If you haven’t yet gotten the chance to try virtual reality technology, all you really need to know is that it’s a lot like a weekend in Las Vegas. There’s lots of cool stuff to look at, but nothing you can actually touch. All the people around you seem almost real. And if sunlight happens to creep in, the illusion is broken. (And if you’ve never been to Las Vegas, all you need to know is that it’s not nearly as cool as you think.) So it’s hard to believe that it’s taken until now for someone to formally bring the two wholly fabricated environments together: Porn studio VR Bangers is partnering with British headset manufacturer AuraVisor to offer VR pornography to Las Vegas tourists in their hotel rooms, where nobody can see how ridiculous they look, Engadget reports.

The “VR Bangers Hotel Experience” will soon be tested out in Las Vegas hotels, where customers will be able to slip on a handy wireless five-inch 1080p display headset—essentially an Android device built into a set of light-canceling goggles—and step into a fantastic world of computer sex with a simple $19.99 credit card payment. “You will then choose a girl or guy of your choice and see your hotel room replicated in the VR headset, making the experience much more realistic,” according to a company press release. “Next you will hear a knock on the door—in the virtual reality world—and the girl or guy will come into your room in order to enjoy an erotic or sex experience with the viewer.”

What happens next is up to you, assuming what you want is among the limited options that have been pre-programmed into the device’s software. And remember: what happens in an immersive computer-simulated environment, stays in an immersive computer-simulated environment.
