Intro to VR Porn – Does Virtual Reality Porn Tickle Your Pickle?

    Virtual reality is happening! The technology trailblazer Oculus Rift will launch in March, and with Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR, you can experience the virtual reality with just your smartphone already today.

    Is the porn industry lacking behind? Certainly not. Options for immersive virtual reality sex videos and games are popping up left and right.

    The technology and services are still young and quite a bit of navigation is required to find the good sites and tools. Read on to learn how to enjoy virtual reality porn.

    What is VR Porn?

    In virtual reality, you're immersed in an artificial, digital environment, where you can explore and interact with your surroundings like you would in the real world. A little bit like in Matrix, but not yet that advanced.

    To achieve the immersion, virtual reality headsets are used. A headset produces a stereoscopic image that makes everything look 3D. The headsets also have additional hardware for head tracking, enabling you to move your head to observe your environment.

    Virtual Reality Explained by Marques Brownlee

    Many existing porn sites have side-by-side stereoscopic content, but to experience real VR porn, you need to go to specialized sites that have virtual sex videos with 360-degree viewing, higher resolution, and head tracking - all which enable a more immersive experience.

    Adult 3D games and virtual communities have also started supporting the virtual reality headsets. Are you looking for 3D virtual sex with a real partner?

    With teledildonics - interactive masturbators and dildos - the virtual reality interaction can reach new heights. The pairing of both visual and tactile feel will create a wholly new experience for us all.

    How to Experience Virtual Reality Porn or Sex

    For a virtual reality experience, you'll need a VR headset and compatible content.

    There are two low-cost options for VR headsets available right now. Both use your smartphone as the viewing device and the headset that holds the smartphone basically just has lenses for 3D and a place for your phone.

    The high-end, dedicated virtual reality headsets come with high-resolution displays and other dedicated electronics, but also require a powerful computer or game console in addition to the headset.

    Google Cardboard

    Google Cardboard is the cheapest way to try virtual reality. For less than $20, plus a smartphone, you can experience what virtual reality has to offer.

    Basically, Cardboard is just a piece of foldable cardboard with lenses attached. Putting it together is simple and it works. It really does! I've used mine for a couple of months now.

    You can find a number of different Cardboard models on Amazon. I would recommend choosing one which has a strap; keeping the headset in place with your hands is not fun in the long run.

    Google Cardboard works with both Android and iPhone smartphones.

    Samsung Gear VR

    Samsung Gear VR is like a high-end version of Google Cardboard. It has a solid plastic body, strap for comfortable fit, and its lenses can be adjusted to your eyesight. Gear VR retails for $99.

    Gear VR has some additional hardware for better performance. It comes with a gyroscope, accelerometer, and proximity sensors, but it still requires your smartphone for viewing the virtual reality content and apps.

    The major limitation of Gear VR is that it works only with newer Samsung smartphones: Galaxy Note5, S6 edge+, S6, S6 edge.

    Once a week I comb through two dozen sex toy companies and sex shops to find the best deals on male sex toys.

    Oculus Rift - The High-end Virtual Headset

    Oculus Rift has been leading the charge for the whole virtual reality industry. Its consumer version is now finally ready to launch. Oculus is currently taking pre-orders and will ship at the end of March, 2016.

    Oculus Rift is expensive. It retails at $599. In addition, you will need a high-end computer to run it. According to Oculus, they are not making money on Rift hardware. Still, the price tag is pretty hefty and will allow only the real enthusiasts to buy one.

    As Rift is a standalone headset, it doesn't require a smartphone to work. It has its own high definition display, sensors for head tracking, and is made with high-quality parts. The Rift package also includes a headset, Xbox controller, external camera for tracking the headset, and a remote controller.

    Other high-end virtual reality options don't yet have solid release dates or prices announced. HTC is working on HTC Vive and PlayStation on PlayStation VR. Both devices should be available during 2016.

    Teledildonics and Virtual Reality

    What is teledildonics? Teledildonic devices, or long distance sex toys, allow partners to feel each other over a distance in real-time. This is achieved with connected sex toys, typically a dildo and masturbator, which send tactile data to each other. For example, if a dildo is stroked, then the masturbator does its best to recreate the sensation by squeezing and stroking.

    What is teledildonics by KIIROO

    Teledildonic toys are not only for people in remote relationships, but they can also work with interactive videos, virtual sex games, and cam girls.

