Virtual Reality Porn & Neuroscience

July 16, 2018  /   Posted in Science, Tech

Ever been curious as to how virtual reality porn is received by your brain? How it may affect your brain? BaDoinkVR actually joined Neurons Inc recently to conduct a pilot study to determine just that. The study evaluated how the brain responds psychologically but also biologically to that of VR porn videos. The information obtained from this study will be used by BaDoinkVR to further push the limits of virtual reality porn, building an entire new foundation for future generations.

 

The Study

A group of participants were instructed to watch the exact same adult video but in two different formats; 3D and 2D. An EEG system was used during this exercise to measure brain activity of the participants. It measured the level of mental processing (cognitive load), level of interest (motivation), and level of excitement (arousal).

The results of the findings for each experience, 2D and 3D, were then able to be compared by the neuroscientists at Neurons Inc. This helped them gain significant insight into how people engage, respond and interact with VR environments. Furthermore, and interestingly, the study also showed that participants had key moments where the video they were watching elicited strong responses emotionally, both in a good and bad way, subjectively speaking.

 

The Key Findings of the Study

Participants displayed a drastically higher level of mental processing while watching 3D porn videos as compared to 2D porn videos.

Just before the performer undresses in the video at the beginning, participants showed a peak in arousal. Obviously, this means participants showed a natural response of excitement and anticipation of the performer undressing.

Arousal and excitement increased in a 3D environment due to the ability for the participant to look around freely. This closer interaction in a virtual reality environment only intensifies emotional experiences, therefore producing a higher sense of appeal and engagement.

Participants were engaged more while watching the performer pleasure herself. Empathy and excitement levels increased in participants when the performer climaxes and screams.

Arousal and motivation were spiked when participants could make eye contact with the performer via the 3D environment.

Generally speaking, oral sex yielded the most neutral response and participants reacted negatively to choking sounds during oral sex.

Participants showed a hint of arousal in the VR environment whenever the performer touched her hair during the oral sex versus the 2D video.

The most intense moment and when participants would reach the highest peak of excitement and arousal is the first moment of penetration.

Participants experiencing virtual reality for the first time during this study showed a higher cognitive load (brain activity) while others who have already encountered VR environments had lower brain activity.

Arousal steadily increased during the video as performers work their way to the final orgasm. The most enjoyable and intense moment of the video is ejaculation.

 

The Conclusion

While the study’s key findings are very interesting, it also shows us that not everyone will have the same response or reaction to a video. However, it’s pretty clear that virtual reality environments and experiences are worth exploring if you enjoy VR porn.

ARPorn.com has released one of the first Augmented Reality Stripteases compatible with most VR devices

May 16, 2018  /   Posted in Company News, Demo, Science, Tech, Video

ARPorn.com in collaboration with BaDoinkVR has released an augmented reality demo featuring a real 3D person, not a computer-generated likeness, something that has not been done before.

The continued pursuit of integrating augmented reality into daily life has just taken another large step forward. Augmented reality pioneers ARPorn.com, have teamed up with virtual reality porn studio BaDoinkVR to create an AR demo clip featuring porn star Susy Gala that showcases some of the capabilities of the technology to date.

Augmented reality (AR) uses technology to overlay visuals, sounds, haptic sensations, and even smells on the real world around the viewer, providing an enhanced or “augmented” experience. Up until now, AR has been used for tasks such as layering 3D computer generated graphics over reality, or simpler tasks such as displaying text notifications into our peripheral vision.

Augmented reality promises to offer amazing breakthroughs in many industries, and none more so than the pornography industry, which is ready to use the technology and deliver immersive experiences that are straight out of a science fiction movie.

AR glasses such as the Microsoft Hololens, or Smart devices like phones and tablets can be used to view most current augmented reality creations. In the case of Smart devices (phones or tablets), anything that has a forward-facing camera can be used, including mobile VR headsets like Google Cardboard or Samsung GearVR so long as the front cover can be removed to expose the camera.

The AR demo works through use of ARjs and WebGL Polyfill stereo rendering. The image from the Smartphones camera is fed through and used as the scene background in mono. The AR marker (printout) is used to track and determine Susy Gala’s location within the background image. A stereo left-right video file is rendered onto the marker and Chrome Key removes the green screen from the video. The result is a 3D object contained in a 2D scene. Viewers can then move around and view Susy Gala dancing from multiple viewpoints. The current AR demo video is 3D but is being rendered into a flat video file and therefore lacks depth. ARPorn.com is currently working on an additional demo clip using volumetric video to create depth. The new demo clip will also not require a placemat, instead using any flat surface as the AR tracking marker.

