Watch This Gay Guy Try Straight Virtual Reality Skin Flick And Get Scarred For Life

by Oscar Raymundo March 20, 2016

From home videos to online streaming, “adult entertainment” has oftentimes embraced new technology before the mainstream. Now, the porn industry is, ahem, jumping on another cutting-edge trend: virtual reality.

For the first time ever, Naughty America let people watch its latest VR videos at South By Southwest, and I got the chance to experience it for myself using Samsung Gear VR. The demo lasted about six minutes, and it’s everything we’ve come to expect from modern porn with its cliched scenarios and explicit sex acts.

This apparently straight dude was more into the flicks

After Naughty America first tried VR earlier this year, the company is now making VR videos with more-recognizable female stars (or at least, recognizable to straight men who are into that sort of thing). I got personally acquainted with Rachel Starr, Nikki Benz and Kimber Lee, all who seemed like really lovely ladies. Viewers actually get to choose from a male perspective or a female perspective, but according to a woman who watched the female version, it still seemed targeted to the (straight) male gaze.

The main issue with VR video is that it’s not yet as immersive as other VR experiences. It’s not as exciting as going on a VR roller coaster, for example. The models also look a lot bigger than they would in real-life. It felt like watching a very NSFW version of the Attack of the 50-Foot Woman on IMAX.

Not surprisingly, a lot of straight men came to the Naughty America demo at SXSW, and I understand the strong curiosity of trying this thing once. But right now VR adult does not yet come close to simulating real sex, and it’s not vastly superior to simply watching porn on your computer.

Naughty America’s VR porn can be viewed with a monthly subscription of $24.95 and you can watch it using a Gear VR, Oculus Rift, or even on your smartphone with Google Cardboard.

This sort of thing was supposed to have ended when marriage equality was legalized, but apparently it’s a reality that queer couples must still face: when a partner dies, evil family members swooping in to seize the couple’s possessions with no regard for their decades-long relationship. It used to be far more common. Without legal marriage equality, most LGBT couples had [...]
