People (likely men) who are down with porn and not embarrassed about watching it through a hunk of cardboard on their heads are about to have a very good day.

A new adult-entertainment site launched today that is specifically geared toward virtual-reality gear like Google Cardboard, which means that the iPhone can now become part of an even less subtle way than usual of looking at pictures of naked people.

BaDoink (link is as NSFW as it gets) is also compatible with dedicated headsets like the Oculus Rift and Samsung VR, but the site’s parent company is more interested in letting everyone have a go.

“Until now, the promise of virtual reality has been a little empty. The devices needed to appreciate VR are largely unaffordable,” said CM Productions’ uncannily named CEO Todd Glider in a press release. “VR is the future, so we’re doing what we can to bring VR to the masses. Our mission is to stimulate the sector.”

I see what you did there, Glider.

Part of the company’s initiative includes giving away Cardboard-style mounts to save users the trouble of building or buying your own. And they even recommend a bunch of VR apps on that page that aren’t just packed full of boobs and wieners.

It’s no surprise that the VR porn market is growing. Virtual reality is all about transporting you into other places and letting you experience fantastical new things. And the thing about whatever bizarre parallel universe porn takes place in is that its events are often unrealistic, if not impossible under the system of societal norms and physics that govern our own.

We don’t know yet if the adult industry’s interest in VR will drive public engagement with the tech, but the accessibility that budget-friendly options like Cardboard offer are certainly going to help the platform expand.
