This new 'sex helmet' design should make it possible to film first-person VR smut comfortably
TECH-SAVVY horn-dogs can now record their bonking sessions with a VR "sex helmet".
The wacky space-age creation is designed to capture steamy action across a 300-degree field of view – to be replayed on virtual reality goggles later.
The VRB Head Rig 2.0 is built by a porn production company called VR Bangers, which specialists in virtual reality smut.

"I don’t want to sound like I am bragging about it, but it feels like we have actually thought about everything this time."
Producers working with the old rig said that male actors struggled to "get a proper erection".
The new helmet may resolve this issue, and is about to be tested in upcoming adult VR films.
We've asked VR Bangers for pricing info on the new helmet and will update this story with any response.
