What is VR Porn?

Watching virtual reality porn requires putting on a VR headset – or a smartphone that fits into a hat.

Instead of observing people in the third person, the scene is shown from the point of view of one of the actors.

Actor Brett Rossi, who has starred in adult VR movies, told us in 2018, “You’re the only one talking. With VR porn, it’s a first-person view, so you have to be the entertainer.

“You have to pretend someone’s there. There’s someone there, but you have to pretend they’re communicating with you.

“But really, the male talent you use is a prop, they just keep an erection. They cannot speak, they cannot move, they must do everything.

“They can’t touch you most of the time, they’re just there. So you just use it for your own benefit.”

VR porn evangelist Lisa Moore told us in 2018 that the amount of detail captured poses a challenge for the performers and that “every detail of the performance is magnified”.

According to Lisa, female models are usually the “most natural in front of the camera”.

She added, “If they’re uncomfortable or uncomfortable, VR brings that out.”

In 2017, award-winning adult film star Sasha Gray said VR porn was “too lifelike” and vowed not to use it.

How is VR Porn made?

Also known as 360 camera porn, VR porn is shot in point-of-view (POV) style.

There are not many cameras involved in the production of VR porn like in standard shoots.

Brett said: “There’s a male partner, he’s usually on his back.

“And the camera is, I would say, level with the viewer so it feels like it’s in the first person perspective.

“Some companies don’t want men to touch their female counterparts because they don’t want it to disrupt the viewer’s reality.”

Brett says performers need to stay in an “invisible triangle” to get the best visual effect.

Creating a VR porn can also be a much longer process than typical porn productions.

Brett added, “I’ve worked on a couple of sets where it’s only five hours, but it’s definitely a lot longer than a standard boy-girl scene.

“Because a lot of time is spent setting up the camera, measuring male talent and making sure the camera is right.

“If you touch it while filming, you screwed everything up.”

Because VR technology is so new, many companies are still struggling to master the format, and it’s not just in the porn industry.

Lisa said that “setting up the right scaling, stitching videos together, and maintaining a stable shot” are critical.

She added: “If you don’t get this right, nothing else matters.

“An interesting subject that pertains to the medium [point-of-view] With VR videos, there is only one camera angle for a given scene. So if you make a mistake, there is no backup angle to switch to.

What do you need for VR porn?

To watch VR porn you need an internet connection and a headset to create the immersive experience.

You can build or buy cardboard headsets that allow you to position your smartphone in front of your eyes, or there are more expensive options.

But VR platform SexLikeReal’s Alex Novak told Mashable that “no smartphone experience is good,” while VR Bangers’ Kacper Zieliński told the publication that while smartphone setups are cheaper, they’re “only 20 percent of the potential of VR porn provide”.

At the moment, using the technology on phones can be quite difficult, there are battery life issues, fast forward, pause and other basic play buttons that are still quite difficult to interact with, and you may need to download special apps to play VR games. play videos .

There are dedicated VR devices that offer a more satisfying experience.

One of the most popular options, the 128GB version of Oculus Quest 2 costs around £299.

It’s easy to use and all you have to do is navigate to the porn site of your choice and open a VR video to get started.

However, since Oculus is a Facebook brand, you must have a Facebook account to use it.

There are various others you can use that don’t require it, with Apple rumored to be launching in 2022.

VR experiences are becoming more sophisticated, but will they become mainstream in the porn world?

Brett isn’t convinced, arguing that 2D porn will remain the norm.

For example, she blamed the reluctance of companies like Sony to not allow porn content on the official PlayStation VR store.

However, Lisa is much more optimistic about the format’s prospects: “If the price goes down and the quality goes up, there will be little reason for users to stick with traditional porn.

“That’s because VR can do everything standard video can do and everything else you can think of.

“Streaming videos on the internet used to seem like advanced technology, now it accounts for almost all adult content consumption.

“I think we’re going to see the same thing with virtual reality technology.”
