Hi friends, welcome to FindVRporn.com…the original, most singular, congenial, anti-Zeitgeist, VR porn review website on the Internets: the site where VR porn concepts first get formulated before spreading.

FindVRporn.com maintains that there are three main elements to consider with any virtual porn release:

  1. The performer
  2. The scaling/sense of spatial correctness
  3. The positioning of camera/bodies.

Today we’ll consider BaDoinkVR’s December 21, 2017, 40 minute release, Hooky Nooky.

I chose to review this particular release, because the female lead, Violet Starr, felicitously illustrates the aforementioned first element’s importance. That’s to say, the right woman can take a VR porn movie far.

And, what does that mean? What qualities make for the right woman in a virtual porn movie?

We’ll discuss that below. This is another post for the ongoing FindVRporn.com VR Porn Standards Project. This post is a necessary footnote for the FindVRporn.com Performer’s Checklist. Yes, it’s a lengthy footnote, man!

I also wish to suggest that porn actress is a superior term to porn star. I’m wondering, these days, if the great many subpar and unimaginative porn performances may be somewhat attributed to this star/selfie ethos: rather than emphasizing the artistry of fucking on film. Because, when done properly, it’s just as much art as Picasso.

Well, maybe not Picasso. But, Matisse certainly!

Still not funny

The following review uses concepts comprehensively explained in these special features:

All right, so let’s discuss VR porn authenticity using Violet as our reference…


All right, first watch this:

Okay, so Violet Starr, as mentioned, provides a fine illustration of what I want from a woman’s VR porn performance. I know my desires are shared by many.

What’s Internet consensus on this issue?

On forums and message boards, you will inevitably encounter these demands: More close-ups…more eye contact…a greater sense of intimacy.

I agree with those demands.

But, what’s really being said there? What does the female performer do specifically to project this sense of intimacy?

This has a simple answer.

Viewers are demanding authenticity.

And, I’d argue that an authentic performance addresses all the criticisms we frequently see: the need for correct scale; correct technical execution (color, lighting, sound, etc.); insistence on close-ups and eye contact…

I’m not explaining this well, but I never said I was Ernie Hemmingway, folks.

What I’m trying to say is that when viewers complain about flaws with scale, technicalities, a lack of close-ups/intimacy, etc. … I believe what’s really happening is…the separate pieces that constitute the single metric of authenticity are being discussed individually.

Am I making too much out of this?

Maybe…but, I do think there’s something to this that could be useful to the studio and/or actress.

Because, if I had a studio, what would be the single thing I’d tell the actress?

I’d just say: Make it feel real.

Whether you’re doing a Girlfriend Experience (where reality is the fetish) or if it’s Mistress T pretending to be some insane stepmom or deranged nurse: embody that ontology authentically.

Mistress T, you’re kind of crazy, but what you really are is a great actress…

Perhaps what I find most VR porn powerful is a convincing performance where the contextual set-up is reduced to pure sexual need/lust. In other words, the horny is not dependent upon transgressive relationships and such. That’s to say, you’ll notice an awful lot of porn unimaginatively draws its charge based upon doinking between people who shouldn’t be doinking…

Much more could be said about that. Another time.

So, it should be unsurprising that virtual porn…a medium which by its very nature celebrates realism (VR does stand for virtual reality)…that authenticity would shine like a million suns.

Hey, I never said I was Vlad Nabolkov!

So, what the fuck am I saying, man?!

Simply put: in VR porn the woman’s authenticity is everything.

All things being equal: That single factor can make the difference between a mediocre release and FindVRporn.com’s VR Porn Movie Of The Year. That’s what did it last year with Bella Rose. Sure, Bella’s beautiful. But, pornography’s filled with beautiful women. It was Bella’s authenticity that secured the victory.

Here’s Bella Rose in a BaDoinkVR release that is tied for my fave VR porn movie of 2016

In this man’s opinion, sure. But, I think many agree.

And, I’m spending some time on this reference post because, as mentioned, I think it will be useful to our Horny Overlords.

Now, I believe I’ve competently argued about authenticity’s importance. And, I also think we all understand what it means.

But, can we get even more specific?

Well, this is where Violet’s latest performance is relevant.

Watch it. Watch how she engages the viewer during the cowgirl hoverfacing. Here’s some pictures of that:

There’s definitely a je ne sais quo of a masterful squatting cowgirl hoverface! And, I guarantee you in the history of the universe that’s the very first time that sentence has ever been typed out!

And, I think there’s dozens of barely tangible factors which combine to create VR porn’s authenticity Gestalt. You know, the camera must be close to the woman’s face. There’s the eye contact: but, there’s also that minuscule eye magic that you can’t explain, but when it’s there, everyone sees it. There’s the realistic moaning/sounds: and, we’ve read complaints about fake moaning…people don’t want that. Ain’t nobody ever said, “It was a good porn movie, but the moaning just wan’t quite fake enough.” There’s the physical execution of sexual sequences and whether or not a horny-desperation is conveyed. Violet did a particularly fantastic job with that aspect. And, as I keep suggesting, there’s the stuff you can’t put into words.

Come to think of it… Violet was also damn awesome in her September 2016 Real Teens release

And, I consider Violet to be a talented pornographic actress. And, that’s what I’d call her: a pornographic actress, which, despite society’s public indignation, is a very legitimate and needed occupation.

I recall Ms. Starr playing the cheerleader in a Real Teens release: and, she has a special knack for transmitting an authentic feminine joy.

No, it ain’t making too much out of this. It’s real, man. It’s just that we’re not supposed to discuss it with this level of analytical depth. Hell, in America we ain’t supposed to discuss this stuff period, man!

So, if an actress is going to shoot a VR porn…and, if she’s aiming to deliver a horny, authentic performance…honestly, I’d say just go ahead and watch Violet in this one. It’s not the only example. But, it is one of the better ones.

Take Me To Violet Starr, NOW!
