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.

Adult Empire - Adult Porn VoD - Video on demand

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.

Porn Video on Demand - VoD

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.

Bester Pornofilm: Cleopatra

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.

12000 Pornostars

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.

Bei Adultempire - Porno DVD kaufen

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.
