According to online forums, virtual reality users are uploading old photos of their ex and incorporating them into virtual sex and virtual dating scenarios.
"If you think having virtual sex with your ex is a good idea, you're virtually out of your mind. This is horrible," Dr. Ish says of the concept, noting this behavior points to some serious unresolved emotions regarding your breakup.
The Doctors and Dr. Ish also note this is a major invasion of privacy and along with being very unethical -- not to mention creepy!
Instead of focusing on an avatar of your ex, Dr. Ish stresses someone should work on having closure and allowing yourself time to heal following a split. The panel also notes this is idealizing someone and not a real representation of who they truly are. A healthier way to get over someone is to purge them from your life, which includes all images and following them on social media, Dr. Ish says.
