TLDR: Oculus Quest 2 + SexLikeReal + DeoVR Player
TLDR: To watch VR porn, get an Oculus Quest 2, launch the DeoVR video app from within the Oculus apps menu, click “Browser,” then navigate to SexLikeReal.
VR is short for “virtual reality” and refers to immersive experiences that feel real. After years of being a cheap gimmick, VR has finally reached the level where totally immersive sexual experiences are possible.
What you need:
- Headset – Oculus Quest 2
- Software – DeoVR
- Website – SexLikeReal
Part 1 – A Proper Headset
Currently, you need a VR headset to experience adult content in VR. Phones can’t handle modern VR, though I expect mobile VR technology to catch up within the next couple of years. So, if you want to experience VR porn today, I recommend using a proper headset.
Second: unlike headsets that require a PC wires, and sensors, the Quest 2 operates independently and wirelessly. This is important for VR porn, because you will want to move around your physical environment and simulate different positions/scenarios.
I specifically recommend the Oculus Quest 2. First: it’s the cheapest option (~$299 on Amazon).
For example, you will want to watch some videos while laying on your back. Some are most immersive while sitting in a chair. Some scenes might even prompt you to get down on your knees or stomach. Just like real sexuality, options exist for every preference.
Most other headsets require a substantial amount of wires or mounted sensors, which can make it cumbersome to change positions. With the Oculus Quest 2, you don’t have to deal with any of that.
Compared to other headsets, the Oculus Quest 2 also looks cooler and more low-pro.
Avoid Pornhub (at first)
If you are just starting out, the first website you want to check is SexLikeReal (I have an in-depth review here). Their interface is fantastic, and they have a huge content library that should satisfy most preferences. Once you try out their content and have a general idea of what VR porn is capable of, you can then move on to other sites and even Pornhub, but the quality of the content will be mixed.
The specific issue with most VR porn sites is inconsistency. Due to rapidly evolving technology and production techniques, lots of content out there is designed or optimized for older technology, and doesn’t accurately represent how far VR porn has come. In fact, my personal opinion is that adult content in VR has only really become viable this year, now that we 6k/90fps and fleshlights that can sync with the video.
The content on SexLikeReal is highly curated and most videos you’ll find on there meet modern day standards. This includes things like framerate, stereoscopic, resolution, etc. If you’re brand new to to VR and intimidated by the terms, don’t worry. After a little bit of exploration, these terms will become as natural as HD vs. SD.
If you have ever tried VR porn on Pornhub or on your cell phone and were disappointed, I encourage you to try SexLikeReal with a proper headset; it will likely blow your mind.
Experiencing porn in VR changed everything for me. I will share my journey in another post, but TLDR it’s just more fun and makes me happier than regular porn does. The primary reason is that my brain pretty much thinks it’s real sex with real partners.
Important Step: Make Sure You Use the DeoVR application.
In the DeoVR application (it comes pre-installed on the Oculus Quest 2), you have the option to launcher URLs in a browser. Using the DeoVR application to launch SexLikeReal gives you access to important VR video controls and playback options, so don’t just use the regular browser.
- Open the DeoVR App on your Oculus Quest 2
- Click Browser
- Go to sexlikereal.com
- Click on the option to launch the VR app
Once you load the app, you can browse content in VR, and videos will play in VR. Make sure to open up the extended menu and mess around with the following controls:
- Force Monoscopic (this can resolve display issues, see explanation in later section)
- Zoom – While “zoom” features are already notorious in porn for obvious reasons, Zoom in VR offers a lot of utility for fixing immersion issues. If a character appears too large or too small to be “believable,” small tweaks in zoom can make all the difference.
- Height – Important for changing your viewpoint. For example, if an experience has you standing face to face with a model, but you want to be on your knees, you can use the Height adjustment to correct the viewpoint.
Once you get a feel for the options, and try out content from a few different producers, you should have an idea of what type of VR content you want to find.
Otherwise, whatever you’re looking for should be out there! Good luck, enjoy, and stay safe!
VR Porn Guide – FAQ
When I watch Oculus Quest VR porn, I see “double” images and/or ghosting, or duplicate images.
Solution: Enable “Force Monoscopic” or close one eye.
If you are seeing duplicate images overlapping over one another, aka ghosting, there could be a few causes.
The most common cause is that the video is old or just bad. Perhaps it was made for older hardware, or exported incorrectly.
The other possibility is that the photographer used incorrect filming techniques. In general, VR cameras need to have a minimum distance away from the subject. Just like a pair of human eyes, distortion occurs when an object gets too close. To understand this phenomenon, look at your own finger really close to your eye and notice how you see two of it. The same thing happens when filming VR. Just like real life, you can close one eye to solve the problem.
For the most part, SexLikeReal has solutions for both of these issues. First, they curate their videos. All videos meet a certain quality standard. Second, their VR Player has an option to “Force Monoscopic.”
“Force Monoscopic” will disable stereoscopic video, a.k.a. the thing that simulates depth perception. This will prevent the video from being truly 3d, but it’s still pretty immersive IMHO.
How do I Force Monoscopic? I don’t have the option?
If you are watching using the DeoVR player, click the additional options menu to find the Force Monoscopic option. If you don’t see this option available, you are most likely using a different browser and not the DeoVR player.
Will Facebook know if I use my Oculus Quest 2 for VR porn?
The Oculus Quest 2 requires a Facebook login. Many people avoid using the Oculus Quest 2 to watch VR porn for this reason.
If I buy an Oculus Quest 2, do I need 64GB or 256GB?
64GB is fine. This is due to the fact that most content will be streamed anyway.
For those hoping to play offline: It is possible to download some videos, but they are so large (10GB+) that even if you had 256GB available, it still wouldn’t be enough to amass a proper porn library.
Will tethering to my phone provide enough bandwidth to stream VR porn?
Probably not. When I tried this myself (I have T-Mobile unlimited), it wasn’t sufficient and the videos had to pause and buffer every few seconds. I couldn’t find a solution to that.
Start with SexLikeReal
SexLikeReal is the top ranked VR porn site on Google for a reason. It’s also the first site I tried for VR porn the day I got my Oculus Quest 2.
I still have not consumed all the content that comes with the Premium subscription. They add content faster than I can watch it all.
Something that’s important to understand about VR videos is that it’s easier to consume slowly. With regular porn, it’s tempting to skip around to the best part. However, with VR porn, it feels more like real life which makes it much easier to watch in real-time, allowing the suspense to naturally build up.
On top of the premium subscription, I have bought twenty or so of their Pay Per View videos. The videos are a lot cheaper than other sites like Clips4sale. Along with that, the production value is higher, there’s more model diversity, and the clips are longer.
There are a lot of great studios on SexLikeReal. Personally I like the weird niche JAV fetish ones like PetersMAX, WOW!, TMAVR, and SodCreate. My favorites list has a huge backlog of new titles I still want to pick up.
Thank you for stopping by. I get affiliate commissions for signups, and genuinely think that both the Premium Subscription and Pay Per Video products are fantastic.
