Vivid is the official website of the most powerful studio in America's porn-film industry, Vivid Entertainment, where a huge selection of their hardcore porn videos are available.
The member's area looks clean and professionally done with some nice looking graphics. The main members page connects you with all of the available content and is really quite easy to navigate. The content is listed in the order it was added with no additional sort and browse options and no advanced search/filter tools.
There are currently 1,058 full-length DVD's (around 5,000 scenes) in their collection. Most DVDs have picture galleries to go along with them. A new DVD is added weekly so the site is still growing well.
The videos are streaming only. The in-browser Flash streaming works well and there are several ways to download streaming videos to your computer, if you know what you are doing. For instructions, just google "how to download streaming videos". The video quality is very good. There are three quality settings, 720p HD (1280x720 at 2100 Kbps), 540p HD (960x540 at 1600 Kbps) and 360p (640x360 at 800 Kbps).
Accompanying most of the DVDs are photos. There are typically around 100-250 photos per DVD, some contain a bit more, some less. The pictures come in at 533x800 and they are clear, well-lit, and professionally shot. There are no ZIP files available here for the picture galleries, so you're stuck downloading photos one at a time.
Subject matter of the content:
Vivid features all original scenes in plenty of great hardcore niches. Whether you like anal, interracial, big cocks, teens, POV, toys, or lesbians, you'll find it here. There are also parodies from hit movies and TV shows, classics, alternative DVDs, and sex guide videos.
Bonus content & extras:
There are 708 bonus videos (each between 10 and 30 minutes long) and
4 bonus celeb sex tapes (the Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee sex tape, the Tom Sizemore sex tape, the Karrine Steffans sex tape, and the Janine and Vince Neil sex tape).
Vivid offers up a great collection for all hardcore and pornstar fans. The collection is large and they have some of the hottest, most attractive adult performers in the porn business today. The site has a few issues, particularly no downloadable videos and lack of user features. However, it's the entertaining content that really makes the site stand out. Membership is normally $33.97 a month, but if you join through our link first, you can get in for $19.95 a month, which is a fantastic discount.
