SOA7′s RealTouch Review (21st February 2010) :
I finally got the chance to use the real touch after it was sitting in the closet for two days because I couldn’t get the time to use it.
But I finally broke it out tonight so here goes:
At first I was not happy at all and ready to pack it up and send it back because it wouldn’t work on my desktop at all. I wasted over 20 mins of video time trying to trouble shoot to figure out why the hell my WMP wouldn’t reconize it and tec support via live chat took over an hour and a half to conclude they didn’t know what the problem was either. I still havn’t figured it out but thankfully I had a laptop at my brothers house so I went and got that which worked fine with the program. The anger was now gone.
To the action: I have to admit while testing it out I clicked on the first vid I saw just to make sure it was syncing to the device right and accidently clicked on a tranny vid ….EWWW!! Whats worse is it took about 30 seconds to figure that out (which btw what the hell is that doing in the straight section anyways?) but at least I knew it worked..
So thats when I looked up my fav porn star and fired up a real run and was very impressed! For two belts this thing does a LOT and there was no delay so it was timed with the video perfectly. All the acts had their own feeling and it was close enough for me to how it would really feel. When the action speeds up so does the machine and when it slows down the teasing begins. I fired off a good round and can’t wait to go back for seconds.
All the cons are obvious but worring about conserving my mins did ruin it a little….aebn mins are so much cheaper….y not use those prices?
Anyways the thought of connecting the laptop to the 40″ lcd 1080p flatscreen while the realtouch drains my balls gives me a hard on just thinking about it…..I have got to get the cord to connect those together!
it sure would be nice to see these vids in hdmi blueray too……wow gotta go I think im ready for round 2.
boopy55′s RealTouch Review (31st Dercemeber 2009) :
so i just got mine in the mail today, havent cum in 2 days so i was really ready to go, i put some lube in the resevoir and let it warm up. didnt seem to feel like it was lubing itself so i went ahead and smeared some on my dick. found the first video they had on there stuck my dick in the machine..so far nothing was happening. well after the video started was still waiting for any action so i minimised the screen then brought it back up thats when the machine started up. WOW did it feel good. at first i couldnt tell if the luber thingy was working but then it got to a part where the girl came and i heard a buzzing sound and felt a cold wetness and DAMN DIT IT FELL GOOD. the cool wetness of the lube wetting you up is unbeatable. i love the randomness of that happening. pretty fun til i guess the lube got the same warm temp of the machine and i didnt feel it when the lube sprayed me, maybe cuz it was already so wet. anyways after watching several videos i found a really good one “cythera” or something. she rides you really good thats a good video to see and the action of the machine is good for that one. came harder than i ever had before..this machine is freaking awesome! but so far i burned thru my mins only have 14 left >_< was really enjoying this wonderful toy for a loooooong time thru several videos fighting the urge to cum so i could see all this thing can do and man it still has some tricks in this little robo love machine. I only wish they would let you buy a permanent dvd or something so you could get some use out of it when your broke lol i Mean realtouch, you guys got my 200 bux can ya give at least one stinkin freebie. people will still use your vod to see and feel other things in other situations but yeah would really like to have one little permanent video to see….what happens if our internet gets cancelled? anyways love this toy its THE BEST sex toy for men ever…i mean ever!
Joh Doe’s RealTouch review (12th November 2009)
(an experienced sex toy user)
Realism: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Uniqueness: 5 out of 5 Stars
Enjoyability: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Setup: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Cleanup: 3 out of 5 stars
Value: 4 out of 5 stars
ORDERING Experience: 3 Out of 5 stars
No email confirmation was given after purchase, which made me a little uneasy. I called customer support and they informed me that a confirmation email would be sent once the Real Touch shipped, usually in about 2 days.
Total Delivery Time: 1 week after order
Shipping confirmation: 2.5 days after order
Time before UPS had tracking information: 3.5 days after order
Realism: 3.5 out of 5 stars
There are moments durring blow job scenes that feel real for a few seconds. Otherwise the difference is obvious. However it is autonomous and simulates most action very well which makes it very enjoyable and semi-convincing when not “realistic”.
Uniqueness: 5 out of 5 Stars
There is Nothing on the market to compare to this. Yes there is room for improvement, but this is over-all a huge first step in the right direction.
Enjoyability: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Even if it’s a pain in the ass, it’s worth it because it’s very enjoyable.
Setup: 3.5 out of 5 stars
The machine it’s self had the new rubber/silicon smell and needed a cleaning, which was fairly painless and took about 30 minutes to dry.
