VR has been around for a few years with big players like Google and Sony developing their own devices and FACEBOOK’s Oculus Rift. And obviously someone had to think of a way to use VR for …sex. A Japanese firm has created a “full body virtual interface” to help the wearer simulate sex. The ”Illusion VR” combines a full body suit and a sex toy to give users a “full package” of sexual pleasure, without any need for another human being.
The Illusion System pairs a Samsung Gear VR headset with a haptic feedback suit, meant to simulate the feeling of human touch. It even comes with a pair of female “attachments” to aid in reality. One goes where you might expect for a male user, while the other nestles just under the user’s chest, letting him fondle fake breasts.
According to the Mirror Tenga of Japan developed the Illusion available for a mere $400 but getting hold of one may be difficult, as the suits are apparently entirely sold out. This product appeared online in April so there is a chance that this is no more than an April Fools’ gag.
But this would be far from the first VR sex aid to make an appearance since virtual reality became more viable. And even if it’s not a real product, this might be the most cumbersome, time-consuming way to stimulate yourself. It currently takes a lot of time and effort to get into the suit.
There has been early iterations of VR technology applied to physical stimulation; a company called Kiiroo has been promoting a similar virtual reality sex aid which synchronize with 180-degree porn videos. They’re not as tactile as the Illusion VR system, but clearly immersive VR sex is coming at a store near you.
One interesting aspect of the suit, brought up by IR, is the impact such a system could have on prostitution. If people can get their fix for human companionship at home, perhaps they’ll be less prone to seek illicit methods to achieve it? Would you opt for VR sex or sex robots ?
