When Vivid says they're home to the hottest pornstars, they mean it! Hot, hardcore movies starring your favorite pornstars are delivered right here. There's loads of porn, but some things about the site will leave you a bit frustrated and wanting more. It's probably an effective way of getting people to spring for the studio's DVDs, though.
The video section boasts a considerable amount of porn. There are 1,279 full-length DVDs and with about 4-5 scenes per DVD that translates to around 5,700 scenes, which is a lot. The flicks cover your usual hardcore bases, like blowjobs, doggy style, facials, interracial, anal, etc. You get quite a bit of bonus content, including some additional scenes to stream as well as a slew of DVDs.
When you click on a movie, you're taken to the streaming player (which starts playing right away) and you'll see the description of the film plus all the scenes from it, so you can easily skip to whichever one you want. Many of these streaming-only flicks have HD or Full HD stats, but they don't always look that impressive. It's like they sometimes reformatted lower-quality footage, which doesn't always work out so well.
In the past, every scene seemed to come with a set of photos, but nowadays it looks like only a small percentage of the 870 babes has a set. And you can only find them in the model index now, in addition to a mini bio sometimes. I would say that you can count on about 120 galleries with images that aren't particularly large or glossy. And you can't download them in Zip files.
I feel like I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this site could do with an overhaul of its interface - even if it was redesigned at least once since our last visit. It's less a question of aesthetics though and more of a lack of navigational features beyond a basic keyword search. You can't save your favorites, leave comments or rate the scenes. There are no sorting options, nor is there an advanced search engine.
The site is a lot bigger compared to our last visit, so they are updating, but I couldn't find any dates, so just how often they add something new can only be estimated. It must be frequent, though, possibly daily and/or with more than one scene at a time. And clearly this site has plenty of content already. All in all, Vivid is worth visiting as long as you're down with streaming-only movies.
