“I assume I’ll be having sex today.”
Of course, the game has nothing to do with sex, but O’Brien’s theory is that VR is headed in one direction: sex. Therefore, the entire video demonstration features O’Brien taking every opportunity to figure out how his VR experience can somehow turn into sex, from fiddling with the privates of a dead guy to casting a lewd eye on a virtual tentacle monster (“That I could have sex with”).
We know how excited some of us get by seeing sex in VR, but it probably won’t really become a thing, even for O’Brien, until we get full-body haptic suits so you actually can feel all the totally wrong things you want to do in the virtual world. When that happens, all the VR jokes will cease, because people will be too busy finding out just how freaky they really are in the Matrix.
