Wicked Paradise: A VR Game That Puts You in a Strip Club



It is axiomatic that whenever a new technology is invented, one of the first adapters will be the porn industry. Sure, they got it wrong when they picked HD-DVD over Blu-ray, but generally speaking, if you can watch anything on it, somebody is quickly figuring out how to put sex on it.

It didn’t take long for the Oculus Rift. The VR/motion capture headset that immerses you in the game may soon give a whole new meaning to “head” set with Wicked Paradise, a game described as the “world’s first erotic virtual reality experience.”

Actually, depending how you define virtual reality, it wouldn’t remotely be the first. There have been porn DVDs that simulate sex POVs and have interactive controls, not to mention Japanese video games with penis-powered controllers and interactive sex with anime girls in pirate hats. It does feature mo-cap stripper models, though.

My big question is this – how bad will the hacks for this game be? You know it’s only a matter of time before somebody tries to get into the programming and turn the strippers into Equestria Girls, or Misa Hayase, or Smurfette.
