After Ben Coullie, a colleague of mine, told me out of interest to check out what’s in the works between Oculus Rift (gaming headsets) and porn, honestly, I’m amazed that porn took so long to get onto the virtual reality (VR) ship. Sci-fi authors, theorists and porn developers have been visualising the day that virtual reality and sex integrate since the moment VR became the in-thing. Although the Oculus Rift, a virtual gaming headset, has been in the wild for a few good months now, there have been just few developers programminf VR games to be experienced via the Oculus Rift. But firstly, what is the Oculus Rift?

The Oculus Rift, is a next-generation virtual reality headset designed for immersive gaming which according to an article on the Guardian has already raised $2.4m from a Kickstarter campaign, and is likely to retail between £150 to 250 when it's released next year 2014. I don’t know about you but I've never heard about this piece of technology (Oculus Rift), probably because I am not a hard-core gamer.

An article on PC Games N states that a lone developer has been breaking new ground with a pair of sexy demos, that illustrate the potential of VR porn. The animated demos have been named ‘cowgirl’ and ‘mastery’. The article states that they’re animated loops of 3D modelled ladies that hop up and down on VR user.

Does it work?
Oculus Rift planned for PC and mobile, consoles 'not a focus'Tim Edwards writes the game demos are deeply unerotic. He states that this is because the demos looks faintly horrifying and the lady models come with disturbingly inaccurate ladybits; thereby somewhat missing the entire point of pornography, and the lady models' dead eyes are utterly terrifying.

Furthermore, the VR male model does not come in the same dimension as the VR player. Tim Edwards' review of the demo states that he’s a pretty wide man, and the male model whose chest he briefly inhabited was thin. Thereby, he experienced significant cognitive dissonance as his brain attempted to process the differences in chest width between these two bodies.

From this disjoined attempt, it is obvious that this technology has the potential of catapulting the porn industry into a different dimension. Tim Edwards writes that if we dig far enough we will definitely find other well crafted models of video-game characters that can be freely imported into most 3D modelling packages. So it will increase the possibility of not only posing as video models (for female players or LGBT community) but also simulate having sex with them.

Others jumping on board
Oculus RiftOthers have jumped on the Oculus Rift wagon. Tech Investor News says sex-simulation software developer ThriXXX, announced that it has integrated the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset into its soon-to-be released Chathouse3D real-time chat client software.

Although the company’s product is currently in beta testing stage and will be release this year, 2013. It is the first 3D chat client to incorporate Oculus Rift. The company has described this product as a peer-to-peer 3D chat client that lets only adult users socialise in private virtual spaces, virtually date, and engage in multi-player sexual role play fantasies while plugged into a "Matrix" or "Avatar" movie-like VR world.

Tech Investor News states that in voyeur mode, participants in the chat world can enter stealth mode to spy, snoop and peep into others fantasies in a discrete manner, record action in first and third person modes, and create their own voyeuristic realty TV style POV (point of view) porn from other people’s fantasies. This means that virtual voyeurs can view consented strangers playing out their 3D intimate fantasies and who are unaware that they are being watched. Lastly this company’s product will give users the opportunity to hide or unhide their presence in a room.

Oculus Rift certainly possesses a fantastic new experience, not only for the gaming world, but to revolutionalise cybersex and to quench the inner secret porn lover in some of us.
