PornHub Review

 

Intro

No matter what you’re looking for, you’re going to find it at PornHub. This site not only provides a huge selection of videos, but also hosts user videos, runs a blog, has user contests, allows porn stars to set up fan pages, hosts live webcam shows, hosts user profile pages, and much, much more. This feature-rich site is definitely one you don’t want to miss.

And best of all, you can access almost all of these features anonymously or with a free account. PornHub does offer benefits for paid membership…but we’ll get to that in a moment.

Content Review

Founded in 2007, PornHub is an institution, an island of stability among here-today, gone-tomorrow sites. PornHub has lots of bells and whistles, but at its heart it’s all about the porn. None of the rest would matter if PornHub failed at its main mission of delivering tons of smoking hot videos.

The site surely delivers. A PornHub blog post reports that there were 23 billion visits to the site during 2016. The company’s servers delivered 4.6 billion hours of porn to site visitors – 99 gigabytes of data every second of the day, 24/7.

PornHub hosts more than 5 million videos and has 75 million visitors every day. Those visitors have access to a huge selection of top porn videos that they can search and filter according to hundreds of keywords. Whether you’re interested in Milfs, lesbian scissoring, teens, double penetration, or threesomes, PornHub will deliver hundreds of hot videos with a single click of the mouse. Interested in a particular video production company or porn star? It’s just as easy. A click or two gets you just what you’re looking for.

The site’s navigation system lets you click through to top-rated videos, new videos, HD videos, featured videos, longest videos…a whole range of options. This site has tons of options but the layout is clear and it’s easy to find the content you want. You can also combine filters and search terms for complex searches. You want amateur lesbian babysitter videos that are at least 20 minutes long? Piece of cake. PornHub makes it easy.

PornHub is all about high-quality video. The site is actively upgrading its library to 1080p as quickly as it can, and most of its content is 720p or higher. The company’s huge array of servers deliver content without lagging or long waits for buffers to load.

In addition to HD content, PornHub is pioneering virtual reality porn. The site offers free access to thousands of VR videos compatible with the most popular virtual reality hardware. If you’re looking to make your porn experience as real as possible, VR is the way to go.

In addition to commercial porn videos, PornHub encourages individuals to upload their own amateur videos. The site is host to a large community of amateurs who publish sexy pics and videos. They use the site as a kind of X-rated version of YouTube, building audiences and communicating with fans. Many of these amateurs have tens of thousands of followers.

Some amateurs decide to commercialize their PornHub membership. The site allows performers – it calls them “models” – to open an account that lets them collect a percentage of the ad revenue from videos of themselves. The site even includes advice on how to gain followers and promote new video uploads on Twitter and other social media.

Free registration lets you set up a profile page, build playlists, and take advantage of PornHub’s “recommended” feature, which keeps track of your viewing habits and identifies new videos you might be interested in. It gives you a Download button for making copies of videos you like. Registration also gives you membership in the PornHub community, a social networking platform that is a kind of Facebook for porn viewers and makers. The community site gives you a newsfeed, the opportunity to follow or friend other users, and upload photos or videos. It’s clear that PornHub sees social networking as part of its future.

PornHub maintains a Sexual Wellness Center focused on keeping members safe from sexually transmitted diseases. It funds charities. It has live webcams with camgirls who perform favors for tips. The site’s blog announces site statistics, trivia, porn star interviews, and occasional special events. It even has a store that sells t-shirts and baseball caps with the PornHub logo.

Interested in accessing porn on your phone or tablet? PornHub’s got you covered. The site’s features are all accessible on mobile devices, and it offers a free Android app to simplify access to videos and other services.

Pricing

PornHub’s paid membership option is $9.99 per month. That drops to $7.99 per month if you’re willing to pay for a whole year upfront with a single charge.

In return for your money you get no ads and premium content, including more HD videos and more VR videos. You also get special badges and other status markers in the PornHub community.

Premium content includes access to more than 100,000 full-length premium videos from producers like Brazzers, Digital Playground, Backroom Casting Couch, Net Video Girls, Mofos, Girls Do Porn, and other studios. Plus, paid members get streaming access to more than 30,000 porn DVDs.

Pros

Millions of porn videos in every conceivable genre, including lots of HD and HD+ offerings
Combinable searches and keyword filters make it easy to zero in on exactly the videos you want
Free membership lets you save playlists and favorites, and it gives you access to the PornHub community
Lots of extras, including the blog, the store, the community, photo galleries, live webcam chat, and more

Conclusion

PornHub is more than a porn site. Yes, it has millions of hot videos, but that’s just the beginning. This site encourages you to come back again and again with extra features like live chat, the community, user videos, and much more. Free registration takes only a minute or two and it opens the doors to all these features.

PornHub is the sponsor of the “PornHub Network,” a collection of porn sites that share content and links to each other. Most of these sites are owned by PornHub’s parent company, but some aren’t. The site even includes instructions for embedding 100 percent of its videos on your own site, for free – even if you run ads next to the videos and make money from them. You can make even more if you include links back to PornHub.

This networking is more evidence of PornHub’s ambition to be a comprehensive service provider to the porn community. PornHub is not only one of the most ambitious and successful porn sites in today’s world, but it is poised to be an even bigger player in the future.