    Technology for teledildonics is still quite new and it will take some years before it reaches a level where everyone wants it. But in the meanwhile, check the devices introduced below. Some of them are already quite good.

    Kiiroo

    ​Kiiroo long-distance sex toys probably have the highest profile of all teledildonic toys. Their solution consists of a Pearl vibrator and Onyx masturbator. Pearl has 5 sensing rings that send information over to Onyx when they are touched. Onyx has 10 rings that will squeeze the penis inside in response to how Pearl is touched.

    The Onyx masturbator is made with a Fleshlight masturbation sleeve and it can also be used in manual or automatic modes, like any Fleshlight, when it is not connected to Pearl vibrator.

    Boost Immersion and Pleasure with a Male Masturbator

    While masturbating without any extras is a lot of fun, using sex toys can boost the intensity and pleasure.

    Fleshlight is one of the best male masturbators available. They have a wide selection of intense, tight, realistic, porn star, gay, fantasy, etc. masturbation sleeves. See the Fleshlight Guide to find out what would be best Fleshlight for you.

    If you're more into sex with men, the Fleshjack masturbators can be a great option.

    If you would like to know more about how to buy a Fleshlight, see the Fleshlight buying guide.

    In addition to long-distance sex, Onyx can be used with compatible cam girl services, porn video, virtual reality porn, and sex game sites. The following sites support Kiiroo:

    ​In all the above sites, look for the Kiiroo logo over the video or live stream to find the supported programming. Fleshlight's Kiiroo page has a list of Kiiroo-equipped cam models who are currently online.

    If you're curious to learn more about Fleshlights, check out my MEGA GUIDE to Fleshlights.

    Lovense

    ​Lovense's solution is similar to Kiiroo. It's made of a Nora vibrator and Max masturbator. The toys are interactive and can be controlled remotely.

    The Max masturbator has a build-in air pump that squeezes and pulls, as well as a vibrator for more sensations. The sleeve is made of skin-like silicone and has a varying texture with bumps and rings.

    Currently, Lovense Max is supported by Virtual Real Porn, where the masturbator's contractions and vibrations are synchronized with the action on the videos. Other virtual reality services don't yet support Lovense.

    VStroker
    VStroker virtual sex adapter for Fleshlight

    VStroker is an add-on to regular Fleshlight masturbators. It monitors the movement of the Fleshlight and uses the data to control action in the porn flick you're watching. You can trust slow or fast, or pull out, and the action in the video follows you.

    VStroker requires an application and special content that you need to download to your PC or Mac. The video content is interactive POV (Point-of-View) content - similar to LifeSelector - that you need to pay for.

    Vstroker support is also built into adult virtual world games Red Light Center and  3DX Chat where you can control thrusts of your character with the VStroker.

    How to Find VR Porn and Games

    VR porn comes in many shapes and forms. You can enjoy immersive videos, have virtual sex - even with another person - in sex games, or get intimate with cam girls.

    Virtual Sex Videos

    The number of VR porn video sites is growing fast. Typically these sites offer videos with 180 or 360 degree view, 3D, and head tracking. These features allow viewers to move their heads around and see what is right in front of them. Look down, and you'll see what's taking place in your genital area, or look right to get a better view on that girl-on-girl action there.

    Most of these films are POV (filmed from viewer's Point-of-View angle) and provide a very close and immersive 3D experience. POV makes sense because you're observing the world through your virtual reality goggles and everything is happening around you like it would in the real world.

    Most of the sites support Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and Google Cardboard headsets.

    The quality virtual reality porn video sites require you to pay either for download or subscription. Finding good quality VR porn for free is quite hard. I did some research and you can find a list of good resources below.

    Sex Like Real, VR Smash, and Find VR Porn have collections of VR porn film trailers from the premium VR video sites.

    Kink VR has a small number of kinky VR porn videos.



    How Is the Virtual Porn Video Experience?

    Example VR Video - by Virtual Real Porn

    How a video looks on the VR headset before it's converted to 3D (note: above image is not in full resolution) - image by Virtual Real Porn.

    ​In my experience, the streaming VR videos always have lower picture quality. For good quality VR videos, you need to download them first. File sizes are fairly large. In Virtual Real Porn, a 20-minute video file is 1-3 GB for Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR, and 2-5 GB for Oculus Rift.

