There are VR headsets for almost every niche. There are headsets that specialize in high resolutions, wide field of view, and even eye-tracking. But what’s the best headset for adult VR gaming? I think it’s the Valve Index, but here’s a table that compares the specs of every major headset. Read on for a more in-depth look at the pros and cons of each one.

Oculus Rift S
The first thing to consider when looking for a VR porn game headset is the platform. It’s no secret that the Facebook-owned Oculus isn’t very accepting of controversial content. Their curated storefront is anathema to indy developers and the company’s reputation for privacy isn’t good at all. Even if you could sideload VR porn games onto the Oculus Rift, would you really want Mark Zuckerberg knowing your hentai preferences?
The Windows MR headsets are a bit more flexible in this regard but their tracking is sub-par. Also, their low rate of adoption means that smaller developers might not have the necessary incentive to make their games compatible. The HP Reverb has an amazing resolution though. So, for some, it might be worth the trade-off especially for those who enjoy VR porn movies more than games.
HTC Vive Cosmos
The HTC Vive and the Vive Cosmos both utilize the porn-friendly Steam store as their native distribution platform. Both headsets have excellent room-scale tracking and can be powered by a beefy PC that’s capable of running even the most demanding adult VR games (I’m looking at you Virt-A-Mate). The Vive Cosmos, in particular, has a very respectable resolution and an LCD screen which makes it a solid option for VR porn gaming.
In my opinion, the best headset for adult VR gaming is the Valve Index. It’s high FOV, excellent resolution, great tracking and superb audio make it the best all-around headset for VR porn games. It’s not cheap, but the benefits are worth the cost for those who want the sexiest experience available.
