When it comes to pornography, more lifelike is generally what people look for. The higher the resolution, the better the experience, at least usually. 3D technology/ virtual reality/ Oculus, however, is a little jarring to get used to, and jarring isn’t always an adjective people would pair with erotic. See for yourself in this goofy and amusing video of people trying Virtual Reality Porn for the first time…
Obviously, the huge elephant in the room is the camera, courtesy of Complex. A majority of people have a hard time getting in the mood when strangers are watching from a few feet away. That being said, as the majority of reality show contestants would tell you, it’s very easy to lose self-awareness in the moment and simply go back to behaving as if nothing is different, especially when confronted with something out of the ordinary, like say 3D porn. That’s why the reactions are pretty genuine, and they run the gamut from…
ShockThis poor woman did NOT expect to be watching hardcore pornography today, let alone virtual reality hardcore pornography. The second she sees it, it’s just too much, and her first reaction is to cover her mouth and laugh, letting everyone in the room know she realizes this is very weird.
HorrorThis poor guy cannot take things flying at him anymore. He was willing to jump on board and give it a try, but once the mechanics of body parts actually flying at him became clear, his only defense was to put his hands up and swat. Given the mechanics of the process, however, he definitely failed. There’s no stopping virtual reality porn. It’s coming.
ArousalThis dude is just going with it. He doesn’t care he’s being filmed. His virtual reality penis is getting played with, and he wants the virtual reality girl to know he’s enjoying the trip. Expect this dude to save up and shell out for this immediately. If he’s comfortable enough to bump it here, God only knows what he’ll be doing in his apartment.
Extreme BoredomThis dude has seen it all. He’s been in some of the freakiest, kinkiest places on Earth and nothing rattles him. He’s probably seen or done all 13 sex acts the United Kingdom just banned. And throughout it all, he just stares straight ahead like someone waiting for an eye exam to begin. Bravo, sir. You’ve lived a much fuller life than the rest of us.
It’s hard to imagine 3D technology won’t be the future of pornography. Expect there to be a huge pushback, however, from those who are unwilling to change. As they talk about in the video, there are a lot of older people who don’t get Internet pornography. They have magazines and that works just fine, just like imaginations worked for their parents. Well, many people in the Internet generation may feel the same about this.
Here’s to hoping we get a follow-up video featuring Steve Harvey.