The video crashed under Media player 11 and required a rollback to a previous version as well as 2 hours of troubleshooting with support. Other than that it is easy to set up.
Cleanup: 3 out of 5 stars
Washing the machine out is cake. The thing leaks lube like crazy though and the cover can be hard to open which is enough to drop the rating down two stars in my opinion.
Value: 4 out of 5 stars
The machine is a amazing value at that price, however the cost of minutes and the amount of lube needed drops it down by an entire star.
I would rather pay 400$ for the machine and $100 per 2 hour bluray and a 4.95 per month subscription fee to the website loaded with free 2 minute samples with minutes costing 1/2 what they do now. Or in a perfect world even be willing to pay 700-1000 for the Real Touch accompanied by a offline integrated version of 3DSexvilla 2 or equivalent.
For those of you who really want realism, my own creation:
Get a “Perfect Ass Cyberskin Natural Pussy and Anus” 174$ at vibeshop and a “CyberSkin Cyber Sex Buddy Vagina ” 50$ at vibeshop, carefully cut around the tunnel of the CyberSkin Cyber Sex Buddy Vagina until it has walls about 1/2 an inch to 3/4 inch around then use a little lube on the outside to insert into the ribbed(which perfectly helps hold it in) vaginal hole of the Perfect Ass Cyberskin Natural Pussy and Anus. Use ID Warming Sensation lube for the inside and enjoy. Cleanup is a pain because the Perfect Ass is 16 pounds, however the combination creates the most realistic toy I’ve come across so far.
First44′s RealTouch Review (31st October 2009) :
I consider myself pretty critical….I have a Venus 2000, which I liked initially, but got bored with. Also, have a selection of Fleshjacks….and I kind of got bored with those as well. I think it has to do with being “in charge” of how much thrusting and stroking. BUT today I got my Real Touch. It is a bit messy to get set up (others have already hit the large amount of lube it takes — so just be aware that this is a baseline requirement. Now, about the experience. Setup went very smoothly — I’m running a MacBook Pro, but using Windows Vista since Real Touch won’t work with OSX (bummer, and they ought to get this fixed pronto). It did the lube warmup routine, as promised. I found a video I thought would be hot…..got semi-hard and inserted my cock. Then the action began. HOLY SHIT! I can usually jack off or edge for a very long time (I mean a VERY long time). Within about 2 minutes, this machine had me ready to shoot. As I watched the scene it absolutely kept cadence with the video. Blow job to various fuck positions. I wish I could say that I shot when they did, but I’d be lying. I lasted about 5 minutes. That’s it. And I am a total jack off expert. I decided that while I probably won’t use the Real Touch every day, it will definitely get a workout. It’s worth the high price just for the total lack of control that I had over what my body was doing. OHMIGOD!!
(update 8th November 2009) :
I’ve had mine for a couple of weeks now, but was out of town last week, so couldn’t play with it. I hooked it up today, and I just gotta say, I LOVE THIS DEVICE. It has added a completely new dimension to masturbation. So far, I’m unable to last more than about 10 minutes, despite pausing it and cooling off. If you skip to the end of the video — whether it’s a fuck or a blowjob, the RealTouch seems to go into some kind of orgasmic deal that could pull cum out of a corpse.
Semejarab’s RealTouch Review (26th October 2009 ) :
Real Touch Review
I will be honest in saying that my first real touch experience was disappointing. I was like a kid in the candy store watching the UPS tracking number that day. I watched all of the videos online for how-to, clean-up, etc and was ready to try this for about 3 months before getting the toy.
Install and setup was pretty easy, but my account was lacking 30 min of free playtime. Customer service has always been very nice and overly helpful, and this was fixed right away.
The first few videos I played were great for about 2 minutes, then I would get streaming errors. You can imagine how frustrating this is when you have a raging hard on and are having a good time to see “buffering”, or get an error that quits windows media player all together. I ended up burning through 30 min of minutes that night and only finishing one time. Probably my biggest mistake is that I never really “saw realtouch in action” so I didn’t know if my machine was acting up. Sure enough, my lube reservoir was not putting enough lube, and I will just say that rug-burn on your dick is VERY painful for the next few days. All in all, in hindsight, I think a lot of those issues can be fixed with experience and more tutorials.
