Reality Lovers review: A VR site that is only just keeping up

Some four years on from our original Reality Lovers review, not a whole lot has changed at Reality Lovers. The site last underwent a major redesign back in 2018, and has since focused on improving the technical quality of its VR porn scenes, which is no bad thing.

Over the years, the company has updated the site, adding support for higher resolutions scenes — currently maxing out 5K —, and a few years ago, adding support for downloads as well as streaming.

However, it also offers fewer updates per year than some of its larger rivals. Can it still offer as much value as VR porn sites like BaDoinkVR, VRBangersVirtualRealPorn or our other top-rated VR sites.

Reality Lovers Review: User Experience and Content

Reality Lovers is pretty much on a par with VirtualRealPorn as having the single biggest catalog – with a current count of 341+ individual titles, all of which are (thanks to a recent redesign) nice and easy to filter and download in a variety of different formats.

What that adds up to is a huge catalog of dedicated VR porn scenes, but there’s a caveat: Reality Lovers uses a slightly unreliable CDN provider, which means that download time for videos varies wildly for every title. This wouldn’t be as much of an issue if streaming was an option, which it isn’t currently. It’s on the roadmap though.

The scenes seem to vary quite widely in length, from around 23 minutes up to 50+ minutes, but in our testing most of the longer ones were clips that included much more (admittedly still not very much) non-action ‘plot’. For example, in ‘A Boy Meets A Girl‘, roughly 15 minutes of the running time is spent in a restaurant on a date, with the remaining sex scenes taking place back at the apartment later.

Unfortunately, the site doesn’t have a best viewed angle indicator, or icons showing whether titles are 180, 220, 270, or 360-degree scenes, which can lead to a bit of trial and error.

Generally, we test with the same VR player app to get a base level of quality – VAR’s VR Player Pro – but in this case we had better results with the AAA+ VR Cinema. You’ll likely need to do your own testing with a couple of videos to find the best settings for your specific setup. Even better, a standalone headset like an Oculus Rift is a far more hassle-free solution to the problem, and needs less messing around with adjustments.

Reality Lovers Review: Headset Support & Features

Reality Lovers, like other dedicated VR porn sites, supports the usual array of VR headsets, namely: the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR, Daydream and general smartphone VR via Cardboard headsets. It’s also the only site we know of to state support for the VRotica VR porn-specific headset.

Sadly, while the site has been redesigned to be easier to use and have better options to help you quickly find the videos you’re looking for, it doesn’t yet offer an option to stream content directly without downloading it. There’s also no teledildonic device support yet, but last month the company said it was working on adding this capability. There’s no arrival date for teledildonic-compatible videos though.

The catalog is pretty much split in half between scenes that are filmed in POV and others that take a third-party ‘Voyeur’ view. Reality Lovers is also one of the few general VR porn sites that offers VR scenes aimed at women too, which is nice to see.

There’s even an active community section on the site too, which makes getting help simple enough.

Reality Lovers Review: Pricing

Reality Lovers, while not the cheapest site with its above-average price for a single rolling monthly subscription, but it does have options others do not.

For example, if you don’t want to download VR porn scenes, and just stream instead, you can purchase a rolling monthly subscription for $29.99 instead of $39.99 — even better, an annual subscription takes the monthly equivilant price down to $9.99 per month, for streaming and downloads.

Reality Lovers Review: Overall

Once upon a time, Reality Lovers had one of the largest single catalogs of VR porn videos – now, with aggregators offering thousands of scenes from hundreds of studios, that’s no longer the case. Nonetheless, there’s a range of interesting, exclusive scenes available for subscribers.

However, it lacks some of the more advanced features, like teledildonics.

That last point is a bit of a deal-breaker for anyone considering Reality Lovers for interactive toys, but that’s still a minority of VR porn viewers.

With 341+ VR videos across a range of niches and regular updates, it’ll appeal to some people.
