VR porn will never take off until it solves these 3 problems

, we may finally be emerging into an era where everyday, non-gamer folks own headsets.When that time comes, there's no reason VR porn couldn't become a cultural phenomenon. But to appeal to the masses, it should be at its absolute best, and should be able to bring unique benefits that traditional porn can't.

I, along with several veteran porn-watchers, watched a shameful amount of VR porn from Pornhub and prominent vendorReality Loversto determine whether, when the VR revolution hits, VR porn is poised to really take off. Our overall take: The videos were well made and engrossing, but we found a few problems that the format probably needs to fix if it wants to gain mainstream recognition, both as a medium for porn and as worthwhile VR content. Such as...

The positionsYou can watch most VR porn videos from a traditional third-party perspective, but the big sell of the idea is that you can also watch them from the point of view of of the person (typically a man, though you can find female-centric VR porn titles if you dig) being pleasured. This sounds cool in the abstract, but in reality it causes problems.

For this kind of video to feel realistic, you need to put yourself in the same position as the subject, whether they're lying down, sitting in a chair, or whatever else. Depending on where you are, this can be difficult, particularly if the physics of your chair, couch, or bed make the subject's position tiresome to maintain.

But even if you find the perfect viewing angle, maintaining that illusion requires changing position whenever the subject does, which is certainly more finagling than most people want to do while masturbating.Perhaps the solution to this is to only watch porn where the subject stays in the same position the whole time. But come on, that's just boring. If I want 25 minutes of missionary, I can do that IRL.

The formatThere's a reason you hear all the time about"VR experiences" but never hear about"TV experiences." We watch VR because we like not just the thing we're there to watch, but to experience what'saroundthe thing, what's under and above it, and what's behind it.

But the viewers and I all agree: That's not why we watch porn. We don't go to Pornhub looking to"experience." We go to get aroused, and (very specific fetishes aside) we couldn't care less whether the sex that arouses us happens in a bedroom or on a spaceship.

None of us felt that being able to see the ceiling, floor, and walls that encased the bedroom where the sex was happening added to our experience with the sex. In fact, at some points, they were a bit distracting.The ability to skip the bullshitWe've all skipped the beginning of a porn video to get to the good stuff — awkward acting and thin storylines are just about the least sexy thing there is. And if you don't live alone, it's very important to be able to turn down the volume when others are near or pause your porn video at the first sign of an intruder.
