As we all know, porn has been around for decades, however VR porn has only been around for a few years and is quickly gaining popularity in the adult sector. Millions are purchasing virtual reality equipment to watch VR porn videos and engage in VR sex fantasies because of its life-like feel and novelty.

As with any new trend, there will be pros and cons, and there have been some concerns over the use of virtual reality in general, but we believe that when it comes to virtual reality porn, the benefits greatly outweigh the dangers.

First of all, how does VR porn actually work?

For those of you who are new to the concept, in order to actually watch some adult entertainment with a VR twist, you will need some type of head-mounted display such as the Oculus Rift or the Google Cardboard. The quality will, of course, depend on the device you’re using and on the quality of the film.

The great thing about it is that you can watch it from various perspectives. You can be the lead character who gets involved in the action from a POV (point of view) perspective or if you prefer the voyeuristic angle, you can just observe the scenes from the side. You can also use toys to heighten the experience and some are specifically designed to be used in a VR environment.

Now that you’re all caught up, what are some of the benefits of VR porn?

Dive Deep into Your Fetishes with No Judgment

Ever had that awkward conversation with your partner when you ask them, “so, what kind of kinky stuff are you into?” and they reply, “well, I’ve never told this to anyone before… but I’ve always wanted to try doing it doggy style out in the park, where no one can see us… how naughty is that!” And you’re sitting there thinking, “oh damn, how innocent, I can’t possibly tell them now about my desire to be tied up from the ceiling and gangbanged by at least 10 people with some of them pissing on my face…”

It’s great when your fetishes coincide with that of your partner, but sometimes they don’t and that’s perfectly okay. A lot of us don’t actually have to do something physically to enjoy it, so VR porn is that perfect balance because it feels so real!

You can choose any scenario you want and act it out as if you were actually there, though there are, of course, some limitations with movement as usually the protagonist has to stay completely still in order for it to feel life-like. This is also a place where you can’t be judged for your desires and you are free to experiment with absolutely anything and anyone!

Make a Long-Distance Relationship Work for You

There are many struggles when it comes to long-distance relationships, and lack of sex for what may often be long periods of time is definitely high up on the list! Cheating is not cool and sometimes video chat and sexting just doesn’t quite do the job. VR porn is the closest thing you can get to having sex while your physical partner is miles away. You could even do it at the same time and talk on the phone as you’re doing it to feel that little bit closer to each other.

For now, we are limited to pre-filmed videos but imagine what it could be like in the future where a couple could share a real virtual sexual experience. This means both parties will be able to feel and see everything the other person is doing, without having to resort to phone sex.

You Can be Anyone You Want

The magic of VR is that you can transcend roles and genders, so if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to, for example, be a lesbian for a day even though you wouldn’t dare think of it in real life, VR porn is the place to be! This is also a great place for people who are transgender and are thinking of getting surgery to change their sex. VR porn can give them a taste of what it’s like to be in a different body and could help them make a decision.

People with physical disabilities also indulge in VR for similar reasons. For these individuals, the real world can be challenging, cruel, and may have limitations when it comes to sex. However, in a VR world, none of those things matter and they can have anybody they choose. This can be seen as a kind of sexual therapy that has a fully interactive experience.
