Brain Waves XR emotion-inducing VR system uses light to trick brain into experiencing arousal


A Canadian virtual reality (VR) startup company has developed an emotion induced-VR system for creating emotions and phantom touch sensations using light, and has teamed up with VR and sex doll experience company Oh My Doll to apply it to the sex tech sphere.

The company, Brain Waves XR, calls the VR process it has developed ‘Flow’. It works with light being emitted from VR headsets so they are interpreted by the wearer’s brain and elicit particular positive emotions, such as confidence or happiness, or touch sensations.

Rather than using haptic VR technology that delivers real-life sensations to the body synced up with emotion induced VR experiences, through haptic wearables, Brain Waves XR’s system ‘tricks’ the brain into feeling sensations. It uses light emission and visuals, such as images of ice to induce an icy cold sensation.

The VR company has been using the Flow technology at Oh My Doll’s experience venues in Montreal and Edmonton, where you can get frisky with a sex doll while wearing a VR headset. Brain Waves XR claims that at these venues, “people will experience an abundance of sex hormones and a positive change of their emotions by using VR porn that’s transmitted through Brain Waves XR’s Flow technology.”

The company acknowledged that this technology is in its relative infancy, and that it might be a while before people around the world are getting jacked-up on sexually positive VR thrills through the power of light flashes in their headsets.

Brain Waves XR claims, though, that if it continues to be developed, the Flow system could be beneficial in fields such as physical health, tourism, gaming, retail and psychological treatment, in addition to sextech.

“Conventional erotic massage parlors are outdated. We’re now on the verge of having a high-tech body rub industry; high-tech adult entertainment is going mainstream! So, the next time you go out with your partner, you might be headed to an adult playground instead of a restaurant,” the company says, somewhat optimistically.

  1. Hi Jamie,

    I’ve been in Edmonton for a work trip the last few days and just have visited the location that you wrote about here. I would say I’m a tech saavy person. There is what’s called the phantom sense in VR that some gamers would feel from time to time while playing VR games. So i can categorically say that their tech comes originally from an understanding of how the phantom sense works. Visiting Edmonton so thought why not to check this place out 🙂 I went on and booked a session. Honestly, it worked on me. Their hosting team did an incredible job. I was offered to choose between the intense flow and the admiration flow for my session. I got the demo of both. It is the same demo VR porn content when they showed both flows but for whatever reason i felt the action wild and intense for the intense demo and then felt admiration when trying the admiration demo one.

    It was like the pornstars were happy to have sex with me and i was enjoying their presence. One thing that I would correct you on is that a member of the staff told me that Ohmydoll and Brain Waves have been working together since 2019 in Montreal . It wasn’t a recent thing as they were testing it with customers until they could get what they offered today.

    So basically, it means Brain Waves developed their VR technology (phantom sense) through sex. That was something they mentioned and I wanted to share that info with you. Still, its amazing that VR porn drives innovation. To go back to my experience, the session went very well. The intense flow worked and i experienced a different kind of excitement for the 90 minutes i had booked. Its different from conventional sex but the pleasure was still there with the intensity.

    It’s a really cool concept, like a game but with sex! So, as someone that got the chance to try it, I think that there’s another way to purchase or think about sex and that high tech body rub fostered by VR and sex toys advancement might really appeal to younger generations. I see myself deciding between bringing my future GF to a restaurant or enjoying some fun time at a high tech body rub
