Pornhub are backing VR Goggles in a big way

The adult film site believes that this will be the next step in home "entertainment"

Historically, whatever technology was backed by porn, the rest of the entertainment industry followed suit.

Back when the world couldn't decide between Betamax tapes or VHS, the porn industry went with VHS, and before long, Betamax were completely gone from the market. Ditto when LaserDisc and DVD both arrived around the same time, and the survivor was the one that the porn industry decided to use.

Now it appears that the adult entertainment industry is getting ready to make their decision with the next step in technology advancement, as PornHub are partnering with BaDoinkVR to feature virtual reality adult content on their website for the first time ever.

Vice President of Pornhub Corey Price stated: "At Pornhub it is our duty to provide our global audience with the latest in cutting edge technology. Virtual reality is the next phase in the constantly metamorphosing world of adult entertainment, and will provide users with a mesmeric experience unlike anything they’ve seen before."

The content will be viewable via Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and Google Cardboard, and to commemorate the launch, Pornhub is giving away 10,000 pairs of VR goggles absolutely for free, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
