Review of MagmaFilm.com porn site: One of the most popular German porn studios
German porn enjoys a high popularity not only in German-speaking countries.
This is because German women have a very special reputation internationally. Namely, that they are particularly open and willing to experiment when it comes to sex. This is proven by numerous German porn stars who are also quite successful worldwide
And quite a few of the stars are or were under contract with the German production company Magmafilm. As its own slogan Magmafilm has chosen „The makers of the stars“ and in a way this is even true. Among others, Jana Bach, Leonie Saint, Gina Wild, Vivian Schmitt, Aische Pervers, Dolly Buster, Teresa Orlowski, Mandy Mystery, Kelly Trump, Mia Magma / Maria Mia (aka Maria Mia), Sibel Kekilli, Louisa Lamour, Sharon Da Vale and Tyra Misoux have shot for Magma.
Although Magmafilm is based in Essen, Germany, it is now owned by the Swiss company Mascotte Film AG in Zurich. The magmafilm.com site itself, however, is operated by ManicaMedia S.L. from Barcelona, Spain. For the users this has the advantage that the strict German youth protection laws do not apply.
I was especially looking forward to this review, because MAGMA is one of the biggest porn producers in Germany. I know a lot of erotic movies and hoped that you can buy them quasi „first hand“ directly from the producer, without detours via third party providers like DVDerotik
Opinion about the preview area of Magmafilm.com
As always, we start our test with a first tour of the preview area.
When you enter magmafilm.com for the first time, two things catch your eye. First, the large video window in the upper area, in which a preview video is played in an endless loop. The second thing that stands out is that neither the video nor the preview images are censored.
The video window shows some scenes from MAGMAfilm porn. Below that are various previews of scenes and videos available on the site. These are categorized as „Hot Scenes“, „Most Popular Scenes“, „Top Movies“, „Latest Movies“ and „Newest Movies“.
As with most porn sites, you will find yourself quite quickly on the registration form page. However, for some movies you can watch a preview – video. This is a bit confusing, because it is not marked anywhere which videos can be viewed as previews. The potential customer also does not find out exactly how many porn videos are currently available „on demand“.
On the whole, I think the preview area is excellently done. It is easy to use and easy on the eyes.
Rating of the porn sites registration
If you didn’t get to the registration form via one of the videos, it starts with a click on „Register now“. You will get to an English booking page. You can change it to German by clicking a „Language“ button in the upper right corner.
At the rate selection, you can choose between a monthly, 3‑months or half-year membership. I recommend the monthly membership. The two-day trial account is not recommended, because it does not give you full access to the offers of magmafilm.com.
As payment methods credit card, direct debit Paypal or Klarna are given. I find this not very elegantly solved. After all, we are not talking about four payment methods, but four payment billing companies: VENDO, Webbilling, EPOCH, Centrobill. At the same time, these are also the biggest and most well-known billing companies for porn sites.
Clicking on the Paypal logo is the golden choice and will lead you to „EPOCH“, where you can even pay via SOFORTüberweisung, Giropay, via Paypal and anonymously via Paysafecard.
Further down you enter a username, password and email address and click on the green button „Register now“.
Be attentive during your payment!
I decided to pay by credit card. A booking form from the payment service provider VENDO opened up for me. Nice enough, the fields for e‑mail, username, password and country are already filled in. What still needs to be entered is the name and credit card data. Interestingly, VENDO does not ask for an address, which preserves some anonymity.
However, there are also three check marks on the form, two of which are particularly nasty:
- You have to be careful with the checkboxes: „I sign up: 3 days trial at MMV Films“ and „I sign up: 4 days trial at Hustler“. If you do not uncheck these options, you have unintentionally booked two member areas! Such a thing is called hucksterism and in porn jargon „cross-selling“.
With a click on „confirm your purchase“ you land on a white page and see the following booking confirmation: „Thank you for your purchase! You now have access to Magma Film. We have just sent a confirmation email to your email address.“ Also shown are the login details and how the booking will appear anonymously on the account statement.
This then completes the registration process and we can log in to Magmafilm.
Test – Review Member Area
If you enter the member area via https://www.gasm.com/login, a big disillusionment follows first. Because this has visually not much in common with what is presented in the preview area.
You can understand the operation and the structure better if you first click on the „Network“ button at the very top right of the menu bar. A page opens that gives an overview of the Gasm.com network. It says there as text:
STIFFIA / Gasm is a network consisting of the best porn sites in the world! You are now a member of Magmafilm, which is also part of our offer. We reward loyal members with free access to bonus websites and many other extras!
In addition to your subscription to Magmafilm, you now have a STIFFIA profile. You can browse through all Magmafilm videos and photos in your profile and also find many other videos and photos from other studios – for free! For example, if you are a fan of Riley Reid, you can follow her and every time there is a new video from her, it will automatically appear on your profile!
In our eyes, Gasm.com (formerly STIFFIA) is not a porn network or a porn flat rate, as we know it from DDF Network or BRAZZERS, for example. Because every single page requires its own paid access.
The white / black design of the interface is rather reminiscent of a website from 1990. It takes a while to understand the structure of the system.
