Virtual reality (VR) technology is undeniably gaining in popularity every day. If a major consumer tech company doesn’t already have a headset out, they’re probably working on releasing one in the near future.

Even Facebook has elbowed in on the action with its purchase of Oculus Rift. Google, of course, kickstarted the trend with their affordable Cardboard models too. Samsung and Playstation are the other two players currently in the game, with many others on the horizon. The headsets are just one piece of the VR puzzle though; streaming being the other key element. VR videos require a lot of bandwidth, and at first, many industries didn’t really know how popular – or practical – VR videos were going to be online.

One industry, once again, is figuring it all out before anyone else. It’s not surprising that porn is at the forefront of VR, as it was with VHS and DVDs. Porn takes the technologies of the future, and makes them mainstream.

WankzVR is a great example of a porn site going the extra mile to make its virtual reality porn movies not only accessible to fans, but look and work great on a variety of different virtual reality devices. Most of the videos are over an hour long and are offered in 60 frames per second, exceeding the usual standards offered in non-immersive online videos. The platform has the bandwidth to deliver both streaming and download options for its members. Videos are filmed in 3D, making the sexy scenarios even more scintillating and realistic.

Because of porn’s commitment to excellence in VR streaming, other possibilities are popping up in the mainstream world. If it wasn’t for the adult industry, it’s likely that video technologies would be much less advanced than they are today. For example, a soccer championship is going to be broadcast live in VR, giving fans an immersive experience.

There are many virtual reality startups that have popped up in the past year or two aiming to improve streaming for mainstream endeavors. By putting the war chest of the multi-billion dollar porn industry to work behind the development of virtual reality technologies is helping to reinvigorate a business ravaged by free porn sites and piracy.

Through virtual reality streaming, customers get a new way to look at porn, and porn producers get a new revenue stream that users deem worthy of paying for. Most people figure, why pay for porn when there is so much free stuff out there? However, anything with special features – like the ability to stream high quality, 60FPS, 3D, 180-degree or 360-degree porn scenes – are all worth it for anyone interested in the technology.

With the adult industry leading the way once again, video games and live immersive VR experiences are getting better for everyone.
