Japan’s First VR Porn Festival Was So Popular It Had to Be Shut Down

By

If “Adult VR Fest 01” was any indication of what’s to come for virtual reality, then we’d say the future looks pretty bright. The festival, held in Tokyo earlier this spring, was devoted (as you might guess) to all things VR porn, like this box engineered to feel exactly like you’re touching a boob.

It looked like fun, too, if your idea of fun is getting a hand-job simulation from a robot while donning a VR headset in a room full of onlookers. Or, at least, it looked like fun until the whole event had to be shut down due to overcrowding. According to a VR blog, VR Talk, only about 20 people from the long line of people waiting to get in were allowed inside. “The event didn’t start until two p.m, so I went there in high spirits an hour before then, but the city was already overflowing with people. There were so many that it was almost impossible to keep the situation under control,” a reporter at the event noted on the blog. After that, Hatenablog reports the entire event had to be shuttered, but organizers have promised bigger accommodations for next year.
