VR Porn for the Sony Playstation VR Already Available

by | October 21, 2016

The Sony Playstation VR has only been on the market for a week and already at least two VR porn sites are advertising that their videos have been specially formatted to play on it.There had been fears that Sony would attempt to block the playing of porn on their VR console, but the recent announcement that their media player would be updated to allow the viewing of 360 videos put those fears to rest and the VR porn sites have been quick to capitalize. Virtual Real Porn were the first VR porn site online, offering VR videos when the Oculus Rift was still an early developer’s kit. Now they are offering all of their hundreds of videos in formatted versions for the Playstation VR, with free preview videos in the Playstation format available for each video.

The biggest free porn tube site – PornHub.com – has also started offering its selection of VR videos in a format for the Playstation VR.

Pornhub has revealed to GamesBeat that its VR category is compatible with the PSVR head-mounted display. The process to get down in first-person, however, is complicated and missing some features compared to competing headsets, according to the adult-film website. Analysts predict that VR could generate as much as $40 billion in revenues by 2020, and the XXX industry could grab a significant chunk of that just like it did in the early days of the internet.

However, PornHub president Corey Price has criticized Sony for making it’s web and media players so cumbersome to use.

In an interview with VentureBeat, however, Pornhub president Corey Price criticised the PSVR’s ease of use, calling it “quite lacking in comparison to Rift’s and Vive’s media playback support.”

“Samsung GearVR and Google Cardboard are the current leaders in ease-of-use and functionality support,” he explained, “where everything can be triggered from the web browser on a mobile device.”

Currently, curious PSVR users need to sign up for a Pornhub account to download VR videos; they’ll then need to put those files onto a USB drive, open them with the PS4 Media Player, turn on their headset, and activate VR mode in the app menu.

In addition, PSVR only supports monoscopic equirectangular 360-degree videos, and none of the other formats available online at sites like YouTube.

Price said his company has “encouraged Sony to adopt the WebVR standard into their browser in order to make streaming in VR as seamless as possible.”

Recently, the CEO of VR site ‘Naughty America‘ claimed that if Sony attempted to block VR porn on the console it would mean that the Playstation VR would lose out to the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality headsets in the same way that the Sony Betamax lost the video tape war to VHS due to the latter’s more porn friendly approach.

Given the sheer size of the projected scale of the VR headset industry in just 5 or 10 years time, it’s unsurprising that the adult VR sites are confident enough to give advice to a multi-billion dollar company such as Sony as to whether they should allow VR porn on their devices, if as expected, porn drives the new industry forward just as it did with video tapes and even (supposedly) the Internet.
