Porn actress Mir-Ausziehen is wearing a lacy black bra. She’s sprawled across the mattress while she is gone down on by performer Lance Hart.
The 2 are starring in the VR porn movie Empowering Ava, the tale of an erotica writer (Mir-Ausziehen) whose partner (Hart) is intrigued by some of the sex she writes about. He desires to try them out and Eva is more than happy to oblige.
When she reclines for a moment of submission, audiences have the option to zoom out to ogle the muscle rear end of Hart, or to give attention to her response to her own mounting pleasure. The visual experience is dominated by neither male nor female perspective.
Is this what the future of alleged “porn for girls” looks like? Filmmakers Erika Lust, who is currently planning her first VR porn movie, and Angie Rowntree, whose company Sssh.com launched Empowering Ava on August 18, believe thus. They are starting to investigate the potential of sensual VR tech for female audiences.
There are several problems film makers should conquer before VR porn can catch on among female audiences.
For starters, porn audiences in general are still male. Despite a recent rise in the recognition of female-pleasant porn, in 2015 the adult content giant PornHub published a study estimating that just 24% of its worldwide audience were girls.
Virtual reality porn is rising as a lucrative junction between technology and sexual activity, but so far the bulk of sensual VR filmmaking has focused on the male point of view today. As Stefanie Iris Weiss wrote for SheKnows: “it is completely designed for the male gaze… male porn performers aren’t observable at all because the viewer is the protagonist.”
“It is really important to give folks the choice to observe it on a desktop, iPad, phone or a headset,” she stated.
The multi-outlook toggles enable audiences to discover the angles they find most attractive, whether that is focusing on the female performers’ delight or zooming out to relish a see of the male performer’s body.
Rowntree uncovered the technology obviously lent itself to solving among the chief problems that irks female porn customers: genuineness.
“It becomes very, quite natural,” she stated. “We do not strive to do money shots. Our focus is enjoyment. We are looking or the natural flow… The comments we’ve gotten has been quite positive…[Spectators] genuinely loved the connection between Ava and Lance.”
The freedom to control their view within the scene was also liked by female viewers. The movie received such positive comments from Sssh.com subscribers that Rowntree already has plans for 2 more female-centric VR pictures.
