What is Virtual Porn?

So what’s all the hype about? And what can people who engage in cybernetic sex expect?

Visitors to the 2016 Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas found out exactly that for themselves at an exhibit that was operated by Holo Girls Virtual Reality, a startup that specializes in the production and distribution of virtual reality adult films.

Wearing Samsung Gear virtual reality goggles, visitors were given an opportunity to sample virtual porn for themselves courtesy of a virtual porn experience that had been filmed using a viewfinder that is widely available for just $99. As soon as they put on the glasses, viewers were transported to a virtual porn set in which they were the main stars of a pornographic encounter. They could even look around the room to enjoy three-dimensional perspectives of the “events” as they unfolded.

Although the manufacturers of the most popular virtual reality headsets have not rushed to promote their products as suitable for VR porn viewing, HTC’s Vive glasses, the Oculus Rift, and Samsung’s Gear VR have all been named as ideal accessories for those who want to partake in some on-screen action.

Of course, all this comes at a price. Virtual reality headsets can set you back by as much as $799, while accessing the content from sites like Naughty America costs in the region of $24.95 per month for a monthly subscription.

A Virtual Reality Mob Beyond Control?

The rising popularity of virtual reality porn was never so prominent as it was in Tokyo recently when a virtual reality exhibition in Japan had to be canceled amid pending crowd control issues.

The Adult VR Fest 01 had been designed to introduce the Japanese to the latest technologies and accessories on offer from major players in the virtual reality porn industry. However, the event attracted such attention from inquisitive would-be virtual porn fans that the authorities canceled it due to fears that the growing crowds would become unruly if they were unable to gain access to the exhibition.

Those lucky few who did manage to sample the technologies on offer were observed wearing virtual reality headsets while engaging with a range of prototype devices, including one that aimed to replicate sexual intercourse.
