Japan VR Porn Industry Overview

Japan has one of the largest adult entertainment industry and porn consumption market. It is no exception for their VR porn industry.

It is one of the most vibrant adult VR sectors in the world. However, most of the Japanese VR porn content are almost exclusive to its domestic market for several reasons. With the exception of Adult Festa Japan, the best Japanese porn website for VR that operates in English!

First, the number one adult distribution platform, DMM, has made their VR titles exclusive for those accessing from a Japanese IP address. The only way to bypass this geofencing is via a virtual private network (VPN).

Secondly, the moment you stumble upon DMM’s site, you will discover that English language is not an option. Although DMM launched their English site, R18, but the site does not carry any VR titles at the moment. It makes visitors from outside of Japan extremely difficult to purchase content on their platform. The site requires several steps to sign-up an user account and enter personal information.

Third, payment method is also another major barrier. Many Japanese VR porn sites only accept Japan-based payment method that requires personal identification. Surprisingly enough, most do not accept major credit card, PayPal, or Bitcoin.

Japanese VR Porn Industry Limitations

If you have gone through all the trouble to bypass the geofence and successfully download a title, you will most likely be disappointed with the censorship embedded into each video.

Due to Japan’s unique culture and law regulation, pornography produced by Western producers are generally deemed as illegal in Japan. It is illegal to distribute adult content that expose genital areas of performers. We know it might sound ridiculous to Western audiences, but the law is strictly enforced in Japan.

In other words, western-made VR porn cannot be distributed in Japan or other Asian markets with similar law. One of the potential methods for Western VR porn producers to bypass this law is to add a cover up for the genital area during post-production. If you are one of the Western adult content studios, we’d recommend to consult with legal entities before you proceed.

But wait, there are still few options!

Several Japan VR porn studios have successfully made it to the Western world. Adult Festa VR is a well-established Japanese VR porn platforms launched back in 2016. Similar to DMM, the Adult Festa VR platform consolidates and distributes content from over 40 Japan adult VR studios. In 2017, Adult Festa TV launched the first Japanese VR porn site in English with over 1,000 VRporn titles, making it the first Japan based VR porn site available to Westerners. Below is a SFW Youtube 360 video from Adult Festa.

JVPorn is another studio that somehow bypassed the Japanese regulation and produced uncensored content. The studio is also collaborating with Western studio, VR Bangers, to release their footages as part of the VR Banger’s membership and pay-per-view program.
