What’s the Best VR Headset for Porn?

When we talk about which VR headset is the best for porn, the term “best” could be interpreted a couple of different ways — both of which I’ll discuss in the article below.

Before we dig in here, if you’re trying to watch porn on your PSVR, that’s a whole different issue. Fortunately VentureBeat put together a pretty good piece on all the hoops you need to jump through to get going.

I won’t be discussing PSVR in this article, as it’s notoriously difficult to watch porn on the PSVR. That’s not what their device was intended for, and you’d be better off springing for one of the less expensive solutions discussed below for your, um… “alone time”.

The Best Overall VR Headset for Porn: If Money Is No Object

If you’re planning to spring for a full-blown VR setup, but you’re trying to figure out if the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive is the better headset for watching porn, this part of the article is for you. If you’re looking for a cheaper solution, skip to the next section below.

The two most important headset features for watching VR porn are visual quality and comfort. I don’t care if you’re diving in for a five-hour porn marathon or 5-10 minute “quickie” — these are the two most important criteria.

Oculus Rift CV1

I think any legitimately unbiased judge would agree that the Oculus Rift is better in both of these categories. It’s significantly smaller and lighter, has a really decent built-in audio solution (which the Vive does not), and has better off-center optics (e.g. looking sideways or up/down without turning your head).

Those things combined make it more convenient, higher quality, and flat-out the better headset for watching porn.

If you want the highest-quality VR porn experience and you’re planning to spend at least a few hundred bucks, nothing beats the Oculus Rift. You’re going to get the best visual experience on the market and be significantly more comfortable than using the heavier, bulkier HTC Vive.

The Best Mobile VR Headset for Porn: A Balance of Quality and Affordability

Not everyone wants to spend several hundred or several thousand dollars on their VR setup. If you’re looking for a better balance of cost-to-quality, this section of the article is for you.

First thing’s first: Don’t consider cardboard VR headsets. They’re just flat-out awful. Unless you want to get motion sickness while watching porn (hey, maybe that’s your kink), I wouldn’t recommend anyone seriously consider a cardboard headset for VR porn… or VR anything, for that matter.

That leaves us with three options in the mobile market: Google Daydream or Samsung Gear VR for Android users, or a third-party VR headset for iPhone users. Technically Android users can also consider the third-party headsets that iPhone users are forced to consider, but the experience isn’t going to be remotely as seamless as the Daydream or Gear VR.

If you’re one of the few that can choose between a Daydream or Samsung Gear VR for your device, go with the Gear VR. It provides slightly better optics and is sturdier/more comfortable than the Google Daydream.

Samsung Gear VR for porn

If your only options are the Google Daydream vs. third-party VR headsets, stick to the Daydream, without a doubt. It’s not quite as high quality overall as the Gear VR, but it’s a hell of a lot better than the mixed bag of aftermarket options and provides a really decent VR porn experience overall.

And finally, if you’re an iPhone user, you’re in the hands-down the most-neglected VR market right now. Your best bet would be to compare aftermarket solutions side-by-side on Amazon and find the one that’s best for your model of iPhone.

Now that you know which VR headset is the best for porn, how the hell do you watch porn on these things?

I had to crop a dick out of this picture

For mobile headsets, it’s pretty simple. Download the movies to your mobile device and watch them using your VR video viewer (most Android mobile devices have a really good one built in). Very straightforward.

It’s not quite so straightforward for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, unfortunately. But don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with this step-by-step article: How to Watch VR Porn with the Oculus Rift & HTC Vive

And finally, there’s already a sea of VR porn content available online. It can be difficult to choose just one, which is why I wrote an article comparing my top 3 favorite VR porn sites available right now: The Best VR Porn Sites for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive

That’s pretty much it! Hopefully that gives you all of the information you need to hit the ground running, and dive in to the world of VR porn.
