Put yourself in the action with VR porn synced with an interactive toy like Handy for an almost- like-being-there experience.

Maybe you've been watching porn for years now. Maybe you were even watching porn back when you had to rent a VHS tape to watch it - or even before then, where getting ahold of that VHS tape wasn't as simple as heading to an adult bookstore. Maybe you've only been enjoying porn since it became easily accessible via online sites.

Either way, VR porn that can be synced with interactive toys like The Handy, is one of the newest ways to experience adult content - and it's really changing things up. Let's get into it:

What is VR Porn?

VR Porn is an exciting new way of viewing and enjoying porn. Just like there was "VHS Porn" or "DVD Porn", there's now VR Porn. It's an entirely new format of porn - complete with subgenres of different fetishes, kinks, and video categories inside of it.

So, what does "VR" stand for? If you don't hang around the tech community, you might not know that "VR" stands for Virtual Reality.

So, throwing it all together, "VR Porn" ends up being "Virtual Reality Porn".

Virtual Reality Porn is a porn delivery system that lets you really insert yourself into the action. Just like Virtual Reality games or movies, VR porn requires a headset. Once you slide on the headset, all of the action goes on around you - instead of just in front of you on a small box inside of your computer browser. Essentially, VR makes porn entirely immersive - and it feels like you, yourself, are sitting right in the middle of the erotic scene.

VR Porn started to hit the scene in the mid-2010's in various experimental phases. The user interface was still in its infancy, and while the VR capability was "there", it wasn't quite fluid.

That isn't the case with most of the VR porn you can find today. As VR technology has gotten more affordable, adult studios have tossed more and more money into their VR porn platforms. Nowadays, entire studios focus on VR porn offerings, and there are more VR porn websites than you can count. You can enjoy the high-quality, high-resolution videos that you know and love - but in virtual reality where you can interact with aspects of the experience just like you would in real life.

It really is the most immersive way to experience porn that we have today. Add in Interactive sex toys, and you have the recipe for powerful experiences that make you forget that you're alone in your living room.

Why Has VR Porn Exploded?

As you can imagine, VR porn brings added realism to the world of porn. 2D porn can be hot - don't get me wrong - but there's a whole lot of missing interactivity compared to VR porn. That's exactly why VR porn has exploded: interactivity and the ability to insert yourself into the action.

Standard videos film whatever the camera crew decided was important. VR porn films everything around you - and at a similar aspect ratio to your vision. This means the viewer controls the action. If you want to stare at a model's chest - and ignore the oral sex going on below, that's totally up to you. If you'd rather check out his face - and ignore the pounding that he's getting, that's up to you too.

VR porn is immersive just like real life. When you focus on one aspect, you can tune out other aspects of the experience. This means you can pick-and-choose where your attention goes in a way that feels extremely immersive - and allows for a lot of rewatching value to VR porn that may not happen in standard, 2D porn.

A lot of VR porn happens to be in the POV porn market as well. This means you can, quite literally, insert yourself into the action. When the porn stars are filming the content, one person wears a VR camera on their head. This means that the entire film is filmed from that person's point of view - which becomes the viewer's POV when they watch the video later on.

If you've ever wished that YOU were the porn star in a film, you almost can be. That's exactly the type of immersion that VR porn offers.

It also helps that VR headsets remove your ability to see anything else - just like real life. If you're sitting in a living room in real life, you can't also scroll-through to the bathroom or living room; what you see is what you get.

That's exactly what VR headsets can replicate. They place you into the center of the action - with no real distractions. With the VR headset on, your world becomes the world filmed in the video. If you look up, it's still porn. If you look down, it's still porn. Everywhere you look, you're still in a room with the porn. (Though if you're watching VR porn and critiquing the ceiling fan it in, you might consider swapping to a new video!)

VR porn equipment necessities have also become more affordable as time goes on. While electronic headsets are still relatively expensive (but more affordable than they had been!), cardboard-made alternatives now proliferate the market and allow you to use your cell phone for a DIY solution for VR porn. The most immersive VR porn experience still requires the more expensive options, but you can piece together pseudo-VR porn with as little as $25.

With all of those benefits, is it really any surprise that VR porn has started to explode lately? I don't think so.

Are There Sex Toys for VR Porn?

Like I mentioned before, VR porn is amazing - but you can really up the "realism" level by including sex toys within your VR porn experience. Your favorite, everyday sex toys can be amazing, but using Interactive sex toys can really, really intensify your experience.


Interactive sex toys also utilize advances in technology to take your sex toy experience beyond simple "pleasure". While you're free to use your standard toys - just like you usually do - while enjoying VR porn, the magic of Interactive toys is that they take the effort off of you - and ensure all you have to do is lay back and enjoy.

You see, Interactive toys feature advanced, built-in designs that synchronize to the action that's going on in your VR porn. If you're using a vibrator, it can vibrate in-time to the action on-screen. If you're using a stroker, it can slide up in down in tandem with the action on-screen. While the VR porn you're watching needs to be Interactive toy enabled to work, it's really quite amazing when you get to experience the partnership for yourself!

The Handy is one of these wifi-enabled, Interactive-capable sex toys. While this penis stroker is immensely pleasurable by itself, you can expand its pleasure potential by using its Interactive functionalities. Once you sync The Handy to any of your favorite Interactive porn (VR or otherwise!), The Handy will stroke in time with the action on the screen. Yes, it's really that simple!

Imagine sitting back after a tough day at work - and wanting to relax by immersing yourself in the latest release from your favorite studio. You pick up The Handy and get it ready (with a bit of lube and an erection!) and slide it on. You then pick up your VR headset and slip it on, navigating to the new release. Now, you just lay back. As the action goes on around you and you feel a part of the erotic action going on in front of you, The Handy strokes in tandem with that action. As sex, blowjobs, and handjobs become realistic acts that feel like they're only inches away from your body, The Handy does all of the physical components - which leaves your attention to focus on the seriously hot action in front of you.

Synchronization to select porn isn't the only feature that many Interactive toys, like The Handy, provide. The Handy's wifi capabilities also allow it to be remote-controlled - whether your partner is in the room or across the country.

Handy's community of users is always coming up with amazing ideas for the device, too, including a community-filled database of 3D-printed holsters and jerk off games that can be played with The Handy's automated design. It's really a whole new way to "play" with your masturbation!

Explore Some VR Porn Sites

What do you want out of your VR porn? Since VR porn has exploded onto the scene, its different, niche options have exploded too. While it doesn't match the availability of non-VR porn (yet!), there's still quite a few options out there depending on what you're looking for.

One of the biggest categories within the world of VR porn is POV porn. As you can imagine, since the VR capabilities allow you to really insert yourself "into" the action, POV porn fluidly works alongside the platform's innate design.

[Editor's note: these links are NSFW] However, even within POV platforms, the "type" of POV VR porn is still up to you. While most platforms cater their POV VR porn to those with penises, there are platforms made with videos that cater to those with vulvas. And while its still much harder to find, there are some POV VR sites that focus on non-binary bodies as well.

If you prefer watching (instead of being "in" the action), there are still quite a few platforms out there that can give you that too. YanksVR happens to be 100% female produced - and focuses on presenting unscripted, "real" orgasms to the best of their ability.

Handy has partnered with a few porn sites scripting the actor's movements to sync with the toy. Explore and see for yourself on the Handy and Handy Community websites!

As with any porn site, you might need to dig around for a while to find a VR porn site that's perfect for your tastes - but with the growing variety of new options out there, it's very possible to find a perfect fit. I highly recommend looking for something that offers Interactive sex toy options too - just so you have the option to use The Handy and any other Interactive sex toys you own.
