Virtual reality sex-work: phantom touch and "tricks."

Abstract : This poster explores a Japanese virtual reality (VR) sex-work service-X-Oasis-user experience (UX) design for avatar-mediated sexual encounters. Quantitative data was collected, participant observation and interviews were conducted. The results reveal that the UX allows sex workers to perform their activities in VR. Moreover, it relies on sex workers' capacity to experience phantom touch and "tricks" to awaken guests' body parts as the latter cannot move their bodies in the X-Oasis virtual environments. By engaging directly with the engineers and co-founder of X-Oasis, this poster paper could spark discussions among industry professionals and enhance our comprehension of VR intimacy.
