Metaverse Getting Hot: Can you Legally Have Sex in Metaverse?
According to experts, sex in the metaverse could become as common and “equally enjoyable” as sex in real life.
In October 2021, Mark Zuckerberg emerged from the depths of scandal armed with a keynote of his plans to build out the metaverse. And in a recent interview Mark Zuckerberg said he thinks people will one day spend most of their time in the metaverse. Turning everyday lives virtual will take some adapting and new approaches to common activities, including sex. But is it legal to have sex in the metaverse? As more and more people invite technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, and metaverse into their bedrooms and most intimate experiences, let’s review the possibilities as well as perils that might bring.
More than Sex Bots
Makers of sci-fi have envisioned a future where human-like sex robots rule human sexual experience. Notwithstanding, sextech is something other than sexbots. Sextech is a US$30 billion industry today, but according to an analysis report, the industry should grow to US$52.7 billion by 2026 with enormous help from online deals. Organizations are hotly attempting to improve the most captivating products that have an intelligent response to sexual movement to exploit this normal development.
These products truly do incorporate sexbots, for example, Harmony, a robotic version of a silicone sex toy made by RealDoll, but also app-connected, smart vibrators, stimulators, and massagers; personalized porn; virtual reality and augmented sexual experiences; and more.
Smart Sex Toys
Artificial intelligence in sex toys plans to accomplish comparative goals as products in other industries—learn from data accumulated by sensors to raise and work on the experience as well as customize it. What’s more, as in different businesses, the organizations that utilize innovation to make a heavenly product or service will have higher sales. From Lioness, the honor-winning brilliant vibrator made by ladies and alluded to as the FitBit for a lady’s orgasm, and Osé, an award-winning robotic sex device “designed to mimic the best kinds of human touch,” smart sex toys are responsible for incredible innovation.
Sex in the metaverse
While there are questions concerning the drawn-out results of allowing people to live out whatever sexual fantasy they have via artificial intelligence and what that may or may do to their real-life interactions with human partners, metaverse offers a way to explore sexuality safely? Virtual reality sexual experiences are today more realistic than ever before, and many offer haptics (the sensation of touch). Metaverse technology is developing rapidly creating very real experiences. The sexual experiences available through virtual reality will continue to become more immersive in the future. Many of these VR experiences can also be combined with other online devices.
With this new innovation, those in serious relationships should decide on new limits with each other. Is exploring sex in the metaverse a safe way to experiment, or is it considered cheating? What if you engage in sex with your partner while augmenting reality so that your partner looks like someone else? The comfort level and boundaries of these experiences will need to be discussed among partners to establish what enhances the relationship rather than harms it.
The digitization forced by the pandemic, not only taught that technology is essential for study, work and entertainment, but for sex. Beyond being a morbid subject, it is part of human life; people had to adapt to confinement, experiencing new ways of leading their sex lives. With the metaverse, instead of sending each other videos, photographs, or having a video call for a sexual encounter, people will be able to have relationships through their avatars.
In conclusion, yes it is legal to have sex in the metaverse but with your respective partner because consent matters and if you try to force someone then you have to face consequences in real life.