AR technology was featured in the immensely popular Smartphone game Pokémon: Go, which overlaid computer-generated visuals onto reality with great success. This latest AR demo release from ARPorn.com features a real person, recorded against a green screen and adapted into augmented reality. Using ARPorn.com’s technology and BaDoinkVR’s footage, viewers can now have porn star Susy Gala dancing and teasing in their living room, bedroom, on the coffee table, or anywhere else the viewer chooses. Featuring the image of a real person, and not something computer generated is new, and a big step towards blending the real and the virtual.

The best example to get an idea of this technology’s potential is the AI augmented reality girlfriend named JOI featured in the movie Blade Runner 2049. Of course, Susy Gala dancing in AR is a far cry from a full-fledged AR girlfriend, but the demo hints at the immense potential of augmented reality.

AR technology’s influence will span almost every industry, from health care to automotive and architecture, but the only industry ARPorn.com cares about is adult entertainment.

Scott Camball of ARPorn.com says, “We see augmented reality as a real game changer for the adult entertainment industry. I’m not just talking about typical pornography either, but AR stripteases, or AR cam shows, as well. They bring the image of real performers into viewers’ homes for the ultimate in interactivity. That will pave the way for AI hologram relationships. We are all very excited!”

When asked about augmented reality’s influence on VR porn, Scott said that he feels that there will be room for both technologies, with a large amount of overlap taking place. “The way we see it is that the two technologies will blend together, depending on the use or medium. This means that, in the near future, there will not be AR or VR specific headsets/glasses widely available. Instead, the units will be able to support both technologies.”

The field or augmented reality technology is beginning to rapidly gain momentum. Thanks to dedicated industry pioneers like ARPorn.com and innovative adult entertainment companies like BaDoinkVR, it’s only a matter of time before AR adult entertainment achieves levels of realism and immersion only thought possible in science fiction literature or movies.

Revolutionizing Sex Therapy using VR Porn

August 25, 2016  /   Posted in Science, Video

What was once a fictional technology of the future is now beginning to change our view for gaming and entertainment. Virtual Reality producers are continuously improving and transforming the potential of this product and the Adult industry is taking the advantage. Watching porn has never been more realistic and more intimate. Though more and more adult companies are beginning to develop their VR videos, BadoinkVR has taken it to the next level! The company aims to expand your horizon and turn sexual fantasies into an immersive, educational video that provides its viewers some guidance to improve their sex lives. Welcome to “Virtual Sexology”; the latest XXX edutainment.

Virtual Sexology was inspired by a VR therapy start-up that stimulates exposure for people suffering from agoraphobia according to the CEO of BadoinkVR, Todd Glider. “Sex therapy, to me, is a one on one kind of thing, where sex education has a classroom sort of feeling” Glider explains as how he sees the videos as therapeutic. Virtual Sexology aims to “make you a better, more attentive lover using valuable techniques to increase stamina and refine lovemaking skills”.

The video we checked out contained the beautiful August Ames seductively instructing some breath exercises and running through the importance of kegels. Adding to the experience is Kiiroo’s teledildonics that is surprisingly compatible with Badoink’s VR films.

After watching the 40 minute Virtual Sexology video, we definitely learned new tips on how to be a better lover. Although lying down the whole time did not feel immersive as it seems especially when you’re trying to learn some pussy eating techniques. However, the video focuses on helping men understand their manhood and controlling ejaculations and erections instead of showing how to please women. The video provides some good takeaways but the whole idea is not as concise as it seems. Does it help one to be a better lover? Debatable.

Badoink VR has something good going on and and hopefully, the company would work on more improvements for this project and emphasize more techniques and also remind users about the importance of intimacy and connection with your partner rather giving all the attention to your dick.

Can VR Porn Be More Addictive Than Drugs?

June 19, 2016  /   Posted in Science, Uncategorized

In a survey of over 216,000 adolescents, results indicated that marijuana use is drastically falling. Along with this, the amount of pot-related difficulties is going down with it. It’s potential is only one of the many positive outcomes of legalization but perhaps children today have specific distractions to check their drug hunger. VR porn might be the perpetrator.

MORE CANNABIS LESS ISSUES

A shrewd prophet once stated “mo’ money, mo’ problems.” That phrase turns out to be rather interchangeable indicating the more one has of anything, the more issues it creates. An outlier to the hypothesis is medical cannabis. Opposers thought an increase in legal marijuana would lead to influx in drug use among teens and adults. They got half of that correct. Despite numerous countries legalizing and decriminalizing pot, use by youths is dropping at record rates while the variety of adults utilizing the drug has improved.

