Porn Sites Review: Test of the German porn portal FunDorado.com
Actually, we have almost given up the search for honest and high-quality erotic sites in German! In the 90s, German sex sites were extremely peppered with farmer traps, subscription traps, bullshit and low-quality content. Due to the youth protection amendment in 2002 and the PornTube hype since 2010, numerous good German erotic sites were discontinued for lack of profitability.
But there is one top dog that has proven itself for many years. If you’re interested in „erotica on the Internet“, you’re almost bound to stumble across Fundorado.de. The erotic portal advertises with massive advertising campaigns on television and the Internet (Freenet, Orion or YooFlirt.com and many more), so that one can hardly get around the portal.
Fundorado is a sex site that has won the Venus Award several times. The VENUS AWARD is something like the German porn Oscar. The operator tries to manage the balancing act between youth protection and pornography completely legally and without tricks. On top of that, the project is offered as an erotic flat rate at fair prices.
The first thing we notice on the Fundorado – erotic site are the numerous buttons and texts with the word „Free“. When the two keywords eroticism and free of charge fall, we naturally become alert and critical. Especially since Fundorado is run by a German operator based in Hamburg. What is easily feasible in other European countries and in the USA is actually almost impossible for German website operators. Very strict youth protection regulations stand in the way, which must first be financed and cleverly solved.
In the following test report, we present the erotic portal to you completely neutrally and independently. We write you our experiences and our honest opinions. As you are used to from Erotikseitentest.com, we do not only go into the advantages but also into the disadvantages. We hope that you will like our review and that you will not have to buy a pig in a poke.Visit FunDorado.com
Opinion about the preview area of FunDorado.com
After entering the internet address, you will land on a censored preview page. Since Fundorado is a German offer, you can’t expect explicit porn images thanks to the strict German youth protection law.
The upper part is taken up by a slideshow, in which the individual sections of Fundorado are presented one by one with sample images and short advertising texts. If you scroll down the page, you will be presented with short texts and graphics.
Clicking on one of the images or texts takes you to a registration form. An exception is the menu at the top. If you click on one of the links here, you get a deeper insight into the porn project. On the right, there is a large advertising banner that draws attention to a flat rate for 0 Euros
At the bottom of the porn page there are various links to legal content, such as imprint, data protection and others, which every German website must fulfill.
The preview area corresponds so far to the standard of the industry and contains, however, nothing out of the ordinary. But somehow, it is not really 100% possible to imagine what Fundorado is exactly.
Rating of the porn sites registration
You can sign up by clicking on one of the pictures – or on the top-right of the homepage by clicking on the button „Become a member“.
At the beginning of the registration, you have to choose a username and a password. After that, some personal details such as first and last name, country and date of birth have to be entered. In addition to Germany, Austria and Switzerland are also available for selection.
Below that comes the selection of packages and here it turns out that free just is not equal to free. Fundorado costs a monthly fee!
There are three regular packages
- Basic for 19.95 EUR monthly
- Gold for 12,95 EUR monthly
- Platinum (9,95 EUR monthly) with different functionalities.
Based on the chosen tariff, the monthly price is reduced. It’s worth taking your time to read the fine print. And beware: The Platinum tariff is preselected and is charged at 238.80 EUR! It offers complete access to all areas of Fundorado.
In addition, one finds also a trial tariff (named Schnupper), which costs otherwise 4.95 EUR and here as advertisement evenly for the „free“ entrance must hold out. With this rate, you get a three-week trial access, which corresponds to the basic rate. The catch is that the rate must be canceled within the first seven days. Otherwise, it will be transferred to the basic rate for which a charge is made.
Below this is a field in which you can enter a voucher code to receive an additional discount.
In the next field, you can select the payment method. You can choose between direct debit and credit card. If you select the direct debit payment method, various fields will open for you to enter your account details. Once you have completed this point, you can finish the order by clicking on „Complete registration with costs“.
If you choose „Credit card“ as a payment option, you have to click on the „Next“ button to enter the credit card data on the second page.
