VR porn will never take off until it solves these 3 problems

Curated via Twitter from Mashable’s twitter account….

You can watch most VR porn videos from a traditional third-party perspective, but the big sell of the idea is that you can also watch them from the point of view of of the person (typically a man, though you can find female-centric VR porn titles if you dig) being pleasured.

Our overall take: The videos were well made and engrossing, but we found a few problems that the format probably needs to fix if it wants to gain mainstream recognition, both as a medium for porn and as worthwhile VR content. Such as…

Perhaps the solution to this is to only watch porn where the subject stays in the same position the whole time.

I, along with several veteran porn-watchers, watched a shameful amount of VR porn from Pornhub and prominent vendor Reality Lovers to determine whether, when the VR revolution hits, VR porn is poised to really take off.

And if you don’t live alone, it’s very important to be able to turn down the volume when others are near or pause your porn video at the first sign of an intruder.

Statistics show porn is a popular use of virtual reality, but it’s still nowhere close to being the dominant form of porn.

And let’s be honest: Anyone who’s buying a headset just to watch porn isn’t probably down with the big expense of a Rift.

We’ve all skipped the beginning of a porn video to get to the good stuff — awkward acting and thin storylines are just about the least sexy thing there is.

Certainly, it doesn’t enhance the porn experience enough (yet) to make buying a headset worth it.

I hope VR porn continues to thrive in niche communities, whose sexual or technological preferences attract them to the format.

When that time comes, there’s no reason VR porn couldn’t become a cultural phenomenon.
