Scores upon scores of movies are at your fingertips here! Hot Movies is like a porn lover's dream in many respects, but it's somewhat of a qualified dream. First off, the design is far from dreamy. It looks dated, even if there are enough navigation features that you can't really fault it on anything beyond its limited aesthetic appeal. There is an option to customize how you view the site, though, so that's really cool.

We are talking about a site that offers more than 176,750 DVDs. Each offers between 4 and 10 scenes, so there are around 1,237,000 videos! This also means that most of the content isn't exclusive. That isn't to say, however, that the porn here can easily be found elsewhere. There is an exclusive section containing 2,502 videos as well as a lot of amateur and fetish titles that are hard to find. Also, new titles from Anarchy Films and Elegant Angel are released on HotMovies before you can see them anywhere else.

You can search by category, studio or pornstar. You can also choose the kind of performer (male, female, transgender) and setting or find a specific series or director. You can also check out the most popular movies and those that were recently added. The amount and variety is excellent and the site continues to grow. There aren't any photos, but with so many movies it's not such a big deal.

This site is like having an adult video store right on your computer. However, unlike most others, this is a pay-per-view video site, meaning that there is no monthly membership fee. Instead, you sign up for free and buy time when you want to watch a movie, which streams in a Windows Media or Silverlight player with mostly great-looking playback. Only the scenes offering a "mega" option reach the top of that range. Some users have complained that the movies are slow to play, but every movie I tried was fine in the highest option.

If you just need a quick 5-10 minutes to take care of things, this pay-as-you-go site can end up saving you money. Although saving movies to your computer isn't the norm here, there is an option to download certain videos as either Windows Media, MP4 or DivX-formatted AVI files and you can use your minutes to purchase these or pay a fee. You can also rent scenes and watch them an unlimited number of times over seven or 30 days. There's also the ability to buy it and redeem your "rewards" points for it (check out the rewards FAQ page to see how it works).

Although I was skeptical about the benefits of the pay-to-watch system, it's starting to make sense to me now. It comes down to how much time you are going to spend watching porn online. If you watch a fair amount for lengthy periods, a paysite would be more beneficial. However, if you don't watch often or you watch often but for short periods of time, then Hot Movies is a great pay-per-view site that you should check out.

    Huge selection of non-HD movies. Site is kind of slow with very few pay-to-download options.

    They also market 852x480 material as HD. Stick with Gamelink or AEBN if you like quality.

    One of the best sites that I've used. Huge selection of movies. Lots of nice tools to find what I'm looking for. I've never had any technical issues that others have mentioned when using the site.

    Best thing about the site is the great search categories. You can search title or star and studio to limit the amount of results...unlike other sites. I would of given a better a score but not able to find a highly publicized video (Mr. Marcus cool spot) which should definitely be available on this site. Maybe in a celebrity section.

    + Lots of navigation options and filters (by star, studio, genre, year, scene elements)
    + Enormous collection (150,000+ movies)
    + 3 free plays
    + reward minutes for logging in (after purchase)
    + downloads available
    + login account works on clips.com and free clips on purchases
    + NO ADS

    -Not free ($.08 to $.15 per minute depending on plan)

    I haven't had any bandwidth issues (they offer 5 speeds between 34k and 2048k)

    I would have given this site a BIG 10 until about 2 months ago. Something happened on their end, now movies are extremely slow... nothing but buffering, I cant stream a movie. Its really a shame, the site at one time was the best hands down. I would call tech support but know I will get nothing but frustration and they will likely tell me its my connection, which I know it is not.

    As other readers have suggested, this site is horribly slow and the higher speed links do not work, the technical support page will imply it's your connection or computer, it's not. I'll be back if and when the servers can actually deliver what we pay for!

    The site has good content but it's servers are so horribly slow that you cannot watch anything but the lowest quality, I'd avoid until they get their act together and get servers and bandwith capable of handling the 1Mb movies they offer for streaming.

    The download speed is not limited by your connection, but by theirs. 1Meg viewing is almost impossible and HighSpeed viewing is too low quality for a pay site. Too many free streaming sites to pay for this one, find a download site and be happy.
