BadoinkVR Release ‘A Year In VR Porn’ Report for 2019

By | March 8, 2020

BadoinkVR was one of the first VR porn sites and continues to rank highly in most reviewer’s estimations. This week they released a report that broke down some revealing stats about which VR headsets their subscribers were using to access content at their site for the last year (2019), as well as the usual things such as global audience share and popular search terms.

The most striking finding is the domination by Oculus in the stats. Together, the three different Oculus headsets – the Rift, Oculus Go, and the Oculus quest – account for well over half (59%) of Badoink’s subscribers. Most tellingly, the Oculus Quest is the second most used headset (18%), fast catching the Oculus Go (30%) despite only being released eight months ago, and suffering from supply problems since that time.

The report confirms what many have suspected and certainly hoped – that the Oculus Quest is proving to be something of a Game Changer which is slowly and finally helping the VR porn industry to turn the corner.

Unfortunately, supply problems for the Oculus Quest have only been exacerbated by the coronavirus crisis affecting Chinese factories. Currently, it appears to be out of stock pretty much everywhere, sold out on Costco and available at Amazon only at inflated prices.

As somebody who promotes VR porn sites, I’ve noticed that sales have been down recently, and wondered if that could be down to the supply problems with the Oculus Quest. On the other hand, I would think that over the coming months, quite a few million people might be tempted to spend a lot more time in virtual reality than going out into the real world.

Finally, another interesting stat is the declining popularity of the cheaper VR headsets. It seems that for VR porn users, the Oculus Go and the Oculus Quest hit the sweetspot, being able to take advantage of the 5 or 6K resolutions that are standard now in VR porn, while the most expensive high-end headsets – such as the Valve Index – don’t really add to present VR movies or games, and are more suitable for hardcore video gamers rather than porn fans (this will hopefully change, of course, especially as digital VR porn becomes more advanced).
