I’ve showcased the software program for creating 3D animations ‘Virt-A-Mate‘ a number of times on this site. Anyone who uses it or keeps track of its regular upgrades and additions (users can create ‘modules’ – such as for creating realistic looking hair – that other users can then utilize in their scenes) must realize that the future of virtual sex really is just around the corner. Ultimately, software like this will allow people to have sex with their perfect partner in virtual reality, even of course if that perfect partner is a real person, such as an ex-girlfriend, a celebrity, or even just the neighbour’s wife.

Now one of the top tech culture magazines online – VICE – have ran a piece Virt-A-Mate with the more than provocative headline – ”They Can’t Stop Us:’ People Are Having Sex With 3D Avatars of Their Exes and Celebrities’. Unsurprisingly, this has been compared to recent ‘deep fake porn’ concerns.

The writers asked some of the VAM community about the ways they incorporate images of their girlfriends into the scenes.

“I use it to fulfill my sexual fantasies or replicate sexual encounters with my ex-girlfriends,” one user commented on a subreddit dedicated to creating 3D adult content with Virt-A-Mate (also known as VaM), software for creating adult VR games and simulations. The user was specifically talking about Foto2Vam, a program that uses a photograph of a real person’s face to automatically generate a 3D model with the same face, which can then be used in VR.

“Foto2vam has enabled me to literally feel like I’m there again, i.e. getting a handjob/footjob from my ex looking at me with a smile, or having another ex ride me on the floor in reverse cowgirl in front of a mirror…the possibilities are endless,” the user said.

Another user on the same thread said they also use Foto2Vam to render ex-girlfriends performing sexual acts. They wrote that some 3D models turn out better than others depending on how many quality photographs of the person they can work with.

Other online news sites have also taken up the story

VICE magazine boasts that users who were offering to turn images of girlfriend’s into 3D avatars have already been deleting their posts. Hopefully Virt-A-Mate isn’t facing a crisis of the nature that forced the ‘DeepNude’ app to be pulled earlier this year. Creating avatars of ex-girlfriends or celebrities is of course one small part of the possible uses of Virt-A-Mate, and the company obviously doesn’t promote itself as enabling that. So the only consequence of this apparently ‘bad publicity’ is likely to be some welcome exposure. Unfortunately, it is likely we’ll eventually see some sledgehammer legislation against the creation of images of real people for use in digital sex worlds. My own view is very liberal in this matter. We really are moving towards a world in which the world’s of digital and thought (and private fantasy) are merging (literally so when the likes of Elon Musk’s brain/computer interfaces become adopted). Kneejerk re-action laws based on media hysteria will end up not only criminalizing thoughts, they will also straightjacket or even prevent ‘legitimate’ uses of these amazing advances in digital sextech.

And I’m aware that most other sextech futurists and commentators will not share my liberal view, and instead post inflammatory virtue signalling articles for clickbait.

In the meantime, let’s enjoy some of the amazing examples of Virt-A-Mate recently showcased by the community.
