Does VR porn hurt your eyes? And your health in general?

by The Red Ghost 18 Dec 2017
We all love watching virtual reality porn and we all want it to become the most realistic possible, thanks to improvement in display resolution (like in Pimax 8K), audio quality, and other stuff… and our dream is that VR porn becomes exactly identical to real sex. But there’s a question that we all are afraid to ask: “Is it dangerous for me? Will my eyes be hurt by these fantastic girls I watch in virtual reality? Have I to be afraid of this tech for any reasons?”. Don’t worry, I’m here to answer you.

The fear of becoming blind has always been present in people touching themselves. There is this urban myth that masturbation can hurt your eyes: of course, this is not true, it is just superstition. Trust me: I document well on stuff before writing an article using my braille keyboard! Anyway, here the question is not masturbation-oriented, it is more tech-oriented: does VR hurt your eyes?

The short answer is: no.
From preliminary studies, it appears that using virtual reality can’t be the cause of illnesses to your eyes. It can make a pre-existing problem come to light, but it can’t generate a new one. So, you may have the impression that using VR has caused you a problem, but the truth is that you already had that problem and VR just accelerated its appearance. The only true side effects of VR and AR on your eyes are very short-term ones like:
  • Dryness;
  • Eye strain;
  • Fatigue.
And all this because you’re operating with a screen very close to your eyes. In the case of HoloLens, the IR rays that go inside your headsets make the dryness problem more prominent. These are issues that you can fight very easily by drinking the right amount of water and making various pauses during your VR porn sessions. I know, it’s hard to take breaks when you have this scene in front of you, but you have to.

About other possible side effects of VR porn, I would absolutely reassure you. There are other physical side effects of virtual reality, like the so-called virtual sickness, but these are absolutely temporary too. One type of virtual sickness is the motion sickness: it happens when in the VR world you see yourself moving, while in the real world you stand still. In this case, the eyes perceive movement, while the vestibular system in the ears perceive stillness. The brain doesn’t understand while there is discordant information from its senses and so thinks that the body has been poisoned and triggers its defenses to expel the poison (making you try to vomit it). Other types of virtual sickness are triggered by a poor quality VR: if the frame rate of your experience is too low, for instance, or if the headset reacts too slowly to your head movements, the brain doesn’t understand why it is perceiving those strange things and so triggers its defenses. This means feeling symptoms like:
  • Headache;
  • Sweating;
  • Dizziness;
  • Nausea.
But again, you don’t have to worry. These are just temporary… in some miutes (or at maximum, hours) you’ll be super-healthy again. Here my pieces of advice are:
  • Avoid VR porn videos where the main character moves, moving your point of view and triggering motion sickness (luckily they’re very very few);
  • Avoid crappy headsets that give you poor quality VR;
  • Get started with VR slowly: if it’s your first day with a headset, start with just some minutes of VR and then take a break;
  • If you feel any kind of discomfort, remove your headset immediately (even if you’re seeing this goddess), sit down and relax until you feel better.

So, trust me: I’ve tried and developed even experimental virtual reality systems that made my brain go crazy and made me feel crazy sickness sensations, but I’m still alive and kicking and with my eyes seeing perfectly!

VR doesn’t hurt your body, but according to someone, it may hurt your mind. Again, this is not true. Virtual reality is a tool that is even used by psychologists to help with disorders like anxiety, stress, ADHD, and PTSD. And if someone claims that VR porn can make you addicted to it and that you’ll die masturbating in a corner of your house with a headset on, well, tell him that this is possible only if you already have a problem. VR porn has the same effect on our head that has on our eyes: if you already have a psychological problem, you can surely become addicted to VR porn. But without VR porn you’d become addicted to alcohol, sex, drugs or whatever thing. So, if you’re mind is healthy, VR porn won’t hurt you psychologically, but only give you nice orgasms.

So, in the end, VR porn can’t hurt your body or your mind, unless you already have a pre-existing problem. You can enjoy it and have fun it with it safely. Of course I have to say that all what I’ve said is based on current studies, but VR is a new topic... so new experiments analyzing long term effects on a great number of people are necessary to confirm this preliminary results. And of course I’m talking about adult people and not kids or babies… but… a-ehm, I hope that if you’re here on this marvelous VR porn website, you are at least 18yo.
