The VR porn business is booming. What started as a handful of experimental clips just a few years ago, has grown into an international industry with thousands of videos and a global following of over 150 million people. Fresh content is being uploaded every day, and the sheer number of genre categories may amaze you! There are straight, gay and lesbian porn, orgies and even parody scenes all shot in VR. So, where do the biggest fans of the format live?
In 2018, Pornhub, which boasts one of the biggest adult collections on the web, was the only source to share detailed statistics for the VR format. Every single day, its VR videos receive half a million views. On the whole, the fans of virtual reality sex spend as much time watching as other visitors do – under ten minutes.
Gender and Age Distribution
According to Pornhub, male users are 160% more likely to play VR videos than females. The most avid consumers are men between the ages of 25 and 34. Naturally, women do watch VR porn, too. However, most content available today is focused on fulfilling men’s sexual desires, which highlights the need for a paradigm shift. Today, videos usually start with a blowjob and end with a cumshot or a creampie. Lesbian VR also does not suffice to satisfy women’s porn needs.
The popularity of adult entertainment in VR has been growing all across the world. The USA is known as the nation with the strongest passion for porn. However, Americans seem to prefer the conventional 2D to immersion. The UK and Ireland have seen the highest rate of growth.
Interestingly, Thailand was ranked as the highest consumer despite its government’s efforts to prohibit online pornography. The trend is linked to the spread of affordable VR headsets that work with smartphones. The country is followed by Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Taiwan. Here is the full list of countries by the popularity of VR porn:

Overall, VR porn is gaining new fans across the globe. Some studios have even abandoned regular filmmaking to focus entirely on VR. With the emergence of new sex toys and haptic suits designed for VR porn, the industry is only expected to grow further.
