Virtual X investigates the future of extreme sexual experiences in virtual reality. Early research in VR has proven that there is a link between virtual experiences and behaviours in the physical world. This project questions whether extreme pornographic experiences, such as simulated rape, could become a mechanism to elude the moral and legal constraints of the real world. By designing the three objects that would enable such an experience, Virtual X exposes a near future to raise debate around the direction the pornography industry travelling is within the context of virtual reality and whether or not these extreme experiences could, and should, be regulated.
