Just recently, a leading adult entertainment website, Pornhub, revealed some interesting demographics about its users. While the demographics are detailed but there is one thing in these stats that caught our eye. According to the demographics, there are around 500,000 daily views of VR Pron videos and that is not all these numbers surpassed the 900,000 views of VR Porn.

It is user’s own choice what he/she wants to do with its VR headset or any other gadget but, with these demographics, one wonders if VR Porn has become popular VR Games. If it is then what are the reasons behind it, is it the lack of VR titles or is it people just like to watch porn on their VR devices.

The first reason as to why VR Porn has much more user engagement than VR Games is that it is porn, people just like to watch it. Also, not all who watch porn have these headsets for gaming, a big chunk of them only have them to watch movies in VR and they also use it to watch VR Porn. In simple words, not all gamers prioritize VR and don’t have VR headsets.

However, there is a big chunk of the PS4 user base that owns PSVR. Also, PSVR is only compatible with PS4 and the console does not allow you open porn sites, believe me, I have tried. So eliminate them out of the equation of watching VR Porn over playing VR games unless they have found a way to bypass that which would not be surprising.

Moving ahead, another reason for the VR Porn being watched by a majority is that there aren’t many phenomenal VR games experience out there. We do have games like Robinson The Journey, Resident Evil 7(currently PSVR exclusive) and more. However, there have not been many good VR games and most of them available feels like VR demos than games.

So yeah this is another reason, that many bought the VR headsets following the hype surrounding the headsets but there are not many phenomenal VR game experiences out there and these users have to find a way to make a better use of their VR headsets, and the stats speak for themselves.

Another reason VR Porn being watched more than VR Games being played is that Porn has always been available on the newly introduced devices. It was there when VHS was introduced and it is here when VR tech is introduced. Meaning that the hype surrounding the VR was huge and the Porn industry took notice of it and introduced VR Porn to bank on the hype and increase its daily views.

However, this is just my personal opinion, but I would like to hear yours too. So if you disagree or agree with any of the points I have made regarding VR Porn being more popular then VR Games then let me know in the comments below.
