YouPorn

YouPorn.com is a Tube site that launched in 2006. It was one of the first of its kind, and somewhat skates by on it’s reputation and history. YouPorn.com is one of the 100 most accessed websites in the world. At one point, it was the most popular porn website in the world. It has since fallen in the ranks due to an influx of competitors, but it remains a sort of Tube site classic. Like other members of the top names in Adult Video Streaming, YouPorn.com has been acquired by PornHub and is now part of the PornHub Network. Commentary on how the PornHub Network has affected the direction of the site will not be made in this review. Suffice to say: there are different managers and directors working on each PornHub Network site, even if they share most of the same traits and features.

YouPorn.com – like most Tube sites – focuses on short adult videos that can be freely accessed by any user. As well, YouPorn.com has a Premium option. YouPorn.com Premium (which offers a 7 day free trial) allows you to browse the website and view videos without ads, watch in 1080p, and view full length videos ($9.99/month). However, most users will be browsing YouPorn.com for free, and likely without an account.

A note on accounts: there is also a free account (one that can be used on any PornHub Network site) that allows YouPorn.com users to bookmark videos, receive customized recommendations, download videos, create collections of videos, and upload their own videos. This allows for the users of YouPorn.com to provide content for each other, and create a sense of community if so desired.

The interface on YouPorn.com is easy and doesn’t make you search for much. It’s easy to switch the language on any page. (Options including: German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese (both Brazil and Portugal Portuguese) Russian, Turkish, and Japanese.) It’s fairly easy to find almost anything you would want, especially with the search function right there. The tagging system is incredibly helpful in this respect, though it would better to have a section with a full list of tags, somewhere. On the topic of finding things: I would say YouPorn.com’s weakest feature in comparison to other top Tube sites is the way that female-gaze-friendly porn and gay male porn is hidden away as small categories, instead of as a choice on the homepage. However, the core demographic for users is likely heterosexual males and this will not affect their experience.

There is also a thriving Live Cam section, which boasts a large selection of female (“Girls”) and male (“Guys”) cam artists. Though the Girls outnumber the Guys 10 to 1, neither section is small and there is certainly variety to be had.

Browsing can be done in several ways on YouPorn.com. By Recommended, Top Rated, Most Viewed, Most Favorited, Most Discussed, Collections, Random Video, Categories (i.e. Anal, DP, Female Friendly, Straight Sex, etc), Most Popular in certain countries, Pornstars, and the Search function.

There is a robust rating system on YouPorn.com – both for individual videos, cam-artists, and for Pornstars. Part of what makes these streaming sites usable is the fact that rating allows for easy sorting. As well, since the site doesn’t require membership in order to rate, it allows for a wider range of voters and more reliable rating system.

A significant portion of the videos are homemade/amateur, which helps give unique content, as well as a nice variety of porn styles – ranging from solo to some more extreme kinkplay.

Overall, there isn’t much to set YouPorn.com apart from its competitors. It is simply a decent, fairly generic, easy to use porn website. It is almost the quintessential porn site – in that nothing is particularly offensive or outlandish, but it is not very inclusive for niche tastes or even just people who aren’t heterosexual males. The interface is clean, the variety of common porn tropes and amateur vids is decent, most sections of the website are easy to find – there’s not much to critique about YouPorn.com. It knows its audience and it delivers. The only things that could make YouPorn.com ‘better’ would likely be taking away from its usability for its core demographic.
