Humans are always doing disgusting things and technology certainly has had unintended negative consequences. For example I doubt that the inventors of the internet thought of all the terrible uses we know today. I don't think that silly headset will make any particular difference.
In recent history, porn drove the creation and adoption of video streaming and E-commerce and it is one of the first ways that any communication, storage or artistic medium is used.
The only person I know who has one of those funky 5.2mm stereo lenses uses it to make money via Manyvids.com. Anyone who thinks porn is not a driver for expensive tech need only look at what happened with early video cassette recording or, you know, the entire history of photography.
