Review of JoyBear.com sex site: couples porn with feature film character

Most sites in the ero­tic indus­try focus on ama­teur or gonzo movies, i.e. quick­ly shot clips wit­hout a dis­cer­ni­ble plot. Joybear.com takes a com­ple­te­ly dif­fe­rent approach here.

Joybear Review

The British com­pa­ny Joybear Pictures, which is behind the web­site of the same name, was foun­ded in 2003 by direc­tor Justin Ribeiro dos Santos 

The aim of joybear.com is to offer a high-quality alter­na­ti­ve to chea­p­ly made sex films 

According to its own adver­ti­sing, it wants to offer users „ero­tic films for him and her“ or, to put it ano­ther way, ero­tic films with a sto­ry­line that should also plea­se fema­le partners.

With this self-advertisement joybear.com hangs our expec­ta­ti­ons very high and we were curious to see if this claim would be ful­fil­led. After all, you get to see enough badly made movies on the net that are con­sis­t­ent­ly tou­ted as high­ly ero­tic and yet serve the same cheap porn cliché.

Opinion about the preview section of JoyBear.com

The pre­view sec­tion is divi­ded into seve­ral sec­tions, of which the pre­view images of the clips take up the most space, as is cus­to­ma­ry in the indus­try. In addi­ti­on, an over­view of the most popu­lar feature-length films as well as the actors and actres­ses is offe­red. Of cour­se, a litt­le self-promotion should not be miss­ing. However, this is plea­sant­ly res­trai­ned and never intrusive.

Already the pre­view pic­tures are very ero­tic and expres­si­ve wit­hout beco­ming por­no­gra­phic. They main­ly go in the direc­tion of soft porn, wit­hout going into too much detail. A litt­le tip on the side: For each of the clips there are four thumb­nails available, which can be view­ed by hol­ding the mouse poin­ter over an image and moving it to the right or left.

If you click on one of the sty­li­zed pos­ters for the feature-length films, you can watch an appro­xi­m­ate­ly one-minute trai­ler for the respec­ti­ve film. For the most part, these can­not keep up with the ero­tic depic­tions of the pre­view images, but focus pri­ma­ri­ly on the actres­ses and the plot.

Rating porn sites registration

Naturally, you will be redi­rec­ted to a regis­tra­ti­on form from various places on the home­page – after all, joybear.com is a paid offer. No unfair means are used here eit­her. It is always cle­ar­ly visi­ble when one is redi­rec­ted to the regis­tra­ti­on. The fas­test way to make a boo­king is to click on the „Sign Up“ but­ton on the home page.

According to infor­ma­ti­on on the web­site, bil­ling is hand­led by one of the fol­lo­wing ser­vice pro­vi­ders: Manica Media SL, Vendo, Webbiling, Epoch or CommerceGate. However, there is one small draw­back: unfort­u­na­te­ly, it is not clear exact­ly which pro­vi­der is used for billing

Once you have been direc­ted from the pre­view area to the regis­tra­ti­on form, ever­y­thing else can be done on one page. So you don’t have to endu­re a regis­tra­ti­on pro­ce­du­re over seve­ral pages, which we find very comfortable.

To regis­ter, you need to enter a user­na­me, pass­word and e‑mail address. Next, you sel­ect the bil­ling method, unfort­u­na­te­ly only the cre­dit card pay­ment method is available here, enter the appro­pria­te data and sel­ect a bil­ling peri­od. After con­fir­ming the terms and con­di­ti­ons, you only need to click on the but­ton „Register now“ and you will recei­ve a con­fir­ma­ti­on of the suc­cessful transaction.

We used a pre­paid cre­dit card for the regis­tra­ti­on, which is accept­ed wit­hout any pro­blems. The bil­ling peri­ods can be sel­ec­ted bet­ween month­ly, quar­ter­ly and annu­al­ly. However, you should keep in mind that the month­ly and quar­ter­ly sub­scrip­ti­ons are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly rene­wed if you do not can­cel them.

The mem­ber area can be acces­sed via the but­ton „Members“ on the start page.

Test – Review Member Area

The first thing you noti­ce when ente­ring the mem­ber area is the some­what spar­tan design. After the suc­cessful impres­si­on of the pre­view area, the pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the vide­os is a bit dis­ap­poin­ting. There is not much left of the noble ambi­ence of the pre­view area.

The cate­go­ry list in the upper part, below that a sel­ec­tion of the best sce­nes and the latest movies – tha­t’s all there is here. At least the pre­views can be swit­ched accor­ding to newest releases, hig­hest rated and most view­ed vide­os. You also look in vain for a menu to chan­ge the lan­guage. The site con­sis­t­ent­ly reli­es on English and does not offer any other lan­guage. But you can mana­ge very well even wit­hout English knowledge.

What is real­ly dis­tur­bing are the some­ti­mes very long loa­ding times when cal­ling up pages. It seems that not the fas­test ser­vers are working in the back­ground, becau­se the loa­ding times were equal­ly long on com­pu­ter and tablet.

