SLR stands for Sex Like Real.
If you click around online exploring the VR porn terrain, it won’t be long before you cross paths with the SLR gang. Along with people bashing the SLR gang.
This SLR project generates considerable controversy and insult.
But, you know what you won’t find anywhere?
You won’t find what I consider an actual fucking analysis of this project.
So, I wrote one. Here it is…
Sex Like Real uses an extraordinarily aggressive marketing strategy that can sometimes disrupt online conversations, seem excessively self-serving, and has a tendency to generate aggravated responses. And, conversely, sometimes SLR’s commentary and information is actually quite helpful and uniquely insightful.
Being honest with you, when observing SLR’s online presence, I’ve found myself thinking sometimes, “C’mon, you’re overdoing it.” And, I’ve also found myself thinking, “Ah, that’s a pretty damn excellent explanation of ______________.”
Use A Man’s Bandwidth? Shut Your Mouth
And, I’ve also found myself repeatedly juicing their bandwidth as I download the free previews they host. I figure if you’re putting a hit on the server they pay for…well, I figure as long as you’re tapping their server, you should temper your critiques accordingly. What do you think?
Well, what I think is if you’re downloading free previews from a website…if your credit card’s staying in your wallet and files are being downloaded to your hard drive, you just lost the right to talk bullshit.
I mean…it seems a bit punk-ass to talk about what a bunch of spammers they are while simultaneously downloading fifteen free previews off their server…No?
For me, it’s all about the product
Additionally, when the Fleshlight meets the weenie, I don’t deep-down give a fuck about their marketing strategy. I evaluate products. This VR porn space has gotten tough. You do what you have to do.
The truth is VR porn’s still a niche in a niche with far too many competitors for its market size. This is how things get.
So, there’s marketing and bashing…but, ultimately there’s the product.
Truth and bullshit
Findvrporn, like always, is here to separate truth from bullshit.
In the little VR porn enclave and so-called community, there’s often a bad faith foundation behind attacks. I’ve seen that time and again. Hell, you can write-up ideas that inspire the formation of brand-new studios and get called a spammer for your trouble.
So, don’t believe the bullshit. And, my friends, there’s an awful lot of bad faith bullshit out there.
Hell, I remember when VR porn was first getting started. There was Virtual Real Porn, Naughty America and BaDoinkVR. And, as far as non-studio sites; there was us, the virpio guy, Sex Like Real, VRporn.com, the Oculus NSFW subreddit (back when it was legit) and a bit more: but, not a whole lot more, man!
Sex Like Real has arguably done better than most. There’s a reason for that. Success doesn’t happen accidentally.
And, when you factor everything (including all the technological/transcoding etc. etc. along with info sharing/the help they’ve given studios), they’ve arguably had as big of an impact as anyone. The truth is SLR (along with VRporn.com) have probably contributed more than anyone concerning expanding VR porn’s reach and market.
Yes, of course, without the actual studios there would be nothing. And, this website is always expressing gratitude to the studios and stars for their hard work and innovation.
But, there’s a reason so many studios have a business relationship with SLR. There’s a reason—despite the naive attacks you see—that studios pay a commission to sites that send them converting traffic. This is all one big business with multiple, necessary parts.
And, the truth is…they’ve given a platform to little underdog VR porn efforts. I fucking like that a lot. I ain’t gonna lie. I like a project that gives the little guy a chance.
The truth is…I fucking love that. This world often seems designed to hold everything in place where it is…Interesting/creative stuff very often comes from little indie sources that just don’t have the apparatus to get anywhere.
SLR is a project touting itself as “the Netflix of VR porn.”
And, instead of initially browsing through movies, a good way to first grasp the scope of this project is browsing the library by pornstars (pictured below). You click a particular actress and you can access her work—in many cases—from several different studios. That’s what makes this project appealing. It allows you to give many different studios a comprehensive exploration.
I’ve had a Netflix subscription for over ten years now. And, while—let’s be honest—most marketing tends to be misleading: describing Sex Like Real as VR porn’s Netflix is actually remarkably accurate: for both good and bad!
Much like Netflix has some great content that more than justifies the monthly cost, there’s excellent stuff it doesn’t have. But hey, you’re paying Netflix like $13 a month: what do you want?
Similarly, Sex Like Real lacks included full-lengths from some of the world’s best VR porn studios. But, it does have a lot of great studio content included in their sub. Honestly, it surprises me just how much great VR is included.
I don’t bullshit you about your money. I always emphasize how a guy must determine if the thing is right for him specifically…and, honestly, it really does surprise me just how much that SLR $25 monthly gets you. As of today, that would be 3449 movies. Tomorrow, that number will be higher.
