Oculus Inventor Palmer Luckey has put to rest any fears that may reside about access to adult entertainment on the upcoming consumer version of the Oculus Rift.

Variety has the story about the Facebook-owned technology:

Asked about plans to block any X-rated content or apps during a panel at the first Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Conference in San Jose, Calif., on Monday, Luckey responded: "The rift is an open platform. We don't control what software can run on it," adding: "And that's a big deal."

Luckey's remarks stood out as most of his fellow panelists tried to dodge controversial questions around topics like adult entertainment as well as motion sickness and other side effects of using virtual reality headsets.

So fear not, folks. You'll still be able to get plenty of weird with your future headgear. The Rift doesn't yet have a release date, but Oculus said it will come out in the first quarter of 2016.
