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.

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.

VIVID Review (Test & Vergleich)

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.

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.
  • So I sel­ect „Money trans­fer“ from the sel­ec­tion box and only a „Full name“ and the coun­try is reques­ted. Exemplary, the price, a note about the sub­scrip­ti­on and cont­act infor­ma­ti­on for the bil­ler is dis­play­ed. The tick that one has „read the terms of use AND pri­va­cy poli­cy“ is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly set. I click on the blue but­ton „Complete purcha­se“. Then you go through the fami­li­ar pay­ment pro­cess for SOFORTüberweisungen. This may vary slight­ly depen­ding on the house bank
  • 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.

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:
    - https://epoch.com/
    - https://secure.vend‑o.com/customers/
    - https://support.ccbill.com?language=german.
  • 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.