On the left side you will find a menu divided into „Scenes“, „Movies“, „Photos“, „Girls“ and „Pages“.
- Scenes: The heart of the member area is the scenes section.
Here 1.000 movies of MAGMAfilm are listed. However, these are not complete porn DVDs, but from scenes from over 200 DVDs.
On the left side are some categories, after which the films can be filtered. Several categories can also be linked together. The range goes through the porn scene and starts with A for Anal and ends with V for Voyeur. German porn was promised and for the most part this is also kept. Although there are also some American films among them.
Clicking on one of the scenes takes you to the video window, which is pleasingly large. A modern HTML5 video player is used for playback, which can also play the sex movies on a smartphone or tablet. All control elements like play/stop, timeline and full screen are included.
After all, the scenes can also be downloaded as quality levels Mobile (480), SD (720), HD (1080) and Full HD (1920). The quality of the movies in picture and sound is quite good.
There is also a rating and comment function in the scene detail pages. It is a pity that not all scene descriptions are written in German. However, with a little school English you can roughly understand what it’s all about.
- Movies: Currently 200 DVDs are listed here. The scenes are assigned to them in the form of a DVD cover. You can also go to a DVD detail page, which contains a description, a cast list and a scene listing
- Photos: MAGMA also creates photos parallel to the video shoots. The menu item „Pictures“ gives access to 425 picture sets. So if you’re into photos, you’ve come to the right place. An image viewer allows easy navigation between the porn images. There is no slideshow but you can download the sets and view them on your computer.
- Girls: I find the „Girls“ page very practical, where you can browse for pretty porn actresses. From here you can also access the model profile pages.
- The menu item„Pages“ contains all series that are published under the porn label „Magma“. for example: Street Flirts, Magma swings, City Fucker, Capital Porn, Pecker Bingo. It is more or less a clearer compilation of different categories.
What is offered in terms of content?
Thanks to magmafilm.com, you no longer have to sneak behind the curtain of a video store (as in the past), but can watch the erotic films comfortably on your PC, tablet or smartphone. The video format and resolution automatically adapt to the screen.
Content-wise, the MAGMA porn movies are (as expected!) of very good quality. There are also a few fast paced professional amateur films in the GONZO style.
For the 800 movies, the monthly fee is a joke and you might seriously consider downloading the videos as original instead of sucking pirated movies from YouPorn.
Another advantage is the download option as a „scene“. You also don’t have to buy a whole porn DVD or Blue Ray like you used to, but you can search for scenes you like using the filter functions.
I especially like the fact that profile pages have been created for well-known porn actresses, which can be called up from the scene descriptions. For example, you can search for Sharon Da Vale and find 30 porn videos of her.
Opinions about page layout & design
The page structure is quite okay and you can find your way around relatively quickly.
When you enter the members area of magmafilm.com for the first time, you can’t help but wonder what you have gotten yourself into. The design of the Gasm.com software is a bit too simple for my taste.
It doesn’t get any more unkind than this. A simple white background, in front of which the page elements are placed. This makes it look cheap and anything but appealing.
This is certainly due to the compatibility of mobile devices – but could still be solved better.
Experiences with the subscription cancellation
Unfortunately, it is again the case that the cancellation is made difficult. Neither in the registration form nor in the confirmation mail is the possibility of cancellation pointed out. Only if you look for it in the member area, you will find it.
If you click on „Support for payment problems“ at the very bottom of the website, you will find a collection of questions in English. Click on „Billing Questions“ and you will see a series of questions. One clicks on the question where the name of the payment provider through which one has signed up is mentioned. Here one learns that the cancellation is done through the service provider’s site.
Unfortunately, the email confirmation after the booking does not say with which payment provider one has paid. Here you have to have a good memory. In my case it was VENDO. You can find the link under the question „How do I cancel my Vendo subscription?“
In a form you have to enter your email address and password and click the Google Captcha protection. Surprisingly, one then lands in a clear billing section titled „Your subscriptions“.
After that, one has to click on a red „Cancel“ button. A page opens with the title „Too bad you’re leaving us“ – there you have to select a reason. I choose „I’m just not interested anymore“. Scroll below to a gray box titled „Do you really want to cancel?“ and click the „Cancel Subscription“ button.
A box will appear with the text „You have successfully canceled your subscription“. At the same time, you will receive a confirmation of cancellation by email.
Review verdict & conclusion of the Magmafilm.com test report
My opinion of the erotic site magmafilm.com is mixed. Magmafilm actually owes its place in the upper midfield only to the good porn and its good picture and sound quality. The many pretty, German porn stars are also positive to mention.
Although the preview area still looks very good, one is rather disappointed by the unimaginative design of the Gasm.com software. It also takes some time to understand the system. It’s a pity that such a well-known porn label like MAGMAfilm has the need to foist unfair subscriptions and hide the cancellation during the registration process.
Therefore, my conclusion is: If you don’t mind the design and you are looking for a sex site with high-quality, German-language porn, you can calmly book the site for a month. You will definitely find good erotic movies that justify the price.
However, it remains to be hoped that the web designer of Gasm.com will rethink their online presence in the near future and make it more customer-friendly.Visit Magmafilm.com
