How to watch VR porn on your Oculus Quest

You might know the Oculus Quest as Facebook’s standalone virtual reality gaming headset. But there’s something else the Quest can do: porn. Yes, the Oculus Quest can access many VR porn sites. All it takes to get started is an internet connection and a VR browser.

For the uninitiated, the Quest is a powerful virtual reality device that comes with its own Android-based operating system and supports six degrees of freedom with the Oculus Touch controllers. Unlike Oculus’ flagship offering, the Oculus Rift, you don’t need a powerful PC to enjoy the Quest. Just charge it up, plug batteries into your Oculus Touch controllers, and the platform is ready to go. While the Quest is primarily designed for playing VR games, it also doubles as a multimedia device, not unlike watching Blu-Ray movies and listening to Spotify on PlayStation 4.

While pricey—the 64 GB model costs $399—the Oculus Quest is by no means a stranger to porn. If you’re interested in getting started, here’s what you need to know. (Note that this article specifically goes over VR video porn. You can also play porn games on Oculus Quest, but the process is a bit more complicated.)

How to watch Oculus Quest Porn

To get started watching Oculus Quest porn, you need a browser. Luckily, the Quest comes right out of the box with all you need. The Oculus Browser is a built-in web browser with WebVR support, which lets users jump straight into web-based virtual reality content without a third-party app. That means watching VR porn is as simple as visiting one of several sites offering VR adult content and activating the WebVR plugin. Some sites, including SexLikeReal,  have their own VR hub for quick browsing.

Bear in mind that Oculus is owned by Facebook, which doesn’t exactly have the best track record on users’ privacy, sex workers’ rights, or porn as a whole. When reached for comment, Oculus told UploadVR in April 2019 that the Oculus Browser “does not share information with the Facebook family of apps unless you choose to log into Facebook via FB login.” Nor does Oculus “transmit your complete browser history to our servers,” although it does collect domain name data to “assess how many unique users visit a specific website” for “compatibility and performance” purposes.

Oculus said it will “disassociate” this information from users “because we only care that a person visited a site,” and that data is only stored for 30 days. Additionally, Oculus said its private browsing mode doesn’t log data about domain names used.

The best Oculus Browser alternatives

However, if your goal is to minimize your reliance on Oculus’ proprietary software, then you may want to consider Firefox Reality. Mozilla’s VR browser lets users surf the web within a virtual interface. Like the Oculus Browser, Firefox Reality also supports WebVR content. It also includes an in-browser social network called Hubs.

Mozilla traditionally has a solid track record on protecting users’ privacy, and Firefox Reality is no different. The VR browser uses Enhanced Tracking Protection to prevent advertisers from tracking your personal data in-app. In an era where online privacy is frighteningly minimal on 2D devices, getting a head start on protecting your mixed reality usage from corporate eyes is a good idea.

Alternatively, you can download VR porn and view it straight from your Oculus Quest. While the Oculus Quest comes with its own video app by default, there are numerous additional free apps you can use to watch VR porn, such as Skybox VR. For more advanced Oculus Quest users, sideloading grants additional VR porn viewing options, such as the Playa VR player. We recommend using SideQuest to quickly and easily add new community-oriented apps onto your Quest. For more information on getting started with SideQuest, visit the program’s official installation instructions.

Because most VR porn either supports WebVR or can be downloaded onto your device, the Oculus Quest is well-equipped to watch almost any video porn service available.
