In my last post about sex bots and VR sex, there was some talk about how governments might start banning internet porn. That might be something that various governments try to do although I doubt such laws will pass. Even if such laws do pass, there are still plenty of ways around it. For example, porn servers could be located offshore. Not all countries would ban internet porn. Even if governments tried to ban porn server IP addresses, there are tools to get around them like proxy servers and TOR.
If you want an example of how porn servers would survive when a government bans them, take a look at The Pirate Bay which still survives despite all of the legal challenges against it.
With better and better 3D graphics, it will be possible soon to create porn on your computer that looks completely realistic. It won’t matter if you can’t download internet porn. You will be able to create your own porn on your own computer. This is what will eventually become VR sex. Technology in general in moving to an area where you can create things yourself bypass any laws that might exist in the process. Recently, a gunsmith was able to build a gun using parts created by a 3D printer. One of those parts was the lower receiver of the gun which is the legally controlled part. With a 3D printer, anyone will be able to create guns without a license bypassing any laws that might stand in the way in the process. There is going to be no stopping this since governments aren’t going to be able to ban 3D printers. There is just too much money behind them and too many businesses who want to use them to reduce manufacturing costs.
It’s similar with porn and VR sex. The movie and TV industry wants to be able to computer generate photo realistic movies and TV programs. The video game industry wants to create photo realistic video games. Both of them need virtual humans indistinguishable from real humans to do this. Those industries will spend the billions of dollars required to get there. They already have spent billions of dollars on this just to get us to the point we’re at now with computer generated TV and movies and video games. Like how the government isn’t going to piss off industries with many billions of dollars behind them to ban 3D printers because they can be used to make guns, the government isn’t going to piss off the the movie/TV industry and the video game industry just to be able to ban porn.
These technologies are coming and in the end, government isn’t going to be able to stand in the way.
