Early VR porn consist only from simple fisheye videos that are reproduced to a sphere. User can watch around while sitting [cameraman/rig is also sitting/stationary]. If PSVR can access web browser [or the other way around :) ] there will be a way to play those spherical videos on PS4.
It is a little more complicated than that.

They are 360 stereoscopic videos, and you need a VR player to play them.

Let's first see when will it be able to play Youtube 360 videos.

Sony won't allow porn in their walled garden and it will be the downfall of PSVR. Betamax all over again.
Sony does not allow porn on PS3 and PS4, and yet they are all used for porn all the time.

Browser and webapps are a key. Nature will find a way.

VR porn seems like a step too far for me anyway.
Not to say anybody shouldn't watch it (which they will, and it probably won't be considered weird in the near future either).
The fact that people are most likely working on VR anime porn shit really creeps me out, seems too enabling of weird waifu culture.
Why? Why do you care? Are you afraid of the golddiggers? :p

Somebody will surely make the thing also PC compatible... there you go. Even now you can already watch webVR porn on some sites to "test it" and everything.

One day I'll travel to a parallel universe where video game porn was developed in tandom with real games, so they have AAA AO games. Assuming society hasn't collapsed in on itself from the debauchery, I won't be returning

Hmm, so these VR porn files could just be copied like standard .mp4 files? Strange, why would these companies not want to protect their stuff? Good news if true then ;)
As it is right now, most of these files is just .mp4, the thing is if you watch them through, say - MPC-HC or something else that doesn't support VR you'd get a.. just really weird video split in two.

How much 3D porn content so far?
Not a lot, but it's getting there.

This.

Not sure who'd want to stay dick in hand in front of their Ps4s with a headset on, but as long as the console has a mediaplayer for 360 stereo videos (which can also be... not porn you know) i don't see a problem.
You'll just have to play them from an external drive.
It's not like VR videos are much more advanced than that so far, anyway.
It'd basically Google Street on steroids.

I assume most consumers of VR porn will be on GearVr though, for obvious reasons.

Final design of the oculus controller has been revealed:



And VR porn is a high risk pursuit. You can't see, you're wearing headphones and you're cut off from the outside world while cracking one off. Anyone could walk in on you and youd never know. The internet is going to be awash with some hilarious videos though.

Do you want me to respond sincerely or just type "lol?"
Honestly I don't care that much, I just think it can potentially create unhealthy attitudes towards women by simultaneously disregarding them and idolising them.
But you could say the same thing about porn with real-life actors I suppose.

Since you can use the Rift on PC, I assume that there will be more content developed for it than PS VR - including adult content. I've been very disappointed by Sony in the past with them releasing a product and not properly supporting it after release (ahem PS Move and Vita TV) so I'm taking the wait and see approach on PS VR.

I think a better question is which device will offer the most content and therefore bang (no pun intended) for the buck?

If you want Porn on your VR headset, go to PC. There's plenty of porn already available that's compatible with VR.

"Porn" on PSVR with the PS4 will never be more than lewd poses and some moaning.
I can work with that.

I know VR is all about turning the "elephant in the room" into a supermodel, but it's a little rude to talk about your SO that way.

You strike me as the type who indulges in the odd dangerous Big Telly Wank.
Big telly? Pfft. You haven't lived until you've got the big telly going and multiple tabs on any screen that's attached to something with net ability. The soundscape is sublime!

people have taken this porn argument too far. Porn solidified the VHS era and the early internet. Because it could be done in the privacy of your own home and the internet was readily available interaction with a porn star. Porns reach is done when it comes to accelerating access or adoption rate for anything in this era. Porn has become also ran and mundane, now it's fetish driven. VR doesn't need porn, you need porn.

I don't think this is high on the list of what people buy a PlayStation 4 peripheral for. I might be wrong though...

Well, we basically had camgirls and softcore porn with Playroom and Live from Playstation... so I think PSVR porn could squeeze through the cracks.
it's what we all really want from VR anyway

I feel that if this is a legit deal breaker for you, you have bigger problems in life.
Elephant in the room? Yeah, for hikikomori weirdos perhaps.

I just think it's really weird to outright dismiss an entertainment device because you can't fucking jack off with it.

unless people think of workarounds I can't see this popping up on PS4, if that hololens thing from MS takes off and it's not just a Xbox thing I could see that being a big thing for porn. You could just put porn stars banging on your bed, I could see that level of immersion being popular.

or just something like a snuff movie...

You mean smaller problems, right? People that care about that, have the time to think about this. I don't know why this is something that shouldn't be discussed. You guys know that every media form has only taken off because of porn, right? VHS, CD, DVD, etc.

It's a legitmate question.

Do you want me to respond sincerely or just type "lol?"

Yeah you could say that and we have enough of these bs threads in the OT with that degrading woman bullshit. Most of men that watch people do not think differently of women. People that have these unhealthy attitudes already failed before in life.

You cannot download media and games from websites in a closed system. & I'm talking about vrporn, not youporn or whatever.
Sony isn't going to allow a porn app on their system, so the only hope is the web browser.

You don't have to download anything.

Youtube already has working 360 videos, that you can move around. It shouldn't be too hard to modify these types of things for VR.

Aside from the numerous and dangerous social issues that most porn perpetuates it won't be allowed on PSVR for pretty obvious reasons. If console manufacturers don't allow AO rated games they won't allow porn, and rightly so.
