Wild Vegas VR porn experience gives room service a new twist

These virtual reality videos are shot in rooms just like yours.

A new product trial is aiming to put the “strip” in The Strip. Sin City’s embracing virtual reality pornography in a big way, with Las Vegas hotels considering offering VR porn experiences as a room service of sorts, and in a wildly immersive way.

Virtual reality porn will blow your mind, but the X-rated Vegas experiences go a step further by filming the onscreen interaction in a hotel room that resembles your own, to really put you in the action. Whether that means the VR porn videos are shot in a generic Las Vegas-style room or in sets that specifically mimic participating hotels is unclear. Either way it’s an intriguing twist that promises to make the virtual reality experience seem even more real—a tantalizing proposition considering how immersive virtual reality porn can be even when it’s not directly linked to your environment.

The story behind the story: Previous Oculus Rift experiments have proven out just how compelling VR can be when your virtual experience ties into the virtual world in some way; that physicality, in fact, is one of the key selling points of the premium HTC Vive headset.

The VR Bangers Hotel Experience

When you rent a VR porn experience for $20, you’ll receive an AuraVisor VR headset loaded with VR Bangers software, which will allow you to pick from a variety of performers. Once you’ve made your selection, the scene starts with a knock on the door, and well, you can guess where it goes from there.

The AuraVisor headset seems like a smart pick for a rental experience like this, as it’s an entirely self-contained unit, rather than requiring an outside phone or PC for processing power. (Hopefully the rentals come with a few disinfectant wipes, too.) What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, rather than lingering around on your phone.

Details on when and where the “VR Bangers Hotel Experience” will roll out are scarce, with VR Bangers CEO Daniel Abramovich telling me via email that final contracts haven’t been signed with the hotels negotiating to host the experience. Nevertheless, the VR Bangers press release anticipates that “this trial in Las Vegas hotels is likely to be followed by a larger scale rollout.”

If you’re not planning on traveling to Vegas any time soon, adult video site PornHub offers a free VR porn channel. The videos work best with Samsung’s Gear VR or a generic Google Cardboard headset, and PornHub’s VR porn videos don’t expressly tie the experience to your physical location like the VR Bangers Hotel Experience does, but it’ll give you a glimpse of what all the hub-bub’s about.
