My instincts immediately told me to tear the glasses off my head; I peeled them off and looked around.I mumbled something like, "shit." They laughed and told me to go on, and maneuvered the robot arm so it was adjacent to my pelvis.If I pushed the arm with my hips, sure enough, the phallic cone responded onscreen, thrusting inward.

Since then, they've updated the software and the graphics of the simulator, and are continuing to promote robot-assisted virtual sex.

"I think in the future, the virtual real will become more real than actual real sex," Tenga CEO Tsuneki Sato told me.

He'd come by the Motherboard office to demonstrate the "future of masturbation," as he put it. As soon as we sat down, he encouraged to put my head into a pair of VR goggles, where a female avatar was bent over the side of the bed and a rendering of Tenga's sex tube protruding from the screen where the er, gun would typically be in a first person shooter.

Sixth Star’s professional team provides cost-efficient programs for the cruise, corporate, resort, casino and special event markets.

In the future, some people will choose to spend Valentine's Day alone, having virtual sex with a 3D avatar with the help of a fully responsive robotic assistant. They're also promoting a jerry-rigged amalgam of software and robotics that's easily the closest you can come to having physical sex with a video game.

Tenga is a Japanese manufacturer of disposable male sex toys—they make cylindrical "masturbation aids" that somehow don't seem as repulsive as the Fleshlight (perhaps mostly because they're not called a fleshlight).

Currently, most small farmers are trapped in an economic environment in which they are small producers in commodity markets. By giving them greater ownership of the value chain we can greatly stabilize and increase their incomes.
