NOTICE! This site ended selling content.

R18.com claims to be the largest collection of Japanese hardcore online. They might actually be correct about that, and you’ll see more about why as we continue. It’s not just traditional videos, either – you’ll find VR films, too. This place is about as comprehensive in terms of variety as you might be able to imagine as well – there are dozens, if not hundreds, of different kinds of Japanese porn to enjoy here. However, we should point out right at the beginning here – unlike most sites, R18 does implement a DRM protection scheme on it’s downloaded videos. You’ll need to use their software to download the videos here. That may make it harder to enjoy them, depending on your context. It’s never good to see such, but let’s go into looking at the library.

More than 330,000 videos and 200,000 galleries, With Multiple Daily Updates, Long Videos, Full HD Resolutions

As of the time of writing for this review, you’ll find that R18’s library contains a shocking 330,000+ videos and 200,000+ galleries. That number will very soon be quite obsolete, as there are multiple new content updates each and every day here. The videos also tend to be much, much longer than average – we believe the average runtime to be around 120 minutes each! Meanwhile, there’s no 4K available here yet, but tens of thousands of the videos are only one step back, at Full HD resolution instead. Be aware that the library includes live action, VR, and hentai, as well as involving both included VOD content, and pay-per-view too. Oh, and sadly most of it is censored, as you might know to expect from Japanese porn.

Mobile-Responsive Site Design, Some Features

As you might expect, the site at R18 is properly mobile-responsive, and we certainly expect a number of usability features with this many videos on offer. You’ll find that the videos are sorted into categories, there’s a nice model index, a good set of sorting options, and a basic search, all to help you find what you want.


    1. Multiple daily updates, alongside several hundred thousand videos across dozens of categories, ensure that you’ll never run out of content to enjoy at R18.
    2. The variety here is really immensely impressive, and even putting the quantity aside, there are very few porn sites that have just this diversity of hardcore in their libraries.


    1. Downloads requiring the site’s own special software, and a weird pricing scheme, as well as no 4K, are the biggest issues dragging R18 back from what otherwise might be a higher score.

Author Rating


Ultimately, though the odd download DRM, several missing features, and the lack of 4K do drag the site down, R18 sails through all of that on the strength of just how truly massive it’s library is. I don’t think it’s actually possible for a person to watch every single movie available on R18, and for that, and it’s commitment to still updating several times every day, the site deserves commendation, straight up. That’s why I’m awarding R18 with a score of 90.8 points, alongside my recommendation to all fans of varied, Asian hardcore content. Especially if you adore Japanese hotties, this is the place to buy into.
