Ela Darling is Spearheading VR Porn

In our last segment, The Future of Virtual Reality Porn, we discussed the status of virtual reality for adult entertainment productions. The consensus was that one day virtual reality had the power to potentially shape the future of pornography. It appears that in just a year, that future has become a virtual reality.

With VR becoming common place in the mainstream, studios appear to be scrambling to adopt the new technology as quickly as possible. The shift toward virtual reality, however, may not be exclusive to studio productions. On the contrary, virtual reality in porn may gain ground quickest in the arena of webcams, where things are far more personal. This move makes sense, because virtual reality highlights the realism of an experience, and the most realistic experience is one that’s living in real time.

Ela Darling’s Virtual Reality Camshows

For those who don’t know her, Ela Darling is a self-described “ladies’ porn star.” According to FreeOnes, a website that categorizes and ranks various pornographic performers, Darling’s been in the business for more than a few years but hasn’t yet become a common or rather widespread name among enthusiasts. Recently, however, she’s begun to turn heads by becoming the queen of virtual reality porn.

Her start in this market certainly wasn’t made alone.  Courtesy of a new service offered by CAM4, Ela Darling has changed the tone to focus on one-to-one sessions. In fact, by making it all about a singular exclusive viewing with one’s favorite performer, Darling and CAM4 hope to market virtual reality as the best possible porn experience,



You may have already heard of VR Porn or seen other adult VR sites online, but nothing comes close to the feeling of being in the private bedroom of your favourite cam girl. Get ready for live VR!

What’s most interesting about this concept, is that it’s skipping a major evolutionary step in virtual reality. Instead of going through the motions of static, pre-recorded sessions, Darling and CAM4 could be innovating straight to the real-time experience.

If what Ela Darling is doing with CAM4VR sticks, the standard means of production may be threatened by a far more exclusive and tailored experience. Almost as if the user is engaging in an anonymous escorting experience, from the comfort of their own home. Despite the potential legal ramifications that could come with such a thing, the innovation is certainly on the cutting edge. With teledildonics, the possibilities are virtually endless.

Move over theoretical sexbot, we’ve got the makings of something even better. Imagine coming home from a long day, and logging in to find your favorite performer ready to go for a hot session? What an interesting thing to see coming out of Porn Valley.

Pornographic Bikini Noodle Branding?

Pornography is one of those subjects that will perpetually be the cause of dividing opinions. Such differences know no borders. According to Alex Swerdloff, of Vice, the Indonesian Consumers Foundation is pushing to ban the branding of Bikini Noodle’s instant noodles for being, as they’ve decided, too pornographic:

All this hit home this week when the Indonesian Food and Drug Monitoring Agency declared that a noodle snack should be pulled from shelves in the Muslim-majority nation because its packaging depicted an image they considered to be out-and-out pornographic.

Bikini Noodle? Rigorous Definitions of Porn

In the western world, we might think that marketing like this isn’t pornographic at all. After all, bikini clad is far from lewd, even if we are encouraged to squeeze the bag. It’s simply another category of outfit, right? In fact, with brands like Skinny Girl being prevalent in the United States, we might think that Bikini Noodle is designed to be low-calorie alternatives.

Unfortunately for Indonesia, this isn’t the first time that censorship in the noodle industry has reared its head. In fact, according to Swerdloff, an Indonesian politician made the claim that instant noodles and formula cause babies to become homosexual,

Arief R. Wismansyah, the mayor of the Indonesian city of Tangerang (just west of Jakarta), has shocked the world after asserting that instant noodles and formula milk are actually “making babies gay.” He made the unnerving comment during a government-run pregnancy seminar held in Tangerang earlier this week.

Alex Swerdloff c/o Vice

It’s important to realize how fortunate we are, in most of the western world, for having the freedom of expression that we do. We certainly wouldn’t have such a vibrant and diverse industry that is pornography in other countries.

Donald Trump VS Pornography

It was inevitable that this election cycle would involve the pornographic industry and pornography community. After all, porn is a hot topic where opinions can be passionate. This time, however, unlike the Hilary Clinton parody that happened last year, Donald Trump’s involvement comes from outside the industry. According to Josh Guckert of the The Libertarian Republic, Trump is ready to take on pornography:

On Monday, the nonprofit group Enough is Enough announced that Donald Trump had signed its pledge. The oath calls for “preventing the sexual exploitation of children, better enforcing Internet obscenity laws, and recognizing that exposure to Internet porn is deforming the sexual development of younger viewers,” according to PC World.

Josh Guckert c/o The Libertarian Republic

Is Donald Trump Advocating Against Porn?

No one is going to argue against preventing the sexual exploitation of children. If it exists, it absolutely needs to stop, and I don’t think anyone in this industry would fight such regulation. But what exactly does better enforcing obscenity laws entail? Where does obscenity begin, and safe sexual exploration end? What exactly should be censored is entirely up to the imagination of those in power. For members of the industry, and enthusiasts a like, that could stir some fear. As Guckert wrote,

However, other portions of the pledge may frighten onlookers as resembling the attributes of a nanny state. This includes the “serious consideration” of a Presidential Commission to examine the “harmful public impact of Internet pornography on youth, families, and the American culture.

Josh Guckert c/o The Libertarian Republic

Adults who look at legal pornography are not children, and shouldn’t be treated as such. The freedom of sexual expression in the form of pornography, while not universally protected, shouldn’t be censored if all parties are consenting adults.

Donald Trump’s action might not be an all out declaration of war, but Guckert makes an excellent case for worry. According to Guckert, Trump has made some outlandish claims, such as threatening network neutrality and increasing surveillance under the banner of combating terrorism. If pornography is deemed harmful to the nation’s culture, like it has for the UK, will we see the end to porn in the United States?

In an election year where so much is at stake, it seems necessary to be diligent in making it known that our freedoms are important to us. We’re consenting adults, and we want our freedom of expression to remain intact.
