As a VR porn expert, I often get asked for recommendations. I try to steer people toward sites with the niches they like, but sometimes they’re looking for a variety of content – a one-stop VR porn shop if you will. When that happens, I like to introduce them to Sex Like Real! Imagine going to a buffet and being so hungry that you devour all the delicious food in front of you. That’s what I felt when I visited the site on my Oculus Quest 2.
Sex Like Real produces some of their own original content, but for the most part, their larger-than-life library comes from elsewhere like VR Bangers, BaDoink VR and Wankz VR. There are dozens of studios contributing their content, so you get to try out different experiences with different babes including Adriana Chechik, Kira Noir and Vina Sky, as well as a ton of amateurs too.
To get started, I had to create a (free) account that would let me sample the entire library with two-minute trailers, and then I had the option to buy the full scene. The one I was watching costs $5, but some are as high as $12. The other option is a premium $30 monthly membership that gives you access to 16,000+ scenes and counting! The pay-per-view scenes are not included with that option.
I’ve been seeing a lot of VR porn scenes coming in at 60 to 90 frames per second these days. Basically, the higher the frame rate, the smoother and more immersive the video, and at 90fps, you can expect a superior experience. Now, what if I told you that Sex Like Real has videos that go up to 7K and 120fps? They’re truly mindblowing and to say they run smoothly would be an understatement. They look real, giving credibility to the site name. Combine that with the binaural sound and you’re going to forget where you are!
You’re going to need a powerful headset like the Oculus Quest 2 to get the most out of your experience. The reason the Quest 2 runs these videos so well is that it has:
If you watch them on a PSVR or a similar HMD, they will still have smooth playback, but won’t have the capability to run at 6K. As great as the Valve Index or HTC Vive are, they’re two of the more expensive devices currently and may be out of your budget. That doesn’t mean you should miss out on the action though! If you’re using a basic headset like the Oculus Go or Samsung Gear (both discontinued), you can watch thousands of 4K and 5K videos.
Under normal circumstances, I’d recommend downloading the videos, but on Sex Like Real, streaming is the way to go. There’s so much content that unless you’ve got a loaded hard drive, it could end up being a waste of time downloading and transferring things to your headset, especially considering you’ll see next to no latency issues. To really take advantage, you can double things up with one of two media players. The in-house SLR player has an appealing iTunes-like interface, but you’ll need to download it directly from the site and then install it on your computer because it’s not available in any app stores right now.
Since the SLR player takes a couple of extra steps, you can opt to use Deo VR instead. If you’re using an Oculus HMD, you can log in using your Sex Like Real credentials and voila! You’ve got the entire library at your disposal on a theatre-like interface. Just click on any video and it’ll immediately stream on your headset. Buffering issues can sometimes crop up, but I encountered none with this app.
You can create and customize your own virtual adventure. With Sex Like Real’s search engine and filtering options, you can find anything your heart desires quickly and easily. Have a favorite pornstar? Enter her name or use the search bar and she’ll be there right in front of you. Looking for a specific niche? Use the categories tab and find it instantly.
When it comes to the technical aspects, you can personalize things a little more. Change the playback speed, adjust the head tracking, zoom in and out, and change the contrast, brightness and color saturation to get things just right.
Whether you’re new to VR porn or have been experiencing it for years, as I have, Sex Like Real is a great choice. It’s free to join and watch the short trailers, so at the very least, there’s no harm in checking it out and doing a little exploring. You can dip your toes in and maybe purchase a video or two, or just dive right in and get yourself a premium membership.
