MONTREAL — Self love is about to get a whole lot more stimulating after the world’s biggest porn site launched a free virtual reality channel for X-rated material.
Pornhub unveiled the channel this week in partnership with BaDoink, which specialises in producing virtual reality adult content, Mashable reported.
And to give the channel a helping hand, Pornhub is giving away 10,000 pairs of virtual reality goggles.
The channel will offer a “mesmeric experience unlike anything seen before,” Pornhub’s vice-president Corey Price said in a statement published by the Daily Mail.
All that’s needed to discover your own potential in this 360-degree world of filth is an Internet connection and a VR headset — the channel even supports Google Cardboard.
Pornhub’s VR content doesn’t require a subscription, but you’ll have to sign up for a membership to see it in maximum resolution.
“After decades of kicks and starts, virtual reality is finally hitting its stride,” BaDoink CEO Todd Glider said, according to the Daily Mail.
“McDonalds Happy Meal boxes are doubling as Google Cardboard; now Pornhub is tossing its hat in the ring.”
So could this be the game-changer that shoots VR headsets to the top of everybody’s shopping wish list? And what might be the implications for human relationships when virtual sex is available anytime, anyplace, anywhere?
With VR poised to take off in a big way, it was only a matter of time before porn shifted into gear and embraced the technology.
Just how much of an impact VR will have on our lives remains to be seen. But the genie is out of the bottle and it’s a question we’re all going to have to wrestle with.
