VR sex is going mainstream, and it’s as cheap as it is realistic

Amsterdam-based sex tech (teledildonics) company KIIROO has recently released the TITAN, its own interactive vibrating stroker with touch-sensitive vibration technology, which features a “real-feel sleeve and 9 bullet vibrators that intensify your masturbatory experience.” Soon after it came out, the teledildonic received so much demand that the company decided to swap the normal TITAN with the TITAN VR EXPERIENCE, which includes, on top of the vibrating stroker, a virtual reality headset as well as some toy cleaner and lubricant. KIIROO offers customers all this only for $199. Here’s why VR sex is finally going mainstream.

VR sex is going mainstream, and it's as cheap as it is realistic

According to the company, the TITAN male sex toy is “perfect for men who climax to stroking motions and enjoy intense vibrations.” In other words, for almost $200, the VR experience will probably convince anyone who tries it that real-life sex experiences are not that necessary anymore. Not only can the device work in sync with porn videos that are viewed through the VR headset, but it can also be controlled by an actual human partner from anywhere else in the world.

This highlights the potential for VR sex tech to become more than a male user’s pleasurable (and mute) companion. This technology has the potential of becoming something more than someone’s solo fun—it could actually become something of a VR sex game for people in a relationship.

The TITAN is described by the company as “an experience that has no parallel in the world of adult entertainment,” and it’s true, until now, having sex with a machine was not completely impossible but unaffordable for sure. Of course, the device works with a Bluetooth-connected app, which can connect users to over 4,000 interactive videos on a range of different content platforms. “Feel every movement made by your favorite stars, whether it is in 2D or VR,” says KIIROO.

When connecting to the app, a user can select and enjoy a specific VR video with vibration patterns programmed to work in sync with the TITAN. As mentioned previously, the app can also link up with another device, allowing the user to feel everything their partner does by way of synchronised vibrations that adjust for speed and intensity.

What is truly amazing when it comes to this product, is not only the technological advancement it represents, especially in the VR sex industry, but also its price. When the Virtual Mate was first launched, its price was close to $500, which meant that most VR fans had to settle for sex simulators and other sex tech products.

The TITAN VR EXPERIENCE offers more, for less. And with so many people currently socially distancing from others because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market for KIIROO’s TITAN seems bigger than ever. So, if you’re curious about VR sex, why not check it out? If you’re still against this kind of technology, you might need to ‘suck it up’, as they say. Whether you like it or not, affordable, realistic VR sex is invading the market.

Sex simulator: everything you need to know about VR porn games

What is a sex simulator?

With the rise of technology and the many pornographic platforms that it brought with it, many people developed an interest in sex simulators, which are described as adult virtual and augmented reality interactive experiences or games where users can play with different characters in sexual ways. In simpler words, sex simulators are basically VR porn games—and people go crazy for them. But why is that and how big is the VR porn gaming market?

VR porn games and sex games

If you’ve never heard of VR porn games and other types of sex games before, it probably means you’ve never had a crush on a video game’s character. Never thought that Princess Zelda was extra cute in that white dress she wore for the first time in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Me neither, but as it turns out, many gamers did. To be clear here, I’m not kink-shaming, they can like whatever they want to as long as no one gets hurt.

In a way that is not so dissimilar to Virtual Mate, a virtual partner aimed at heterosexual male users that comes with a high tech fleshlight, VR porn games lets users discover a highly detailed gaming world through their Oculus Quest or another virtual reality headset and allows them to realise their own secret fantasies with whatever character they’re into.

What kind of sex simulators are there?

The world of adult VR games is already wide and full of diverse options for potential players. From Femdomination, a simulation game where women are in control, to Mandy’s Room, a game where users can stay in the same room as the main character named Mandy while she plays, dances, and “gets naughty” or Besti, which is an interactive and very specific my little pony fetish VR game, it is safe to say that sex games enthusiasts can find whatever they’re looking for.

What is ‘Waifu Sex Simulator’?

Waifu Sex Simulator is a VR porn game built-off a modified version of MocuMocuDance which lets users import and pose a wide variety of 3D models, whether to touch them or cast them into predefined animations. The game also supports custom model imports, which means players can simulate sex with any character, from Mario Kart’s Yoshi to The Legend of Zelda’s famous Princess Zelda.

What is ‘Captain Hardcore’?

Captain Hardcore is also well-known in the sex games industry. Developed by AntiZeroGames, the game tasks players with exploring the universe while also spending sexy time with the “hottest and most depraved space sluts” you can find out there. In other words, Captain Hardcore lets players customize female characters and play with them or use the “cyber-masturbatorium” to pose models in erotic scenes and watch.

While many of those sex simulators are still being worked on in order for them to be even more realistic, the industry of VR sex games is certainly one to watch. As more and more gamers feel like they can truly fulfil their sexual fantasies through their VR headsets, who knows? One day, we might all turn to sex simulators to search for new experiences too.
