Porn Sites Review: AdultEmpire.com – One of the largest and oldest DVD and Blu-ray stores
Technical progress does not stop at the erotic industry. In the past, every video store had a demarcated area where you could rent porn. Today, in the age of the Internet, video stores are practically threatened with extinction.
For men who would like to rent DVDs for a horny porn evening on the sofa, a painful gap in the offer arose – which cannot be closed by purchasing DVDs or free erotic clips on the net.
Resourceful providers have also recognized this and created websites such as Erotik.com, AdultEmpire, AEBN, Gamelink and Hotmovies. Under the term „Video on Demand“, or „VoD“ for short, you can rent porn virtually – almost like you used to do in the video store on the corner. Translated, this means „video on demand“ – so you pay per film.
Providers like AdultEmpire.com have the big advantage that there are no membership fees. So you only pay if you actually watch the porn as a stream or buy it for download. Most of the time you have the choice to order complete movies in full length or only scenes that interest you. You will not be annoyed by advertisements and you do not have to be afraid of malware or viruses.
According to its own information, AdultEmpire.com is one of the market leaders in the field of porn movies and erotica. The American company has been in existence since 1997, when it marketed the first porn DVD ever produced. Today, its inventory includes more than 55,000 porn DVDs, supplemented with over 200,000 porn scenes, as well as a wide range of sex toys for women, men and couples.
So much praise made me curious. Since I like watching porn myself, I decided to give AdultEmpire.com a test. I also try to compare the Adult VoD providers. I am interested in your opinions and experiences! Please write me a comment below this review.Visit Adultempire.com
Opinion about the preview area of Adultempire.com
The first impression of the preview area is positive. On the homepage, you see a big slider with DVD covers dominating the screen.
Below that you will find smaller photos of numerous poro covers, sorted by new releases, bestsellers, „popular niches“ and popular porn stars. Fortunately, you will hardly be annoyed by advertisements and will always land on exciting subpages.
If you click on the cover of a DVD, you will get to a DVD detail page with a short summary of the content. You can see the release date of the DVD, which actors are featured, which studio shot the movie and the playback quality of the movie. Many of them are in Full HD, some even in 4k (Ultra HD). AdultEmpire.com offers a huge differentiator from other VoD portals: You can watch a free trailer for most movies. The trailers vary in length, from less than a minute to over 2 minutes.
They are uncensored summaries of important scenes. Even screenshots are available, but they can only be viewed and not downloaded. You can search the preview area for movies from many categories, DVDs, VoDs or even porn stars. All the content is available without age verification and without registration.
Overall, I really like the preview area. You can spend several hours there without any effort and browse through the massive offer. The trailers are appetizers, so to speak, that whet your appetite for the members‘ area. The only drawback is the fact that the website is completely in English. The customer service can be reached via an American phone number, e‑mail or chat. Presumably, however, the employees there do not speak German
Rating of the porn site – registration
The registration is very easy and to my surprise, it is done in a short time.
You simply click on the button „Sign in“ on the top right of the homepage. After that, a submenu opens. There you have to click on the link „Create New Account“ and enter your email address and twice the password of your choice
Below the registration form, 2 boxes are already pre-marked. With them you confirm that you want to receive the newsletter of AdultEmpire.com (no problem thanks to GMail account) and that you request an email with which you can watch 15 minutes of VoDs as a welcome gift.
Expectantly I clicked on the blue button „Create Account“ and was automatically logged into the member area
Test – Review Member Area
The view of Adultempire.com after login is not different from the preview area.
After logging in, no surprises await you, because the member area is almost identical to the preview area. At the top you will find a search bar with the terms DVD, On Demand, New Releases, Sales, Categories, Unlimited, Sex Toys and Pornstars.
In each category you can filter your search by certain criteria. The navigation is simple, but it will surely take a while before you find your way around due to the abundance of the offer. New movies are added to the website on a regular basis. The newest movies are less than a week old.
You don’t have to bother with advertising on the website. However, it is noticeable that all texts are in English only and there is no possibility to change this setting. However, you can manage very well with school English.
Registration of a payment method
Since this is a„Video on Demand“ portal, where you have to pay for all offers individually, it is necessary to choose your payment method before ordering a DVD / scene for the first time. You can choose between credit card and „International Payment“. Curious, I chose the latter option.
This opened a submenu of the billing company 2000charge.com with several choices. I chose EuroDebit(direct debit). The form is in German. After entering the payment data you have to enter your password again. After that you can either press a green button to download the movie or a blue one to watch it as a stream. I chose „Download“ and opted for the highest resolution Full HD, 1080 pixels
Important note: If you want to watch or download movies on AdultEmpire.com frequently, I recommend you to pay with a credit card. Thereby the data will be saved. If you pay by direct debit, you have to re-enter the data every time, which is annoying. Prepaid credit cards are accepted.
