You might be familiar with the standard BaDoink site as a DVD archive with tons of content. Well, as other porn companies have, they too have gotten into the virtual reality game with BaDoink VR. I've got my Gear VR headset on and I'm ready to check it out and tell you all about it.
After spending a little time browsing the site, I can already tell you a few things. The first being that the site looks good and is easy to navigate. It's mobile-friendly too and you can download the videos directly onto your Samsung device, plug your phone into your headset and you're good to go!
At one point, you had to download the video onto your desktop first, then transfer it onto your phone. It was only one extra step, but I'm glad to see they've eliminated it and it's made things so much easier. The videos are also compatible with the Oculus, Vive and PSVR and come with a file for the Daydream View, which is the device Google released in 2016.
There are 156 videos right now. Most are 180° POV, but some are 360° ones that allow you to look around the room. This is very cool and having a few like that is great, but it isn't as immersive as the 180 degrees. The movies also come with binaural audio, which, depending on the device you're using, can really add to your experience.
Besides the hardcore action, I also came across different kinds of scenes. For example, one featured a babe reading an erotic story to the camera (you). She didn't get naked or anything, but it was still pretty hot. Now, that might not be for everyone, but I appreciate that they're doing unique things.
The site has something called Theater Mode that gives you hands-free viewing. The system tracks your head movements and allows you to select videos and play them just by moving your head. While this might not seem like a big deal for those using higher-end devices, for those using mobile phones and Cardboard headsets it could be very helpful. I say "could be" because it's still in beta mode. But they're working out all the kinks and hopefully it'll be a much better experience sooner rather than later.
Everything is exclusive, they're updating two to three times per week and for those living in the U.S., when you sign up they'll send you a free Google Cardboard. Sure, it's the most bare-bones of the headsets, but it's good enough to get into the virtual world and you can always upgrade to a better one later. There's a news section with a blog and a really informative help section. There aren't any bonus sites, but in the end, this is a great virtual porn site.
