Any good for adult movies? Asking for a friend.


Yes superb for adult films but on the down side once you remove the headset you may find that granny has been standing there watching you yank your plank for the last 20 minutes.
Amazing abit of kit!
Had mine from day one of release.

Mains uses for this:
Watching films and especially 3D movies as these are more effective and immersive than 3D tv or cinema.
You have your own person cinema environment in a headset that you take away with you or use at home.

I used it a lot at night to watch films and Netflix etc in bed as the wife hates the TV being on due to it lighting the room up.
This headset did the trick very comfortable!

Good for Social apps to where you can chat to other users in various different apps and most free!

Can do some gaming on it to, don’t expect top VR games but there are some good gems on there that still look good and are fun to play.

I traded mine in to get the new Oculus Quest which is aimed a gaming than media consumption but i actually miss my Go as the Quest a little heavier and also has more solid straps where the Go and softer elastic straps when leaning your head back or laying down!

If I had £150 spare I’d pick one up again!

I'm now put off playing porn on mine. Had a great scene going on as I sat on my bed furiously **** *******. When it finished and I took the headset off I found that my Mum had left a hot fresh cup of tea on my bedside cabinet.

May I ask you a few questions, Is there any reason to go for the 64gb version. how are movies put on it, through a network or usb drive, you say 3d is good, again how do you view them, missing my 3d tv, as the family cant stand the goggles. Cheers

1) I went for the 64GB model due to cost but I never filled it up. However this was due to me having some other things that’s helped this with media.
2)I have a media server at home so i streamed all my content from that to the headset.
But I also had a portable wireless router that also acted as a wireless media server and battery pack for stays way from home good for accessing my films without internet and also charge my headset up to as the batter last around 2/3hrs In the headset. I would turn it on connect my headset to it via the WiFi it gave off and plug in a USB had or Pen or a SD card that I had loaded films and tv shows on to it.
BUT you can also added media locally to the device via USB and a computer it opens up as a connected device and you see the nest of folder and one called media where you copy the content across.

Your biggest hurdle is getting access to the digital versions of media there are lots of ways to do so. Some legit and more then often non legit illegal ways.
You’ll have to do some googling for that if you don’t know how already.

Hope the above helps.

Also if like me you’ll also find it fun to demo to people who’ve never had experience with VR to see the look of amazement on their face!

I have the 32gig model and have no issues with space, if you have a ton of stuff on dvd or blu ray there are a ton of free programes you can use to rip them into digital format so then you can just drag what you want onto the Go's internal memory by connecting it to your PC via the usb port, plus you can have streaming services like Netflix...........As for watching you own media there are apps that you install on the Go that allow you to watch movies, and all media looks great in it, it is virtually like having your own cinema.....try watching a Columbo in your own Cinema via it amazing, and oreso for this price, and i paid the full £200.

You can connect it to use it like a monitor but i'm not sure it can actually play any games designed for a rift/vive.
It is a good simple standalone device that I use for watching films. There are apps for Netflix, YouTube and now Amazon Prime that just work. It can also mirror a PC screen using an app called Virtual Desktop Streamer, via WiFi, however DRM heavy content such as NOW TV won't work. It is a shame that there isn't a dedicated NOW TV app, perhaps there are issues with co-operation between Facebook and Sky TV.
Can you watch the rollercoaster things on this & play games etc, someone said you need a control pad to play games? We’ve bought a few cheap ones and returned all because of blurred vision etc so this is the next step.
Forgot to mention that there is also an inbuilt internet browser if you don't need to mirror your PC monitor.

I would get the quest if you can stretch that far. It does what this does and more. But costs more too.

If the wife wasn't there in the bedroom and you had a TV over 40" in size, which would you pick to watch a film with? Oculus Go or the TV?

I tried looking for somewhere to test these out, but retailers don't seem to put these on demo the way they do with tablets, phones, tvs, etc, which is a shame.
I used it for few hours and it started hurting eyes ....anyway to reduce the brightness

Any good for adult movies? Asking for a friend.


I suspect many buy it for that reason alone.

It is a great piece of kit. I enjoy putting on a film to watch late at night so I do not disturb anyone. You effectively watch a cinema screen in your bedroom.

Buy this and some headphones to go with it.

If you have a NAS drive, just go for the 32GB.
It sucks, you need tracking.
I'd recommend saving up for a Quest, unless all you want to do is watch VR porn.

Not tried, but friend told me it is very good.

On a serious note this is one great device. Everyone who tried was pleasantly surprised. Great selection of apps and games. Good pricing for games. Had pc Vr setup which has been hardly use due to all the cables and need to connect PC. Oculus go gets used on daily basis. Also have insta360 so nice to see some family Vr videos on it.

So a Go it is then.
Good price & tempting but I reckon these aren't selling well with Quest now out and this not having 6dof or touch controllers it's a pretty limited device. Can see 129.99 and then 99.99 coming not that far off ie black friday and beyond.
I got one of these on launch and if you've only ever tried VR using cardboard these are well worth picking up for £150. The only downside is you'll soon realise its limitations and wish you bought a Quest.
Can I play beatSaber with this?

It depends what you want.

1. Porn, this is perfect,
2. Netflix, this is perfect..
3. It struggles with Blu-Ray rips but I just download 1080p rips that are 10GB each (of the movies that I own on blu-ray) and you cannot tell the difference at all.

I have Pigasus player that I bought for £3 and have it set to void mode and lie back and watch my movies on this looking up at would be the ceiling in bed at 1am on a 100ft TV screen with no disturbing anyone whatsoever.

It is quite literally like sitting in the cinema and getting to see all the old 80s classics you missed the first time around finally on the big screen.

First movie I warched on the above was Die Hard with a Vengeage and it does give you goosebumps. It is amazing.
I got.one last year, it's a great, relatively cheap experience, and a good entry level into VR.

I mainly use it to watch (non porn) movies on Netflix and now Amazon Prime, and also YouTube but I always give myself a break after about 45 mins - an hour as it can strain / tire the eyes a little. I actually have a proper intermission and have a choc ice and a Big Frank


But to have the feeling of a good big screen and the stereo sound which works excellently really can draw you in to having a cinematic experience.

I am not a games player, bit even I have enjoyed quite a few gaming sessions on this as it's so different to console games.

Also during Big events, such as last year's World Cup, you get some fantastic VR options from the like of the BBC.

I don't regularly use it now, but I dig it out every couple of weeks and have a good time with it when I do.

Gear VR/Oculus Go is cheap and perfect portable personal cinema.

Im currently using a gear VR coupled with a Samsung S7, does anyone know how this would compare?

Would it be worth the upgrade?
Really not a deal, ifgrab a cheap Gear VR if you allready got one of latest Galaxy S phone for good portable 3d cinema viewer. Quest is in every way better than Go, save some money and grab Quest 64gb for 399gbp

Cheapest it's ever been. Not everyone has a Galaxy phone. Quest is nearly three times the price.
