Virtual pornography?

So why did people drop out quickly? Why would I have dropped out quickly?

Even if I didn't know about the Milgram experiment, I would have felt very uncomfortable. The virtual female figure looks young, attractive and vulnerable. The experiment has pornographic overtones - I am playing the role of a virtual sadist. Not for me thanks!

Substitute an expressionless wooden cube with a Dalek voice and you might get different results.