THE DETAILS DO’T LIE

Scientists at Washington University studied data on drug use from adolescents aged 12 to 17 over a 12 year period. What they found was that the number of teenagers who had marijuana-related problems fell by 24% from 2002 to 2013. Over that same period, children have been discovered smoking less dope than their peers. The speed dropped by 10 percent. That’s one tenth of 100 percentage for all you numerically challenged. Fighting, offense, and drug offers are falling but it’s uncertain why. Possibly it’s increased drug education or simply the complete taboo of the reefer disappearing, but there’s another hypothesis: VR porn is disturbing US youth from medicines.

VR PORNOGRAPHY: AMERICA’S NEW DEPENDENCE

Way back, a fine bong rip certainly beat the heck from father’s VHS porn collection. There wasn’t all these cool tech to entertain ten youth in US, just some nice dope, and Led Zeppelin IV. Judging by children now, they probably find cannabis boring and who can really blame them? We’re within an age where the firmness of virtual tits can be customized. VR porn is new and way more arousing than watching Cheech and Chong for the 3rd time in a row. Drug use in adolescents is declining because they’ve just swapped out one habit for another. VR porn is what everyone else will be talking about in the locker room someday. Teenagers will sneak out of class to be a part of virtual orgy’s, maybe not get large. With dope legal now, it’s only another thing to purchase at the store. The future will be one full of virtual pornography. So far as the negative effect of that addiction, well, society will have to wait and see.

The growing need for realism in VR Porn

April 28, 2016  /   Posted in Science, Uncategorized, Video

Conventional porn studios produce a lot of third-person cinema. With the advent of VR and companies like VR Smash creating demand for first person or multi-dimensional videos and viewer tracking, both studios and performers are poised to change their industry practices to cater to the growing appetite for immersive content.

The goal of VR Porn is tricking the mind into believing the action is as real as touch. The viewer is no longer a window shopper but immersed in the experience. It’s not enough to just create scenes that have viewers siting on the sidelines, actors have to make the scenes realistic while focusing their attention on cameras rather than directors which requires foresight and skill with acting.

“The trend that seems to be emerging so far — and this can change next week — is the performers who are the strongest talkers and who have the ability to make a connection are doing the best,” Anna Lee, the president of the VR porn production company HoloFilm Productions, told International Business Times

With greater pressure on performers to produce realistic scenes and the marked quality difference between VR and conventional pirated movie sites trends show an increased market revenue and growth for the adult entertainment sector.

With increased demand and better quality productions the industry is poised to give consumers greater selection and create new industry standards that will push small operators to adopt VR technologies to stay in the game. To this end we can expect more content creation tools for the DIY studios expanding VR systems to other avenues of entertainment, business and consumer satisfaction.

Do you know someone that is addicted to Virtual Reality Porn?

September 07, 2014  /   Posted in Science, Uncategorized

Do you happen to know someone that is so addicted to Virtual Reality smut that they don’t seem to ‘get out’ much anymore? Maybe their addiction is causing you to suffer? Or maybe you are the one who is addicted?

Why all the silly questions? They may seem silly now, but you’ll likely understand how they could be actual questions you hear once adult VR has had a few years to really show us what it can do. It’s still a little too early to tell right now, but it definitely holds the potential for creating ‘addicts’ further down the road. Just what will happen? We won’t know until the time comes but we do know that traditional porn addicts have lost their jobs, families, and so much more over their addiction.

Imagine a world where real human interaction becomes almost obsolete and only the virtual reality world exists and excites people; that could definitely happen!

virtual reality addict

As of right now, we don’t need to worry about this just yet. VR is too fresh and new to cause such conditions. Right now, it’s clean and fun, arousing and exciting, but without the added ‘extras’ that typical relationships bring; arguments, problems, etc. Not to mention you won’t have to worry about being denied anal when you want it….

Obviously, this is all said in jest. There is no way we could actually replace our real lives and wives with those of virtual persuasion. However, it will definitely make one think. Do you think people will accept VR reality without the need for actually cutting ties with human interaction?

While it sounds appealing in theory; no listening to moaning or bitching, having someone do exactly what you want, who’s to say it would be appealing if it were to happen. And even if it could, VR has a long way to go before that’s a possibility.  The real question is simply how powerful do you think VR will become?
