Virtual Thrills: The Future of VR Porn

With its ability to put users in sexy simulated environments, virtual-reality porn is being touted by some as the next phase of XXX. We strap on the headset and explore this brave new world of adult entertainment.

For as long as humanity has developed new technologies, people have sought a way to enhance their sex lives with these wondrous developments. 

Case in point: virtual reality (VR), which places users in an immersive simulated environment via a headset and has plenty of applications that don’t involve sexual pleasure. These applications run the gamut from educational and therapeutic purposes to various industry uses to, of course, military applications. However, in the entertainment realm, porn seems to have beaten out both the video game industry and the non-porn film industry when it comes to exploiting VR technology. 

To get the skinny on how VR porn is edging its way into the adult entertainment industry, HUSTLERMagazine.com reached out to several prominent porn sites that carry VR content. The general verdict: VR represents a significant leap forward for adult entertainment, even if it still has a way to go in attracting a broad audience. 

Generally speaking, VR technology entered the porn scene around 2015 and has been gradually becoming more popular since then. Alex Hawkins, vice president of popular porn site xHamster, notes that the genre is still growing toward its full potential audience-wise. 

“VR content has been an incredibly popular niche, and one that most users have only started to explore. There was an initial burst in 2015. But the response and audience for them is like nothing we’ve ever seen,” Hawkins tells HUSTLERMagazine.com, adding that “about four to five percent of our audience says they regularly watch VR content.” 

“What we see is that porn consumption is driven by technological access. As soon as someone gets a VR headset, porn is one of the first things they search for.”
