3. Spotlight: Women in VR - Dinorah Hernandez
By Alice Bonasio
Dinorah Hernandez is a Director and leading voice in VR videography, having spoken at major tech and industry conferences such as SXSW and Web Summit for the past several years as immersive technology has developed. She works with BaDoinkVR, a company based in Barcelona, Spain to produce adult content aimed at a female audience
Her innovative production, which I covered a couple of years ago, is called Virtual Sexology. It blended entertainment, sex education, and therapy to enable women to enhance their sexual pleasure and performance, both solo and with their partners.
The experience was designed “by women and for women,” with input from experts in the field such as AASECT certified sex therapist Dr. Holly Richmond, Ph.D., who helped to develop the content and exercises featured. The free-to-download experience even offered a free sex toy to women who tried it, and Hernandez also pioneered teledildonics integration with some of the content.
“We’re striving to appeal to a large demographic of women that have been widely ignored by the adult industry, as we recognized that women tend to have different a mindset compared to men when it comes to adult VR,” she explained.
