Is R18.com Safe?
Yes it is, and surprisingly so.
R18.com is the offshoot of the ultimate Japanese Adult Video (JAV) super site, DMM.com, and is focused on bringing making its entire library easily accessible to people like you and me, the English/Foreigner market.
DMM.com has been around since 1999, and for their fiscal year ending 2014, they had a revenue of about 50 Billion Yen, or approximately US$420,000,000. You can imagine them as the ‘Amazon’ in Japan, with JAV as its core specialty.
For the longest time however, DMM was only focused on the local Japanese market. There is an option to view the site in English, but because it’s based on an automated translation system, the browsing experience for English speakers isn’t great.
R18.com is an attempt by DMM.com to create an online JAV superstore that’s been built from the ground up for the English speaking market. The quality of the English titles and descriptions of the videos makes much more sense. They’ve even included English translated adult manga (comics).
So is R18.com safe? Yes it is, and one might say extremely so.
In fact, it might be the answer to all your JAV cravings from here on out.