The next session I told myself I wanted this thing to be as awesome as I imagined, so I did the following:
1. Updated .net to the most recent version for my machine.
2. Flushed out the lube reservoir
3. Changed buffering time to 2 min of time instead of the 20 seconds it had.
4. Changed the internet speed settings in WMP.
5. Ran TWO warm up cycles, and did a visual check in between.
I will tell you it was a TOTALLY different experience here. This time I probably could have stopped at 3 minutes, but found myself pausing and taking breaks so I could continue the most amazing double blow job of my life. I probably would have blown the back out of that bitch if the plastic shell was not so strong. I ended up using it 4 times that night, just b/c I could not put it away. Pro-tip here. Buy minutes in bulk. I got 200 minutes for $90 instead. When you are 1/2 way there and you run out of minutes, the odds are you will pay ANYTHING for it to keep going. Be smart, think ahead and buy them when you are not in the mood to use the toy. Remember, you only have so much blood, and it can’t be in your brain and your junk at once.
I DON’T have the lube problem that most people are talking about, as you can manually control the lube dispensing, and I just turned it down. I put a towel
Overall, more tutorial videos, teaching people to use the device more, more tutorials, better FAQs. I know there are many people from realtouch on the site who read this forum, so I thought I would post a wishlist for improvements from a fan.
1. Allow for a preview of the video, even if it is just a picture. No offense, but when I click on a video, I want to see what it’s about before I notice it’s a 50 year old redhead blowing a black man. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it’s just not my thing.
2. Keep the porn stars section update more. Some stars only list one video, but I have seen them in two or three.
3. Always make sure your videos are working. I have probably killed 40 minutes on the same anime video that is broken. Why do I keep clicking on it then? The girls has GINORMOUS boobs, and I want in on that shit.
4. Find a way for people to disable the orafice. It sounds like I’m getting blown in a mechanics shop, and I’m curious if my device is breaking. I have big junk, deal with it realtouch. I find myself avoiding videos that take advantage of that aspect so I don’t have to deal with the noise.
5. When sorting by “sex act” don’t show all of the same movies. I realize that women give you a blowjob, then maybe some reverse cowgirl, then a cumshot, etc. When I click on BJ, I want just a nice long blow, not 20 seconds of it then anal. Perhaps show a sequence of events with times per video.
6. Allow a “climax mode” which people can push when they finally come. I like to ease into that kind of thing, and the realtouch does not know when you are coming or not. when I know I’m going to come, allow a button to give like 1/2 speed, etc. It’s almost been too much sometimes and I pull out b/c it’s more painful than pleasurable when some girl is grinding too hard.
7. Have an “updates” page. So people can know what you are working on.
Shunt1′s RealTouch review (24th October 2009 ) :
First off, this is a fantastic product and I have been amazed and thrilled with it!
By now, most people have learned that this item leaks like a seive with the lubrication. I had not told my wife about this new item, but the next day, she was wondering why my computer desk chair was all wet.
Tip: Use tape along the seams to contain the lubrication fluid while in use. Simple masking tape worked for me on my next testing session, but anything that can seal the gap will work just fine.
Both my wife and I have studied this new machine to figure out what was actually working, and the items that could use a little improvement. Obviously, the water-proof sealing is a major priority. I will play around with this problem, but a simple silicone bead (as a gasket) around the edge of the cover would probably fix that problem.
In 2000, my wife was in a horrible auto accident and now has an artificial hip. In 2006, I crash my airplane and now have an artifical spinal segment.
Sex for us is almost impossible now, although we try our best! However, when both people are moining and groining because of the pain in our bones, it kinda takes the fun out of it.
This pay-per-view business plan will not work and I hope that AEBN will realize this very rapidly. I would not have any problems paying for a DVD with the encoded binary data which I then owned, but I do have a major problem trusting a new company that may or not survive more than a few year. When this company does fail, then everything that I have invested will become useless.
I love my wife so very much, but sex has become almost impossible for us.
Please sell me the software so that I can encode my own new videos!
We have old VHS video recording of my wife and I having sex together from 20 years ago when we first got married.
We could both watch these old videos, while physically feeling what it felt like back then.
Can you make this wish come true?
WolfpupNX’s RealTouch Review :
Got my RealTouch today and wanted to give a rundown of my thoughts after it’s very first use (~20 minutes)! Going to be as thorough as I can, but I also want to emphasize these are my first impression – it’s going to take a few uses with the thing to really get a feel for it.
First off, I need to mention packaging. I would suggest the company package a bit better as my box (a plain brown box and not double boxed) arrived in quite bad shape and even slightly open (to the point where the delivery person could have peeked if he wanted to by prying the open part slightlyr, though it wouldn’t have been too obvious what it was unless he was in the know). Fortunately the contents all seemed fine. I did not have to sign for the package.
