Piper Jaffray, an investment bank and Asset-Management company estimates the adult industry as the next biggest VR producer by 2025 (next to video games and NFL-related message). This now directs to an ideological phrase: The more reasonable, the better, right? But in a reality that is virtual, one should take necessary precautions.

This has gotten the attention of some leading psychologists as the adult entertainment is now looking forward to providing sex like the “real thing”.

Therein, lies the wrong interpretation: The type of sex act portrayed in pornography isn’t all that unrealistic to begin with because it’s proclaimed as getting progressively like the ‘real thing. “Porn literacy is more important than ever” says Marty Klein, author of, His Porn, Her Pain: Facing America’s Porn Panic with Fair Talk About Sex. “Buyers of porn, as well as their companions, require to comprehend how it’s created, and how what’s described is not what real sex is similar to.”

Is there nobody who’ll think about the children?

Though VR porn is still in its developmental stage, it quickly became desirable to its patrons and new clients alike. Credits to companies like Samsung and Oculus Rift (owned by Facebook) who have been developing state-of-the-art headsets that is used for viewing VR content which are now given free of charge by some websites like www.vrsmash.com.

Without a doubt, this has given more intimacy to the sexual experience eliminating the third person point of view and diving its viewers in the action.

Upon using an iPhone 5 with a Homido VR headset for a sample test run, it has been concluded that viewing porn videos on the gadgets used were somehow limited. Nevertheless, overall experience was still fairly impressive.

Neil Malamuth, a professor from UCLA, has been studying the effects of pornography for decades. “I had been many surprised the level to which the movie sensed more private than any standard porn I have ever viewed before” says Professor Malamuth after testing VR Porn for the very first time. “You get a much greater awareness that you are in the room with a girl and she’s speaking immediately to you as well as looking you right in the eye. This naturally appeals on a more personal level than conventional videos, that have a voyeuristic quality. But all that eye contact and immediate communication is a one sided transmission. And when fiction gets that close, you begin expecting it really is real or at the very least like a choose your own adventure story.”

With such a convincing amount of faux-familiarity, this could have some social or mental consequences.

From another psychological point of view, its great resemblance might result to an unfavorable outcome especially for men who have previously engaged in a violent sex. “With this considerable at-risk fraction, porn will include gas to the fire,” Malamuth stated.

On the other side, its resemblance to the realistic sexual encounters, though VR, might be a more pleasurable experience for others. “For a few, it may become a preferred form of sexual experience that is certainly more physically and emotionally satisfying than making love with a real companion” he added.

After all, mankind does have a history for wild, unsubstantiated speculations whenever new technology like virtual reality porn arises.
