The adult industry has been one of the first to embrace virtual reality with open arms. With free porn so widely available, producers had to start thinking outside of the box in order to both keep and attract paying subscribers. What better way to do that than to combine their audiences’ recreational key interests: hentai porn, mobile gaming and immersive tech: Hentai VR Porn.

As discussed in a previous post on mobile sex gaming, the anime industry has continued to grow exponentially; its global popularity is simply off the charts. Currently estimated by Anime News Network as a $18.1billion (US) industry with no signs of diminishing, it is evident that the market will expand further and is likely to employ new technologies to ensure that the visuals and graphic quality continue to evolve.

Anime fans themselves, have helped to form new subcultures where their passion for anime extends far more than just reading manga and watching TV Shows. It’s had a significant influence on fashion, music, events and general lifestyle. Cosplay for one, has become more and more popular over the last 10 years or so, with even a number of Camgirls making a career out of cosplay themed sessions and attending expos worldwide as special guests. There are even career cosplayers that are invited to such events by film studios to depict specific characters and often amass a huge following through social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. All of this makes sense in a ‘real world’ scenario, (or rather on a humanistic level) but how does its popularity then translate into the virtual fantasy world?

Going back to our Cosplayer and Camgirl examples, we see that those who tend to have similar attributes to the kind of characters they depict tend to have the biggest following i.e. doll-like facial features or the ability to look doll-like with the use of makeup, generally slim frame, busty and usually with a lot of cleavage on display. This appeals to the same senses that mainstream porn does, i.e. attractive women wearing tight outfits and playing up to a fantasy. The fact is, humans have incredible imaginations and love content that plays on that. We can see this in art, literature, music etc. When given free reign to create, the world is our oyster and we love to explore possibilities. This of course, translates perfectly to virtual reality. Given a platform where it is open-source like World of Warcraft or Skyrim, people love to deviate from the standard gameplay and try out new things, often things that aren’t so PC or SFW. You put a player in a virtual / animated world, more often then not one of the first things they are going to wonder is “Is it possible to get that female character naked? Is there a sex mod I can install?” This occurs not only from a place of curiosity, but also from a psychological viewpoint, we like to displace our sexual anxieties, interests and desires on to a medium that is not too challenging or potentially threatening, particularly for those who are a little more shy or less confident with their sexual prowess. Having a virtual character in this setting that you can control means that there’s no fear of rejection or pressure that occurs in real world scenarios, you can interact freely and they can become “the perfect partner” in a fantasy context.

The Boyfriend-Experience of Miki Kiss VR App.

It may sound unlikely that an adult game featuring animated characters could have so much appeal, however you would be surprised at how incredibly immersive VR mobile sex games can be. You can try it out with the sexy 3D animation game Neva or the boyfriend-experience of Miki Kiss VR app, which are available on Lazeeva App Store. The idea is to create a scenario that is inviting to the user that enables a certain level of interactivity with their surroundings and the character in question. If it’s too rigid or repetitive, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain interest in the gameplay and the player can become bored very quickly. However, if you have the option to come and go to different places, interact in a variety of ways with the main character and can build up a form of character profile, the content instantly becomes far more realistic and the fantasy format just adds to the appeal rather than detract from it’s immersion potential. Another factor is content updates: if the developer adds new content every 2 weeks to a month, this massively increases the game’s playability and the likelihood that the user will keep logging in to play and interact with the characters. Things such as new topics of discussion, clothing options, sexual interactions, environments etc. are great ways to keep the product fresh. With so many mobile sex games on the market, it is essential that the product isn’t left to become stale and forgotten about. That’s why offerings such as ‘Hentai 3D2’ from Thrixxx are so popular amongst mobile gamers: the content is user generated. You have a whole host of options when it comes to scenarios, characters and environments and it’s up to you to create the scene. In other words, you create your very own hentai and have the ability to share it with others. With this type of format, the sky’s the limit. Though there have been reports of some game platforms being taken into some very dark and disturbing corners of the net, most players just want to see hot characters having fun in wild and playful scenarios.

In VR format, you rely on your senses far more heavily as you are usually, physically acting out some kind of action whilst viewing 360 degree content. Essentially, the more you feel like you are physically interacting with the virtual environment, the immersive it becomes.

Which is why some VR sex simulation developers have been creating dolls and hardware specifically catering for the ‘interactive’ aspects. VentureBeat wrote an article on GoImagine VR earlier this year; the company who created ‘Let’s Play With Nanai’. The mobile VR app syncs the smartphone’s gyro sensor with the animated character. The smartphone is attached to the sex doll and the character will respond based on the doll’s body movements as sex is simulated.

This kind of technology is still on fresh, new ground and as it develops, we will see even more realistic versions of such products, plus even more immersive VR content. It’s a fascinating time to be alive where technology is concerned; we are witnessing the course of the future with AI, intuitive VR technology and its pioneers directing at the helm.
