Porn Mega Site Review: Test Report of One of the Best Porn Labels in the World – Vivid
There are some companies in the porn industry that you just can’t get past. Be it because they are particularly well known (e.g. HUSTLER, PRIVATE, BRAZZERS), because they have a certain specialty(My Dirty Hobby) or because they publish high-quality porn productions.
Among the latter, besides WICKED and Digital Playground, the porn label „VIVID“ should be mentioned. The studio is especially known for high-quality sex films in the feature film character. Thus, the production costs per film of 50,000 to 300,000 dollars are significantly higher than those of other porn producers. In addition, Vivid.com focuses more than most other companies in the porn industry on porn movies with a plot.
What sounds boring at first, however, has a big advantage: especially women can’t do much with the usual stringing together of various fuck scenes. Porn movies with a storyline have a much higher chance of having an erotic video night together. Very cool are also the porn parodies, in which well-known cinema blockbusters were re-enacted.
In my opinion, vivid.com is one of the porn sites that you simply „must“ know. This was the reason that I decided to subject this porn site to a detailed test. As usual, in my review I will not only go into the advantages, but also into the downsides. Please take a few seconds and leave a comment below this review. Your opinion and experiences are always very important to other readers.Visit Vivid.com
Opinion About the Preview Area of Vivid.com
If you surf vivid.com for the first time, you will immediately notice that all pictures are uncensored, even if you are not a member. The porn label VIVID is located in the USA, where there are no youth protection regulations like in Germany.
The company Vivid Entertainment Group was founded back in 1984 and is now considered the market leader when it comes to porn videos and DVDs. In addition, the distribution of Blu-rays is becoming increasingly important at VIVID. Probably one of the biggest features is that Vivid is traded on the stock exchange. So if you want, you can „buy“ a piece of the company.
The layout of the home page largely follows the usual standard. This means that you will find a menu at the top and various preview images from the individual categories underneath.
Surprisingly, you can explore the preview area relatively freely. No matter if you click the menu items for movies, picture galleries, categories or the overview of the actresses – every area can be accessed.
If you click into the video section, you will see a list of all available movies with a preview image. By default, the new movies are always displayed first. Alternatively, the order can also be arranged according to the most popular videos or simply alphabetically.
Another click on one of the thumbnails will take you to the details page. Besides some information about the movie, you can also find a preview video of the respective movie with a length of about one minute. However, you can only watch one preview per hour.
Also in the other menu items you can look around quite freely. In the picture galleries you can also click to the detail pages. Here one is presented then in each case twelve preview – pictures. There is no time limit on how many galleries you can call up in the preview.
Rating of the Porn Sites Registration
I start the registration with a click on the top right on the button „Instant Access“. A form of the payment service VENDOR opens, which is very clearly arranged. If you prefer German as language, you can set this in the form on the top right.
- An e‑mail address, a user name and a password must be entered. Then one selects a membership. We recommend to choose a 30-day membership right away. Experience has shown that shorter trial memberships are not much use. These are usually very limited in the scope of services and in the end you still book the 30-day membership.
This has two advantages: Your normal mailbox will not be cluttered with unwanted promotional emails. And the second advantage is that your partner will not accidentally discover which sites you are registered on.
You can read more about this in our guide articles “ Beware of rip-offs“ and “ Safe payment for porn sites „.
Watch Out in the Booking Form!
- After I have filled in all the required fields, I click on „Register now“. Another page opens where you can select the payment method. For Europeans, the payment methods VISA, Mastercard, Direct Debit (debit) and SOFORTüberweisung are useful.
- ATTENTION: Unfortunately, vivid.com also practices the unspeakable method of „selling“ additional subscriptions „from behind“. If you have chosen a payment method, you should scroll to the bottom and check if there are check marks at www.bang.com and www.realitygang.com (called cross-selling). If so, remove them by clicking on them.
- After this is done, it’s time to fill in the input fields, which vary depending on the payment method. I choose SOFORTüberweisung to be protected from unauthorized account access. It is also safe to pay with a PREPAID credit card.
- If the payment was successful, you get to a page with the title „Thank you for your purchase!“. There, the name of the offer (in this case „Vivid“), a screenshot of the page, the access data, the payment data, an order number, the price and a note about the subscription are clearly listed.
Unfortunately, the booking confirmation does not explicitly state how and where to cancel an account.
Before you carelessly close the page, you should check whether you have received an e‑mail with your access data. Sometimes mails from porn providers are moved directly to the spam box or trash. Do not forget to check there as well. If you haven’t received any mail, just print out the web page or take a screenshot or a picture of the page with your smartphone.
Test – Review Member Area
If you have finished the registration, you can log in directly. The start page looks like you would expect from the preview – area. Unfortunately, a pop-up appears immediately, which refers to other offers from Vivid. However, that and a large banner on the home page are the only promotions that stand out.
