Adults: How to Watch Virtual Reality Porn on PlayStation VR

Go through the modern history of advances in consumer technology – whether it be 3D video, home video, mobile phones, even simply the internet – and you’ll find one major common thread: all have been massively commandeered for use as new platforms on which to consume pornography.

Well, if you didn’t know already, then it certainly won’t shock you to find out that virtual reality has gone exactly the same way! VR headsets have granted viewers a level of immersion in their chosen forms of adult entertainment which has never previously been possible.

Of course, as unashamed PlayStation devotees, we’re duty-bound to crown the PlayStation VR as the current king of the headsets. And, with the PlayStation VR’s fair price point (particularly compared to the competition), high comfort levels, and generally excellent execution, we also happen to believe that it’s the truth!

If you’re lucky enough to own one of these wonderful headsets for yourself, there’s a… chance, to say the least, that the thought of using it to check out a risqué video or two has crossed your mind. If so, then wonder no more: we’ve got a comprehensive guide for you, ready to go, on how to watch virtual reality porn on your PlayStation VR.

Before you do anything, make sure that your PS4 is kitted out with a recent update: most VR porn requires at least V2.50 to view (this is the update which added 360-degree video capabilities). Afterwards, you’ll need to assemble the right equipment. Along with the headset itself, you’ll need a computer handy, and a USB stick with a decent amount of capacity.

Boot up the computer, and find a website that offers downloadable porn videos which have been filmed in full 360?. The most popular current website, thanks to their vast library and the quality of their content, is Pornhub. If you head over there, you can go to the VR section and download a selection of videos for free: this is probably your best option to begin with, just to check that everything works – and that you actually enjoy the experience – before paying any money for it.

After you’ve downloaded the videos, put the USB stick into your computer. Create a new folder on there, called “VIDEO”, then copy the files from your computer into that folder. Swap the USB stick over from your computer to your PS4, and after you’ve plugged it in there open up the Media Player from the main menu, and locate your freshly-created “VIDEO” folder.

Connect your PlayStation VR headset, and turn it on. Load up your chosen video, and start playing it. It won’t appear in its full 360-degree glory yet, but don’t panic! To fix that, just open up the Options menu, and select the “VR Mode” option. After that, simply sit back, or… do whatever else you want to do, and enjoy!

As you can see, it’s pretty easy to get started with VR porn. Once you’re up and running, however, you may quickly find that you want to find new sources of content. Whilst Pornhub’s free VR videos are a great way to get going, the actual quality of their offering has been criticized by some, particularly regarding the resolution of the picture. Connoisseurs of the VR porn genre, who look down on the content available from Pornhub, tend to prefer dedicated VR sites (as opposed to larger sites which just have a VR section). Examples of these include Naughty America VR and the excellently-named BadoinkVR. Both sites require a subscription, however, so make sure you do your research on which option to plump for beforehand.

All of this is assuming that you’ve already firmly committed to the idea of VR porn. If you simply want to try it out quickly, to see whether or not it’s your kind of thing, there is actually a selection of tamer videos available on YouTube. Finding them is easy enough: just enter your chosen search terms (we’re sure you can use your imagination!) into the search bar, then open up the “Filter” menu and select “360?”. These videos will have a noticeably worse resolution than their more specialized counterparts, and will obviously be less explicit; the big advantage with this approach, however, is that you don’t have to download anything: you can simply do it through the web browser on your PS4.

So there you have it: a quick and easy guide to the surprisingly quick and easy process of watching virtual reality porn on your PlayStation VR. Whilst it’s still very much early days for VR porn, it really is improving all the time in terms of both quantity and quality. Follow our guide for the mechanics of checking out some VR adult entertainment, but if it’s not to your liking right now then we’d highly recommend checking in again in a few months, when the kinks have been worked out and the offering is better and more immersive than ever.
