I had originally thought of it jokingly, but I've discovered I'm quite serious about it. Human sexuality is a fascinatingly nuanced subject and nothing is really more intimate to our nature as a species. Sexual drive has been the drive behind technologies in the past and continues to be in certain areas. We've been waiting for it to realise itself in the vapourware technologies of the present for quite a while. Where will it be in 30 years and, perhaps even more interestingly, what will society make of it? Radical feminism and religious moralism have critiqued it in the past and continue to do so, but the proponents of a liberal treatment of pornography on the one hand and the political critics of sexual indulgence on the other are in something of a state of détente at present in the mainstream (the words of Andrea Dworkin and the teachings of Leviticus have little say in the current popular western point of view on sexuality). Will pornography or its related technologies ever be as 'good as the real thing' as technology and immersivity march on and, if so, will we decide that the real thing, ultimately, can only be real if we believe it to be genuinely so, as pornography itself by definition is not? I'll be interested to see.
