For many, technology is a source of inspiration. And somehow there are always people who want to use new technologies for sex as quickly as possible. That is nothing new. We saw this with photography, film, video and more recently also with VR, just to mention some examples. One of the technological environments where sex doesn’t seem to get through is gaming. The biggest players in that field (Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft) are anxiously stopping that. That is why you have to rely on hackers for the combination of sex and gaming. Hackers such as qDot, who make it their mission to investigate the possibilities.
Buttplugging with qDot
Kyle Machulis calls himself qDot. He is a computer scientist who is trying to combine internet technology and sex toys. Through his YouTube channel ‘Buttpluggin with qDot‘, Machulis takes you on a search for areas where many other developers don’t dare to go.
In one of his videos, he discusses a presentation he gave in 2019 at the ’33rd Annual Meeting of The Society for Literature, Science, and Arts’ for the University of California.
In the presentation Machulis tells about his idea to use non-sexual video games in a sexual context. For that, he uses – or rather modifies – the technology of existing games to interact with sex toys. Now modding is quite common among gamers and hackers, but the interaction with sex toys … nah, not so common.
He himself calls it ‘Subversive haptic spaces’. And that could be a real game changer (pun intended, I think).
In the video, Machulis gives a few examples of how that would work. He tells how he has been able to connect the Burnout car racing game to butt plugs with haptic technology. He was inspired by the book Crash by J. G. Ballard. That book is about people who get sexually aroused by watching car accidents.
Machulis also explains how a game like Rocket League (also a racing game) could be linked to the sex toys that webcam girl Riley Nicks uses. Many webcammers have the option to make their sex toy vibrate with every donation (links to a Dutch post, but with a NSFW video that kinda explains what I am talking about). Machulis thought it would be cool if every point you scored in a game could lead to the same result.
Healsluting: BDSM & gaming
Machulis goes one step further. Healsluting is when there is an erotic power relationship in role playing. You could also apply that dynamic in RPGs like Overwatch. If you play an online RPG, you can (with the knowledge and consent of your game partner) give it an interesting new twist to further explore your sexual kinky needs.
But even if it is less kinky, you can combine gaming and sex. For example if you have a long-distance relationship. How nice would it be to play Beat Saber online together, while each point you score activates the sex toy of the other. Special combinations (convos) could become commands for the toys. And that could produce a whole new erotic experience.
The whole idea is that the combination of sex and technology takes place primarily between the ears. Making more use of fantasy and imagination could lead to entirely new ways of sexual interaction with others.
