    You might say, Canada is a grower not a shower.

  • It’s Me

    Lots of sad older guys sitting around alone. They need entertainment. Likely the primary buyers.

      It’s not just the older guys, VR makes porn more interesting to the younger crowd and warps their outlook on what’s normal.

    • It’s Me

      I’m sure young guys love their porn too, but I don’t think they are really looking to spend extra money for it. They use their phone and a sock. And they can always go out and try to get some IRL.

      But the loney older guys? The ones who’ve become bored with life and the wife? They need something extra to spice things up. VR porn is for them.

      If they’re using their phone and a sock, they can afford $20 for google cardboard.

    • It’s Me

      Yes they could. But youngsters are also known to usually be in a rush. Not usually looking for extra bells and whistles, just wham bam thank you ma’am.

    • h2oflyer

      I don’t know about that. I’m an older guy and have never needed porn (black and white or VR) to show me moves or positions that I thought I invented.

      What is this ‘sock’ of which you speak, oh brother?
      The Wise One gave his only sock that the beggar might hop through the snow.
      Alas, he hopped with the wrong foot and succumbed to frostbite; there is a lesson here for us all, is there not…?

      The demographics are just in front of you. NOT the older guys.

    Let me ask you Pat. Are you one of these people since you seem so keen on reporting about Pornhub stories??
    Legit question because beyond this I fail to see ANY relevance of this story to the mandate of this website.

    • Jon Snow

      Lol. I was thinking the same thing. Pat likes them porn stories.

      I am sure people watch porn on their internet enabled fridge, or play Doom on it.

    • You know nothing Jon Snow.

    • Beautiful Blessings

      He can come back from the dead though….jus’ sayin’.

    • Sunny Lee

      I mean, this is a tech website, and VR is tech.
      It’s always interesting to see how the porn industry adapts new technology faster than almost any other. It’s a multi billion dollar industry for a reason. They move the needle.

    • MobileSyrup has always covered mobile tech and the industries intersect with it. Like I state in the above comment, the porn industry is often a driving force behind format wars.

      In the context of virtual reality, it’s more than likely porn will play a significant role in popularizing the technology as well as pushing one specific headset over its competitors.

      Also, it’s an amusing story with interesting Canadian-related stats.

    • Beautiful Blessings

      Very true; just follow the money trail, as they say; money is the driver of progress and porn creates billions of dollars catering to every proclivity…even those of The Blessing.

    • Actionable Conclusion

      Creates billions? How do you figure? Near all these sites, save a few, are free for the viewing so are you referring to advertising? I don’t see it.
      Fact is that its a dying industry and arguably one of the most destructive personally, not only to the participants but also the audience.
      Sorry but ‘format wars’ are no longer decided around porn anymore. It’s not the late 1970’s and the advent of VHS over film

    • Beautiful Blessings

      Ah! The late 70’s; the best of times and the worst. Scrubbers knew their place, did they not?

  • Beautiful Blessings

    Watch NOT the Porns, friends, lest ye fall in to The Abyss of Licentiousness.
    Instead, study the beasts of the field; watch how they cavort and besmirch themselves in the mud, in the act of demonic procreation. Thus it is with Beautiful Blessings.

  • Omar

    Not sure what PH has to do with Canadian mobile content, but okay then.

    • Let me break it down for you. Google’s Daydream View is available in Canada so is Samsung’s Gear VR. Both these devices are powered by mobile phones.

      The end.

    I don’t know why this makes me feel slightly uncomfortable right now. Some mixture of tiredness, a cold, and a large part sparked anxiety about my crush. Emotions are difficult, especially with an existing friendship and their dislike of texting. Gotta get them alone at some point, muster up enough courage to say how I feel, and then hopefully not ruin a friendship. ‘~’

    Also the comment font makes porn read as pom to me. Pom poms woOoOoAAAaaaHHHH.

    • Beautiful Blessings

      Verily…?
