Over the past few years, the adoption of VR has caused a porn revolution. Human perception of pleasures delivered by adult content has changed forever. Today, porn is experienced, rather than watched. The visual depth and immersion provided by VR headsets explain the skyrocketing popularity of the format.
According to the promotional campaigns, the viewer can now feel like an active participant in the scenes. Of course, VR porn does deliver the extremely enjoyable multisensory experience, especially with the use of haptic accessories. However, the perceived participation is not always so active, and here is why.
The Basic Principle
A high-tech VR headset isolates you from any background distractions. Put it on, push play – and you find yourself completely immersed in the digital world. Basically, the headgear tricks your mind into perceiving the scenes as real. Looking around will take practice, but you will quickly appreciate the wide perspective and the powerful sensations. So why is the viewer mostly passive?
In VR porn, you see your ripped avatar body from the torso down, but its position is usually static. Most commonly, it will be standing or lying on a bed while the partner will be pleasuring you. Although you may not control the avatar’s movements, you will feel like you are looking through the eyes of the actor. During filming, the effect is achieved by installing cameras at the actors’ eye level. As a result, male performers often stare at the ceiling while the girls do all the work!
The prevalence of 180-degree videos is understandable. When your virtual body is lying down, a wider perspective is simply irrelevant. Besides, the production of these clips is more complicated.
Strip club rules
You may focus on any part of the partner’s body but never touch. Even though, naturally, you feel like you could! However, you may use synchronized sex toys that will vibrate according to the movements in the video. This could be Pornhub’s Twerking Butt or one of the numerous Lovense, Kiiroo and Onyx models. The Japanese have even invented full-body sex suits!
On the plus side, you see your partners in their full-size human scale. Haven’t you ever dreamed of having sex with porn stars? Many users admit they prefer focusing on the partner’s face while they are on top. This “eye contact” makes the experience feel incredibly intimate.
In addition, there are different POVs (point of view). Some content is filmed specially for men, some for women, and you could still remain a passive onlooker. The stories are tailored to the needs of both genders, just like ordinary porn.
The sheer diversity of genres is stunning. Today, fresh clips are released daily, and biggest porn studios are devoting most of their attention to the format. In fact, Badoink has abandoned its regular filmmaking to focus exclusively on VR. Vast online databases include thousands of videos. Whether it is straight, gay, lesbian or group sex you need, you will be satisfied. From blowjobs to 69, and from BBW to BDSM, there are VR clips for every taste.
VR has taken sex simulation to a whole new level. Sensations delivered by VR-enhanced porn are simply unforgettable. The future of adult entertainment is here, so strap on your headset and enjoy.
