While upon first glance this mannequin head camera screams anything but intimacy some people might actually find it to be successful. VR Bangers, a VR porn production company has revealed their POV Head Rig, a mannequin head whose eyes are cameras. The Rig is designed to offer VR porn users a more emotional and ‘intimate’ experience.
It’s definitely an interesting concept but upon first glance most people may be a bit horrified at first. There are cameras as the eyes but also on the top and back of the head as well. So how does it offer a more intimate experience for the user? The porn star will do their thing while cradling the mannequin head and can whisper into the ears which have microphones.
CTO Boris Smirnoff says they had to showcase the product at AVN Adult Entertainment Expo as the CES found the mannequin head to be a bit too ‘weird’ for their event. Smirnoff claims that their goal is to help their models make the most of their play space in order to provide better quality content for users. The head was created to increase the emotional and intimacy level for the user.
There is more ‘awkwardness’ to overcome and manage when it comes to VR porn stars as compared to regular 2D porn actors. Holding a head would be much easier for an actor rather than having to use a 360 degree rig.
There are many ways to look at VR porn which could be good or bad. However, it’s safe to say that it’s not going away and is already making new territory for virtual technology.

Last year Ubisoft developed Nosulus Rift, a device that simulated the smell of farts for South Park: The Fractured But Whole and while it was never meant to be available to the public, the device definitely worked. Now people have the opportunity to use a device that allows them to smell whatever they prefer during their sexual VR encounter.
OhRoma, a mask that allows room for your VR goggles offers users a way to incorporate scents of their choice while partaking in their sexual escapades. This device is meant to enhance the user’s experience and works with your smartphone.
For example, Victoria Ryan, a star of CamSoda stated that she wanted users to be able to smell her and because she does a lot of shows relating to the pool and beach, she wanted the smell to center around sunscreen, tanning oil, salt water and even a little bit of a chlorine smell. Of course, she could easily decide to incorporate a different smell as time goes on or as she pleases.
Certain scents are considered sensual and work great for encouraging sexual arousal. A smell researcher, Dr. Alan Hirsch, said that most men get aroused by a pumpkin/lavender scent. Of course, certain scents can also enhance empathy; camphor, menthol and eucalyptus. It really depends on the user’s experience as to what scent they might prefer to use during their VR escapade.
The device is available for $70 and the scents for as low as $6 each. A combo pack is also available where you can purchase the device as well as the complete set of 30 scents for $99.
