VRBangers review: On-demand innovative and high quality VR porn
VRBangers is a smart choice for anyone with a Vive, Rift or GearVR due to its integrated app that makes watching VR porn simple. Is it worth it for everyone else though?
VRBangers has grown rapidly since its launch back at the end of 2015, adding an interactive game scene, an app that makes watching super-simple, and scenes of up to 6K resolution.
Now more than ever, however, there are a lot of rival VR porn sites that it needs to stay one step ahead of – BaDoinkVR, VirtualRealPorn, and WankzVR are notable, high-scoring alternatives for general access, plus there are a whole lot of dedicated niche sites available too.
On its side, VRBangers has a competitive pricing structure that works out at between 27 cents and 83 cents per day, depending on whether you sign up for a month or a year. That makes it cheaper than some of its rivals, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better value – read on to find out if it’s worth your hard-earned dollars. Full pricing details can also be found on our roundup.
VRBangers at a Glance
Description: VRBangers doesn't quite make it to the top of the pack, but it gets pretty damn close thanks to its incredibly useful features, and particularly innovative Vive and Oculus options - there's no access to teledildonics or non-VR porn though.
GREAT FOR OCULUS AND VIVE USERS
VRBangers doesn’t quite make it to the top of the pack, but it gets pretty damn close thanks to its incredibly useful features, and particularly innovative Vive and Oculus options – there’s no access to teledildonics or non-VR porn though.
Just like many of the alternatives, VRBangers puts some effort into making its catalog of 286 or so (correct at the time of writing) VR porn videos easy enough to find. In the most part, this means filtering by category, searching for specific performers (there are around 195 currently) or navigating your way from one video to another via the video tags. Whichever you choose, it’s simple enough. What it doesn’t offer is the ‘best viewing angle’ indicator that some of the other sites have, however.
Even so, finding VR porn videos you want to watch isn’t a tricky thing to do – and it’s made simpler by the fact that you can download or stream the clips the directly – thereby sparing your phone from multiple multi-gigabyte downloads.
Most of the scenes range between 22 minutes and 40-something minutes, with the average tending towards the high twenties. The catalog seems to be getting regular – often themed – scene updates too, and there’s an included VR porn game included (based on a Game of Thrones parody) for anyone that subscribes and also owns an Oculus or HTC Vive headset.
There’s a good mix of one-on-one action and scenes with multiple girls in too, which helps keep the VR action interesting – indeed, many of the scenes (particularly the newest ones) are available as both 360-degree and 180-degree clips. It’s a nice option, considering that many other VR porn sites stick rigidly to 180-degree.
As mentioned above, VRBangers has a few differentiators that make it stand out from the crowd – despite not being anywhere near the biggest catalog available.
Most notably, there’s a VRBangers app that works a bit like BaDoinkVR’s virtual theater mode. Essentially, it just makes it a whole lot easier for you to watch full length, high resolution VR porn videos without having to download them all, or mess about with other third-party VR content players, and it finally should work with all Android phones now too.
The VR porn game, however, only works with Gear, Vive and Oculus headsets – if you have one of those, it is included in with all the subscriptions (excluding the one-day trial).
The only thing really missing from the list of supported features is a selection of teledildonic capable videos. If that’s essential for you, VRBangers probably isn’t the subscription you want. If you don’t have a Fleshlight Launch, or Kiiroo Onyx/Pearl, you probably won’t care though.
For the rest of the ‘regular’ VR porn videos available – at up to 4k – you can use an Oculus, Vive, PlayStation VR, Gear VR or smartphone-based headset. VRBangers is one of the only – if not the only – site to explicitly state support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets from the likes of Lenovo and others too.
With a whole bunch of innovative features, 360-degree videos as well as 180-degree, streaming and download options, VRBangers is surprisingly aggressively priced, working out at $0.83 cents per day for a monthly subscription, $0.55 cents per day for three-months of access, and $0.27 cents for a year subscription. Clearly, that longer commitment works out significantly cheaper in the long.
Those numbers, however, aren’t that useful (it’s how VRBangers displays prices, not us!), so here are those costs broken down into the actual payment amounts.
If VRBangers had a slightly bigger catalog of videos, teledildonic support and that smartphone VR app available today, it’d sit right at the top of our roundup of VR porn sites. As it doesn’t, it shares a joint second place with VirtualRealPorn and Naughty America, but what you get is quite different. With Naughty America VR, for example, you get thousands of regular (non-VR) porn videos included with your subscription too, but it’s not the most innovative of VR porn sites if you’re looking for features.
Overall, VRBangers delivers its best value with a one-year subscription – and provided it doesn’t take too long to deliver the new VR app, that should open things up to even more convenient viewing for even more people.