Am I personally pulling $25 out of my pocket for an SLR subscription?
Yes, I am.
The standout studios for me include ZexyVR (major props Zexy), Virtual Real Porn, VR Bangers, SexBabes VR (very underrated studio by the way), Sins VR (also terribly underrated), LethalHardcore VR (definitely underrated), TmwVRnet, VR Conk (intensely underrated), StasyQ VR, WankItNow VR and a few others. Those are my personal favorites.
Honestly, they’ve also got a bunch of stuff not quite ready for prime time. Yes, indeed. But, that will go with the terrain when you’re an open platform giving everybody a shot. And, as mentioned, I love how everybody gets a shot.
Additionally, you don’t always get every release that the studio offers. You’ll want to take a look for yourself at all the studios they have and how many releases from each.
Clarification about diamond color from SLR 6/30/2019: A green diamond means the whole library is featured in Premium and grey diamond means there’s a partial library. A new development is that SLR now lists the exact number of scenes available in the partial libraries.
And, if there’s no diamond, that means the studio’s scene previews are available and, in some cases, the scene can be individually purchased. Personally, I don’t find the individual purchase to always be the best value. For example, you can buy the single Virtual Real Porn video Hidden Threesome with Jade Kush and Chloe Couture from SLR for $12.99. Well, you can take a month for $18.79 and download Hidden Threesome along with over 400 other VRP scenes.
But, if you browse through their discounted section, you can pick up some VR Conk videos for $1.99. And, that’s a great deal! So, the individual purchase aspect is a bit of a mixed bag.
And, if there’s a particular starlet that you’re particularly horny for…then, it could be the right option for you.
In addition to that, you can pretty much download free trailers via SLR from everything they have to offer.
I find the best way to get your money’s worth out of Sex Like Real is to click the PREMIUM link towards the upper-left of the page (pictured below).
SLR’s actual negatives
So, all of that sounds pretty good. What’s the negative part of the critique?
I don’t count the online bashing as an actual negative because that’s genuine inside baseball terrain. The average fella is unaware of the back-and-forth bickering of some obscure, crooked little subreddit. The average fella just wants a legit product and good deal.
Well, most noteworthy, the subscription does not include full-length releases from CzechVR, WankzVR or MilfVR.
So, for somebody who’s pursuing the VR porn experience with some seriousness, there ain’t no way a SLR subscription alone will suffice. But, on the other hand, for somebody who’s pursuing the VR porn experience with some seriousness, there ain’t no way to not have a SLR subscription.
Because the SLR sub gives you access to a huge number of different VR porn studios for that $25. And, subscribing to those studios individually would kill you. Personally, in order to write the solo vr porn guide, I simply had to take an SLR sub. There’s no other way I could have done it.
Now, a few more noteworthy aspects and recap
1. Even if you don’t want to extract your credit card, SLR provides the best free way to sample the VR porn terrain. I didn’t say a good way. The truth is that they provide the best way, period, to sample the entire VR porn landscape for free via their studio samples. No email sign-up required.
2. If you do extract your credit card…have no fear. These guys run a legit operation. You ain’t dealing with some two-bit little con artists. While SLR takes plenty of heat online for their aggressive marketing, one thing I don’t see is complaints about bullshit charges and other rip-off tactics.
3. They have their own app for viewing their catalog. I have no interest in that. You might.
4. They provide a beautiful way to explore lesser known, indie-type studios.
5. You can buy some individual releases from CVR and such, but I don’t think that’s the way to maximize your money with their project. Your dollar will go the furthest buying the monthly.
6. For somebody just getting started with this VR porn stuff…who wants to have a fairly complete and deeply horny experience…and, if you’re willing to drop a few bucks…what does findvrporn.com recommend? Take a year of MilfVR for $79.95, six months of CzechVR for $84.95 and a year of SLR for $199.99. You drop that $364.89 and you will be pretty much fucking set for some serious 3D wack-time.
Now, bear this in mind: the SLR Premium already gets you 50 VR Bangers videos, 60 Virtual Real Porns, 19 LethalHardcoreVRs (terribly underrated studio that doesn’t get the acclaim they deserve), 99 StasyQ Vrs, 81 SinsVRS (I’ll say it again, such a damn underrated studio!), 235! SexBabesVRs (also underrated)…and, of course, one of my favorite studios that definitely don’t get its deserved chatter: you get 18 ZexyVRs…
…honestly, personally…I sure didn’t mention everything above, but I’m already more than sold just based on what I mentioned above. On the level, man…no hyperbole necessary. Just state the facts because this shit sells itself.
So, between the SLR premium sub, a year of MILF and 6 months of CVR: you’re set as far as findvrporn.com is concerned.
Good luck, SLR. And, thanks.
