Here’s a handy guide to finding the device that’s right for your personal time. From a basic headset to ones that support teledildonic accessories, let us help you help yourself.

The best VR headsets for porn

If you have $15 to spend: Google Cardboard

Announced all the way back in 2014, Google Cardboard is many people’s first dance with virtual reality. A simple, cheap, yet well-constructed cardboard container you pop your smartphone into to view whatever content you like. Utilizing apps that use the gyroscopic sensors in your smartphone Google Cardboard gives you a basic VR porn experience for just about $15. Sadly the cardboard frame lacks the comfort of other models, but hey it’s $15. If you want to go a different route, BadoinkVR, a subscription porn service, will send you a free Google Cardboard VR headset just for signing up. Just be mindful that cardboard is a porous material.

If you have $44: HOMiDO V2 Virtual Reality Headset

Offering exceptional comfort and quality at a low-budget price, HOMiDO is a contender in the budget VR market. Offering a 100-degree field of vision, a comfortable foam band around the eyes to keep viewing comfortable, and focal length adjustments for near- and far-sighted users, there’s a lot of love in this simple package. Just insert your smartphone, download some porn apps, and get started. Its best feature is a built-in action button that allows you to operate your smartphone without needing to remove it from the headset case. Compatible with smartphones with a 4.5-inch to 6-inch screen HOMiDO is a solution almost anyone can afford.

If you have $59 and want a headset that will work with almost every modern smartphone: Pansonite Vr Headset

All of the high-end VR headsets either require a computer or specific smartphone to work. Not the Pansonite VR headset; it’s for the people. Working with any smartphone between 4 and 6 inches, the Pansonite VR is a budget workhorse. Beyond working with almost every major smartphone, the Pansonite VR comes 3D ready. Take advantage of the incredible breakthroughs sites like RealJam VR in 3D.

The adjustable straps that help attach the device to your head make this a killer set for VR porn fans, just by nature of keeping your hands free. Each set also includes a bluetooth controller so you don’t need to constantly take your phone out. You don’t even need to worry about sound thanks to the Pansonite’s build in earphones. For under $60 you can’t do better.

If you have $199 and only want a VR headset to use while watching porn: PVR IRIS

The PVR IRIS is a standalone VR headset, meaning you don’t need to plug it into any external devices in order to watch your wildest fantasies come to life. Using cutting edge technology and a WiFi connection, the device can access the cloud or individual VR porn apps for users to stream, download, and play content. It’s even Bluetooth enabled should you want to pair it with any of your sex toys!

The 5.5-inch screen display has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and plays back video in 6K. But what really sets it apart from other VR goggles is its use of Fresnel optics, anti-distortion, and anti-dispersion systems that cooperate with an auto-adjustment feature to keep you from getting a headache (or dizzy). It also means that when you turn around, look down, or change your perspective, the image stays crystal clear and in your line of view.

If you have $299 and are ready for a real virtual reality experience: Oculus Quest 2

You’ll notice we just made a massive jump. That’s because we’re no longer in the realm of smartphones. Most higher end VR headsets need a computer to work, but the Oculus Quest has changed the game by being both standalone and wireless. It also offers a stunning 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye, making it the highest resolution option outside of the HP Reverb G2.

Oculus Quest 2 has special Touch controllers that allow you to play some games with the device. You can even use an Xbox One controller with it. That won’t come in handy while watching porn, but if you’re buying a $299 headset, it’s nice to know you’ve got options for the rest of the day. The only downside is you need a Facebook account to use it.

If you have $899 and want a professional VR set up: HTC Vive Cosmos Elite

HTC Vive Cosmos Elite is one of the two top of the line home VR experiences at the moment (the other being the notoriously pricey Valve Index). With a 110-degree field of view, 2880 x 1700 resolution, and a 90Hz refresh rate, Vive is a powerhouse. However, its killer feature is the Lighthouse tracking base. This incredible piece of tech gives you up to 160 sq. feet of play space for particularly active games.

The new flip-up design allows you to quickly jump out of VR and back into the real world. That’s a godsend when you’re watching porn. Vive also features incredible support from Steam, offering a wider range of games for your viewing pleasure. However, unless gaming is dramatically important to you, we would probably choose Oculus over Vive. The money you save is dramatic, and unless you have a massive house you won’t need 160 sq. feet of play space.
