Enter the Fascinating World of VR Adult Movie Industry
Porn Actress Ela Darling shot her first ever VR adult film back in 2014, which was even before the VR adult film industry got kickstarted. A industry pioneer and forerunner. Ela shot her first VR porn scene in a University of Maryland college dorm, wearing a cosplay R2-D2 bodysuit, the scene was recorded in a way as if she was chatting to a real person, so the audience would be immersed in VR from a first person POV. There was no other actor involved, it was just Ela and the camera rig, it was a sexy, seductive masturbation scene, namely one of the first VR adult films ever made!
