Why audio is important in VR porn

by The Red Ghost 7 nov 2017
When talking about porn, there's one sense we all think about: sight. We want to see beautiful women, we want to look at beautiful sensual bodies, we want to see awesome sex. But sight is not the only variable in the virtual sex equation, other senses are important too and at the second place of this senses classification, there's obviously hearing.

The hearing is very important in traditional porn: listening to the dialogues can be uninteresting (unless you watch a porn movie for the plot!), but hearing the moaning of the actors can be really arousing and the ability to hear realistic sound of the intercourse makes everything more realistic, so turns us on more. Looking on online forums, some people blame adult movies that have only a soundtrack and no real audio and define them as "looking people having sex inside an aquarium". Surely this conveys the idea.

With virtual reality porn, audio is even more important. First of all, it enhances the sense of presence: seeing realistic visuals while hearing realistic sounds makes us feel as we are really there inside the action, having sex with those beautiful girls.

A lot of attention has to be paid to record the audio so that it is a high-quality one and it is also 360° so that the user can hear the audio coming exactly from the position where the person moaning is. I think that one of the most difficult things to perform is the removal of the audio of the main character: most VR porn videos are made from the point of view of someone that is actually making sex on the stage and that, of course, is getting aroused and so moans. But when looking the VR porn video, you don't want to hear the moans of the actor representing you, because this will be weird and will break the magic (your brain would realize that someone is having sex at your place). So, it is necessary to remove such sound to have an optimal virtual porn video. If the audio is great, the sense of presence is complete and your only worry will be that you will feel so immersed in that paradise (maybe also using a Teledildonics device) that you could not notice someone entering your room while you're... having fun :).

Another great feature of audio is that it can enhance the sense of intimacy. One of the most awesome moments when watching VR porn is when a girl (or a boy, if you're a girl!) comes next to your face and start whispering sweet things in your ears. This is a very special sensation that standard sex online entertainment can't give you: you start feeling a connection with that girl, you start having a sense of intimacy with her and not only sex. Videos of sweet girlfriends become impressive in VR, giving you amazing romantic sensations.

These whispers, together with the caresses of the actress on our virtual body, could trigger a sensation that is known as ASMR. ASMR is a well-known phenomenon where thanks to audio and visual stimuli, the body produces tingles that start from the head and go down to the neck and the upper part of the spine, triggering some kind of euphoria. Sensation offered by ASMR is in some sense related to the one of an orgasm, that's why someone calls it "head orgasm". This means that, if your virtual porn video implements ASMR techniques, you can have an enhanced orgasm that includes your genitals and your head... an orgasm combo that you won't forget easily.

The last two points are the reasons why VR Bangers has created a special mount to record better audio, using two microphones that are installed inside the ears of the main actor.

This should help in giving better audio, that triggers closer intimacy and stronger ASMR sensations. It's incredible how the VR community is working on this topic and I really hope that the more we'll go on, the more we'll live realistic audio inside VR porn videos, dreaming of having real sex in real life.
