VR Porn Set to Become the Next Revenge Porn

Virtual Reality porn or VR porn is set to become the next revenge porn, experts say, as users will be able to program their ex lover into the system.

The growing culture of virtual reality porn is taking over our traditional trends of watching porn. However, for everything good, there is a bad. The bad in this instance comes from virtual reality allowing users to create avatars of their former lovers, allowing them to do whatever they want with them.

Scientists from Newcastle University have conducted research into this problem, highlighting that virtual reality will allow users to experience the heart of the action, giving them a somewhat real-time experience.

“Growing popularity of VR technologies that put users into experiences where previously they were an onlooker,” says Matthew Wood, a PhD in Digital Civics and Doctoral trainee.  “This could mean the extreme, degrading or even abusive imagery in pornography becoming all the more real.”

Furthermore, the experts warned with a mix of three-dimensional printing and DIY porn, users will be able to create models of people; a new form of revenge porn will come to life. This consideration has prompted scientists to get in touch with manufacturers and ask them to set certain parameters for their products.

Dr Wood highlighted that revenge porn is already illegal, but said that once the video or image is out there, then a person is left with very little options. Keeping this in mind, he said the main reason why they are approaching the companies to modify their products was for a safer future.

Apart from virtual porn, virtual reality only became a possibility some years back, with companies like Google, Facebook and PlayStation.

With the matter and safety of VR porn, however, experts asked participants to model their ideal virtual fantasy. Select participants were also asked to explore the taboo areas of their fantasies.

The scientists noted that participants did things they’d normally not do in real life; mostly violent acts including forced acts and sex.

They also discovered with the participants that virtual reality porn was viewed as a close second to cheating on their partner – as the virtual experience was close to reality.

“We found that for most people the potential of a VR porn experience opened the doors to an apparently ‘perfect’ sexual experience – a scenario which in the real world no-one could live up to,” stated Dr Wood. “For others, it meant pushing the boundaries, often with highly explicit and violent imagery.”

Dr Wood said that porn has been with us for a long time, but the future of VR pornography will potentially change our outlook. It may come out more positive if designed in certain terms with manufacturers setting protocols. Since we’re just starting out on this journey, the results of VR pornography are still to be known.
