If you have a very specific fantasy in mind when it comes to porn, your Reality Kings account could very well be your new best friend. The long-running premium hardcore site offers up thousands of scenes for every outlandish or conceivable (heterosexual) fantasy there is. From basics like light BDSM and big butts to more complicated or highly specific kinks like “I am a sexy boat captain,” Reality Kings is a leader in the porn space, slowly creeping up on other giants like Pornhub Premium and Brazzers.

Does a wide selection of videos make Reality Kings worth your time? Here’s what you need to know about Reality Kings porn, from included premium features, cost, and all the pros and cons.

TRY REALITY KINGS FREE

 

If you’re used to free streaming sites, Reality Kings will prove to be a change of pace. First of all, you need a membership to use it. Sure, you can find Reality Kings content reposted on tube sites like Pornhub. But for full, high-quality videos, it’s best to pay up. Like with most adult sites, you’ll save if you sign up for a longer membership. Paying month-to-month at $29.99 per month adds up to $359.88 annually. That’s $239 more than a one-time payment for an annual membership. Heck, a three-month membership is the same cost as two months at full price. Even the three-month package costs the same as two months at full price. If you’re thinking about subscribing, save yourself some money in the process and guarantee longer access.

What’s included with your Reality Kings subscription?

1) Over 11,600 scenes

Reality Kings is an oddity in the porn world simply because it’s been operating for so long. Founded in 2000, this porn site has an 18-year backlog of videos to peruse. There’s a massive library (11,600-plus scenes) with new scenes added every day. It’s impossible to get bored on Reality Kings if only because of the almost overwhelming amount of content available. Over the last few years, the site has switched over to primarily HD video. But because it’s been running for so long don’t be surprised if you come across older, standard dimension clips.

2) New scenes added every day

Two scenes are added every day Monday through Friday, with one additional scene added every Saturday and Sunday. That adds up to over 600 scenes added to the site each year. You’ll likely run out of enthusiasm before Reality Kings runs out of porn to show you. We wish there were more couples porn content, but Reality Kings doesn’t exactly present itself as that kind of site. Users come to Reality Kings for fantasy-driven gonzo porn, and that’s it.

3) Over 7,700 pornstars from amateurs to famous names

When Reality Kings started the site almost exclusively hired unknown porn performers from Florida. As they grew and market tastes changed, they started hiring more mainstream performers. What that means for you is Reality Kings is one of the rare sites that has a mix of amateurs you don’t know and today’s biggest names like Bonnie Rotten, Brandi Love, and Dani Daniels. It adds to the incredible variety found on the site and provides a nice change of pace when you get used to one kind of scene.

4) Clever themed Reality Kings sites

It seems like every porn site comes with its own selection of adjacent “exclusive sites.” But Reality Kings truly sets itself apart with 45 individual sites. Rather than 45 variations of the same theme, you’ll find a unique and expansive collection that might introduce you to new fantasy scenarios. There are sites for people banging at the club, boat fantasies, sexy massages, amateur lesbian roommates—you name it. From group sex to gonzo scenes to Dom/sub play, Reality Kings leaves no stone unturned. Except, well, porn that’s made for anyone other than straight, cisgender men.

Reality Kings porn: What needs improvement?

Diversity

Reality Kings might boast a “diverse” cast of women performers, but they box POC stars into often fetishizing roles. “8th Street Latinas” and “Round and Brown” are two sites that publish problematic content. You’ll still find non-white performers featured in other parts of the site, but there is no gay porn in sight and lesbian scenes are filmed quite obviously with the male gaze in mind. If you’re looking for queer porn, we suggest you stay far away from Reality Kings. Still, at least paying for your porn is the way to go if you care about fair treatment and compensation for the performers whose identities you categorize.

For the most part, Reality Kings does everything you’d think a hetero porn site would. If you know that’s what you’re getting into with a Reality Kings account, you probably won’t be surprised.

Is Reality Kings worth it?

Reality Kings is almost refreshing in its honestly, a place for hardcore fantasies to be explored within the confines of defined stories. Most Reality Kings scenes make a point of highlighting the performer, but there’s still a focus on the story. If you’ve ever wanted to live out a fantasy, there’s a good chance Reality Kings already has a scene waiting.

We love that the site offers a diverse lineup of performers and an even longer list of specific fantasies to explore. Seriously, we didn’t have time to cover them all, but if you have a heteronormative fantasy scenario is here. Plus, Reality Kings’ longevity is a big selling point, since members gain access to nearly 20 years of underground porn.

While its categories are problematic, the site employs and features more women of color than other big name HD porn sites. It’s not the best, but it’s not a bad deal. And if you’re a straight dude, chances are you will find something very straightforward here that will get the job done. 

Reality Kings’ steady stream of content and clever embrace of its themes makes it easy to become a repeat customer. There’s not much BDSM content, but other than that it’s ready to fulfill all your fantasies.
