What’s wrong with VR porn? The short answer is nothing. VR entertainment is alive and well, including its adult component.
And even picking up steam… A recent mashable article rolled up its sleeves to review the state of VR Porn.
Porn seems to be one of the big drivers behind VR adoption
The review touched on some important aspects that are still keeping this segment from becoming more entrenched. That said, we can argue that the raison d’être for VR porn is strong.
Mashable sinks its teeth into VR porn
Over the rather short gestation period, the industry has made great leaps, with all the major players keeping their fingers on the pulse of the growing VR porn community, their needs, ideas for improvements, compatibility and other issues.
The feedback just keeps on coming and at this stage it is fair to say that it is difficult to come across any serious VR porn haters.
It was always about the small tweaks to be made to enhance even further the user experience.
VR is here to stay
We at VR Sassy cannot but agree with Mashable’s first part of the point – that Statistics “show porn is a popular use of virtual reality, but it’s still nowhere close to being the dominant form of porn. … this is certainly due, at least in part, to the fact that very few people own VR headsets.”
In the adult industry art imitates life, while VR adult is porn on steroids
As a share of overall porn pie, VR may not be the dominant form for enjoying porn, but once we get down to the VR level, we get the sense that VR porn content trumps everything else.
In fact, the above-quoted statistics put the share of porn platforms within top VR websites at 60 percent — and traffic to those sites is up 50 percent in 3 months.
What’s more, when it comes to searching for VR, “vr porn” is the number one related search term, which beats out other big terms like “vr games” and “vr videos.”
“Indeed VR porn is firmly entrenched within VR, and while it may not be the dominant form of porn, it is certainly here to stay,” confirms one exec of a VR adult entertainment studio.
Can’t stop porngress …
The article’s author concludes: “VR porn is an interesting idea, and I enjoyed the videos I watched. But at the end of the day, porn just isn’t as compatible with the VR
format as it is with the computer screen. Certainly, it doesn’t enhance the porn experience enough (yet) to make buying a headset worth it.”
Brand considerations aside, Oculus Go is seen as an industry breakthrough, slashing the price of VR devices
Of course, there is no VR without a headset. The main benefit of VR porn watched with a headset is that it is way more immersive than standard porn
watched on a computer screen can ever be — and that is an understatement.
It has to do with the fact that it stimulates almost all of the user’s senses — in a very compact area concentrated just inches from the user’s eyes.
The result is a stunning 3D environment that bears an uncanny resemblance to real life, or even fantasy situations. Combine that with high resolution of the content
(readily shot in 4K or higher) and binaural sound — and you get the very best VR experience you could ever imagine possible. You are no longer watching, you are experiencing.
The price is right ….
We also believe that the hurdle of affordability of the VR headsets can – and already is being overcome. We can just omit the very crude 1st generation devices starting at just 16 USD.
Here, too the rule applies that you pay for the quality of the user experience. We think that investing in Samsung’s Gear VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or the very new
Oculus Go is well worth it. But there are many other good options to fit any budget.
