Having problems in your sex life_ VR porn might be the answer

Is technology a virtue or a vice? It’s been a long drawn debate and one that has no black-and-white answer. But if you ask me, it’s both and neither at the same time. Technology as with any other extra-human enhancements, is just as good as the user. Let me explain this with the help of an example.

Let’s say we take a scalpel. The scalpel is a specialist knife usually used by doctors to cut open the skin during a surgery. As a result, it’s easy to conclude that the scalpel plays an integral part in helping doctors save lives. But would you still say that the scalpel saves lives, if a murderer used it? You wouldn’t because you would expect him to commit a crime with it, as opposed to saving a life. As a result, it’s the person using the scalpel that determines whether it’s a virtue or a vice.

The same argument can be used for technology. It can be the cause of creating a reclusive mindset as well as allowing differently-abled people to find expression and a new way of life. Scientists have for long said that porn addiction is a serious problem. It creates sexist tendencies and can also cause the viewers to be reclusive.

However, that’s mainly due to the kind of content produced and how the content was consumed. General 2D porn is voyeuristic in nature. Meaning, it offers a voyeur’s perspective into the sexual moments to two other people. That in itself is kind of unnatural since we do not get to be a voyeur usually in real-life (unless you’re part of swinger or voyeur groups).

In VR porn, however, the viewing perspective changes. From a voyeuristic perspective, it changes to a POV perspective. The difference between the two is that a voyeur focuses on the visualising his/her fantasies being played out by two individuals. In a POV view, the entire focus is only on one person, that’s the performer of the opposite sex. Since, the viewer itself becomes part of the scene, it forces the viewer to actually engage with the performer and look for interaction. Here there’s no third-party to do all the hard work, while the viewer enjoys the view.

The viewer becomes part of the scene at the performer interacts and plays out the scene keeping that the viewer is the ‘other person’. While normal 2D porn creates a reclusive mindset due to a third-party mindset, VR porn enforces interaction from the viewer and familiarises them with the softer and more sensual side of intimacy. This allows them to actually practice creating an intimate moment. Many guys have issues looking directly into the eyes of their partner. But VR is built on the premise that more the performer looks into the camera, more the viewer is engaged. It reverses the entire premise that porn had built and allows people to actually takes an interest in creating a moment.

Similarly, other technological advancements like teledildonics do a lot of service for far-flung couples. Long distance relationships are hard. But creating an intimate moments using two inter-connected devices is far more wild can sexting. This all wouldn’t have been possible without VR porn. Some couples have even found new ways to rejuvenate their relationships by investing in VR porn.
