Self contained satisfaction

Access your VR porn untethered with the VRotica headset

VRotica brings you a VR headset, adult content, and a marketplace all in one.

One of the first questions that I — and plenty of other people — asked when VR first started to be introduced was how long it would take until VR porn showed up. Well, it didn't take long and at this point giants like Badoink VR are regularly churning out new content for connoisseurs of adult entertainment to enjoy. Of course, to access those videos you need a VR headset, and there's always the issue of how you access your porn.

So when I first got word that there was a new stand alone headset built specifically for porn I was interested. Vrotica is a small, mostly nondescript headset that gets you access the videos you want to see, from the producers you're already used to. I spent a few days getting acquainted with this headset, and I've got everything you want to know here!

Smooth lines

The design of VRotica is pleasant to look at, a compact headset done all in black with smooth lines. The front has a reflective plastic that may remind you of the visor from earlier models of Gear VR. With ports on the bottom, focus at the top and buttons on either side, it looks like a fairly generic headset. Except for course for the branding of VRotica sensual reality across the top of things.

On the left side of the headset are four buttons. The two bottom buttons will control the volume, the top front button turns the headset on and off, and the remaining button will return you to the home screen when you have a video open. On the right side of the headset, there are two buttons and they are the ones you'll be using to interact with VR. The top button works as a back button, and the bottom button is how you confirm things. The buttons work well, but without any way to tell which one is which purely by touch, I definitely shut down my headset a few times by accident.

The top of the headset is where you'll find the two dials that adjust the lenses inside the headset, and at the bottom is where the charging port and headphone jack both live. One of the few flaws with the design was how shallow the face of the headset was. Wearing glasses with the headset was a fairly uncomfortable experience, and it felt like my glasses were being jammed into my face. Without them on it wasn't a problem, but this is definitely an issue bespectacled folks ought to be aware of.

No PC or phone required

VRotica is a self-contained headset which specifically means you don't need to jump through any extra hoops to access your NSFW content. Instead, that's what this headset was built to deliver. It connects to a self-contained marketplace once you've set up the Wi-Fi and logged in to register your device on a computer. Once you've done that you'll be able to see the full collection of content that VRotica has collected.

For now, their collection has four major production studios they are working with and you may recognize them. Badoink VR, VR CosplayX, VR Bangers and Vixen VR. For now, there isn't much free content that is available, and each video will run you between 3 and 8 credits. You can purchase credits through the web interface once you have logged in, and a credit roughly equates out to a euro. The selection isn't huge, but considering this headset just released I'm pretty confident their library of videos is only going to grow with time.

Simple interface gets you to the action faster

Once I'd gotten my headset synced, it was time to take a look at using the headset for its intended purpose. The navigation menu appeared in front of me on a floating screen, but if I looked to the left or right then I could see some scantily clad women on a boat with me. VRotica uses a point and select method for navigation, which worked well with the two button combination on the right side of my headset.

The menu was easy to navigate through, although as the library gets bigger hopefully we'll see a search function integrated. For now, it's easy to scroll through what is there and what you're looking for. Video playback and quality was decent, and I didn't have any issues with lag or buffering. There were a few issues getting it set up and staying connected, but not while I was actually watching videos. It seemed like the headset was just slow to react to what I was trying to do. When my menu refused to load after a few minutes I had to disconnect from Wi-Fi and then reconnect, but at that point, it was good to go.

An interesting solution

Overall the VRotica headset is pretty solid for what it is. By having its marketplace and content integrated with the headset old worries about hiding NSFW content are mostly erased. Now it's just making sure that nobody finds your headset up at the top of the closet.

While it doesn't have a super extensive library yet, it's got a solid start. At 200 Euros ($235) it's a bit on the pricy side, but that's mostly because you're trading a low price tag for a wireless headset built for Porn in VR.
