Without fear of exaggerating, the single most significant and successful innovation to come through the adult industry has got to be the introduction and rise of virtual reality porn. Never before have I seen a new and unique niche become so popular so quickly! When VR was first adopted by sites like BaDoink VR, Wankz VR and others back in early 2015, it was met with some pretty tough skepticism, with most industry people and critics deriding it as yet another fad. But here we are today, nearly 3 years later and the number of sites in our VR category has climbed to over 50 – and that number isn’t going to stay put for long!

Straight Out of Sci-Fi

Can you believe that such an incredible advancement in porn and technology met with disdain and criticism? I mean, it’s virtual reality! It’s the stuff of sci-fi books and straight out of the movies. All you need to do is stream or download a scene, strap on your headset and you’re no longer watching porn on a screen, but immersing yourself in a fantasy with a 180° 3D visual that takes over your entire field of vision. I realize that virtual porn scenes don’t exactly duplicate real sexual experiences, but honestly, it’s the next best thing. And it’s all thanks to the early adopters and producers of hardcore content for this futuristic medium, the technology behind the headsets themselves, and enthusiastic users like me, you and all the rest!

Don’t Worry, It’s Nothing Like 3D Porn

I almost understand why some people responded to VR porn so negatively. It did, after all, seem all too reminiscent of 3D porn, which was a big commercial flop and ultimately proved to be the very definition of a fad that a lot of people no doubt spent money on and it yielded, well, let’s just say, less than sexy results. But that’s because people were watching 3D effects on regular old monitors. VR headsets are basically like motorcycle helmets (or at least that’s how I feel whenever I put on my Oculus), as they’re the crucial element that’s going to enable you to have the most hardcore ride of your life!

Have You Checked Out the Oculus Go?

As much as I’m a fan of all the different VR sites we’ve got listed on RabbitsReviews, I’m just as much as enamored with the various headsets. For the longest time, the Oculus Rift and HTC VIVE stood at the height of what virtual reality could afford us regarding having the most immersive experience. But in the past few months, Oculus released their standalone model (the first of its kind), the Oculus Go. No more tethered wires or clunkily stuffed smartphones hanging off our faces. Just select the scene and you’re there! I can’t wait for the next iteration of virtual reality headsets, because if it’s going to be anything like the way things have been progressing, it’s going be off the proverbial hook.

New VR Niches All the Time

The headsets aren’t the only part of the VR porn equation that’s continuously undergoing dynamic changes. When VR first hit adult sites, most the scenes it depicted were generic run-of-the-mill hardcore ones. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But there are so many other niches that could do well with a little virtual upgrade. If you look at our category, you’ll see sites that offer immersive experiences within cosplay, MILF, teen, trans, gay, golden showers, stockings, fetish and a whole lot more.

Imagine the State of VR Porn in 2033

Who knows, maybe by the time it’s RabbitsReviews’ 30th anniversary in 2033, virtual reality porn scenes will have taken on a whole new form, making the experiences we have today look a bit like Mattel’s old-timey view master with the circular reels of still pictures – if you’re old enough to remember those. But no matter what the future holds, I’m pretty impressed with what VR tech has afforded us already. Up until now we’ve all been merely watching porn, but now we’re coming as close as ever before to actually experiencing it.
