Adult content contributed significantly to internet development and according to some, they are doing the same for virtual reality.
This at least is what Brian Shuster declares. Shuster is the Ceo of HoloGirls VR, Canadian producer of VR adult content, after having already been among the pioneers of the internet (he founded in 1995 his first company, World Wide Internet Network, with which he developed the first advertising network of internet becoming one of the banner pioneers), but also one of the pioneers of adult virtual worlds with Utherverse.
Shuster has been focusing on adult content for years
Indeed Shuster is not new to these statements, as Mondivirtuali.it already told you since 2014. The owner, among other things, of Utherverse repeated for yearsthe predominance of “spicy” content compared to the overall offer of VR content is “natural”, since virtualporno producers can “innovate and develop filming and CG techniques for a real customer base, and the result is that VRporn companies are years ahead of non-adult companies in our understanding of what customers want in VR”, and can offer what they want.
Also Piper Jaffray seems to agree
But it is not only Shuster that bet on the virtualporno boom: also Piper Jaffray in a 2015 report had reiterated that virtual reality was the new “mega tech theme” and that adult content would have constituted by 2025 the third most important component of the whole sector, surpassed only by video games (in which Linden Labs seems to believe a lot) and by sport content (of Nfl particularly).
Kermes: we always like what is spicy
In truth, the latest developments on the subject of production and use of adult content in virtual reality do not seem to have fully confirmed the forecasts made so far, as we already told you, but that does not seem to deter industry experts.
In an interview in the New York Times, for instance, Mark Kernes, AVN Media Network senior editor who covers the virtual reality sector, explained that “sex sells, and where there is money to be made, there will be entrepreneurs who want to adopt it and make money from it”.
The case of the adult Tripadvisor
I can believe it, since one of the ideas that I recently saw circulating among investors of London startups regards an escort service reviews site, a sort of “adult Tripadvisor”, confirming that yes, everything that revolves around sex, for centuries, moves a lot of money and a lot of interest.
Then if all this can be a way to make virtual reality a mass technology remains to be seen.
