Like every industry, the advancement of technology changes the way things are consumed and enjoyed. This is no different when it comes to sex. The supremacy of top-shelf magazines has long since waned.
Now, thanks to the Internet, porn is more accessible than ever. However, things will take an even further turn in the future with virtual reality porn and sex robots already available and some experts predicting this will one day be the mainstream.
It often seems like these advances in technology, when it comes to sex, largely revolve around heterosexual men. This is despite the increase in LGBT porn and ever pervasive research signalling that more women are consuming porn than ever (Pornhub.com) latest estimate is that 26 per cent of their users are female.
Mark Brown, Co founder of VRPFILMS.com, a subscription website featuring ‘real sex’ say’s -one reason for this is because the tech world, as well as the sex tech world, typically operates through a male lens. So any tech news about developments in sex tech industry typically are geared towards men. “The tech media world is as male-dominated as the tech world,”. “That means that coverage of sex tech defaults to the side of it that is much more comfortable to talk about – the hardware: Sex robots, VR porn. It is a lot less comfortable to talk about the side MLNP (Make Love Not Porn) operates on – the software, involving people actually having sex with each other.
“What that means is that all the coverage, talk, awareness, promotion and funding goes to the side that is through the male lens and is all about driving us further and further apart into our own little virtual worlds – versus the side that I and other sex tech female founders are on, which is all about bringing people closer together in the real world.
“The key issue here is it is not about ‘for women’, it is about ‘by women’. Sex tech through the female lens is sex tech men will massively enjoy.”
Dr Michael Aaron, a therapist and author of Modern Sexuality: The Truth About Sex and Relationships, says women tend to be excluded from these developments because when new technology is introduced, it starts off by being available to its primary audience. So VR porn may initially serve to cater for men because they are still the largest group of porn consumers.
Mark Brown, Co founder of VRPFILMS.com, say’s – I think as the field matures and VR technology becomes more prevalent and accessible, the market will stabilise and you’ll see more organic and authentic porn for all kinds of audiences. The same female producers and directors will create VR porn as the entire field shifts to VR.”
