Virtual sex. Pornographic application of virtual reality, showing a man about to "fondle" his computer-generated virtual partner, displayed through the goggles ("eyephones") in his headset & simultaneously projected for general consumption. Virtual, in computer parlance, describes equipment or programs that assume one form yet give the illusion of another. Contact with the virtual woman is allowed by means of a 3-D sensor in the headset that transmits data on the wearer's position in space, & by a similar device on his wrist. Fibre- optics sensors along the fingers of the rubber dataglove also report to the computer.
