Yes, the Oculus Quest is good for watching VR porn. You can just hop into the Oculus Browser and start streaming to your heart’s content. But did you know you can also play adult games on your Oculus Quest? The device supports two different techniques for enjoying VR porn games, one of which greatly benefits PC gamers with VR-ready gaming computers.

If you’re eager to use your Oculus Quest with one hand while gaming, read on for everything you need to know about the device’s VR porn game potential.


How to play VR porn games on your Oculus Quest

1) Oculus Link

The easiest and most popular method for playing VR porn games has less to do with your Quest and more to do with your computer. Using Oculus Link, it’s possible to play any VR porn game developed for the Oculus Rift.

For the uninitiated, Oculus Link is a feature in open beta on the Oculus Quest and Oculus PC app. Using a USB-C cable, you can turn your Oculus Quest into a tethered headset that more or less turns your Quest into a Rift. Any executable file with Oculus Rift support can be played via Oculus Link as long as you allow “Unknown Sources” in your Oculus app. So if you already own PC VR games like Captain Hardcore or Dominatrix Simulator, you can just plug in your Oculus Quest and play.

Beware that Oculus Link is still a work-in-progress, so expect bugs. Additionally, the official Oculus Link cable is quite expensive. You might try a cheaper alternative, such as Anker’s connector.

2) Virtual Desktop

If the Oculus Link proves too buggy, there’s another solution for playing PC VR porn games: Virtual Desktop. This app, which you can buy from the Oculus Store, lets you stream your PC’s VR display output straight to your Oculus Quest. Just connect to your host computer, fire up your preferred VR game, and play straight from within the app. All you need is a fast, stable internet connection; no wires necessary (although an Ethernet cable between your PC and router helps).

While you may see some slight blurriness from the video stream depending on your internet connection, performance and response is practically identical to using the Oculus Link. Video output is high-quality enough to provide an immersive, enjoyable, and stable experience. Multiplayer games like Pavlov VR work well with the app, provided there’s enough internet bandwidth to handle both the stream and your online connection.

There’s one complication with Virtual Desktop to keep in mind: The app does not support SteamVR streaming natively from the Oculus Quest. You’ll need to patch that in manually to use Steam’s VR library or play any porn games that require SteamVR. Read on to our next section on “sideloading” for more information.

How to play Oculus Quest VR porn games

The Oculus Store is a closed-garden platform. This means Oculus has to approve all apps for its store, and any games that fail the process cannot be downloaded and played by your average consumer on the Quest.

However, like the Oculus app on PC, the Oculus Quest allows players to run programs from “unknown sources.” This’s actually pretty easy to do. Because the Quest is an Android-based VR device, you can add custom-made apps onto your Quest through a process called “sideloading.” This unlocks a small but growing world of VR porn playable straight from your Oculus Quest without the need for a beefy gaming PC or an Oculus Link cable.

Sideloading is a relatively painless process. To get started, consider installing SideQuest on your PC, a free program and app store for third-party Oculus Quest games. While SideQuest’s store doesn’t have any VR porn games (yet), Quest owners can use SideQuest to install third-party programs onto their Quest. Additionally, the program’s installation process will automatically make your Quest ready for sideloading. Read through the program’s installation guide to get your Oculus Quest set for homebrew games, then check out SideQuest’s guide to sideloading third-party apps to learn how to add VR porn onto your Quest.

Remember that downloading and installing non-official Oculus Quest apps comes with some risk: You’re exposing your Quest to programs that have not been officially vetted from Oculus, which means malware is always a possibility. Additionally, pirating official Oculus Quest games could cost you your Oculus account. Just don’t do it.

That said, there are already several Oculus Quest-ready VR porn games that you can sideload onto your device. ImagineVR hosts seven, including Let’s Play with Anna!, a VR anime girlfriend simulator already popular on PC. Some independent porn games can be sideloaded onto the Oculus Quest if they support Oculus Go.

If you’re interested in PC VR porn games, SideQuest supports a manual patch for Virtual Desktop that enables SteamVR streaming to your Oculus Quest. Just purchase Virtual Desktop from the Oculus Store on your Quest, connect your Quest to your PC, boot up SideQuest, and download the Virtual Desktop SideQuest patch straight from the latter’s online store. This lets users stream any SteamVR game that can run on their PC, including porn games. If you’re waiting for the Quest’s NSFW library to expand, but you’re dying to play PC VR porn games, it’s a good compromise that has you set for the Quest’s (inevitable) porn-filled future.
