Ela Darling was one of the first to experiment with virtual reality and erotism. Her theory was that virtual reality was the perfect medium for immersive erotism. No need to say that Ela turned out to be absolutely right. Now that VR porn is going mainstream, many look at Ela Darling as the first to have used the technology successfully. Born in small town San José, California Ela was always a geeky bookworm by nature. Her first passion was literature since it let her escape reality before virtual reality was invented. She moved to Austin, Texas to complete a bachelor degree in Psychology - Criminology and then a Master of Library from the University of Illinois. She was ready for a career as a librarian when she made the fortunate jump in adult erotism. With those never-ending legs, bright blue eyes, and the sexiest curiosity and wit, Ela Darling was an instant triumph. But Ela Darling is also an entrepreneur. In 2014, she started the publishing site vrtube.xxx. In 2016, she was invited to Oestrich-Winkel, Germany for a TEDx event “Dare to Start Over” where is talked about making the best mistakes of her life. She was also profiled in Rolling Stone Magazine and The Guardian. In 2018, Ela won the 2018 XBIZ Award for “Crossover Star of the Year”.
