The Digital Love Industry & Smart Porn [NSFW]

This is an incredibly thorough exposé into the future integration of tech and sexual stimuli. Tactile motion is one thing, but going from an explicit to a tacit acceptance of artificial sexual devices that are digitized in real-time is definitely going to play a part in shaping how we interact with our tech in the near future. This was awesome, VICE!

We investigate the future of love and sex in the digital age—including the
evolution of the porn industry, “teledildonics,” and the very real possibility of virtual romances:

Soon, 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?

I also loved how that video featured Quantic Dream’s “KARA” and Is Tropical’s “DANCING ANYMORE” (Forewarning: the music video below features disproportionate, naked 3D women servicing a highly imaginative young man):

If you liked that, you may also like Dems’ “DESIRE” (FATHER Remix) music video, that puts a Kinect into loving use:
