Where to ride the wave of virtual-reality porn

The merging of pornography with virtual reality headset technology is upon us, and mainstream porn giants are already churning out titillating titles. While the vast majority of these are squarely aimed at cis-dudes, featuring the same old in-and-out, there are a few companies making VR porn for women. To experience any of the following immersive experiences, you’ll need a smartphone and a VR headset, which range in price from the 15 Google Cardboard to the 599 Oculus VR Rift (for Android), and higher.

Badoinkvr.com specializes in point of view (POV) VR porn, and they have a few flicks intended for ladies. The Mating Room opens with you sitting in an all-white room. Look down, and you see your (white) legs and mini skirt. Look across the room, and there’s a hot guy! Soon he comes over and begins licking your leg. Things get more naked from there. It’s fun, but the feeling of having some nude stranger coming in for a smooch takes some getting used to. Don’t care for a storyline? VRSmash.com has a bunch of female POV porn videos with flowery titles such as “Getting Head” and “Squirting Orgasm” that cut to the chase.

Unfortunately, most of these titles were created by straight dudes for whom the mechanics of female anatomy appear to remain a mystery (aka my clit is way lower, still lower... forget it). And on VRSmash, the female bodies are porn-y, which can be alienating. On the other hand, one of the coolest aspects of the POV VR experience is that you can try on someone else’s skin—and not just that of female porn stars. If you’ve harbored fantasies about turning the gender tables, you can test drive a dude body in either a hetero or homo sexcapade very easily.

If you’d rather avoid stereotypical bodies and clichéd storylines, German site Ersties.com offers porn exclusively produced and shot by women, and you’ll see a much wider variety of bodies there. Ersties’ only VR film is not shot from your POV. Instead, you are a voyeur watching three people get it on while they are being filmed. You can look up, down, and all the way around, but behind you there’s just a wall and a door. My comfort level with the Ersties video was strong, since everyone involved seemed genuinely into one another. But I was standing behind the videographer during the climax of the film’s juicy sex scene! Frustrating, but at least it was a lady.

Sssh.com is another site where the porn is made by women, and here it’s also made for women. Empowering Ava, their first VR title, offers a storyline about an erotic novelist and her lover, so you can ease into the coitus. The actors share natural conversation, and things get really hot when Ava’s beau goes wild for pegging (found your prostate!). Ava is also shot voyeur-style, so it feels like some couple invited you to plop down in a chair to watch them do the nasty. If you’re interested in VR porn but don’t feel up to getting the equipment that viewing it requires, you can also watch Ava on your desktop or phone and just scroll around. But at the rate this technology is catching on, it’s only a matter of time before everyone will be doing it headset style.
