Simulacrums all the way down...

You can already meet politicians, autograph books, have all kinds of kinky virtual sex, and complain about virtual denizens who spend their time in their virtual houses playing virtual video games. And now you can even get pregnant, virtually speaking (this from the creater of Fable, an Xbox RPG):
“There is the appreciation the wide world feels toward your character as he lives and fights in their world. There is the ability to make love and make babies. Yes, you can be both a man or a woman and if you're a woman, you can get pregnant. A first, he believes, for a main character in an RPG.”
