A controversial new approach to sex therapy sees adult entertainment company BaDoink teaming up with human sexuality professor Hernando Chaves to create Virtual Sexology, a virtual reality experience designed to increase pleasure and performance for individuals and couples.

Chaves is a human sexuality professor, Askmen.com sex columnist, and the former president of the Western Region for the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) with a Doctor of Human Sexuality degree (D.H.S.) from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality (IASHS).

His work with sex therapy clients has focused on anxiety reduction, mindfulness, challenging sexual discomfort, sensate focus exercises, and pleasure education using insight-oriented psychotherapy methods.

Virtual Sexology features porn star August Ames, who guides users through a series of exercises – including breathing techniques, Kegel exercises, and the start/stop method.

BaDoink says this approach brings edutainment to the porn industry, bridging the gap between eroticism and education.

While many people remain skeptical that users of Virtual Sexology are seeking sex education or therapy from the experience, it raises interesting questions about how virtual reality technology can be used for sex therapy.
