Did Virtual Reality Hit It Big in 2016?

from Twitter

Did VR Hit It Big in 2016?

The emergence of VR seems to be a big hit and steadily improving elsewhere but not so much in the U.S. It’s not surprising that such technology would be lagging behind in the States, especially when it comes to VR porn.

The technology would likely advance further if tech gurus were more apt to look at it from a different angle. Rather than looking inward they could look at this emerging technology in a way that helps them understand what the public wants.

So did VR hit it big in the year 2016 like some proposed it would? While many households may not have a VR headset, there is still a ways to go before it’s considered mainstream. The cost of the headsets is just one obstacle for many as they can vary in price but many are expensive. Once more affordable options are released it’s likely to reach mainstream but highly doubtful until these decreased costs happen.

Of course, then you have the problem of available content for virtual reality systems. It’s rather lacking as VR technology is relatively new still. Unlike a 4K television that can successfully display traditional SD and HD content, VR headsets won’t allow you to watch just anything.

Another challenge, and possibly the largest one facing VR and its attempt to become mainstream is the complexities involved; both psychological and physical. VR sickness is an example. Our visual systems as human beings are rather complex so the best visuals on a VR headset could easily cause a viewer to feel nauseous. Prolonged exposure to VR in any form could definitely be difficult for people to handle.

Of course, VR technology is still relatively new and has a long way to go before it could possibly become mainstream but the possibility is not extinct. Virtual reality technology does face many issues and obstacles right now that could take some time to figure out. Right now, VR headsets are slowly evolving and improving but the main, basic experience for VR users has yet to change.

It’s hard to say if VR headsets will take off like many presume they will or if a new technology debut will be required to make it mainstream.

A Discussion Regarding VR Porn

When you think of virtual reality it’s hard not to bring VR porn into the discussion. While some may find it uncomfortable, it’s actually quite hard to avoid with the advancements of VR happening in the tech industry today.

The porn industry has played a role in various technology introductions. The adult entertainment industry is definitely a competitive one and one that uses technology to get ahead of the competitors. It’s not hard to find a wide variety of content at the click of your mouse. Free, inexpensive and costly content is easily accessible by anyone looking for some adult entertainment.

Virtual Reality and Porn

Since the release of VR headsets you’ll likely notice PornHub is one of largest names mentioned. This is because they have gotten behind the advancement of VR and have already created a category on their website for VR videos. These videos also typically come from publishers focused on VR.

More and more people are searching for VR porn via Google search, so says Google Trends. Even 3d porn has become a term searched quite often. We don’t see this search trend tapering off any time soon.

Different Degrees of VR Porn

Because VR porn is relatively new there are different degrees currently being offered. The 360-degree videos are some of the easiest in terms of production, but lacks the depth perception users long for. 360-degree model scanning is another degree of VR porn being offered where the scans are imported into a virtual environment. The models then become 3D representations for the user to enjoy. Motion is lacking in this degree of VR porn but is definitely more immersive than the 360-degree videos.

Last but not least, pornographic animation. Animated porn is a more selective interest and appeals to a limited market but from a VR perspective it offers great immersion.

Professional & Amateur VR Porn

The most significant degree of VR porn is video but you’ll already notice many sites coming to surface that offer VR cam videos. The animated porn is already appealing to a lot of its targeted market but likely won’t see much growth outside of this market. The 3D VR porn scan degree is in early development and could potentially grow to appeal to many more users.

It’s a Win-Win for the VR Porn Industry

Regardless of what content users find to be more enjoyable, the porn industry will benefit. This is likely why it’s embracing virtual reality and already working on different angles to satisfy their own market.
