Video games inspire a lot of different things, and one of the most popular is porn. We all know how much cosplay has blown up over the past couple of decades, but, in addition to people dressing up in costumes of their favorite video games characters and watching anime, there are a lot of sexual fantasies that comes from this, too.

That got us thinking: Is there a reason why we love porn that’s inspired by video games? While the answer might be a complicated one, we searched far and wide on the Internet to help us find some reason why this might be true. Remember, as reported by PornHub in late 2018, Fortnite was one of the most-searched terms on porn sites, proving that there’s a definite link between some of the fantasies we have in the bedroom and some of the video games we play.

Knowing that, there must be a reason why video games and porn are so intertwined. We offer up some questions and suggestions as to why that is.

Video games give us a sense of sexual novelty

It might not feel like it, but humans desire sexual novelty, which means we love finding new ways to keep our hornball selves at peak level. That could mean watching certain types of porn, trying different things in the bedroom, simply getting turned on by something small that a person does like licking their lips or, in this case, watching animate porn.

Since video games aren’t two humans being sexual, but made up and animated characters, we get a lot of things that are a little more extreme, with dirty talk and sex ultra wild. Anyone who has watched hentai or anime before knows this.

In addition to all of that, characters in video games are often overly sexual, built with muscles and perfect dimensions that resemble a model more than just a fictional character.

Video games offer a distraction from real life

Another interesting reason why porn inspired by video games might be so popular is because it allows people to escape from reality, which can give them something to escape from and relax. This escape from reality is, according to an article written by LehMiller, one of the most common reasons why people report having sexual fantasies, and, when it comes to video games, it makes sense that the same feeling might occur.

Since fantasies of any type, not just sexual in nature, are dreams, hopes or desires, porn inspired by video games can help give people a sense of calmness and happiness. Like all porn does, our minds go to a different place, as we’re able to watch things that we might otherwise not be able to do in our own lives — like threesomes or wild sex positions.

For that reason, video games are a popular genre when it comes to sexual fantasies, and a big reason why is the escape from reality factor.

Since video games are a hobby, gamers fantasize about their favorite characters

When you think about some of your hobbies, you probably find yourself focusing on them more in your everyday routine. For instance, if you’re an avid runner, you might search for the best gear to use, and, in a sexual sense, be attracted to girls who share the same hobby and are fit. The same goes for those who play video games often.

As we mentioned above, since many video games portray characters as hypersexual with perfect bodies, it’s common for gamers to sort of develop a crush on that illusion. And, unlike human beings, these characters are desired when it comes to having sex.

Just as a person who’s interested in role playing, video games offer a character for people to enjoy having sex, thus, it’s a popular reason why this type of porn is often searched for.
