Virtual reality has come a long way since the early days and now according to a press release by extremely popular company VR Bangers, they claim that for a mere USD 10K, you can save your sex session with your significant other and relive it many years down the line by means of virtual reality.

While we are no one to pass judgment on porn or virtual reality porn, asking you to pay USD 10,000 to record your lovemaking and relive it when you’re older does raise some red flags. The obvious reason being that sex should be all-inclusive and age, by no means should be a deterrent or a turn-off.

As per the press release issued by VR Bangers, they state, “Regardless of how cruel and unjust it seems to be, time is rushing inexorably and we cannot do anything about it. With ageing, it is completely natural that our bodies become less and less attractive, but this does not mean that the deeply hidden desires and passion felt for our sexual partners and significant others must also disappear.”

They go on to add, “With that in mind, VR Bangers, LLC — a premium company professionally creating adult movies in virtual reality — has just released their proprietary synchronized VR experience for couples called the Time Capsule — the technological solution that in a certain sense makes time travel possible.”

They go on, “In short, VR Bangers’ proprietary technology allows to record and save the completely synchronized sexual experience to recreate it even in the far future with the use of realistic virtual reality environment.”

There is so much wrong in the introduction to their release that we don’t quite know where to start. First of all, sex, no matter the age is special between two consenting adults and don’t get us wrong, VR porn is definitely the evolution of pornography and even creating your own videos with your partner can be special using consumer-grade VR cameras and inexpensive. However, our problem with this is that they want you to pay a huge fee and they will shoot you and your partner having sex. So, when you’re old and “unattractive” you can watch the video together in a synchronous experience with VR gear.  

As per the press release, “The experience can be considered a luxury one as the cost of the initiative starts from $10,000 (and goes higher depending on many factors and needs of the clientele) – yet every customer couple knows exactly what they are paying for. The price of $15,000 – which is an amount requested for a regular service with a complete set of amenities – covers up the costs of planning, filming, editing and post-production of this unique experience. The amount is also paying for the rent of beautiful locations that VR Bangers acquire for the needs of the recording session – luxurious places appropriate for a one-of-a-kind lifetime experience, chosen based on the needs of a given client.”

This sort of marketing is absolutely offensive and can be categorized as sex-negative. Instead of promoting a positive view of positive sexuality, it is akin to lambasting an entire generation of people. Apart from this, it also enforces the idea that middle-aged and elderly people don’t enjoy sex and find only younger people attractive. As with everything sexual, there is no one size fits all and it is completely judgmental in its statement.

As per a related report by TNW, “Furthermore, the product is incredibly niche, even for VR porn. VR Bangers could have the highest quality cameras and most talented staff in the world. At the end of the day, you’ll be paying at least $10,000 to have sex with your significant other while people direct and film you, just so you can then watch the videos back on an Oculus Go, Gear VR, or one of those cheap plastic headsets you slide your phone into. They’re almost certainly not creating a fancy, high-end room-size experience that you can walk around in.”
