VR Porn Could Be Most Addictive Pornography Yet

VR Porn Could Be Most Addictive Pornography Yet

Written on June 26th, 2016 in Stories by Anthony Spencer

Technology has been the driver for much change in the porn industry. These changes, such as video, internet streaming, and the like have increased the scope of pornography in the marketplace.  While VR porn is far from saturating the marketplace, it is out there and it’s on the rise. Many are already aware that pornography can put otherwise stable relationships at risk. VR porn could cause even greater strains. How indulgent would a spouse or other partner truly be if they knew you were engaging in a virtual porn experience with absolutely no need of them at all?

In a survey for an article that appeared on Techradar.com, approximately 600 people were surveyed in order to gauge what the mood might be for VR pornography and the effect it may have on a relationship. While some couples may be comfortable with watching porn together, most that were surveyed were uncomfortable with the idea of VR porn. They feel as if they were being cheated on.

According to Cindy Gallop of Make Love Not Porn (MLNP), the problem isn’t porn as much as it is the fact that people don’t have enough real, honest and open communications about sex in their relationships. “If people could have healthy, open conversations about sex and had that all around them, they wouldn’t have the insecurities about this artificial nightmare.”

For Gallop, the change has to come from people within the relationships rather than demanding changes from the technology. “Tech blogs focus primarily on the hardware: VR, teledildonics, sex robots etc. It’s easier to talk about the hardware than the squidgy software that is people.”

Some are worried that the rise and the media focus on VR porn can become self-fulfilling in creating some real-world problems.
