There are seveal of ways to view porn in VR already, but a standalone VR that doesn’t require any cables or using a smartphone adds a new level of convenience to enjoy VR content for adults.
The Oculus GO is definitely not the only option, but one that does require your attention, as this device is the closest to having optimal experience without the need to have expensive computers and premium grade headset.
With the Oculus Go, you can get away with just a few hundred bucks to catch up with the latest trend in porn.

Overall Design

Standalone VR
We have tested a good amounts of VR headsets over the past years, and the Oculus GO is an easy way to get started to enjoy whole variety of different VR content.
First, it’s a nicely integrated package that comes with a pointer-style controller, rather than gamepad type such as the Samsung Gear VR, which runs on single AA battery.
For thos who have experienced a smartphone-based VR headset before, particularly a Gear VR-based one that utilize Oculus software, then you are probably no stranger to the basic options it has to offer. Most notably, there is no dials or knobs to adjust focal length, where in contrast can be found on smartphone headsets, yet there is a spacer to allow the device to work for people that wear glasses.
Located on the top-center, there is the power on-off button. Simply hold it down for several seconds to power the device on or off, or if it’s already switched on, you just need to tap it will to pause whatever you were watching and put the device to sleep, probably very useful if someone walks in and starts to talk to you.

Located next to the power button, there is a volume control, which is crucial to know if you’re about to begin watching 360 porn content, but don’t have your favorite headphone around to plug in to the auxiliary jack located on the side.
Precisely, the Oculus GO is 190mm x 105mm x 115mm, weighing 468 grams. When in use, the weight doesn’t feel too heavy, and appears lighter than using something such as a GearVR powered by a Samsung phone. The Oculus Go is the same weight as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets too.
Oculus Go Specs:
  • 5.5” 2,560 x 1,440 WQHD (538 PPI) LCD display
  • 72 Hz max refresh rate
  • 32 GB or 64 GB Internal Storage
  • Claimed 2.5 hours battery life per full charge

How to Play VR Porn on the Oculus GO

To watch VR porn on the Oculus GO, there are a few different options.
You can either stream it in the browser from a VR porn site such Vrporntimes, that supports streaming, or through local storage through an app such as Plex.
If you want to have the highest image quality, you may download the scenes and watch it in the Oculus Player or SkyBox Video Player app, which is available to download inside the Oculus store for free.

How to stream VR porn on the Oculus GO

One of the cool benefits of the Oculus GO vs a smartphone-based VR headset is that the Oculus Go has been designed for a single purpose, which means that all preloaded apps and services actually work very well together.
In the case of streaming VR porn directly from sites that provide it, you would follow the same step-by-step procedures.
Open the Oculus browser > Navigate and log-in to your preferred VR porn site > Choose video > Hit Play
We tested the browser with several different sites, of which VRBangers and BaDoinkVR and worked best for direct streaming.
The Oculus browser, when accessing a site that has streaming function enabled, pretty much produces the same result of BaDoinkVR’s virtual theater mode. This method which also works great on the Oculus GO is definitely a great feature. We like this feature because that it provides a level of convenience and ease of use to what others are used to with operating premium grade VR devices.
With that said, streaming directly isn’t exactly going to provide you the best immersive experience, while the same is true with the Oculus GO.
Streaming is definitely convenient, but only after you’ve got there are slight difference to which video resolution perform better for certain site in contrast to the other.

How to View downloaded VR porn on the Oculus GO

Watching downloaded VR content on the Oculus GO is a simple task. What you need is to use the pre-loaded video player, or download the SkyBoxVR player app from the Oculus Store. We recommend giving both video players a try at first to see which works best for your desired VR porn company, but generally in our testing, SkyBox bit more reliable for HD content playback. Here are the step-by-step procedures.
Launch the Oculus Browser > Navigate and Log-in to your preferred site > Select a Video > Select desired Resolution to Download > Open SkyBox or Oculus Video Player 
In our experiments the difference between a 1080p version vs 4K or higher was actually easily noticeable, and you definitely would need to go for a 4K option if you have it. Arguably, trying 6K one on a site like VR Bangers would not prevent the video from working altogether, but it would likely playback at a slower frame rate than intended, producing somewhat of a jerky feel.
If you rather to stream from a local DLNA media server through an app like Plex, all you need is to select a different video source in the SkyBox app where you are about to open it.

Oculus GO for VR Porn: In Action

As you’ve probably realized by this time, it’s the convenience of the Oculus GO that makes this device appealing than any other headsets before. This is true whether you are watching porn or just simply playing games.
That convenience arrives at a bit of a premium, as you might expect, yet the GO also forces us to make a few compromises too. For instance, the screen resolution is 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, which is good, but it's not in 4K. Instead, it is 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, which is still great. There are few compromises that you need to offset with the premium quality.
Nevertheless, the Oculus GO has only 3 degrees of freedom instead of the 6 provided by a room-scale virtual systems. For virtual porn viewing, this actually makes no difference.While gaming, it mean you can’t move and walk around within the virtual environment, while controlling your avatar with the controller.
One minor complaint we had is that it would also be nice if downloads continued in the browser, even after switching to the video player app.
What this means is that you can’t watch one, while another scene downloads, unless you are stream directly in the browser while downloading another.
Battery lasts about 1 hour of playback time, with about 1 hour of charging time.
Oculus claims that a full charge can enable the Oculus GO to operate for 2.5 hours. What’s annoying is when the headsets overheats and you are repeatedly interrupted with a popup message telling you your Oculus is overheating, and you should stop using it for a while while it cools downs. Not really useful if you are in the process of handling yourself.
The only truly happen within the first few days of having the headset, when you are installing and downloading lots of apps and content.

For the privacy-minded, it’s also great to note that the Facebook-owned Oculus doesn’t force Oculus users to sign in with your Facebook account, so you can just register using your preferred email address instead, and maintain that privacy some people prefer.

Is the Oculus GO Worth Buying for Watching VR Porn?

Absolutely yes! Or maybe not for certain people. To answer this question really depends what your available options are and defining your expectations. At the moment, we must decide between smartphone headsets, the Oculus GO, high-end Oculus, HTC Vive, or the PSVR. The Oculus GO gets the most adoption by far.
If you already got a Samsung smartphone and a GearVR headset, then it’s probably not worth the money to purchase an Oculus GO simply for viewing porn.
Yet, if you are used to Google cardboard VR headset or even the Google Daydream, then the Oculus Go is huge step up in terms of convenience and better quality. The simplicity of it all is all worth the $200USD.
