Recently we posted a funny video about Getting Caught Masturbating in the (not so distant) Future. We found it in an interesting thread on Reddit. The topic of the thread was if you would consider it cheating on your partner if you use sex toys or prosthetics while watching virtual reality porn.
It’s an interesting topic as it makes you think about your personal freedoms and what your and your partners boundaries are. Some people consider it cheating, others don’t. Most consider masturbating while watching porn not cheating. Add a sex toy, is it still not cheating? Now add watching porn in virtual reality, maybe an interactive experience with a computer generated character, boundaries become unclear. What about having interactive virtual reality sex with a human or a webcam girl?
Technically you’re not cheating, you’re not actually having sex with another human, but your partner might think otherwise. As this new virtual reality technology advances more and more people are going to have to talk about this with each other. We think talking about your feelings, needs and wishes to experiment with your partner is best. We’re not judging but we think if your partner feels it’s wrong for you to watch virtual reality porn and use a sex toy while you want to you should not feel bad about it, just talk about it. It’s not wrong to masturbate, this is just a new form. Hey, maybe you could have sex together in virtual reality one day? Maybe you both want to look like you’re 20 again and have a go at each other? Nothing wrong with that!
What do you think? Is watching virtual reality porn considered cheating? Where is the boundary between personal freedom and respect for your partner? Is it wrong to do this or should you feel bad about masturbating in this fashion? We’d love to hear your opinion, let us know in the comments.
