VR-Porn-Doku: The Digital Love Industry

Nette Doku der Vice über Virtual Reality-Porno und Artverwandtes. Hätte ich eigentlich in die Links gepackt, aber dann ist mir das hier grade eben durch den Feedreader gerutscht: The Race to Create the ‘YouTube of VR’ is On. Die zwei Sachen kombinieren – und mit ein bisschen Glück hat sich der Zuckerberg da einen Multimillardendollarpornomarkt gekauft. „YoupornVR, powered by Cunnilingus Rift“, oder so.

vrpornSoon, virtual reality is going to crash into our lives in a way we never even imagined. Though dating and masturbating have long been commandeered by the web, it's only been as a kind of middleman. Now we're nearing the possibility of falling in love with your computer, as meeting your dream partner could be as easy as slipping on Oculus Rift—the most advanced virtual reality headset in the world.

In Digital Love, VICE investigates how love and sex is faring in the digital age, starting with technology's notorious bedmate, the adult entertainment industry. We make a pilgrimage to LA's "Porn Valley" to witness firsthand how virtual reality is scarily close to creating fully interactive porn before heading to Europe's sex capital, Amsterdam, where the Dutch enthusiastically enlist the use of "teledildonics" to enhance their long-distance relationships.

Along the way we pick apart the digital world's grip on today's relationships. Apps and the rise of social media have revolutionized dating, while virtual affairs end real-life romances and online role-playing games have gone X-rated. Finally, we takes a look at a very modern taboo and ask: Can man's relationship with machine ever translate into real-life intimacy?
