Is VR porn the way back to the golden era



If you’re a kid of the 70s or 80s, you’ll remember the kind of porn was produced at that point of time. Porn wasn’t restricted to just a few sex positions and there would be more meat in a video than what we get now-a-days.

It was referred to as the golden era. The reason why porn from that era is always the gold standard is purely down to the compact value it provided. Videos had a definite storyline, good acting, hot sex scenes and some of the best performers. Despite there being more talent now than ever before the overall quality has declined.

There are a few reasons for this. As with anything, people’s taste in porn changed. Instead of looking for more connection and chemistry, people opted for direct action without any BS. That’s what they got.

The content in the 90s till recently was filled with hardcore sex that really didn’t care much for plot or overall production quality. However, recently there have been few amateur production houses that started working on creating content focussed on erotica rather than slapstick sex.

That trend has followed into VR porn as well. With VR though, studios are forced to incorporate more plot and chemistry since otherwise the content becomes monotonous. They are also forced to create content where the performers have to interact and form a chemistry with the audience.

This has lead to a very dynamic change in the mindset. People now look for content that actually engages them. That’s why there are new niches which previously were popular only in pockets. Niches like striptease, lesbian masturbation and solo were popular but never top of the pile.

These niches have something in common. They are more erotica-based rather than hardcore. As a result, studios now have to think twice about who to cast, which kind of story to follow and how to visualise the end product. Plus, there’s an added focus on visual quality and overall technical specification, which was previously missing.

As a result, fans are now more part of the production process than ever before. Since, trends are basically dictated by fans, the new-found interest in production process, will only help studios better their product or else become extinct.

That is how its always been and there’s little doubt it will happen again. For example, the likes of Tinto Brass, Joseph Sarno and Russ Meyer had to forgo their style of production as the audience outgrew them.

As VR porn progresses further, the impetus will be on creating more inclusive content. Moving into AR porn, content might be majorly focused on one-on-one experiences like in private webcam shows. As a result, VR porn might very well be the second coming of the golden era.
