Is it best to use an app or a website to enjoy virtual reality porn?

by The Red Ghost 25 Oct 2017
There are two ways through which you can enjoy virtual reality porn content: dedicated websites or dedicated apps. But... which way is better? And why?

The answer is, as always, "it depends". Every solution has its pro and its cons and you have to pick the one that suits you best.

VR Porn apps

These are virtual reality applications that you can download on your device so that you can enjoy VR adult movies. Sex-oriented experiences are not allowed in the canonical stores (e.g. Oculus Store, SteamVR), so you must download them from the website of the producing company. Inside this application, usually, you can navigate through categories, download and/or stream the VR porn videos and buy premium content.
There are many apps of this kind. One of the first to come to the market has been the one of  Virtual Real Porn, that released a dedicated app for all its videos, optimized so that you could see them with the best optical parameters possible.

What are the advantages of using an app?
  • It surely works: VR websites are made by using WebVR, that still has some compatibility problems: on some browsers, on some devices, it doesn't work. Virtual Real Porn released its app at times where WebVR was at its first beginnings, so it wasn't feasible;
  • It can have more features: since it is a dedicated app made using an engine like Unity or Unreal Engine, it is possible to make it truly graphically appealing. Even the UX is better inside a standard app. It is also possible to add fancy features, like the integration with Hentai animations or experiences, for instance;
  • You can download the videos and cache them into your PC, so you can enjoy them at a fantastic resolution and speed;
  • It can be VR only. Unless you use some VR browser or Virtual Desktops, usually a VR porn website is a 2D website that offers immersive content. This means continuously removing the headset to search a video, then launching one, putting the headset on again to enjoy the video and so on. This is cumbersome. With a dedicated VR app, there is not this problem: it is possible to launch the app and then enjoy all the content, menu included, in VR;
  • No spam: surely there are no banners, pop-ups and other annoying things like that.


What are the disadvantages?

  • Privacy: it is possible that the app gathers data about your usage and sends it to its company. Considering that porn is a very personal topic, maybe you're not happy that some company knows that you like bondage midget porn;

  • Persistency: the app is there, on your hard drive and anyone can find it. Furthermore, with Oculus Home that now shows the recently opened experiences, it could be embarrassing that other people using your PC (like... your boss) may notice that you have recently used an adult application;
  • Security concerns: downloading an app from a untrusted website may expose you to viruses and malwares during installation.


VR Porn websites

If you're here, I think I don't have to explain to you what a VR Porn website is :) . It is like a standard porn website, with the important difference that once you play the video, you can enjoy it in virtual reality through your headset and live the sensation of being really there with those beautiful girls (or men, if you're a girl enjoying porn).

The VR porn market is exploding and the web is full of dedicated places. Of course, we can only say that the best VR porn website out there is PornFoxVR, because it is easy to be used and has no banners, spam or viruses. But we'll let you decide :)

What are the advantages of using a website?

  • The experience is more similar to the one you've always had: there's no learning curve. You just enjoy porn in the same way of before, with the only difference that the video gets played in a more intriguing way;
  • 2D navigation is faster: you can search with your keyboard, preview with your mouse. It is a lot faster, especially if you're one of those people that are more selective about porn and look 50 previews before playing the right video;
  • There's a lesser risk of getting caught: using InPrivate browsing (that we all call "Porn Mode" for a reason... :D), no one will never know that you've enjoyed sexy videos (even perverted ones);

  • You don't have to install anything and this means more free space on mobile phones... and we all know how disk space on mobile is always a critical factor;
  • The website potentially works on every kind of device that has a browser;


And what are the disadvantages?

  • Experience is mixed 2D/3D and putting on and off the headset is a terrible nuisance. This will surely change over time when the web will become more VR oriented... but at the moment, it's an issue;
  • Some porn websites open a lot of pop-unders, pop-ups of untrusted websites and this is no good. PornFoxVR doesn't have this risk, but other websites have;
  • Sometimes browser updates mess with WebVR and you can't enjoy your favorite videos anymore!
  • Sometimes streaming works bad and the resolution of the video is terrible. Video artifacts ruin a lot the experience when you have the headset on.


So, what is the best choice in the end? We'll let you decide, according to your needs. On our side, we try to always offer the best experience possible, with no risk for the safety of your computer and we really want PornFoxVR to become the best online hub for VR porn. We truly believe in the power of WebVR and we think that privacy is a must have in VR porn, that's why we chose this format. And if you want to use an app anyway, for us it is really ok, but please watch videos shot by us at least! ;-)
