Vocativ Explores VR Porn for Women

Deep web journalism space Vocativ recently explored VR porn for women, asking the question: Could VR porn actually lead us to more realistic and relatable adult content?

 

Journalist Tracy Clark-Flory, writing for Vocativ, spoke to representatives from WankzVR and others in order to figure it out.

 

Clark-Flory first explains WankzVR’s new VR series, FemalePOV, filmed “from a woman’s viewpoint.” In FemalePOV, viewers occupy the perspective of a woman performer or, in gamer speak, avatar.

While the idea of porn for women, even in VR, is not new, according to Clark-Flory what sets this project apart is WankzVR’s effort to create informed content. They surveyed a variety of women in advance of creating FemalePOV, asking them what they’d like to see in their VR.

 

They found that the women who completed their survey wanted the tenor of their porn to land “in-between the hardcore gonzo cliché of porn for men and the gauzy soft-focus cliché of porn for women” — in other words, explicit action with a bit of intimacy.

 

WankzVR also found that women viewers were often “disturbed to see their avatar just lying there, relatively motionless.” Consequently, they use specific directing techniques when creating their VR in order to make the women characters look and feel more active and in control.

“From our research, this is something that the majority of women consuming virtual really content felt,” WankzVR told Vocativ. “When they step into the female avatar and are really not controlling any of the pace of the scene and there’s a man doing really whatever he pleases to them while they’re just being very passive, it was definitely creepy.”

 

Clark-Flory went on to assert that, “for all the bleak predictions around what VR porn might do to sex, there is the possibility that it will move adult content in a more realistic and relatable direction.”

It is encouraging to see this more critical engagement of evolving adult content, especially given the “VR porn will remove all humanity from sex!” sensationalism and rhetoric popular lately.
