“I’ve actually watched it. And it’s very realistic. It will definitely have a market. It will have a lot of clients, if you want to call them clients. But it’ll work, though I could see it being really addictive.”

“I don’t really know anything about it. I’ve never even heard about it which is kinda sad. But I feel the same way — people, if they want to, then sure.”

“It’s interesting. I’ve seen some videos on it and it’s kind of far out. It’s definitely a form of entertainment that people have all the right to enjoy if they feel so inclined. Naturally, the porn industry does have some issues — I’ve been reading some articles about mental development and addiction and such like that — but people are entitled to have that choice and, as adults, make whichever choices sexually they want to.”

“It’s just another excuse to not go out, if you have access to that stuff. It’s like videogaming. I just don’t get it.”

“I think it’s interesting but it’s kinda gross, kinda sad. It’s kinda nerdy, I guess. It’s cool but it’s weird.”

“Sounds interesting. I don’t know anything about it. I think it’s inevitable. I won’t comment on whether it’s good or bad, but I think it will update, regardless. So whether or not it’s embraced by people, I think it is an inevitable advancement of technology and porn is a part of that . . . ”
