Virtual reality porn ‘could change human relationships forever'

Virtual reality porn is booming – and people are already asking for something surprising, and very different to what consumers want from ‘traditional’ pornographic films.

Instead of exploitation, people are asking for ‘more intimacy’, ‘more talking’ and ‘more romance’, according to one VR pioneer.

It hints that people will use VR pornography – where the viewer is a ‘character’ in the scene – as a replacement for real-world relationships, rather than simply as pornography.

BaDoink VR director , Dinorah Hernandez says the company is already filming 15 to 20 scenes a week in 180-degree views.

She told News.com, ‘People are asking for more romance, closeness, more talking. This is something you’ll find in a real relationship but not everyone in the world will have access to that kind of relationship.

‘To be able to have an experience with another woman could give them something that maybe the real world can’t.’

She says that the technology is likely to evolve to include more senses such as touch and smell.

Hernandez says, ‘We’re going to reach the limit with sight. It can only get so good. We might start seeing more integration of touch, smell. We’re going to start to see that.’
