Virtual reality porn for women: how it is and how it should be

by The Red Ghost 19 oct. 2017

Last days we've seen how Virtual reality porn technology is evolving, thanks to headsets that are always more advanced and portable. We've also dreamed about a future when augmented reality porn will add virtual erotism in every moment of our everyday life. You may have noticed that most of the time I was referring to adult entertainment for men, but I always tried to remember that there are women enjoying porn, too and this is something that I always like to highlight.

Porn for women has been a theme that has always intrigued me. Do really women watch porn as us men? Are there videos suitable for them? Are there VR experiences tailored for them? Follow me and I'll try to give you some answers.

Women enjoy porn, too. There are various statistics on that: a recent article on Marie Claire highlights how 31% of young women in the US enjoy adult entertainment videos on online websites, especially through the use of smartphones. Notice that we men are at a stunning 87% and that explains why the adult industry is so male-oriented. Anyway, 31% of all the young women out there is surely a number we have to consider as important, that's why most porn websites now feature a "for women" category. If we want to consider only the VR porn sector, according to a Porn Hub statistic reported by TechWorm, "men are 160% more likely to view VR videos compared to women" and this means that 27.8% of the total VR porn viewers are women. For this reason, here on Pornfox VR there is a "For women" category.

VR porn videos for women usually features an experience from the point of view of the woman. Once I tried watching one and I came out pretty shocked: looking below me I had tits and a vagina and then came a big bald man saying to me "Happy birthday" and then... well, you can imagine the rest. It was pretty uncomfortable, but it was interesting for me the possibility to live sex from the point of view of a woman. One of the powers of VR is to make us try new experiences from new points of view and sex is surely an interesting part of this experimentation. Women could try a video about "blowjobs" to try how it is this experience from the point of view of a man, and experiment with different sensations.

The fact that every woman can see a body of a woman in a VR video dedicated to her is very important because this enhances the immersion and can make her feel that she's really having sex with that beautiful plumber that has just come to her house. Or can make her try that lesbian experience that she had always curious about.

The problem of the category "VR porn for women" is that in my opinion, it is still too much men-oriented. I mean, it still displays a fast sex or solo scene. But this is only one kind of porn genre that girls love. Reading here and there (I've even read an article on Psychology Today, to document me better!), girls are not like us men: we see breasts, bottoms, and vaginas and get excited. We don't care that much that has no sense that a waitress is so sorry to have spilled coffee on a customer that she has to do oral sex with him (and he has no underwear, of course!). They like more psychological, more passionate stories, where they know the characters well, they know their situations. They also like erotism. They like to see random people and not plastic dolls and super fit men. That's why in the above Marie Claire article, most of the proposed websites offer more erotic experiences (like "I Feel My Self" website) and less rough porn ones. That's why erotic novels are so successful between women. That's why Fifty Shades of Gray has been so much loved. Don't misunderstand me: this doesn't mean that women love only romantic porn, this means that a lot of women want that, too.

That's why I think that VR porn for women category has to evolve. "Porn for women" seems like a reservation inside porn for men. It has to be a separate section of the porn websites, as "gay", for instance. And inside this section, there should be various categories, like "rough sex", "lesbian", "romantic", "solo", etc... to satisfy all the types of girls out there. I think that this would increment a lot the number of women enjoying VR porn. Something is moving in this sense: for instance, now there are videos made by Virtual Real Passion that offer a more passionate and romantic adult experience for women. So, we are on the right road but there is still a lot to do for equality in VR porn.

The goal is to arrive at a VR adult experience that pornstar Siri depicts on Quora with these words:
•    A woman had a hand in the production, writing, direction, etc. of the work.
•    It depicts genuine female pleasure.
•    It expands the boundaries of sexual representation on film and challenges stereotypes that are often found in mainstream porn.

I hope that this will happen soon.... in the meantime, if you're a woman, you can look for some video you may like here on PornFoxVR!
