Virtual Reality Is Sexist

The aim of this study was to assess what drives gender-based differences in the experience of cybersickness within virtual environments… As there are many individual factors that could contribute to gender differences, understanding the biggest drivers could help point to solutions… Taken together, the results suggest that gender differences in cybersickness may be largely contingent on whether or not the VR display can be fit to the IPD of the user; with a substantially greater proportion of females unable to achieve a good fit. VR displays may need to be redesigned to have a wider IPD adjustable range in order to reduce cybersickness rates, especially among females.
