Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR porn guide: Getting started with downloads

The technological world is slowly waking up to VR and adult VR content. Here’s how to get started if you’ve got a Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR.

This is the first in a series of posts around putting your Google Cardboard or Samsung Gear VR to use with adult content.

If you’re reading this and you don’t have a VR headset yet, there are some cheap options here to get you started: 5 budget VR headsets for your futureporn addiction.

Assuming the rest of you have a headset to start with, let’s take a look at the basics of accessing and viewing porn on your headset.

Samsung VR (Samsung Milk VR)

For Samsung Gear VR owners, we’ll start by presuming you want to do things in the simplest way possible – and that means using the Samsung VR, or Milk VR as it used to be called. It should be showing as available to downloaded inside the Oculus app.

If you’re not in the US, it will show as incompatible with your device. You can get around this temporarily by using a VPN app, selecting a server inside the US and downloading the app as normal. If it isn’t showing in the Oculus app after firing up a VPN, restart your device, connect to the VPN and try again by reopening the app.

Once you’ve downloaded it, if you used a VPN you can go ahead and disconnect it now, you don’t need it to use Milk VR. Other uses recommend apps like Tunnel Bear and Hola VPN to get access, though we didn’t test either of those.

The app has its own showcase of available clips to watch, but if you’re after porn, you’ll need to sideload that yourself – and it’s still a somewhat clunky process.

Ultimately, what you need to do is create a folder in the root directory of your SD card/phone (wherever you want to store your files) called MilkVR. As long as you then either download directly there, or transfer files there after downloading them (directly on your phone or via a PC and then transferred), you shouldn’t have any problems.

If you’re particularly geeky, you can set your own thumbnail for this MilkVR folder.

Once installed, your sideloaded clips are ready for viewing in their own special folder, as you’d want them and the app supports the change of viewing angle function, should you shift from lying down to sitting (or vice versa) and want to shift your default view.

Some services allow you to see the recommended seating angle before downloading them (part two of this series is a guide to the best places to get content!), which is particularly useful. Staring at the ceiling and missing the action isn’t a lot of fun, nor is craning your neck.

Some people have problems with the MilkVR app on their Samsung devices and Google Cardboard users encompass a whole lot more phones (including iPhone support), so there are other alternatives available that essentially require the same steps as with Milk VR.
