Virtual reality porn is a growing market and is expected to become a multi-billion dollar industry over the next few years.
It’s little wonder that the adult entertainment industry is keen to push the barriers here and offer viewers as immersive an experience as possible.
BaDoink was one of the first pioneering sites to do just that.
In this guide, we review BaDoinkVR, one of the top three dedicated VR porn content providers to see just what they are getting right.
The Story Behind BaDoinkVR
BaDoink was launched in 2006 as an online porn streaming service.
The premium content that it provided users was capable of being viewed across multiple platforms and was a popular, if only moderately successful, adult site.
However, in 2015 the company was one of the first to spot the rising trend of virtual reality porn, and swiftly launched a dedicated platform, BaDoinkVR.
A pioneer for the VR space, BaDoink was so committed to its new venture that it handed out 10,000 free VR headsets in the 24 hours following its launch.
It gave away a further 20,000 in the following weeks.
It was certainly a wise investment.
While there are now plenty of rival VR porn sites, BaDoink is consistently listed in the top three by most critics, including us here at RLN.
In 2016, BaDoinkVR won Adult Site of the Year: Virtual Reality in the XBIZ Awards as well as winning the Free Speech Coalition Internet Company of the Year award.
With an eye to the future, the New York based company is currently working with Dutch teledildonics manufacturer Kiiroo to produce more interactive content.
The partnership is hoped to push the boundaries of existing haptic technology and promote sex education as well as adult entertainment.
We were excited to try BaDoinkVR several years ago, and we certainly weren’t disappointed.
The site has grown from strength to strength since then.
Videos on BaDoink VR
BaDoinkVR’s library is technologically more advanced than the VR content you can pick up for free on tube sites.
The videos are all exclusively filmed for VR viewing and incorporate a hands-free mode that means you can use head movements to navigate the screen.
BaDoinkVR currently has a library of around 450+ scenes, all filmed in full 180 (some in 360) and in 4K vision. If you have an Android device, you can use their porn app to access the content on the move.
Some of the earlier releases are a little patchy in quality, but the latest videos show just far the VR scene has advanced.
The content is compatible with most VR headsets including Google (or other) cardboard headsets using your smartphone, Oculus, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear, Playstation VR and DayDream.
The audio is binaural and offers a more immersive experience.
Members can stream or download an unlimited amount of VR porn, though one day trial members are restricted to just a solitary serving.
Despite the fact that the main markets for VR porn are to be found in Asia (Thailand, Hong Kong, The Phillipines, Taiwan in the top four spots), the videos offered by BaDoinkVR are filmed using western performers and cater for a mainstream audience.
Though the videos are hardcore, the range is still limited and doesn’t cater for fetish or BDSM tastes or any other niche area of the adult entertainment market.
This is a recurring theme, with many of the top VR porn brands — Naughty America VR, WankzVR, VR Bangers, HoloGirlsVR etc — all choosing to focus on the tried and tested.
The tried and tested being… mainstream porn, with A+ porn stars, in fairly conventional settings.
The hook remains the virtual reality experience itself.
That doesn’t detract from what is a superb variety of pornstars, scenarios and settings.
Positions are reasonably varied but again cover a usual POV selection of doggy, cowgirl and missionary.
Most scenes feature good oral selections and some include titfucking which is also pretty good.
You can select videos by pornstar or using the filter to find scenes which feature tagged keywords including interracial, Latina, anal, squirting, step mom etc.
All of the videos average at around 30 minutes in length with new videos being uploaded each week.
What Does BaDoinkVR Cost?
Membership with BaDoinkVR can be purchased on a one day free trial, monthly or annual basis.
Costs for membership are charged as follows:
- One Day Trial Membership: $1.00
- Monthly Membership: $24.95/month
- Annual Membership: $89.95/year
- Lifetime Membership: $299.95
The caveat with the 1 day trial is that you are restricted to a single video, and through mobile streaming only.
The monthly cost is in line with what other VR sites are charging.
But we think that’s a great deal on the basis that BaDoinkVR has a far superior content library to the average VR site.
And it’s growing fast.
Other Sites on the BaDoink Network
The original BaDoink site still operates under the banner ‘BaDoink VIP’ and offers a range of content available to view on smartphone, tablet, TV and even Roku.
At the time of our review, BaDoink VIP has over 65,000 scenes available in a variety of streaming and downloadable bandwidths. The content is a mix of exclusive scenes as well as footage made by other studios. Around 10% of the content available is filmed in HD.
The only specialty cosplay VR porn site, BaDoink brings dressing up fans exclusive HD videos shot in virtual reality.
There are some great parody scenes here from PokeBallz (Pokemon), XXX Men (X-Men) and Fuck Bill (Kill Bill) as well as an Overwatch scene that should delight fans of this popular video game.
Though the content is duplicated from the main site, it is a nice portal to find a readily available library of costume play porn.
Membership to the VR Cosplay is part of the main membership to BaDoink VR.
BaDoinkVR Review: Is It Any Good?
With VR porn only just blossoming in the mainstream market, BaDoinkVR is one of the big players both in terms of volume of content as well as quality.
This company is producing high-end content using the very best technology.
The end result is a fully immersive experience that competes with any other VR porn site on the market.
Whilst some of the features aren’t without the odd glitch (head tracking in theater mode sometimes locks up), the site is polished and delivers an excellent user experience from start to finish.
We’ve seen other VR porn sites charging more for less content, so there’s no doubt that the $24.95 monthly sub is a decent deal.
As for the content itself, the range is impressive and shows that BaDoinkVR is trying to cover as many bases as they can.
The list of famous porn stars appearing in their library certainly seems to be growing by the month.
Overall, we think BaDoinkVR deserves its reputation as one of the top three VR porn sites in the world.
