It’s almost impossible to get a straight dude who plays video games horny these days. Walk by him in a short skirt that’s practically begging to be creepshotted and he’ll politely avert his gaze. Use your girl voice to talk to him on Xbox Live and he’ll compliment you on your impressive gameplay skills and immediately want to engage you in a conversation about the latest issue of Bust magazine. Luckily, developers of Wicked Paradise, an adult virtual reality game for the Oculus Rift headset, are working to solve this important problem.

In an interview with Road to VR, Wicked Paradise CEO Jeroen Van den Bosch said that he and his team are in the preproduction and research phase of an erotic virtual reality adventure game that can be played using the Oculus Rift headset. It will “begin as a male heterosexual fantasy game,” he said, but will hopefully expand into satisfying other genders and orientations once the initial product is released.

The major question Mr. Van den Bosch said he’s tackling is how exactly to turn a heterosexual video game nerd on. “‘Can a virtual woman inside a virtual world actually make you genuinely horny?'” he said many men have asked him. “Well, I’m happy to let you know that the answer to that question is ‘yes!'”

Finally, the era of frigid, sex-hating gamer guys may finally be coming to an end.
