    In a development that will surprise absolutely no one, Oculus VR’s virtual reality headsets will be used for immersive, 3-D pornography.

    What is a bit surprising is that Facebook-owned Oculus is totally OK with that use of its upcoming platform for VR. At least, one Oculus exec is.

    “The [Oculus] Rift is an open platform. We don’t control what software can run on it,” Oculus founder Palmer Luckey said at a conference today in San Jose, according to Variety. That was in response to a question about the potential for X-rated content, such as pornographic games, 3D porn movies, or interactive VR sex apps.

    It’s a surprising attitude for Facebook to take, given how prudish the company is regarding pornography, nudity, breastfeeding photos, or even post-mastectomy tattoo photos on the Facebook website.

    To be clear: Oculus/Facebook will control apps that are distributed through the Oculus Store, whose terms of service prohibit pornographic content. But if you are a porn developer and have some other distribution channel you’d like to use for your VR-enhanced apps, Oculus won’t be doing anything to stop you, apparently.

    The Oculus Rift is a 3D headset that has been in development for a number of years. Facebook acquired Oculus for about $2 billion in 2014. The gadget won’t be commercially available until the first quarter of 2016, Facebook says, and then only for high-end Windows PCs.

    Variety’s report said that other makers of VR products on the same panel were more squirrelly in their answers. Samsung, Sixense, and Google appear to have dodged questions about virtual sex.

    Unless the apparatus that goes on my cock is self cleaning, I'll pass. That is the one part about a woman that they will never be able to recreate.

    Porn has been a big reason that every new form of home media reaches success, this will be no different.

    They aren't stupid. If it's one thing that'll make your device a hit it's porn.

    Any new technology will become another porn venue at some point. There's no stopping it.
