Why bother with basic porn? We might soon have data-suits that can dish up cybersex. Jonar Nader explains the application of tele-dildonics. To listen to an excerpt from the radio broadcast, please click on the green play button below.
Here is a transcript of the audio file.
Host: There was a review done recently of a book in which they got a group of scientists around to predict what things would be like in 2020, 2040, 2050. One of the suggestions in there was that you would have your own virtual reality sex partner by 2024. It’s interesting isn’t it that when we talk about virtual reality in creating something that seems real, sex partners come straight to the fore. Does that cheapen the process, and the use of virtual reality?
Jonar Nader: Well it is only a small part of it but because it is a sensational one it gets the headlines when there is tons of stuff happening in almost every field from finance to medicine to architecture but cyber sex at it is known (or teledickdonics) is an interesting one because people say what do you need that for? Don’t forget that today the 0055 and the 1900 numbers which were introduced so you could call your solicitor and he can charge you per minute, are mostly used for phone sex. We are quite happy with the idea that you can have magazine sex, which is a very 2D thing, it is only a piece of paper.
Host: So the idea isn’t new just the technology allows you to change the idea.
Jonar Nader: Yes, and from that you will have things like data suites that can give you feel and touch. Sight is the most important factor in virtual reality because you can really trick people with their eyes. You can actually be standing at a train station and you can see the train next to you move forward but for a split second you are adamant that you moved backwards, now that split second is a virtual reality, your eyes took in some pulsars faster than your brain could process, you believe what you saw and reacted to it. Well similarly, why can’t we have data suites that can give you pulsars and sensations whether it be on the hand or physically attached to your neurons or whatever else makes you tick so cyber sex is a big industry as is telephone sex as is video sex as is publishing sex, and then the questions of ethics and censorship come up.
