Oculus Go VR Porn HeadsetA week has passed since the highly anticipated launch of the Oculus Go VR Porn Headset (a.k.a. Oculus Go) and early reviews for the new wireless HMD are quite positive. Many VR porn consumers have been comparing their Oculus Go viewing experience with that of the Gear VR and the Go’s performance has been impressive. It’s great news for the adult industry as many content producers will benefit handsomely if the Go can finally take VR mainstream.

Calling it the Oculus Go VR Porn Headset might be a bit much, but several consumers have already stated their intentions to use the Go strictly as a VR porn viewing device. And while there are a few inconveniences that users must deal with when watching VR porn on the Oculus Go, it’s overall performance makes it a great device for fans of adult content.

The Oculus Go can be loosely described as an all-in-one version of the Samsung Gear VR. Both headsets are large plastic shells, but the Go is slightly more comfortable with better ergonomics. The Go is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and comes with 3GB of RAM and either 32GB ($199) or 64GB ($249) of storage. The headset recognizes 3DOF and features a 2560×1440 fast-switching LCD screen with a 101º (unofficial) FOV.

The Go isn’t built for high-end gaming, but it’s specs are more than adequate for VR porn consumption. The non-expandable storage is certainly an inconvenience and the Go’s inability to handle videos rated 5K and above is a major drawback. Those are some big negatives, but they are acceptable given the Go’s price and the superior visuals it provides.

The best part about the Go is that it sets a great baseline for what the minimum quality VR headset should be going forward. The Google Cardboard headsets were cheap and did serve a purpose, but it’s really time for the VR industry to move beyond the introductory phase and finally go mainstream. The Oculus Go looks like it might be the perfect device to make that happen.
