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.

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.
