or gents start by choosing a favorite CamSoda model. Then, they'll choose from one of the connected RealDolls, throw on their VR headset, and get things started.
“People have long speculated as to how the adult industry would seamlessly harness its cutting-edge technology to deliver the ultimate sensory experience, one that mimics real-life interaction and, of course, intercourse,” said Darren Press, VP, CamSoda. “Our partnership with RealDoll to allow our fans to VIRP is an absolute game changer. Fans will now be able to interact with their favorite cam models in real time via live virtual reality while simultaneously feeling the sensations of actual intercourse via their RealDoll and teledildonic integration. Essentially, users will be able to live out their ultimate sex fantasies, and quench their immediate desires, in an immersive sensory environment that allows them to have real sex with virtual partners.”
The RealDolls are currently available and start at $1500 for just a torso. A full doll can cost upwards of $10,000 and allow for individual customization. Sex dolls are here to stay and advancements in AI and virtual reality are making the doll experience more immersive and involving so that time with them more closely reflect intercourse with a real partner. This initiative from CamSoda is a smart move to bring their models closer to their communities in a safe way and will likely inspire similar experiences from different companies.
