Reality Lovers is a new VR porn site that has been creating waves for the last 12 months with exciting and innovative content.
Operated by a British company, their content has a European feel and the studio is producing some great immersive porn using cutting-edge technology.
Winning a Venus Award in 2016 for the ‘most innovative product’, Reality Lovers is gaining ground in this competitive market and we wanted to know more.
A History of Reality Lovers
Reality Lovers was launched in 2016 and has steadily been rising in popularity now receiving around 750,000 visits each month. A quarter of the traffic to the site is from the USA with the UK following in second place with 6.79%, Japan with 5.24% and the Dutch and the Germans contributing around 4% of the volume each.
The site is operated by a UK company, Virtual Reality Dreams Ltd (formerly Lisox Limited) and has been largely focusing on UK and European markets. However, 2017 has seen the sites U.S. presence increase and the jump in viewing traffic can mostly be attributed to the American audience.
The company has held quite a few roadshows over the last year to promote the site which has given audiences the chance to meet some of the stars of the show. It is worth staying in touch via their blog to receive updated news about where and when the next tours are happening.
Reality Lovers: Overview
The concept of Reality Lovers is slightly different to other VR porn sites in that members can download videos on demand. There is a choice of monthly membership fees but you can also pay for just the individual videos that you want (see Costs of Membership, below).
There are currently in excess of 130 videos to watch with most being around 30 minutes in length.
The range of categories covered by Reality Lovers is broad and, though it is mostly mainstream content, there are some niche videos you won’t find in too many other places. Categories include BDSM, food play, insertions and teabagging alongside the more vanilla tags of teen, lesbian and anal.
Each video has a gallery of high quality stills from the scene which should help you make your mind up before you commit to a download.
The site has a really useful forum service where members can discuss anything from technical issues to VR specific queries like teledildonics. The requests and suggestions areas is also no doubt used to inform the sites operators on just what members want to see next. As well as the forum, the blog pages have regular information about VR and VR porn. Sign up to the site’s newsletter to receive bonus content and offers from Reality Lovers.
The videos mostly feature European porn stars and include some popular stars such as Alex Black, Monika Benz, Holly Banks and Texas Patti. Tattoo lovers will want to watch out for The Cruel Jarushka, a hardcore scene with BDSM and rough sex.
New content is added to the site every week and clips are all rated by members to give you an indication of quality before you download.
Most of the content available is filmed in 4K with binaural sound, 180 degree POV and 60 frames per second. Some videos are available in your choice of perspective; POV or voyeur.
Content can only be downloaded and not streamed at this point but the host servers are quite quick so the only delays will be in your own connection speeds. The average file size is between 1GB and 6GB.
The videos work with a whole range of the most common headsets including Samsung Gear, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive as well as smartphones.
The site has a really useful help section and includes tutorials on the blog pages (only accessible to members).
Reality Lovers: Costs of Membership
The initial cost of membership is a choice of being able to download one, three or five videos at a cost of $9.99, $19.99 or $24.99. Films must be downloaded within a 30 day period and the charge is set-up to be automatically recurring each month.
You will need to cancel your subscription to prevent this charge from being taken from your credit card.
Reality Lovers: Bonus Content
At present there is no additional bonus material offered to members when they sign up for a subscription.
Reality Lovers: Our Verdict
The site has a lot of content that covers a really broad range and you can find videos by category or pornstar only. With the addition of new material being uploaded at least once a week, the library is only getting more appealing.
It could be easier to browse for content but the addition of galleries more than make up for this.
The quality of the content is also very good and the innovation of viewing perspective choices makes the experience both more immersive as well as interactive.
We particularly like the forum facility and would like to see more sites putting up this kind of function. Not only does it help form loyalty and community for a site but they are very informative and useful for reference.
The cost of membership is quite high compared to other VR porn sites especially when you consider that you are limited to just a few downloads each month. In addition, Reality Lovers doesn’t offer any bonus content from within its own, or any affiliate’s, networks. We’d like to see this change.
Overall, the site has come a long way in just 12 months and is punching in the top weight for a newcomer. There are some minor complaints, mainly on the price, but Reality Lovers is definitely a site to keep checking back on if you aren’t prepared to commit to subscription just yet.
