This is a piece of the FindVRporn.com VR Porn Standards Project, which created the first formulated, conceptual foundation for VR porn reviewing and discussion.
These pieces were published separately over several years beginning in 2015. They were first published in this single document on December 17, 2017. Last updated November 2018.
Here’s the FindVRporn POSITIONING checklist:
Convenient List of Positioning Elements FindVRporn wants in every release
1. A Prerequisite for the following to apply is that there is a correct sense of spatial correctness (article). That’s to say, if the scale/feel of things is wrong, position doesn’t matter. 2. A second prerequisite is a proper contrast between the performer’s skin color and the background (as pictured below). To my surprise, this obvious consideration is so often overlooked.
Not to be too repetitive, but it does kind of amaze me how this is almost always ignored. Sometimes I get the impression that their objective is to purposefully create as little contrast as possible.3. Hit a fella with an Instant Sweet Spot Open (article): it’s how it’s done, son. Instant Sweet Spot Open—yet another term coined here like virtually all the terminology on this page—means that as soon as the movie begins, there’s a beautiful woman in your face. In other words, NOT a distant, pixelated figure 15 feet away on the room’s other side. Please, don’t do that. 4. Face close-up time (pop-up picture) in sweet spot zone (article), minimum 3 minutes. 5. Sweet spot (article) clothed teasing, minimum 2 minutes. 6. Bent-over blowjob (pop-up picture), minimum 2 minutes.
7. Missionary push-forward (article), minimum 5 minutes.8. Truncated missionary (pop-up picture)…article: minimum 3 minutes. If you want major bonus points: fade cuts between truncated and push forward! 9. Upright from behind head/hair pull, minimum 3 minutes. Personally, this position is a MUST. There is not much in VR porn that is hornier than a well-shot, UPRIGHT/STANDING FROM BEHIND HEAD/HAIR PULL!! (as pictured by Zoey Monroe for WankzVR below).
The hair-pulling stuff isn’t absolutely necessary. What’s really important is the upright positioning. But, the hair-pulling stuff, in my view, intensifies the eroticism of this.10. Doggy Pull Down (pop-up picture), minimum 2 minutes.
By pulling the woman’s doggy lower in the frame (demonstrated by Dahlia below) a greater immediacy (i.e. horny) is rendered.11. Squatting Cowgirl Hoverface (article) – minimum 2 minutes.
Squatting cowgirl hoverface—one of a number of expressions coined here at FindVRporn that’s now frequently used around the VR porn Internet—is pretty much exactly what it sounds like…
The woman squats her cowgirl bounce…leaning in at the man—with her face hovering above his face.
This is quite horny! And, seen much more often these days.12. Ten finger reverse cowgirl, minimum 1 minute, as seen in Deadpool (Jessa Rhodes pictured below).
The idea here is that the reverse cowgirl—at the very least—is upright; but, better yet, leaning towards the man’s face.13. Truncated cowgirl as seen in VRP’s Student Affair: at least a minute. Every release already has cowgirl, so yea…I want to see the camera zoom into truncated cowgirl every release also. 14. Front-facing Standup: For whatever reason, this FF Standup is rarely seen in virtual porn movies. Why not? I don’t fucking know, man, because it’s off-the-charts HORNY! Just peep at the screenshot below from CzechVR’s 182nd release starring Darcia Lee. 15. Change depths with truncated footage: let’s see this, please. Bonus: 1. Although controversial, if it were up to me, I’d say break 1st person POV all the time with quick black fadecuts that then refocus very close to the woman’s face etc. and then fade back to POV…this is something not seen much, though CzechVR is closest… Switch a few times into immediate 3rd person POV. Truth time: I’d like to see a lot of POV switches. 2. Work in moving camera. 3. As a very general rule, imo, it’s best to have the woman pulled down far in the frame: even to the extent where all that’s seen of the man is his thrusting dipstick. 4. Although, not strictly a positioning aspect, if the background provides maximum contrast with the woman, everything—including positioning—looks better… 5. Body Scans: Who’s going to do this first… and, why does everyone seem so scared to try? Just use a moving camera to scan around the woman at a distance of about 20 inches. 6. Okay, thank me later when you’re taking big checks to the bank. A JOI VR with nothing but a close-up on the woman’s face. I guess nobody wants to get rich. If I had the equipment/means, I’d start this type of studio myself.
All right, friends, that’s the end of the FindVRporn.com Positioning Checklist. This checklist should save a lot of typing as it can easily be linked.
I hope this article is useful to the studios. I hope this article is useful to you.
If I’m simply being honest—while risking sounding arrogant—I will say that a VR porn studio could do a fuck of a lot worse than just following the checklist point by point.
