Adult VR: barriers and future development of virtual porn

2017-12-06

VR is actively used in marketing, it has a bright future in the video game industry, but one of its growth area, the porn industry, is hushed up.

The first pornographic VR-content was created by Ella Darling back in 2014. Today, there are more than half a million views of such videos on PornHub daily. And there are more than 2.6 thousand VR porn films on PornHub in general.

Porn in virtual reality has good prospects and can even capture the overwhelming majority of the entire market. Ian Paul from Naughty America (one of the largest adult entertainment companies in USA and a pioneer in adult VR) believes that VR will become the dominant force in the industry.

Employees of the first service of VR-pornography VRSmash emphasize on the important social role of this content. For example, if you combine virtual reality technology with gadgets that provide tactile effects, couples will be able to have sex even over a distance.

However, there are some issues in combination of VR and tactility even when considering the existence of such devices: too little of the content is compatible with it. VR technologies do not have uniform standards, so optimizing content for different devices is a time consuming process. 

At the same time, public interest and technological development can help virtual porn overcome all barriers.
