Naughty America VR (virtual reality)

443 posts in this topic

So apparently, this is a thing. And, perhaps more importantly, this is a thing that most people aren't going to be able to watch.

 

I don't really know what to think about it at this point. Except that it would be better if they could find a way to release it as a VR video and convert it to a regular POV video.

Is this some inside info?  ...i just googled Naughty America VR and got noting about this.

It literally happened like an hour ago. Today's Nikki Benz/Jaclyn Taylor scene is the first one they put out.

ok 2 observations: 

 

1)  So they are in effect taking one update away from the regular joes.   If this is a trial run ...no problem.

 

2)  They probably should make this is "premium site".

 

Oh well.  not much that can be done.   Don't know about you but I am in no mood to run out and get a device that probably run at least several hundred bucks just to see an occasional VR scene.   Good luck Naughty America.

The Oculus Rift is around that amount of money if you can get your hands on one (what's out there now is dev kits, and the official release isn't until next year). But Samsung Gear VR is around $200, and if you really, really wanted to try this out, you could use Google Cardboard, which uses whatever (I believe Android) smartphone you have and can be found for $10-20.

 

Which brings me to my second suggestion: You guys need to make sure this is compatible with Google Cardboard (and if it is, you need to say it is, instead of solely mentioning Gear VR), seeing as that is far and away the cheapest way to be able to watch these videos.

This is Andreas statement in the comment section for the scene.   I find it a little disturbing.

 

"Ladies & Gents,

 

We have made over 8000 movies since 2000. I would trade our entire library for the VR Experience. If you have an Android Galaxy 5 or Note, get the Samsung Gear VR. We will have an Iphone file probably next week or the week after. We are testing head sets now that are all reasonably priced around $100 to find the one we feel comfortable supporting.

 

This isn't a movie....its an experience."

 

Sounds like the days of regular non-vr scenes may be numbered.     I may very well be guilty of "chicken little sky is falling" mentality here.  But based on that statement, I get the feeling that Andreas is trying to be the pioneer of this form of porn watching and may eventually cut out regular porn for the VR experience.  

 

I have no problem with NA setting the bar for the VR experience as long as there is no intention of completely cutting off the regular scenes.   In the words of Han Solo from Star Wars...." I have a bad feeling about this".

They'd lose all the money they have if they tried to cut out traditional porn viewing. I see this being where he wants to go in the future, maybe, but it's a gimmick for the next year, at least (VR headsets won't officially be on the market until 2016), and probably for a year or two at least after that.

 

Edit: And later on in the comments he says one scene a week starting the week of 13th (of July I presume). Which makes sense.

He doesn't say one a week.... he said....

"Yes, these will be weekly updates starting the week of the 13."

nope ...not being paranoid.... you said 1  a week....I am just pointing out that updates is plural..   Could be 2.   No big deal.  Though as you point out....it is probably too early to go whole hog into it.   If they are going to go this route...it will be a gradual change   :)

Oh, and suggestion #3:

 

The people that are going to be into this are going to be the young, hip, tech-friendly crowd. Those types of people are more likely to go for a Mia Malkova or a Remy Lacroix or a Dani Daniels scene than a Nikki Benz one.

Very valid point.   So the 20 to 35 year old audience who may prefer the 18 t0 25 year performers will probably be the ones more inclined to be into the VR scenes.  So maybe MSHF and NBW may be best sites for the initial VR scenes.   

 

And for the 40 on up crowd who prefer Milfs and Cougar scenes will probably be the last to get into the VR trend.

So I downloaded it, knowing I didn't have any of the suggested gear, just wanted to have this first one because hey, you never know.  Just for shit's and giggles I tried to play it on the players I have.  VLC played it, two fairly small images, but it was really choppy and pixelated.   Windows Media Player played it pretty clearly, but it was like looking through 2 huge peepholes.  I didn't try it on anything else.  I agree with Aristotle's opening comment, not sure what to think, but it might be a good idea to find a way to release these scenes in a more traditional format in addition to the VR until the equipment is more widely available and affordable.

I have to say...when I was first introduced to VR, it was mind blowing. Now when I see this, it is mind blowing, amazing, unreal and all of the above. 

 

It is so WORTH it to get a headset. Everyone I see watch it for the first time, they are jaw dropped! 

 

DO IT!

Next week will release the iphone file. We suggest the Homido for $75 and the Mobile VR Station app for viewing. Yes, we will gradually be converting new content releases to VR with less of the standard 2D.

 

You will never want to watch a 2d Porn scene again after using VR.

Thank you for the past 7 years and for the confirmation of my initial observations.  I guess my days here may be numbered.  

So will you be eliminating standard scenes completely or will you still have some standard scenes?

 

ok....so the Homido only works if watching on a phone or can you use it on computers?

Unless by gradually you mean over the next few years, this is the biggest mistake I have ever seen you make. VR isn't ready for mass consumption this year, and it more than likely won't be ready next year either.

Like I just posted to Lauren's comment I don't have money to spend on something I won't use on more than a 30 minute porn. If ther was a ton of product out there like Mainstream movies then maybe. But there isn't.

"I understand some of you dont like change and more importantly spending money on new equipment to experience Naughty America. You pay us to help you find your fantasy and this is one step closer."
 

ok....if I understand this technology correct...the VR gear only works with certain type of Samsung smartphones.  So not only do I have to purchase the VR Gear viewer, but I have to purchase a new Samsung smartphone even though I am happy with the one I have at the moment?   So if I do the math correctly, next year....I pay $95.40 for the yearly NA membership.  About $200 for a vr device and at least $500  to $1000 for a new phone.   So from $800 to $1300 next year to watch porn?   hmmm.    All of a sudden porn has become a rich man's hobby.   :)

I don't know why he's so hung up on these more expensive solutions. Google Cardboard is like $10-20 at most, it can work with a much larger variety of phones (including the iPhone), and while it might not be as good of an experience as Gear VR, it is good enough to give people an idea of what they're missing.

 

That being said, people aren't paying for porn in droves to begin with, so to ask these people who are actually taking the step to pay for it to spend even more money just to enjoy your content is a decision that, at best, is kinda tone deaf. I'm not against them shooting VR scenes and building up a library of them. But moving away from tradition scenes this early just seems like alienating 90-95% of their customer base for no good reason.