Quality & impression of the videos
There is no concrete information about the total number of films offered. You would have to take the trouble to add up the scenes and DVDs (movies) in all categories. There are currently, according to AdultEmpire’s own data, over 255,000 erotic movies
Of course I was curious to see how many German porn movies can be found on AdultEmpire.com. In the DVD section there were just 33, in the VoD section there were still 254 movies.
There are four ways how you can order the porn:
- You can either„rent / borrow“ videosfor2 days and watch them in stream as often as you like during that time.
- You can„buy and download to your hard drive“.
- or„buy and watch in stream for life“. In return, the movies will be stored in your account.
- The fourth option is PPM (Pay Per Minute).
The technical quality of the videos varies greatly, but is good on average. Many offers are in Full HD, some even in 4k (Ultra HD). However, while browsing, I also discovered movies from the nineties, whose resolution is naturally worse.
A modern HTML5 media player is used for playback. The streaming movies run flawlessly, both with Windows 10, Apple Macintos or Linux. The movies could also be viewed flawlessly on the smartphone and an Android tablet without jerking and long loading times. Fast-forwarding and rewinding works well, but takes some time.
You can see the resolution on the DVD’s title screen: 720 pixels, 1080 pixels or 4k. Movies without this indication have a lower resolution.
Contents of the porn
The artistic quality of the movies varies as much as the technical quality, of course. So I can’t give a uniform rating for Adultempire. Basically, porn can be grouped into two classes. Each type has its own charms:
- Professional porn, shot by well-known studios such as VIVID, Brazzers or Digital Playground, for example, is professionally produced with experienced porn actors. You can tell that from the films both visually (from props, location (filming location), backdrops and clothing) and from a proper storyline. Also the camera work, lighting and the experienced poses of the actresses make the erotic films though a visual feast for the eyes.
Recently, well-known porn studios shoot not only in HD, but Ultra HD (4k). Well-known porn movies in cinema blockbuster style are often post-synchronized. However, with so much perfectionism, authenticity often suffers and much looks fake and „acted“.
- Amateur footage is shot, for example, in normal apartments, at an orgy in a party cellar, or in a swingers‘ club. As a camera serves a HandyCam, a rickety tripod or even a smartphone. In the amateur porn, however, the „uninhibited approach to the shooting“ and the real feelings and orgasms irritate. Personally, I like the amateur films in gonzo style, where you feel involved as a viewer in the action. As far as porn has any dialogues at all, they are in the original sound.
Primarily English porn
Since Adult Empire is an American „video store“, it is naturally dominated by American movies. Somehow you just know that the few dialogues are in English and that hardly bothers you while watching.
On the other hand, on AdultEmpire.com you can find movies for almost every taste and in every price range. By the way, in most cases they are complete movies with more than 90 minutes longer. Some sex movies consist of compilations and are more than 3 hours long!
How much do the movies cost?
It is quite different and depends on the artistic quality and popularity. You can watch a movie in stream from $3.99, buy it from about $7 or rent it for 2 or 7 days for a similar price.
Popular movies are more expensive, of course. There is also an option to buy only individual scenes at a cheaper price instead of the full movie
Quality of the photos
Actually, I did not expect to find photos on a portal for VoD. I was proven wrong. There are screenshots for every movie.
If you browse the pornstars section, you will find in the gallery for each girl besides a short info and the listing of movies with her that you can watch at AdultEmpire.com
Mostly there are also photo series. Some of them are independent shots, some are screenshots from movies. Sometimes there are also pornographic pictures, which can be very stimulating. However, the photos can only be viewed online and cannot be downloaded.
Opinions about page structure & design
The design of Adultempire.com fits the theme. On the white background, graphics and font stand out well and are clearly visible. The menu is simple and easy to understand.
However, you need at least school knowledge of English to navigate. You don’t have to be fluent in the language, though, as most of the menu items are self-explanatory. With a little time and patience you will find your way around.
You won’t be bothered with ads while surfing. I tested the site on 3 devices, including my Android smartphone. On all devices, the movies ran flawlessly. On the smartphone or tablet, you automatically switch to a version optimized for mobile devices.
Experiences with the subscription cancellation
With this video-on-demand porn portal, you do not pay a monthly fee. Accordingly, you do not need to cancel your membership.
Review verdict & conclusion of the Adultempire.com test report
The VoD porn site AdultEmpire.com is absolutely great! It offers an unimaginable selection and variety with 255,000 porn movies from all over the world.
There is a free trailer for almost every movie. You always know in advance what to expect and don’t have to buy the proverbial pig in a poke. There are both cheap and quite expensive movies. The price is always clearly displayed.
On the negative side, I would like to point out that there are relatively few German movies and that the entire site is only offered in English. Also the prices are displayed in US dollars only.
Overall, however, AdultEmpire.com shows a good price-performance ratio. I can clearly recommend a registration. Through the Pay-Per-View payment you always have the costs under control.Visit Adultempire.com
