1. Pick your VR gear

From low-end to high-end, eager VR porn consumers are finding more accessible options for virtual reality headgear. Below are lists of what’s available and their price.

Head-mounted displays for smartphones

On the more affordable side of the spectrum, there are smartphone-compatible headsets like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR. For them, you generally download a video that can be viewed through an app or VR-specific player. Just snap your phone into the head-mounted display and strap it around your head to jump into the erotic action.

  • Google Cardboard ($5 to $40)
  • Samsung Gear VR ($99)
  • Zeiss VR One ($120)
  • Homido VR (69.99 €)
  • FreeFly VR  ($74.70)

On the more hi-tech and expensive side, there is the Oculus Rift as well as other soon-to-be-released headgear like the HTC Vive and Sony’s PlayStation VR headset.

Full VR headgear

For the experience to be worthwhile, you’ll need a PC with a powerful graphics and video card as well as processing unit—which can cost just as more or more than the headset itself. However, Sony’s upcoming device is an interesting option because it only requires you to have a PlayStation

  • Oculus Rift ($599)
  • PlayStation VR ($399)*
  • HTC Vive ($799)*
  • Fove VR ($249)*
  • OSVR ($300 – developer version only)

2. Choose your VR porn content

Several online pornography sites, new and old, are embracing virtual reality. Together they have released hundreds of VR porn videos with a decent range of erotic content for varying tastes. Most are pay sites, while some offer free videos.

If a VR headset is already available to the public, you can bet that most VR porn sites will support it. However, as many new headsets are slated for consumer release, most sites are preparing to be compatible with them as soon as they ship out—so your choice of headgear shouldn’t deter access to any particular VR sex video provider.

VR porn sites will either suggest you download its own free virtual reality player to watch content or that you use a third-party player like MilkVR or KolorEyes. Most sites require users to download full videos, as streaming will likely cause buffering issues due to large file sizes. But streaming is still an option on a handful of sites.

There’s no question that virtual reality headsets make watching pornography feel like you are truly in the scene. Adult VR sites are even adding binaural audio and 360-degree filming to enhance the immersive experience even more.

VR porn sites are also starting to support touch-feedback sex toys. These devices synch up with the action in their videos, giving the physical sensation of actually having sex with the adult performers.

Kiiroo’s interactive male sex sleeve, the Onyx, is currently compatible with VirtualRealPorn [NSFW] and BaDoinkVR’s [NSFW] content. While VR Bangers [NSFW] and HoloGirlsVR [NSFW] say they are working with Kiiroo to add support to their videos as well.

Lovense’s male and female sex toys, Max and Nora, are also supported by VirtualRealPorn. So no matter your gender, you can become part of the action.
