BaDoinkVR is a virtual reality porn production company founded in 2006.[1][2][3] It is the AVN Awards 2018 VR Site of the Year award winner. The company is part of CM Productions (TeamCMP), and sister site to BaDoink VIP, VRCosplayX, 18VR, RealVR and BabeVR.[4] BaDoinkVR is headquartered in Rochester, New York with satellite offices in Barcelona, Spain and Silicon Valley.[5][6] The company was the first to drive mass consumer trial of VR adult videos by seeding the market with 20,000 free virtual reality cardboard goggles.[7]

History[edit]

Founded in 2006, TeamCMP initially launched BaDoink as a premier online adult entertainment site with a proprietary technology platform enabling users to consume content on any device as well as wirelessly stream exclusive content from any device to any TV.[8] In 2015, the company expanded its platform and content production to focus on virtual reality with the launch of BaDoinkVR.[9][10]

The web site features 360 and 180-degree immersive videos, motion tracking and binaural audio. Videos on BaDoinkVR.com can be viewed with Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, Playstation VR, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard with an iOS or Android smartphone using BaDoink’s VR Player, a virtual reality app that is compatible with the devices listed.[11]

As of early 2016, BaDoinkVR is consistently listed as one of the top three leading companies in virtual reality porn.[12]

Teledildonics and haptic technology[edit]

In February 2016, BaDoinkVR announced a partnership with Amsterdam based Kiiroo, a manufacturer of teledildonics and haptic technology that allows partners to simulate sexual relations over a distance.[13][14][15] The two companies will also be producing virtual reality videos focused on sex education.[16]

Malware claims[edit]

In May 2015, BaDoink was notified that the brand and logo, disguised as the BaDoink Ultra App, were being used to spread the Reveton/IcePol ransomware. They identified the site that was distributing the ransomware, and proceeded to remedy the situation, alerting the site's hosting company, and submitting a DMCA takedown request. The company was also in contact with the FBI Cyber Division and sent a cease and desist to the owners of the domain names as well.[17]