By the way, every time you log in, you have to enter a captcha code in addi­ti­on to your user­na­me and pass­word. This is sup­po­sed to pre­vent unaut­ho­ri­zed access attempts but is a bit annoy­ing in the long run.

Evaluation of JoyBear.com video quality

What stands out is the small num­ber of available movies com­pared to other sites of this kind. The reason for this is that Joybear pro­du­ces the films its­elf and does wit­hout purcha­sed content.

If you click on one of the vide­os, you will get to the respec­ti­ve detail page, where the play­back qua­li­ty and some infor­ma­ti­on about the actors and the length of the clip are given. In the case of long films, there is also a short sum­ma­ry of the story as well as a list of sexu­al acti­vi­ties that are shown in the film.

As a rule, the films are available in SD Low, SD High, HD and Full HD 1080p qua­li­ty levels. But unfort­u­na­te­ly, there is again a small thing to com­plain about here, becau­se the qua­li­ty levels are not con­sis­t­ent­ly appli­ed to every movie. So it may well hap­pen that a movie is only available in low resolution.

You’ll also find a down­load but­ton that allows you to down­load the movies. Here, too, there are seve­ral qua­li­ty levels to choo­se from. Among others, one espe­ci­al­ly for mobi­le devices.

Test verdict on the video content

But now we final­ly come to what we are test­ing the site for – the con­tent of the movies. Even though joybear.com has some minor weak­ne­s­ses, you can make up for quite a bit with the movies.

We have rare­ly seen a coll­ec­tion of such attrac­ti­ve women as on joybear.com. You obvious­ly put a great empha­sis on the appearance of the fema­le models. And above all, you visi­bly enjoy having sex in front of the camera 

Exaggerated actions can be found rather rare­ly and most of it remains in a lustful frame. You have a bit of a fee­ling of being invi­ted by your neigh­bor to watch her have sex.

Many female sex fantasies are fulfilled

Of cour­se, it’s hard to esti­ma­te how the films are dis­tri­bu­ted among the indi­vi­du­al cate­go­ries. But you can rough­ly say fifty per­cent 1 on 1 sex sce­nes, twen­ty per­cent three­so­mes with two women and a man, twen­ty per­cent les­bi­an play and the rest is accoun­ted for by other sex sce­nes like a bit of bon­da­ge or foursomes.

The sex bet­ween the cou­ples is very appe­al­ingly desi­gned and you can cle­ar­ly see that the women and men are having fun 

However, this is sur­pas­sed by the sce­nes where two women get to play with each other, whe­ther that be three­so­mes or les­bi­an play. The women real­ly spoil each other and not just play­ed as in many other productions.

For the movies joybear.com right­ly gets full marks: and the pre­di­ca­tes very ero­tic, very appe­al­ing and above all extre­me­ly stimulating.

Opinions on page layout & design

On the pre­view pages, the design is appe­al­ing, but unfort­u­na­te­ly not as much effort has been put into the mem­ber area. The struc­tu­re is very simi­lar to the pre­view area, but it is a bit loveless.

But at least the design is cle­an­ly pro­grammed and ever­y­thing is where you expect it. However, the search is in need of impro­ve­ment. If you enter a term there, it seems to search for sug­ges­ti­ons for a while, but in the end it opens a sepa­ra­te search page that has not­hing to do with the search term 

On this page, you can then per­form a new search, which usual­ly leads to par­ti­al suc­cess. Provided that the films are pro­per­ly cate­go­ri­zed, which is not always the case.

Experiences with subscription cancellation

Actually, we are used to the fact that these sites make a can­cel­la­ti­on as dif­fi­cult as pos­si­ble. Often the but­ton to can­cel is alre­a­dy very dif­fi­cult to find. At least in this point joybear.com is an excep­ti­on. In order to can­cel your mem­ber­ship, you will find a link at the very bot­tom, which is labe­led „Cancel your Membership“.

Clicking on this but­ton takes you to a page where you enter your user­na­me and pass­word. With one click you will be redi­rec­ted to a second page, where you con­firm the can­cel­la­ti­on once again with one click. A third page informs about the suc­cessful can­cel­la­ti­on. Very simp­le and, above all, very fair.

Test verdict & conclusion of the JoyBear.com test report

The test ver­dict of joybear.com is very posi­ti­ve despi­te minor weaknesses 

With joybear.com, wat­ching porn is also fun with your part­ner. The porn is sti­mu­la­ting wit­hout being too extre­me or bor­ing. They are offe­red in high-definition HD qua­li­ty for strea­ming and down­loa­ding. Mobile Apple and Android end devices, but also WLAN strea­ming via Google Chromecast to the bed­room smart TV are fully supported.

The male porn actors are aes­the­ti­cal­ly plea­sing and the actres­ses are pret­ty as a pic­tu­re. The loca­ti­ons, cos­tu­mes and props can also be cal­led very professional.

What could be cri­ti­ci­zed is the search func­tion. The sel­ec­tion of movies could also be lar­ger. The loa­ding speed of the strea­ming play­er should be optimized.

All in all, this porn site is an excel­lent source of nice porn fea­ture films