There’s quite a bit more than I initially thought as far as chords for the device, but the good thing is most (the “tower”) can be left plugged in after set up so in subsequent uses only one plug needs to be inserted. It also comes with a bottle of lube and documentation. Setup wasn’t difficult as long as you’re familiar with USB, etc.
For some reason, I couldn’t find instructions to login the first time, and as far as I can tell they were never sent to me by e-mail. Fortunately, I called RealTouch and within 2 minutes I was into the site – very friendly and helpful support with almost no hold time. Kudos for that!
Software installed without issue – fast and easy download. Do make sure you look at the directions and make sure the RealTouch plugin is enabled in Windows Media Player when you play your first video (see directions).
This thing drinks a *lot* of lube. As in, the bottle they provided (only 3.5 oz, but still) is 5/6 gone with one fill. When I first filled it, it didn’t seem to be dispensing properly during warmup and my initial go, but fortunately I squirted a bit more more in and it suddenly started working – must be the pump took a bit to get going. Warmup mode isn’t bad at all, two minutes of it heating up and running its belts.
You can definitely hear it, but it’s not as noisy as I expected – pretty quiet; I’d say quieter than a Venus 2000 for those familiar with that.
Now, for how it feels. It feels pretty freaking good, and it really does provide a hands free experience (though you may have to hold it/guide it a lil – I got it propped against the edge of my keyboard tray pretty easily and securely though, with only occasional hand adjustment).
I’ll be blunt that the sex acts themselves don’t feel 100% like the real thing (but there’s only so much you can do with a system of belts, and it does a very good job of varying sensation for how it works). Don’t get me wrong – it feels great, but it’s still not exactly fucking an orifice (ass in my case – haven’t tried hetero vids yet). The head/blowjobs seem a bit more realistic than the penetration for me.
Once you accept it’s not going to feel exactly authentic, it’s a lot of fun, and pretty exciting, to be feeling sensations along with the video you’re watching. The lube splash that happens occasionally (or that you can manually trigger) is a very unique sensation and a lot of fun, and the video encoding works well and really does move synced nicely with the vids.
Like some other posters mentioned, sometimes it almost seems like the thing is moving too fast and desensitizes you to it during fast scenes. I too prefer the slower scenes because you feel a lot more. I think even with the faster scenes, I’d prefer the fast motion be somehow indicated more with fast alterations (in direction for example) than with fast belt speeds.
I did encounter just a bit of the clicking another review mentioned, but not a lot of it. At one point, also, I was in the device and it was feeling not-so-great. I’m not sure why…it wasn’t painful exactly but wasn’t pleasant. I pulled out a bit and pushed back in, and it started feeling good again, so I’m really not sure what could have happened there.
Someone mentioned for someone not as large, do you still feel the tongue licks to the head of a cock for example? I’m a bit over 5″ and can quite honestly say that’s a resounding yes, so that’s a plus.
I had a quite wonderful orgasm in RealTouch and to my pleasant surprise it wasn’t uncomfortably intense directly after, as some toys can be. I may have lucked out as it switched to a slower scene, but it really felt pretty great. I won’t say it’s the best orgasm I’ve ever had with a toy, but it was at the upper end of the scale to be sure. Very nice!
Regarding technical issues, I did encounter a media player crash of the RealTouch plugin while trying to jump ahead (by clicking in the tracking bar of the video). So you may have to watch the scenes only from the beginning – I’m not sure? (H_E?) I restarted the computer but later figured out you can probably just load media player again and reenable the Realtouch plugin (tells you how in the directions you get).
Video quality is okay, but not as good as some of the videos on regular AEBN, my guess because you can’t pick different quality streams for your connection (I’m sure this can be added in the future). It’d be nice to see higher resolution or even HD available eventually for people with fast connections. Also, selection is a bit limited at the moment, but I’m sure that’ll eventually improve, and I was able to find several models/clips that I liked.
Re the lube, yes, this thing does make a mess on the default (100%) lube setting. You are going to have lube all over your genitals and chair. I think it’s inevitable. It’s going to go through a lot of lube also, so you might want to stock up if you’re planning to use it often. lol.
Also, I would not recommend overuse of this device. I can see a very real possibility of overuse desensitizing your cock to other softer stimulation. That’s not a negative – just a caution. With the minute per minute fee, this is probably a toy you’ll use as an occasional treat anyway.
Cleaning really isn’t too bad. I’d put it on par with FleshLight – yes, there’s some take apart and messing, but it’s not the end of the world either. Not something you’ll want to do every time you masturbate, but for an occasional intense experience, sure.
