Kim Kardashian’s sex tape, yes the one that made her famous, has been transformed into a VR experience.
The Kim Kardashian sex tape featured the reality superstar having sex with rapper Ray J, but that was back in 2007 before she was a superstar. Kim sued for the leakage but later on decided to drop the lawsuit and settle for millions of dollars. She then rose to fame and is now a celebrated entrepreneur and reality star. An adult video studio known as Vivid Entertainment has been working on making a virtual reality version of the tape for people to experience it in a whole new way.
Vivid Entertainment which acquired the sex tape aims to capitalize on Kim K’s current popularity by creating a VR experience using the sex tape. Judging by the fact that the sex tape became very popular, the VR experience is also expected to attract a lot of viewers. The studio did a remake of the original tape to make it a more immersive VR experience. This means that it will contain scenes from the original film as well as scenes which feature a Kim Kardashian lookalike who will be pleasuring herself.
“It will enable fans to feel an unprecedented intimate connection with one of the most celebrated pop culture figures of the era,” said Vivid Entertainment.
It currently not clear whether Kim K is on board with the idea of the tape doing rounds on the internet again. However, she is now used to the spotlight and nudity is not much of an issue nowadays. Nevertheless, it is a bold move for the studio, and a clever one for that matter since people never seem to get enough of Kim K.
The adult industry is one of the industries that stand to benefit a lot from the adoption of VR technology. VR porn has been a concept that has been around since the early versions of VR headsets because it allows the viewers to feel more immersed in the content they are watching. It had not been a mainstream thing until this year following the growing support for the technology during this year’s E3 events. Numerous virtual reality headsets from various companies have since then been launched, and the pricing is well within the financial reach of many people.
Now that virtual reality has become more accepted as a form of entertainment, content developers have been busy at work trying to come up with new and immersive content. Analysts predicted in the early stages that VR would be a big thing in various sectors including gaming and the adult industry. Numerous websites featuring adult content have been creating virtual reality content to improve on their offering.
Kim Kardashian’s sex tape will be available in VR format on the VividVirtual website which also contains other adult content in virtual reality form. The video can be viewed using a variety of VR headsets including the Samsung Gear VR and the Oculus among others.
A lot has changed since 2007 when the Kim K sex tape first emerged into the limelight. For example, Kim is now married to Kanye West and they already have children. There is thus a degree of sensitivity attached to the resurgence of the video. However, Mr. West does not really seem to be bothered by Kim’s past but it would be weird if their children were to come across the content as they grow up.
On the other hand, if the studio obtained permission and Kim is okay with the idea, then it is probably not going to be a problem for the reality superstar. It is currently not clear what Kim Kardashian thinks about the VR remake of the sex tape.
