CNBC and Re/Code on BaDoink’s Free VR Goggles

CNBC and its partner, technology news site Re/code, can definitely recognize a savvy marketing move when they see one.

As the leading company in virtual reality porn, BaDoink took a step towards introducing many potential customers to their exclusive content by offering free VR headsets to the public.

The headsets are modeled on Google Cardboard, and would otherwise retail for roughly $20. The hope was that offering the case to mount a smartphone would encourage customers to download BaDoinkVR’s exclusive content.

The strategy was a raging success. Less than 24 hours after BaDoink announced they’d be giving away 10,000 VR goggles for free, a flurry of sex tech enthusiasts had claimed all of them, and a new order for an extra 20,000 goggles was already in progress.

“For a lot of people, this is the first they’ve heard of Google Cardboard because it’s all so new,” BaDoink’s CEO Todd Glider told Re/code.

The foldout cardboard is a cheap and simple solution to create a VR headset by simply providing a cardboard case to mount your smartphone. With just lenses, a magnet and a hook-and-loop fastener, BaDoink’s Free VR Goggles are an incredibly quick solution for those wanting to explore VR porn for pretty much nothing.

“There’s maybe three other sites out there offering this as an adult VR [porn] site on its own,” Glider added. “So we thought this is a great way to raise awareness and get a lot of people to see the BaDoink brand.”

New 180 and 360 degrees scenes, shot at an excellent 60 fps, and with some of the world’s hottest porn stars, are being uploaded to BaDoinkVR.com every week.