    When watching the videos, you will see the actors really close up. When looking up, you'll see their faces. When looking down, you'll see their breast first and then the genital area.

    It can be quite arousing, for example, when an actress is doing a blowjob and looks straight into your eyes. The feeling that she is really looking into YOUR eyes is something you cannot achieve outside virtual reality (except with a real person).

    With this super-close-up point of view comes the biggest benefit and drawback of the current technology. The upside is that you're going to feel totally immersed and personal with the actor. On the downside, especially in the goggles using a smartphone, you're not going to experience a HD video. The video quality can be good, but it is still a little blurry.

    The picture quality is limited by the resolution of your smartphone. You're looking at the display from a very close distance, which makes every pixel separate. Another limitation for picture quality is the fact that for the 3D effect, the video needs to play twice in the same display, one video for each of your eyes. This effectively halves the number of pixels available for the video.

    All in all, the experience is very pleasing, intimate, and arousing. Still, I wish the resolution would be higher. I've only tested with Google Cardboard. I expect the picture quality to be much better with Oculus Rift as the videos for it have a higher resolution.

    VR Porn Games

    Video gaming is an area where virtual reality fits extremely well. From the beginning, games have been used to demonstrate immersion and capability of virtual reality devices. Therefore, it is only natural that porn games have also jumped into the virtual reality realm.

    3DX Chat and Red Light Center

    3DX Chat Virtual Reality Intro Video by 3DX Chat.

    Both 3DX Chat and Red Light Center are virtual worlds for adults. Players can socialize with other players, have fun, for example, in nightclubs, hotels or on a beach, and create their personal homes.

    Games have extensive adult features. Player avatars can be customized allowing all kinds of role plays. The players can have sex with each other, or fulfill their fantasies with computer controlled bots.

    ​3DX Chat currently supports the Oculus Rift VR headset and VStroker interactive masturbator.

    Red Light Center supports Oculus Rift VR headset as well as both Kiiroo and VStroker interactive masturbators.

    Virtual Sex Mobile Games and Apps

    Both Google and Apple do their best to keep their application stores family friendly. Therefore, finding VR porn games or apps is challenging and the quality of the apps isn't that good.

    The main app for viewing virtual reality porn on your smartphone is a VR player. I've been using FreeVRPlayer on my Android smartphone. The app has been good so far.

    Another VR player app that many have been recommending is AAA VR Cinema Cardboard 3D SBS. FreeVRPlayer is available for both Android and iOS. AAA VR Cinema is for Android only.

    Another option for viewing VR porn through an app is Mikandi which is a third party adult entertainment application store for Android. They offer all kinds of adult apps, games, videos, and comics. Mikandi also has a platform for application developers to develop and sell their own sex apps.

    Mikandi's virtual reality choices are still quite limited. I found the most number of apps when searching by "cardboard". This gave me four apps: 2 where comic girls are dancing or stripping; one virtual sex game; and one weird hentai-augmented video player. Clearly VR porn apps still have a long way to go, but I'm sure there will be much more to see in the close future.

    I rather watch my porn in 3D. Do you?

    Cam Girls Doing Virtual Reality

    3D virtual reality and teledildonics will open doors for more intimate kind of cam girl businesses. The legal limits of these kinds of services - some call virtual reality sex prostitution - will be explored for sure. Presently, that is not yet a big concern though. The technology is still quite limited, but there are a few pioneers exploring the opportunities.

    • CamSoda has a weekly 360 VR cam girl show. Their show is 2D only.
    • VRtube has a live show in 3D VR. They seem to be currently on a hiatus, but promise to return early 2016.
    • YouMeCams and Flirt4Free cam girl sites are skipping the 3D aspect of virtual reality but offer the teledildonics experience - with Kiiroo - instead.

    How to Learn More

    There are a lot of small websites talking about virtual reality. The following are the ones that I've found most useful when looking for information.

    Conclusion

    I'm excited about virtual reality and the new ways it allows us to experience not just porn but games, films, and long distance human interaction.

    Pioneers in the field have created the first virtual reality services. Some of them are already quite impressive, some will need a lot more work before coming mainstream, and I'm sure there will be more services that we haven't yet thought about.

    Jump in and try virtual reality out. With Google Cardboard, it is easy and cheap. You will be richer after the experience.
