Since early 2014 when Ela Darling, an adult entertainment actress recorded her first VR performance, the world of VR porn has taken off. And even though virtual reality is probably not the first thing that comes to women’s minds when searching for porn, around a quarter of all VR porn views come from women.
Not only that, but since the start of the pandemic virtual porn views have risen significantly as it gave people a lot more than just a physical release. It helped with cabin fever and allowed people to spend time in the virtual outdoors, gyms or restaurants. It also helped those in long-distance relationships or people missing intimacy. But first things first, what exactly is VR porn and how does it all work?
What is VR porn?
VR (virtual reality) is currently the closest thing you can get to actual physical sex. Regular porn movies are “flat” and give the viewer a limited experience and a feeling of separation from the scene. In virtual reality things are a little different - you actually see the film around you in 180 or 360 degrees in 3D, so you get a fully immersive and interactive experience.
You need to get a special virtual reality headset in order to watch VR porn, but you can easily order them on Amazon. Prices vary depending on the quality of the product, but can range anywhere from 10$ to 1,000$.
The way it works is pretty simple, you put on your headset, connect it to a specially-made movie and watch your bedroom transform before your eyes. Most movies will be made either from a POV (point of view) perspective or from a voyeuristic perspective, where you can watch others in front of you. With VR porn made specifically for women, you would typically see a female body lying down (as if it were your own) and either a guy or girl (or both!) doing things to you. The great thing about POV is that it feels very realistic, but the downside is that your body doesn’t move in the video.
But it’s not just “dirty” porn that you can get in VR, a lot of it is designed specifically for a female audience. For example, a little while back BadoinkVR actually did a free series called “What Women Want” as part of their Virtual Sexology series. This was a virtual reality experience for sex education and therapy, which aimed to bridge the gap between education and entertainment and help women enhance sexual pleasure and performance, both solo and with their partners.
What’s even more exciting is that you can use different sex toys to enhance your viewing experience. In this article we’ll list a few different options, including sex toys that actually sync with the movie you’re watching!
The clitoris is an incredible organ full of sensitive nerve endings and most women need direct clitoral stimulation to experience an orgasm. If you’re not interested in following your VR experience in a realistic way and just want to “get off” whilst watching something sexy, then a vibrator is the way to go. If you’re looking to get a truly good product that will last you a lifetime, then the Womanizer is definitely worth investing in.
The Kiiroo collection
For those of you who love new toys and cool technology in general, the Kiiroo dildos and vibrators will be an exciting addition to your collection. These can be used via bluetooth if you’re in a couple, or can even sync with your VR porn, so you can get an even more realistic experience! The vibrations and pulsations of the toys change depending on the scene you’re watching, so you can quite literally enjoy the ride!
Get a little kinky
If you’re into a bit of BDSM, then you will love adding some toys to your virtual experience. Imagine watching a hot scene where a gorgeous guy or girl is tying you up to the bed so you can’t move and have to take everything they’re doing to you. As you’re watching this, you could tie yourself (or get a partner to tie you up - even better!) to really feel like you’re part of the film.
Stimulate your G-spot
According to statistics, only 25 percent of women are consistently orgasmic during vaginal intercourse, but many more are able to reach the peak through self pleasure and G-spot stimulation. There is a heap of toys available just for that, so experiment with different ones - from hard curved crystal ones to more life-like vibrating ones - there’s bound to be one that presses the right button!
