Virtual Reality Porn Is The Next Big Thing In Sex, Experts Say

Porn has been around for decades, but as we move further into the 21st century, getting your rocks off is getting a lot more advanced. Virtual reality is allowing viewers to feel like they’re actually taking part in the sexual “experience” and it’s slowly but surely taking over the industry.

The VR porn industry is doing big business. This year alone, it’s worth $700 million. However, experts say that by 2026, the industry will be worth $19 million. That’s not all that hard to believe considering that Pornhub’s 3,000 free VR videos get more than half a million viewers a day, according to the Daily Mail.

It’s mostly aimed at straight men at the moment. Because VR porn is still very new and because straight men are the biggest consumers of porn, most of the 3D stuff is pretty much aimed at their demographic at the moment. However, that’s likely to change over the years.

It’s not exactly cheap to partake in VR porn. That’s because the most basic standalone VR device to watch it runs about $400 or so, and that’s at the lowest. That’s a pretty big investment to watch porn. And while there’s a lot of free videos to watch online, if you want the top-tier stuff, you’ll have to shell out anywhere from $10 to $50 a month extra.

It’s a more immersive experience. As you can imagine, VR takes porn to the next level by giving the viewer a 180- or 240-degree view of the scene you’re in. Not only that, but the bodies are life-sized and make you feel like you’re actually taking part in the experience. Apparently, there are even toys that men can use that sync to the action on screen so they can feel what they’re watching the person on screen do.

Could VR porn be a threat to relationships? Tracey Cox says the answer is possibly yes. First of all, since there’s a level of reality to VR, it changes the viewer’s connection to the content. Not only that, but because it’s so realistic, it can lead to problems in a couple’s actual sex life, making men feel unhappy or uninterested in sex with their female partners because it’s so much better in porn.
