The question isn't whether you can watch porn in VR, it's whether you want to.

Let's be honest, it wasn't long after we started to see VR pop up in homes that it was followed by questions on whether you could watch porn in VR. That question was quickly answered in the affirmative. However, as time goes on and we're seeing more and more immersive VR experiences hit the ground running, the second question has to be whether watching porn in VR is worth it.

That's why we're here, to let you know the pros, the cons, and whether porn in VR is actually worth it for you.

Pick your experience

The first thing that you need to decide it what kind of adult app you want to run with. There are a few different kinds of porn in VR, and any one of them might be up your alley. You can watch full on videos, where you are in the role of someone in the porn. There are 360 degree videos which show you an image that you can look around at.

It's no surprise that if you do a quick search on Google, you can see over a dozen different websites that offer a variety of adult VR experiences. These include websites like Badoink.com, VirtualRealPorn, and Pornhub.com, just to name a few. On each website you can find something a little bit different, and we're seeing more videos and experiences added on a regular basis.

Be Ready for Immersion

One of the things to really remember about VR is that watching Porn isn't even remotely the same as what you might be used to from a television. Instead it's an entirely immersive experience. You'll be a part of the scene, instead of watching it from a distance. That means that you probably want to take a few precautions, since you won't be able to keep an eye on your surroundings.

Just about everyone has had the unfortunate experience of being intruded on while checking out adult content. At least in that case you could see when someone came into the room. That isn't the case with VR porn. Instead, you're entirely inside the video that you are watching. Between headphones, and your headset, it's ridiculously easy for someone to sneak up you without you ever noticing their presence. Which means of course that some precautions, like making sure you won't be disturbed, or that there is a lock on your door is a very good idea.

The truly stellar experience comes from 360 degrees.

Being able to be a part of the scene elevates things to an entirely new level. Being completely surrounded in 360 degrees of video means that you can look around, you can trick your brain into thinking that you're really there. While some videos are only for 180 degrees, the truly stellar experience comes from 360 degrees.

One of the really interesting parts about this, is the way that your brain starts to believe that you are a part of what is happening. Your skin flushes, you start to really become a part of the experience. It's a bit different for everyone, but this definitely happens. Especially if you are watching a video that flips your switches. For some this can induce some awkwardness, due to how different it is from your normal porn viewing. These people are now right in your face, and that can be just as disconcerting as it can be exciting depending on your perspective.

There's also something to be said for having an illusion ruined by seeing the camera operator, but that's another issue entirely.

It can be fun with company

Now, just because you are watching your porn on your VR system of choice, doesn't mean that this needs to be an activity that you decide to try out on your own. If your partner is interested, you can easily make this a team activity. There are a few different ways to do this, and each of them has their own specific pros.

The easiest way to use adult VR with a partner comes when you try to sync up what is happening in the video with actual actions. Essentially your partner will mimic the video in real time. It's a bit complicated, and will take some practice, but lets assume practice is why you're here and move on. It's definitely a way to spice things up in the bedroom without much by way of toys.

That's right there are sex toys that up with your VR headset.

There are accessories out there for those who want to go that route though. That's right there are sex toys that pair up with your VR headset that really let you experience everything that is going on in real time. Right now there are a half dozen different devices that you can use, depending on how you'd like to do things. This goes from sex toys that connect via Bluetooth dongle, to specific sensors that you and your partner wear to enhance things.

So is it worth it?

That brings us back to where we started. Is porn in VR actually worth it? That really depends on the person. If you require secrecy for your adult entertainment, then it might not be your best option. That's because when you're watching porn in VR, it's an immersive and involved experience.

However, if you're willing to not see what is going on around you in the real world, it's an awesome way to get your adult entertainment. It's only going to get better from here. We're still barely past the starting line for where VR is going to go, and what it's going to be capable of doing.

Whether you want to spice things up in the bedroom with your partner, or you're looking for a better way to get your porn, VR is a great way to do it. Have you checked out porn in VR? Do you have more questions? Pop into our comment section and ask away!
