Your Brain On VR Porn

by | June 8, 2018

BadoinkVR, our pick as the number 1 VR porn site online, recently commissioned a study looking at brain activity of a headset wearer experiencing virtual reality porn, with the aim of establishing if there is any notable differences with the experience of watching ordinary 2D porn.

Although the study was not large, it was probably as scientific as the one which recently declared that ‘sex robots have no health benefits‘, and it’s good to see the adult VR industry paying for such a study rather than leaving it to opponents of porn and future sex tech. It also resulted in a couple of intresting findings.

Among the more interesting findings is that VR porn increased the average cognitive load across the board. This means participants worked harder to process information when watching in VR compared to a monitor. That’s not necessarily a bad result. As Lopera explained, both VR and PC scored in the cognitive load “sweet spot,” where users were neither overwhelmed with information nor bored by it.

“Where there is a difference between this study and other studies we’ve done in gaming or other sectors is that the cognitive load in virtual reality doesn’t get to stressful levels,” Lopera said.

The participants’ motivation, or whether they feel positive or negative about watching certain content, was also greater, or more positive, in the VR test. While motivation in 2D and VR followed a similar trend—positive anticipation as the video starts, a slump in the middle, and peak toward its climax—the VR scores were higher on average. This suggests VR produced a more positive experience overall.