Overall, I’m happy I got it, looking forward to using it more and seeing more video content, but will likely keep it as an occasional in the mood toy instead of an every day staple. So it’s not the ultimate kill-all toy, but it is a fantastic toy nonetheless.
WolfpupNX’s Follow Up RealTouch Review :
I’ve used RealTouch some more and have a few more observations:
- Of the sensations experienced, blowjob’s the most realistic, but that’s not to say the others are bad. I haven’t tried tit job or footjob, but I looked at the straight vids for you and both of those categories do exist. =)
- I can tell you from the blowjobs, I saw some scenes where a tongue was teasing the cock (for example, a flick of the tongue on the underside or head), and RealTouch actually prety adeptly copied the motions. One of my favorite parts of the videos in fact. Felt awesome.
- My biggest problem so far has been to get lube to dispense reliably. It seems each time it takes a bit of messing (usually squeezing the bottle into the reservoir and then running warmup again) to get it to start coming out. Once it does start its fine. Hopefully since I’m in my first few uses once the pump is primed this won’t be an issue with regular use. If I keep having problems, I’ll try rinsing it like the directiosn indicate. I suggest everyone using it make sure lube is dispensing properly (you should be able to tell with your finger as well as hear it – there’s a whirring sound [almost reminiscient of a sprinkler] that I noticed that only seems to happen when lube is being dispensed).
- I’m finding I like RealTouch better with each use. Part of this is getting it set up right and lubing right, and part of it is just the learning curve of knowing what to expect. But my last few sessions have been very pleasurable.
- Average time for me using the device to achieve orgasm is around 10 minutes.
- When it is dispensing lube, it eats it like there’s no tomorrow. This is potentially the most annoying thing about the device, and could be a bit costly as well. I’m actually quite surprised just how fast it does use lube up.
- Some members have expressed concern over the noise of the device. I’m in respectful disagreement – I still think this is fairly quiet for an automated sex toy and quieter than I expected, but I’ve used some really loud toys in the past, so that I’m sure alters my perception somewhat – lol.
- Cleaning isn’t difficult at all. It’s not possible to get in all nooks and crannies inside, so I definitely recommend cleaning immediately after use, but it’s quite fast to do, and I think if done immediately should keep it comfortably clean.
- The shell sometimes is a bit tricky to get off and back on, but not terrible.
- I’m still having the issue with not being able to jump ahead in videos – they either hang when I try (and RealTouch stops) or Windows Media Player crashes altogether. At this point, I’m thinking it must be something about my particular configuration since I haven’t seen any other reports like this – a format in the next few months should fix it if that’s the case. Either way, the available videos are short, I can pause and resume just fine, and I can switch videos just fine, so this isn’t a dealbreaker for me – it would just be nice to get working if I want to “finish” a video I didn’t make it all the way through.
- One slight disappointment is video selection currently available, but I’m sure that will improve with time as the device takes off. As it stands, there are maybe a handful of videos that really turn me on (all around 10 minutes) but those will get old eventually.
Overall, at this point I’m fairly pleased with my purchase – moreso than after my first try with the device. It’s actually quite good when you get all your ducks in a row. I suppose I also wasn’t expecting not to run into *any* issues since this is a new device and the first masturbator I know of that uses a similar system (belts, etc.). I don’t know how the average consumer will react, but with a little patience, and as long as it holds up (seems to be so far), I’d say for me this one lives up to the hype.
Captspald’s RealTouch Review (11th October 2009) :
After explaining how this device works to my wife and reassuring her that it isn’t a replacement for sex with her, but a new and exciting technology, I excused myself to my office and prepared to give the device a test run.
Orgasm within 5-6 minutes… ‘Seasoned Players 9, Scene 1 – Chloe’
The sensation was amazing, very realistic in regards to what was happening on screen. From head to handjob to full on sex, each sensation was different and progressed nicely to get me off.
I was so impressed with my first experience that I was ready to give it another go after a few minutes of recovery.
I learned three important lessons on my 2nd run
1. Let the device dry thoroughly before using it a 2nd time
2. Make sure you are fully hard
3. Make sure you put your entire cock in the device
I experienced some abrasion on my shaft, but I attribute it to the first two lessons I mentioned above. I think the water on the belt (I rinsed it off after my 1st run) diluted the lube and not being fully hard is what caused the abrasion. The third lesson was a result of lube leaking out of the end of the device, I was only keeping the head of my cock and a little bit of shaft in the device to get fully hard and I think that caused some issues with lube leaking out.
Overall I am a huge fan of this technology and will continue to enjoy this experience on a regular basis!
