This is why many people who use VR porn also add sex toys to their experience. The popular male vibrating stroker from Lovense, for instance, is designed to sync with the videos it’s used with. Another sex toy that’s specifically designed for VR porn is the Fleshlight Launch, which can be controlled remotely by its wearer.
