Looking for some BDSM thrills in virtual reality?
Enter the world of Kink VR.
A specialist studio offering fetish content that can be viewed using any headset, Kink VR has become one of the top rated VR porn sites in the under-served BDSM genre.
In this Kink VR review, we take a look at what membership gets you, the story behind the website, and how its videos compare to the competition.
Let’s get started!
The Story Behind Kink VR
Parent website, Kink.com has been providing alternative, fetish porn to the market since 1997 and is in its 20th year at the forefront of kinky adult entertainment.
The number one fetish porn website in the world, Kink.com has a huge following in a crowded space.
It was no surprise when they expanded into the virtual reality sector in 2015 and launched KinkVR.com.
This new VR offering is aimed at delivering immersive, POV fetish porn to its existing member base.
Based in San Francisco, the company produces its own content through a number of subsidiary studios including Hogtied.com and Behindkink.com, controversially using the San Francisco Armory site to do so.
This historic building in the Mission District of San Francisco was an arsenal for the US National Guard and was built in 1912.
Objections to the use of the Moorish Revival style castle were successful when Kink.com announced that it would cease to continue production of its movies here in January 2017.
A damn shame if you ask us!
Kink VR is at the forefront of BDSM-themed virtual reality content.
With the industry still in its infancy, most studios (Naughty America, BaDoinkVR, WankzVR, etc) have chosen to focus on mainstream porn.
Which is great, but somewhat vanilla.
A few other studios have chosen to focus on the fetish market, including XVirtual for hardcore and sci-fi porn, or Virtual Taboo for family-play.
Kink VR sits in the sweet spot of being a trusted name in a huge market that is ripe for virtual reality immersion.
We were excited to try it, and it didn’t disappoint.
Kink VR Videos & Porn Stars
It has to be said, five years after launch, KinkVR has a relatively small selection of videos.
We counted around 100+ scenes, ranging in length from 8 mins to 21 mins.
In VR porn terms, this is both a small library and a short running time.
Though the selection is limited at the moment, there is diversity in choice with lesbian, gay and TS being catered for within the mix.
The site is easy to navigate and allows you to search through the available clips using tags, release date and you can even filter the results of your search to show the position of the POV in which the clip was shot.
The scenes include a number of popular tags including:
- Anal fisting and stretching
- Caning and flogging
- Prostate massage
- Rope bondage and suspension play
- Edging and teasing
Unlike other VR porn sites that appeal to a mainstream market, Kink VR is very much created for a fetish audience by a fetish community.
The result is more authentic scenes with edgier play and without the mediocrity which some ‘vanilla’ sites paint their ‘BDSM’ offering.
Models will be well known in the kink community and include big names like Mia Li, Mickey Mod, Ella Nova and Ariel X.
The crux here is that while you don’t get as much content for your money with Kink VR… how much can you actually consume, anyway?
Kink VR is aiming to satisfy a variety of alternative tastes, and so its videos are a nice break from the vanilla cookie-cutter format that is prevalent elsewhere, and on free VR porn sites.
How to Watch Kink VR Porn
The site supports most devices including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Gear VR, Android, iPhone, PlayStation and generic headsets.
The shoots are a mix of 180-360 degree camera with most offering binaural sound and being shot at 60 fps.
The films are all HD and come in a range of POV angles.
As is always the case, downloading will result in a much better experience than streaming. We found download speeds to be pretty good, but the drop in quality when streaming was substantial.
Each clip has a suggested viewing position to get the best immersive experience from the shoot.
One of the great additions to this site is the option to switch between Dom and Sub perspectives.
Other VR porn sites offer ‘alternate perspectives’, but if there’s one genre where the feature adds a lot of extra value, it’s this one!
What Does Kink VR Cost?
Subscription to KinkVR includes unlimited streaming and downloads.
The cost of membership is charged as follows:
- Monthly Pass: $24.95 per month
- Annual Pass: $71.40 (equivalent to $5.95 per month)
- All Access Pass: $179.40 (equivalent to $14.95 per month)
The all access pass gives subscribers additional membership to Kink.com’s sites HoloGirlsVR and BurningAngelVR.
New subscribers also receive a free Google Cardboard.
Bonus Content and Freebies
Subscribers who opt for an All Access Pass also receive free membership to the popular adult social networking and game site, Red Light Centre (RLC).
This is the same deal that is offered with the HoloGirlsVR subscription.
RLC is a 3D fantasy world like Second Life; part game and part social community.
The site allows members to live out a different kind of personality through a virtual world populated by other members. Interactions often extend beyond the game environment with networks being formed with users who have shared interests.
For some, however, it is the anonymity of the site that makes it so enduring and it allows users the opportunity to explore new aspects of their sexuality.
The All Access Pass also grants membership to two additional sites, HoloGirls VR and Burning Angel VR.
Burning Angel VR has 20 VR videos available which adds a further 5 hours of content to the Kink VR library. Scenes are based around tattoo girls and alternative porn.
The HoloGirls VR site won the Best Virtual Reality Innovation site at the AVN Awards and offers a real mixed bag of content.
From parody Cosplay clips to gang bang collections, medical fetish to JOI, you can get a crazy mix of VR porn here.
Some of it complements fetish tastes, whilst other videos will be more mainstream.
Kink VR Review: Our Verdict
Though almost five years old now, KinkVR is still hamstrung by a smaller library of content than many of its rivals.
The focus has been on producing high quality shoots using innovative techniques, angles and direction to create a great viewing experience.
Whilst this may have been done at the expense of producing a greater quantity of films, it does ensure that what you get is well worth watching.
It has also ensured that the content on the site is unique so members can be assured that they won’t find the same clips elsewhere.
The membership fees for a month will allow most people to view the whole library and we can’t imagine why many people would opt for an annual pass.
However, the All Access Pass that gives you subscription to additional sites does look like a better value option.
Unrivalled for its VR fetish content and quality, KinkVR.com is certainly well worth a trial to experience virtual reality porn at its kinkiest.
