COVID-19 And VR Porn - Unfinished Man


COVID-19 has transformed all facets of human existence, including porn experience. Now, after several months of self-isolation, it is possible to estimate the effects of lockdowns on porn consumption. With millions of people stuck in their homes, VR porn has gained many more fans.

The trend is hardly surprising. Both PornHub and VR bangers have seen spectacular growth in traffic. It is also clear that the popularity of VR porn is surging. The technology provides immersive pleasure – the closest thing to real-life sex. 

The Great Shift

Now, with the pandemic in full swing, everything seems to have gone online. From shopping to work and education, millions of people are learning to live in the new reality. With so many businesses going under, one industry has benefited from the crisis – porn. Steamy content is in high demand.

According to PornHub stats, more users are connecting to the website than ever before. Since March 10, traffic numbers have been on the rise. On March 24, when the company made its premium services free, the surge amounted to 18.5%. VR is one of the fastest-growing categories on the platform.

VR pornography is the next best thing to real sex. In some countries, couples who do not reside together had to stay apart for the entire duration of the lockdown. Millions of people were isolated from lovers or potential partners. Thus, the trend was predictable. But why VR?

In these conditions, virtual reality allows humans to satisfy biological urges. Some of these new users may have discovered it out of boredom or curiosity, as home routines can be monotonous. Of course, sexual desires may be satisfied by old-school 2D porn. What makes VR so special is the feeling of genuine interaction that so many of us miss during the lockdown.

VR vs Regular Porn

When you are stuck inside the same four walls, it is easy to get bored with ordinary entertainment. After all, we get most of it via our laptop screens or smartphones. In this respect, donning a VR headset provides novelty and relief.

1.   Coping with stress

Viewers of VR porn feel more positive and less lonely. Porn is a known stress-reliever.

2.   Emotional engagement

VR porn is not just about intercourse. It also offers a full spectrum of intimacy: kissing, whispering, etc.

3.   Virtual travel

VR porn allows one to visit different parts of the world. There are movies set in restaurants, beauty salons, woods, including overseas locations. Now, when movement is so restricted, VR experiences are often irresistible.

Beyond the Lockdown

It is now clear that VR experience is deeper and more satisfying than 2D porn. It is therefore expected to continue developing rapidly. According to research, immersion in VR can affect the human brain and nervous system in a strong and unparalleled way. This is because interaction with a virtual user is more powerful than the demonstration of imagery, even the most arousing.

I've got so many tattoos and you know what? I'm still scared of getting them. Oh, and I love writing about the weirder stuff in life. You'll see.
