Many of these virtual game studios, such as 3DX Chat, have had every intention of bridging the gap between virtual reality and gaming by offering compatibility with the most up-to-date and current headsets.This has resolutely been the Oculus Rift, which offers a totally immersive 360 degree panorama with excellent head tracking, but also amps up the graphics with some of the highest resolution possible – the skin tones, shadowing, colors, and sound are all synced to offer as realistic an experience, socially and sexually, as possible.As a result, there is a rather large spectrum in the VR sex game industry, ranging from excellent to poor – and because so many companies are hoping to take advantage of the VR porn market, there is an inevitable side-effect: quantity often trumps quality, especially when it comes to the number of developers or studios hoping to cash in a quick buck.
And companies like Red Light Center seem to understand this on a very primal level.
Once you decide to take things further with another member on the game, there are a variety of different sexual positions, and these are usually suggested or offered by one party and accepted by the other (and there is a rather inclusive selection, whether you’re into a classic missionary style, or something a bit more kinky).
The idea being (if you couldn’t figure it out for yourself), that users have intercourse with a robot whilst appearing to have sex with a human inside of VR.
It works by selecting a type of Real Doll that matches with a real cam girl that you’ll see inside VR.
The porn industry has long been touted as a potential major driving factor for taking VR mainstream, though current technology is limited.
This week, though, adult streaming company Cam Soda announced Virtual Intercourse with Real People (VIRP), a service that combines VR porn with Real Doll robots.
On the other hand, VR games like Chathouse 3D and 3DX Chat are much more stable in the long run – they don’t require the same sort of maintenance, although they are always upgrading and adding new content as well.
Additionally, VR games offer something conventional virtual reality outlets (whether it be 360 degree porn videos or live cam sessions) simply can’t: an online community, in which users can make real – and lasting – connections with others.

In fact, it was the virtual sex scene that made headlines.
