How VR Will Change Porn Forever

1.) You’ll No Longer Watch, You’ll Experience

Porn is no longer quite the passive thing it used to be. All thanks to Virtual reality, it’s deeply engaging and now you can take part in the action. With a 180-degree range of viewing options and an amazing Point of View-based film, you are the one that these kinky, sexy things are happening to. Jump straight past the awkwardness at the start and it swiftly begins to seem like an experience rather than an impact. Now you just have a fitter body and pulling more strength than usual. As of right now, even though you are able to look at the scenes, you can’t move your body around them. However, that should be changing very soon. The movement-allowing HTC Vive headset is ready to debut in literally a matter of weeks and research is already being covered regarding new forms of VR porn.

2.) The Frame Is Dead

  The first law of virtual reality for filmmakers is to think out of the frame: no one can bypass the invention of a new universe anymore. In the ancient world of film, the eye was the subject of a director’s framing. The camera would dictate which directions to look in, and everything outside of the frame was usually, for the most part, wiped out. However, in Virtual reality, the field of view is endless. This right here constructs a new task for storytellers: how does one bring the viewer’s eye towards all the action? As virtual reality allows you to wander on your own time, it’s really simple to miss important moments in the plot. The director usually will guide you with subtle hints, while keeping your freedom in mind. So how do you catch the shot in virtual reality? One tactic that is utilized in the short Virtual reality film “1, 2, 3 Soleil” was to place the 360 camera rig in the corner, therefore shortening the field of view. Instead of making you watch, the director was landing you in the correct direction. Coming up with these subtle cues is no small challenge: with a brand new dimension in Virtual reality and a rotating baseline, the old principles of setting up a shot no longer apply.

3.) Feminism Plays Part

Everyone knows who the actual “early adopters” are, and that is The porn industry. Adult film companies have been the leader in the tech charge since the early 1990s: Adult film industries were, among many things, many of the first to provide content on the Internet and to process online transactions. So, that being said, as virtual reality is quickly growing to be one of the most popular areas in technology, it’s not surprising that porn is already utilizing the new medium to its full advantage. However, unlike its predecessors, new porn has the new world’s vision, and so far it seems like women will be in charge of what goes where. Feminism definitely has taken part in new virtual reality porn, and how it will be viewed.
