What is a Virtual World?

A virtual world is a digital environment that can be accessed from an electronic device. In most cases, users create an avatar that moves around the world as it is explored. Individuals can hang out, play games, or engage in a number of experiences in a virtual setting. 

This post will cover 5 popular virtual reality worlds as well as 5 popular online virtual worlds:

Top Virtual Reality World for Adults

Since virtual reality has come on to the scene, many have fallen in love with the social aspects of it. You can now meet and interact with people online while immersed in a 3D universe. Here are 5 frontrunners of the new technology: 


VRChat is a game full of virtual worlds where people can upload avatars, create new objects, and explore with their friends. While there are non-adults that play this game as well, they can be muted or ignored completely as you go through the world and meet like-minded people to hang out with. 

Once you have your group, you can find a private server to chat or hang out. VRChat is constantly being updated as people add more worlds, so you will never run out of places to explore. 


Sansar is a VR community that allows you to attend concerts without leaving your home, hang out and dance with your friends, and join Meet-and-greets. As you progress on your time in the world, you will unlock more features and special rewards. 

There are endless events and worlds you can explore allowing you to attend many a party (and after-party, and after-after party). 

Rec Room 

Rec Room is a virtual reality social club where you can play mini-games, create virtual worlds (without having to understand coding), and make friends from around the world. This game hosts over a million different worlds that allow players to practice their online parkour skills, engage in paintball competitions, explore haunted castles, and much more.

This platform lives by the motto, “When in doubt, build it,” and they continually create to satisfy their customers. 


Altspace is a virtual world where you are able to set up events, host meetups, or give a class. You can attend concerts, watch improv comedy, and even go to VR church. There are hundreds of events you can choose from on a daily basis and a place for everyone in this world. 

Easily browse events and attend the ones you want. Connect with other people and make new friends along the way. 

Google Earth VR

Google Earth VR allows you to walk or fly through specific places on earth. Want to fly through the Grand Canyon or walk the streets of Paris? With this platform, you can. While nothing will beat the experience of actually traveling to a specific place and visiting it yourself, you will be able to see things in a different way than you have ever experienced in the past.

Top Virtual Worlds for Adults

While these virtual worlds were not created for virtual reality, they have been around for years and have grown in popularity. Here are 5 of the most popular virtual worlds for adults:

Second Life

Second Life is currently the largest virtual world in existence. While it isn’t designed for VR, you can explore the world wearing a Virtual Reality headset. The universe was designed and created by users and people have actually been able to earn a living playing the game. In fact, Ailin Graef (better known by her game-name Anshe Chung) became a millionaire through the real estate on the game. 

While the game hasn’t returned to its peak of 1.1 million active users from years ago, it is still very popular and has an active economy. The game allows you to express your creativity and make good friendships with other players. 

red light center

Red Light Center 

Red Light Center is a massive multiplayer sex game. Named and based off of Amsterdam’s famous Red Light District, this game has several different rooms that feature virtual nightclubs, theatres, and bars. There are rooms for virtually every sexual fantasy where people engage in cybersex. 


IMVU (the name doesn’t stand for anything) is a social networking game that was released in 2004. In it, you create 3D avatars where you can meet new people. This virtual world is best known for its vast virtual goods catalog, which boasts more than 40 million items. 

Blue Mars

Blue Mars was released in 2009 but still considers itself in open beta. This game allows users to create virtual worlds, MMOG games, shops, entertainment venues, simulation, clothing and much, much more. You can create all of these items through the Sandbox Editor SDK suite. 

Game Worlds

There are several game worlds that have become quite popular, even among adults. These include the maps of World of Warcraft, Minecraft, and The Sims Franchise. Each of these games has a unique way of drawing the player in and getting them involved with the story. Many people have made great online friends through the playing of this game and after hours of playing together. 


Whatever world you choose, we hope that you will find people to connect with and be able to enjoy new adventures. Push your creativity to the limit to go after the fantasies you want.
