How VR Is Slowly Taking Over The Porn Industry

how VR is taking over porn industry

It’s no secret that virtual reality is making waves when it comes to new technology. Everyone needs to pay attention when one of the world’s largest companies (Facebook and Meta) invest heavily in something.

Though VR is still gaining traction in mainstream media and culture, it already dominates one area – adult content. Many adult sites are turning to VR porn as a top option, and the numbers are on the rise.

What makes VR porn so much more appealing than traditional 2D porn, and is it that much better?

VR’s Role in Adult Entertainment: A Brief Look

At this point, it’s a cliche, but everyone knows that porn websites dominate the web. Even though the chunk is relatively small (only 4 percent), users have to use special programs to filter out adult content.

Compared to traditional web pages, VR websites are much more popular.

About 60 percent of all websites in 2017 dealt with adult content, and traffic was only increasing.

With VR becoming more mainstream, the percentage may have decreased, but that’s only partially.

Most users are males, according to usership statistics. The majority of male VR users have accessed porn sites using their devices. Women reported the same habits at 57 percent, whereas men reported them at 80 percent.

With over 31 percent of the market, the United States takes the top spot when it comes to countries of origin.

With 8%, the UK is second, followed by Germany with 7%. In contrast to other industrialized nations, Japanese VR content is relatively underused, despite its popularity.

This skyrocketing demand is pretty impressive, especially since these sites only emerged a few years ago.

People seem far more comfortable seeking out sensual and sexy VR experiences than they might think.

So What Are The Benefits Of VR porn?

In spite of the initial interest, do users prefer VR content over traditional porn? Since there’s no data on it, it’s hard to say, but anecdotal evidence suggests that once you go virtual, there’s no going back.

Why does VR adult entertainment appeal to so many people? Taking a look at some of the pros and cons, we find the following:

Pro: Immersive Content – When you feel like you’re in the same room as someone else getting fucked, you’re more likely to get into the mood.

Most VR scenes are shot from a point-of-view, although not all. Watching voyeuristic scenes on a flat screen is far less immersive and enjoyable  than watching them with a VR headset.

CON: Online porn is super convenient, so all one has to do is drop their pants and open a new tab in their browser.

Using synced sex toys, however, makes VR porn a much more complicated experience.

PRO: While VR sex scenes with toys take longer to set up, the experience is so much more enjoyable. The rise of teledildonics has made it easier for women, but there are some toys for men as well. The scene feels more real when everything is synchronized.

CON: Using lube is inexpensive, and even if you don’t, the cost of masturbating by hand is low. Although high-quality VR headsets can cost up to $300, toys are not included.

A transition to VR sites makes a lot of sense for tech-savvy individuals.

The effort and investment are well worth the reward. So even though there are still some hurdles to overcome, the world of VR porn is taking over…just watch!