For the sake of clarity, I’ll just go through all the menu items in detail. Since most will probably be interested in the videos, these will also take up the most space.
For each movie you get some basic information, like actresses, length or when the movie was uploaded. You will also find a short description of the content and in which categories the film was classified.
The Flash player is not used, but a modern player based on HTML 5. The basic functions such as play, forward and rewind or volume control are also available. Furthermore, the quality of the movie can be adjusted.
This is quite different for the mass of videos. Newer movies are presented as HD video with 1080p. Some are also available in 720p or, for mobile use, playable in SD.
Very Horny and at the Same Time High Quality Porn Videos
Downloading the videos is also possible, but the solution is a bit complicated. If you have found a film that you want to download to your hard drive, you must first click on the arrow to the right of the heart below the video – area. The player will now switch to full screen mode, but a download will still not take place.
In order to download the video, you have to click with the right mouse button on the image and in the menu that opens, click „Save video as …“. The usual dialog for saving files appears. This can look different depending on the operating system. In this dialog you can choose the location where you want to save the video and give it a new name. Then click on Save.
However, it is disturbing that you can’t get back to the overview directly. For this you have to use the „Back“ button of the browser. Unfortunately, the filtering often disappeared, so I had to go through the list again.
With Vivid the Page Structure Is Sometimes a Bit Confusing
Galleries: As the name says, this is where the picture galleries are hidden. These are treated a bit stepmotherly. A description is just as little to find, as a viewer. So you have to call up each photo individually. In addition, the number of pictures is limited to a maximum of 30.
Categories and Pornstars: These two menu items are responsible for sorting. And largely self-explanatory.
Celebs: This menu item is a special feature of vivid.com. Celebs is the abbreviation for Celebritys. In German you would probably just say celebs. Most of the names are either celebrities who have some name recognition only in the United States or porn actress who are celebrities outside the industry.
Some (maybe) involuntary actresses are also known in our country. So names like Jimi Hendrix, Pamela Anderson or Kim Kardashian should mean something to you. The films offered here are mostly private videos, where you should not make high demands on quality or editing technique.
Sites and Channels: These two areas lead into the vivid.com network. Under Sites you get access to thematically sorted websites. Channels, on the other hand, are virtual shows that have to be booked separately.
Incredibly Pretty Porn Actresses
Live, Dating and Store: Under Live, various webcam girls are grouped together, who provide their services for a price per minute. Unfortunately, I could not test the dating area, because the page load lasted endlessly. Behind the menu item Store is a sex store with the usual offers.
As you would expect from the market leader, the picture and sound quality is very good. Older movies are only available in a low resolution, but new productions consistently use the HD standard.
The actresses are consistently pretty as a picture. The fact that the women do not necessarily act naturally in front of the camera is in the nature of the industry. After all, you want to fulfill fantasies and there is hardly any room for naturalness.
Opinions on Page Structure & Design
The page structure is largely logical except for the already mentioned, somewhat complicated function to download the films. Here a button would be more helpful than the cumbersome way via the right mouse button.
The design stays pleasantly in the background. Only the start page seems a bit overloaded. Here, less would be more.
Experiences With the Subscription Cancellation
If you want to cancel your subscription to Vivid.com, you will find that VIVID is unusually fair and informative.
- On vivid.com, there is a„Support“ link at the very top right, above the main menu. If you click on this, you land on a generous customer service page with the URL: https://support.vivid.com/
The site is designed to let you send a support email to VIVID and let VIVID handle the cancellation. However, I would prefer to handle this myself and in fact it is possible
- Look in your welcome email to see who the billing company (also named: Payment processor or Biller) was. It can be EPOCH, VENDO, or CCbill. Click on the billing company link in the email. You can also click on the billing company at the top right of the support page next to the text „Looking to cancel your membership?“.
- You will land on:
- Log in with two entries in the input form, e.g. „e‑mail address“ and „user name“. You will find a „Cancel“ button, you will be asked for the cancellation reason and that’s it. An e‑mail confirms the cancellation again.
Test Verdict & Conclusion of the vivid.com Review
Vivid does a lot right on vivid.com. However, a few things disturb the almost entirely positive impression
Among the positive things that can be said about vivid.com are horny action, very pretty actresses and a huge selection of almost all sexual play types.
One particularly negative thing that stood out is that vivid.com also wants to sell more subscriptions through the back door when you sign up. If you don’t remove the corresponding checkmarks, it becomes more expensive than you wanted. The cumbersome download function and the „forgetful“ filtering are annoying, but you can live with it.
My conclusion for vivid.com is that the site is one of the best when it comes to movies. If, on the other hand, you’re more into photography, you’d better look for another site.Visit Vivid.com
