HOW VIRTUAL REALITY PORN IS TAKING OVER THE ADULT INDUSTRY

One notion that most porn enthusiasts will unanimously agree to is the fact that porn gets boring and repetitive quite quickly. Bundled with the redundancy that is characteristic of the porn industry’s collection of videos it is no surprise that users are increasingly searching for alternative means of sexual gratification, which ultimately meant lesser revenues for porn studios.

VR porn injects a new vibe of freshness and creativity to the porn industry, and by doing rejuvenates the already dwindling subscriber base of porn faithful. Its interactive nature coupled with its immersive tendencies is sure to entice new users who previously found porn boring and lacklustre.

The year 2017, saw the number of mobile porn viewers rise to nearly 200 million unique users, this is a 30% jump from the number of users in 2013 indicating that more and more individuals are beginning to use their mobile device to access pornography and adult content. This cynosure of mobile porn users affords the burgeoning field of VR porn a rich vein to tap into since for now, VR porn is mostly mobile oriented.

Putting all these into consideration its evident that the market for VR porn is one that is set to increase continually and although the customer base right now is not the porn industry standard of explosive, as more content becomes readily available to users VR porn’s  domination in the adult content market is inevitable.

Future Growth and expectations

Coinciding with the adoption of VR into the porn industry, the year 2017 saw a prodigious rise in the number of active porn users, meaning that once again porn enthusiasts were beginning to find porn content that fascinated them.

With studios like Naughty America reporting a revenue growth of about 350% which they attributed to the recent integration of VR porn into its porn brochure, there is no doubt that the future of VR porn and invariably the porn industry is indeed bright. Also, sites such as VR Porn Hot are growing and becoming the new era of the ‘tube’ sites, offering VR-only content for free.

Naughty America’s figures suggests that porn users are beginning to really accept VR porn, and it’s not hard to see why. 2017 ushered in a new wave of improvements to VR porn. When it debuted, videoswere limited to a resolution of 480p and frame rates could only get as high as 24fps. Though enjoyable this format limited the realism in the VR experience. However, recent advances and innovation in the global VR atmosphere have allowed for improvements in both video and audio quality with most studios now offering 4K videos at frame rates of up to 120fps.

The continual improvement regarding hardware stems from the fact that manufacturers have realised that Virtual Reality is the future of display technology. As such, VR has seen renewed commitment from major players in the tech industry who are investing a lot of resources and are always pushing the limits of this technology. The result is that a plethora of VR headsets and VR related technology/innovations have since flooded the consumer and developer markets.

This sustained investment into Virtual Reality means that there will be no shortage of new features and innovation that porn studios will implement in creating videos that take users to the next level of realism. As is noted by Paul, who produces porn videos for Naughty America, the possibilities as it pertains to VR porn are indeed endless. Porn studios are constantly trying out new ways to make these videos that are sure to amp the user experience; it won’t be long before we see VR porn that incorporates sex toys and teledildonics that would make up for the missing feeling of touch and sensation which seems to be VR Porn’s only handicap.

The surge in new technologies and improved content is leading futurologists like Dr Ian Pearson to predict that VR porn would become mainstream by the year 2030, effectively replacing traditional porn content. This increased acceptance is sure to propel the pornography industry to new monetary heights. According to Pipar Jaffray, porn is set to be a major player in the virtual reality sphere actively competing with gaming, and NFL derived contents for the largest market share, which is estimated to reach 34 billion dollars in the nearest future.
