Top VR Company Rejects Porn

"For me, it’s a solid no every time."

Kicking pornography to the non-glamorous shadows where it belongs, one of the nation's leading Virtual Reality companies THE VOID has rejected such explicit content on their immersive hyper-reality experiences," which will open to the public in "VOID Experience Centers" around the world.

Founders of THE VOID made their decision under the advisement of the anti-porn group Fight the New Drug, who had been monitoring the porn industry's relationship with virtual reality tech over the past few years. The leading pornography distributor Pornhub has given away close to 10,000 VR headsets to hook people on "its 360 degree X-rated content," reports Fight the New Drug.

From LifeSiteNews:

THE VOID’s founders have pioneered the development of a form of “immersive entertainment” that uses physical environments, real-time interactive effects and VR headsets to let players experience “living” in movies or games.

Considered the leader in this rapidly developing industry, THE VOID just opened its first “immersive hyper-reality experience” called "Ghostbusters:Dimension" in partnership with Sony at Madame Tussaud’s in New York City. Participants become ghostbusters, chasing after and catching phantoms.

Unfortunately, THE VOID's rejection of porn means they will be fighting an uphill battle as they've been warned the company would not survive without it. Founder Ken Bretschneider plans to prove the naysayers wrong. 

"I’m just here to say that there is so much money to be made without doing porn too,” he told Fight the New Drug. "We’ve got more than enough worlds to create that are based off telling stories and we think that’s what’s going to be engaging for people. Our audience is looking for immersive experiences that include action, adventure, fantasy, horror, science-fiction, and more, and this is what we will deliver."

"I always say that I could have already been a billionaire if I wanted to because I’ve been approached about streaming porn a lot," Jensen, THE VOID’s chief visionary officer, told Fight the New Drug. "If it was about money and not about family or considering lives it would destroy, I could be a billionaire. For me, it’s a solid no every time."
