The [Oculus] Rift is an open platform. We don’t control what software can run on it,” says company founder Palmer Luckey. Facebook paid $2 billion to acquire the company in 2014.

Oculus' 3-D headsets are scheduled to hit the consumer market early next year. They've been predicted to change the experience of education, travel, medicine, and oh yeah, porn.

Check the growth of beta/VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray and you will see the direct correlation to the consumer market. It was also the adult entertainment industry that pioneered online credit card transactions, tracking devices and streaming video. From ecommerce, to software to gadgets much of the tech success would not happen without the market and demand for porn.

Consumers want more powerful devices in terms of memory, disk space, processor speed and upgrades. They need more bandwidth, reliable hosting and of course security --  yeah we're looking at you Ashley-Madison.

Adult entertainment is big business and the virtual reality pioneers recognize their impact. So if you're planning to buy a device for personal or family act like you know.
