Oculus Rift Porn As The Next Big Thing?

Oculus Rift Porn As Game Changer

Why Oculus Rift Porn Could Be a Game Changer

If you are like most men, when you heard about the successful Kickstarter – and subsequent $91 million investment – in a new virtual reality head-mounted display called Oculus Rift, you thought, "Man, there is going to be some awesome porn for that." Hey, this is the human race – if we can figure out a way to sexualize something, we do it. And virtual reality technology is just crying out for some good porn apps – it doesn't take a genius to see why Oculus Rift porn could be the next big thing.

From the looks of things, there is going to be some awesome porn. Oculus Rift, which completely immerses a viewer in a virtual reality world, offers a 1080p resolution, positional tracking, wireless operation, and tracks which way you turn your head. All of that adds up to a larger-than-life, hyper-real experience that offers a lot more immersion in your entertainment – and thus, porn – than just sitting back and passively watching a video.

Here are four reasons why Oculus Rift Porn could be a game changer:

1. Interactive porn that is actually, you know, interactive  Unlike many "interactive" porn titles where you decide a porn star's actions through a DVD remote control, or ask a live performer to fulfill certain fantasies with a chat window, Oculus Rift is built primarily for gaming – meaning it is designed to be immersive and elicit a lot of interaction from you.  This means everything from sex simulators to hentai games just got a whole lot more realistic.

2. Oculus Rift will soon be compatible with peripherals.  One Reddit commenter, upon hearing that there would be Oculus Rift porn, said "Add a Fleshlight and say goodbye to the human race."  You only need to check out this video of an interactive sex simulation to see what that commenter was talking about. 

 

Here, we see a man interacting with the VR demo for a company called Tenga – which, if you didn't know, is a Japanese company that makes Fleshlights.  This is a pretty far cry from fapping while hunched over your laptop watching something on YouPorn – this is a full-out, full-body sex simulation currently in production.

3. The porn industry is already on board.  Unlike the Internet, which was a massive disruption to the porn industry (and took a lot of companies a long time to catch up with,) the Oculus Rift is a technological development that the world of adult entertainment is prepared for.  There are already several sites dedicated to porn for the Oculus Rift, even though the consumer-oriented version of the Rift is still in development.  This means that by the time this thing launches, there will already be a huge variety of titles involving (hopefully) your favorite porn stars and porn categories on launch day.

4. The experience is qualitatively different from other "innovations."  Unlike, for instance, 3-D porn, which required a lot of really expensive equipment just to have things "look" slightly more realistic, Oculus Rift makes things feel a lot more realistic.  Check out this post over on the developer's page, featuring a stripper giving you a lap dance.  Porn for the Oculus Rift is a difference of kind, not degree.

All of this adds up to a pretty compelling conclusion of why Oculus Rift porn could be a game changer:  Virtual Reality is a completely new way to consume and interact with pornography.  Just as the invention of the camera replaced older, smutty comics and paintings, and then the video camera revolutionized porn in the 1960s and 1970s, the Oculus Rift will completely change the way we interact with adult entertainment.
