Over the past few years there have been many significant changes concerning the adult entertainment industry. The newest change being the addition of virtual reality technology which has boosted the growth and number of supporters for the industry even more.
The number of viewers on Pornhub reached an all new high in 2016 on December 25th, Christmas Day, with a total of 900,000 views of virtual reality porn. The amount of virtual reality pornography views daily is now about 250% more than it was a year ago.
The addition of virtual reality technology has allowed for all new interactive experiences. Instead of being just an observer as with 2D pornography, users can now participate in their wildest fantasies. Pornography has a negative effect on modern sex culture and many believe that virtual reality pornography is going to do nothing but make that issue worse and make it harder for people to form real emotional connections with each other.
The Dangers Associated with VR Pornography
The newest thing in the adult entertainment industry now is virtual reality pornography which allows users to participate in and customize the sex scenes rather than just watch. Virtual reality technology combined with pornography basically lets users enter another world when they put on their virtual reality headset and it can be a world that they create. The user is able to fulfill their fantasies using this technology and can play out any scene that they want in an incredibly realistic way.
When using a virtual reality headset, users get a 360 degree view of the scenes and there are new technologies that even allow for senses such as taste and smell to be experienced along with the virtual reality aspect. More expensive headset such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive come with a controller that people can use to manipulate and touch objects in the scenes.
There is much speculation concerning the effect that virtual reality pornography is going to have on real life human interaction as well as sex culture. There is even talk about how VR porn relates to sexual violence as well as consent. Many believe that it will have a negative effect, especially with how easy it would be to become addicted to VR porn because of how realistic and immersive that it is.
Issues concerning virtual reality pornography and consent were studied by Newcastle University. The people running the study asked the volunteers to create a scene in which “Jack” would enjoy and be able to act out his fantasies in. Many of the participants had seemingly harmless answers in the opinion of the researchers. Some however, expressed some belief that “Jack” would become obsessed with the virtual reality adult entertainment and that it would ruin any real life relationships that he may have and take over his life.