Once the registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation email with all the relevant data. Now you can already log in, but you don’t get to see any content yet! Now the identity check, which is obligatory in Germany, must be completed.
Age verification at Fundorado:
Despite paying, you can’t get around the parental control check and it reads: „You have successfully logged in. In order to be able to use all content, please quickly confirm that you are of age. There are various options available to you for this purpose.„
If you click on the inconspicuous link „Identity Check“, a pop-up window opens for a Schufa query. If you don’t want more data to be collected about you than is already the case, you should consider one of the alternative options. One clicks on the link „NO LUST“.
This opens a page „Do the age check here“. The alternatives offered are Postident, X‑Check, existing customer or a webcam check. We have chosen the webcam check, because it is the fastest of the available options
To do this, you turn on the webcam and start a new chat. An employee of Fundorado asked us to hold the front and back of the ID card in front of the camera and a few seconds later the access was activated.
Test – Review Member area
After the somewhat awkward registration process, we finally found ourselves in the member area and started to explore. In the upper part we find the menu bar already known from the preview area. For us, the menu items Live Cams, Community, Videos, Pictures and Private are enabled. In addition, there are menu items for Reality, Extras and 1:1 Cam.
The large area below is framed by ads from the partner network and changes its content depending on the menu item selected.
The live cams are displayed unsorted. The only clue about the quality you get from the ratings under the pictures. If you click on a thumbnail, the corresponding page is called to interact with the lady.
The women are mostly pretty to very pretty. The age seems to be between 19 to 40. Of course, there are outliers up and down in terms of appearance and age.
The transmission quality is quite good and the images also arrive quickly without any judder.
The community section is a bit cluttered for my taste and looks a bit like it was added later. This is also indicated by the fact that a new window opens.
Here you can find a number of other videos of various women. We cannot say whether these are actually users. However, the picture and sound quality is partly not the best, so we do not want to exclude it.
The video library left a split impression. There are many, many films. But the quality is very variable. This applies to both the quality of the picture and the sound as well as the quality of the actors and actresses. After all, there are some highlights to be found in the video store, in addition to many cheap productions.
Our subjective impression is also supported by the user ratings. Many porn movies have received only 3 out of 5 stars.
A modern HTML5 player is used as the video player, which is also compatible with mobile devices. Unfortunately, it is not possible to download the movies. However, the movies can be saved via a screen capture software such as CamStudio. However, since the film or scene must be played back completely, it is a time-consuming way. The Firefox browser plugin Ant Video Downloader does not work.
Above the preview images are some buttons, with which the films can be sorted, among other things, according to the newest or best rated. In addition, the categories can be selected here or a selection can be made according to production companies.
A special highlight is hidden behind the Pornstars button. If you open this button, you will find a whole series of names that read like a Who’s Who of the international porn scene.
The „Pictures“ section contains, as the name suggests, various picture galleries. Unfortunately, the division is not as comfortable as in the video library. There is only a list on the left, with which the picture series can be roughly narrowed down and under which keywords the series names are listed.
The series are exclusively glossy productions, which you can also see that it took some effort to record them.
Some videos can also be found here, whereby the quality is also very fluctuating. The special feature here is that the films are played in scenes one after the other. Unfortunately, there is no option to jump directly to a scene.
You can see from the models that they are at least not professional actresses. And the quality of the picture and sound is also very variable here.
The porn industry doesn’t stop at reality series either. However, the basic tariff does not allow access to this area. You only get to see a short clip of the relatively few scenes. After that, the screen changes and prompts you to charge for a user account.
Of course, there is no need to mention that these are not really real-life stories.
Opinions on page layout & design
The design takes a little getting used to. Fundorado advertises itself with the subtitle „The horny purple“, but I personally find the color scheme a bit annoying. But that is certainly a matter of taste.
On the positive side, the page layout remains the same in most categories. Only when you switch to the community area, a new window opens. And here the layout is a bit confusing.
