Virtual sex. Pornographic application of virtual reality, showing a man "mauling" his virtual conquest provided by his headset and data glove & an unseen computer system. Virtual, in computer parlance, describes equipment or programs that assume one form yet give the illusion of another. Here, the image of the woman is provided by the system through goggles in the head-set; contact is effectively faked by fibre-optic sensors in the black, rubber data glove, which relay informaton on aspect and movement of the man's fingers. Photographed at Autodesk Inc., USA.
