  • What are the most exciting VR projects in porn right now?
  • How has the #metoo movement affected the adult film industry? Is there a way technology could bring more gender equality?
  • What is it about VR that has made it catch on so quickly in the industry? What new problems could you see it posing for adult film actors?
  • Are there many other women leading VR or other leading tech companies in porn?

Ask all this and more to CAM4VR’s Ela Darling.