What is really annoying is that the right mouse button is locked, which restricts the operation somewhat.
The online sex portal offers an enormous range of features, but the navigation structure suffers tremendously. As a newcomer, you have to get used to the interface for a good 10 minutes to get to your desired destinations.
Surprisingly, the current layout conforms to the smartphone and tablet-friendly „Responsive Design“. Playing the movies is possible on the iPad without any problems.
Experience with subscription cancellation
Although Fundorado has done many things right, there is now a point deduction for the cancellation. Despite intensive search, we found neither in the confirmation email, nor on the Fundorado pages the possibility for a cancellation.
The option to cancel we found then rather by chance after we clicked on the menu item „Service & Help“. Here, various questions about Fundorado should actually be clarified, but the menu item „My membership“ brings you a bit closer to the cancellation.
Among the questions now displayed is the question, „How can I cancel my membership“. If one clicks on it, a text is indicated, which among other things, also the link „individual notice code provide“. After clicking on it, one is redirected to a page that is supposed to discourage one from canceling again. Once you have made up your mind, you have to click on the button with the descriptive title „Mir ist nicht mehr zu helfen“ („I can’t be helped“).
An input form opens, where you should enter your username and password. After confirming it, a page opens where you should specify your reason for cancellation. We choose: „I am satisfied, but I want to pay my regular fees“. Now we are offered to chat with a support representative. But we click on „Thanks for the info, but this is not interesting for me“.
One must know exactly „how“ to cancel
On the following page one has to confirm 5 checkboxes that one is aware that one loses all paid „reality episodes“, one’s „bonus“, one’s bookmarked content, one’s friends lists and that one is soon a „silver member“. Somewhat annoyed, you then click on „I am aware of the consequences and agree“.
And now comes the kicker! On the following page it says: „Send us your letter of cancellation by mail“. One finds after the following information
If you no longer wish to be a member, please send your notice of cancellation in accordance with our Terms and Conditions with the following data: XXXX by mail to this address: XXXX An e‑mail is not sufficient for this purpose.
Below you will find two buttons „to print version“ „I’m not crazy – I want to stay.“
You should seriously print out the form, put it in an envelope, stick a stamp on it, write an address on it and drive to the post office?!?!
Of course, this is a sheer mockery! You can do everything online: sign up, pay, Schufa check, webcam age verification, chat, watch porn and who knows, but you have to cancel offline?
The thought arises whether they are intentionally trying to drag out the one-month cancellation period so that you stay a month longer.
Review verdict & conclusion of the FunDorado.com test report
Fundorado is definitely one of the largest and most comprehensive porn sites in the German-speaking world! Several thousand porn movies of all genres are offered for a really cheap monthly flat rate (in the sense of a flat rate).
Fortunately, these are mainly German porn movies from well-known German porn labels. Thus, you can also find almost all German porn stars! Absolutely praiseworthy are the in-house, German-language reality series (partly in HD quality), which, however, cost extra money.
Surprisingly, numerous webcams and livecam chats with really beautiful girls are completely included in the price. The community function is also exciting.
Although the registration is relatively easy, the necessary age check slows down the initial euphoria considerably. Nevertheless, the implementation of German youth protection laws is well thought out and can be overcome by the uncomplicated SCHUFA query or the webcam check. However, the potential new customer should be prepared for the fact that the activation can take a little longer when booking.
The ultimate sex site for German porn
The site itself is by and large well structured, although it could sometimes be a bit clearer. This is due to the extremely large scope of services that the developers had to somehow reconcile.
The picture and video quality is very fluctuating. What we miss in 2014 is porn in HD quality. American and Dutch porn portals can do that much better!
We do not like the hidden cancellation option at all and that the customer is deprived of the possibility to download movies and pictures by all technical means.
All in all, Fundorado offers a lot for the money. In our opinion, it is finally a porn site where it is worth being a member for several months. If you like German and varied erotic movies, Fundorado’s porn flatrate is really very good for you!Visit FunDorado.com
