Rabbits Reviews Rise Award Winner
AMATEUR SITE OF THE YEAR

You have heard about them on TV and in magazines. Now you can check them out on the Net for some of the hottest and most plentiful amateur action you'll ever manage to find on one website. This huge collection is almost overwhelming in size. Homegrown Video is the place to see it all - and see it all uncut. In fact, this is the ultimate site for people who love sex and love to watch other people doing it!

There's a lot to see on HomegrownVideo, but thankfully finding what you're looking for is pretty easy due to their design. Links to videos and pictures can be found at the top of every page and there's a search engine. You can also browse by "videos being watched" and there's a "display by series" filter.

If you're like me, you'll start with the videos. There are over 6,510 movies so far and they tend to offer good-quality playback. Each vid has a write-up and members have added reviews as well. You can rate the scene and post your own feedback. A large percentage are "classic videos," so apparently they sat in a vault for a while before being removed in order to have their formats updated for the Web.

You can search the movies by date, name, rating or haphazardly, like I did. Whichever way you choose, you will be thoroughly entertained and energized by the hardcore action. The videos are offered as Windows Media files and can be downloaded as clips and full-length films. You have the choice between three qualities. You can also download them for mobile devices and watch some fast-loading, but streaming-only, versions.

In the picture section you'll find around 1,434 galleries. You often get vid caps instead, but there are crisp and clear pics too and you can view them in slideshows. Most sets have a combo of both. Extras include erotic stories, video feeds and live cam shows. You can also interact with other members.

Obviously, the models are mostly amateur performers with content that they made themselves at home. However, you'll also find scenes starring babes who went pro and just never hit the big leagues, as well as several big-name pornstars like Sasha Grey, Silvia Saint, Vicky Vette and Aria Giovanni from before they were famous.

You can also earn some money for yourself by submitting your own homemade videos. You can earn close to $1,000 depending on what goes on, like you get more if there's group sex or if it's really unique.

Clear your schedule before venturing inside! With its mammoth selection of movies and other erotic content, as well as daily updates, your time (and your hands) will be full. Homegrown Video is certainly one of the best places to get real amateur hardcore action.

    This is homegrown, we are taking notice in some of the problems you are addressing. First off the emails you should get one if you use your real email, if that isnt the case then check your spam filter. Tickets are the same way you cant register with some fake email and expect a return since the ticket will never get to you. Cancelling has a huge link on top that you click and pick the processor that you used and done, not any more simple then that. The other issue i see on here is the phone number, that is our customer support line who passes it on to us to fix. Put a ticket in with any other issues and we will work on them as fast as possible.

    Having just joined, I am also experiencing trouble and suspicious business. Firstly, during the sign up process they never asked me for an email in order to receive my login info, which I totally overlooked. Second of all, when I called the support number they provide and like some of you, they cannot locate my purchase. To make matters worse, I paid for a product and don't have access to a single freaking file. BEWARE! DO NOT JOIN! Rabbit any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    I wish I had read the comments before joining this site. Content wise, you get your money's worth, but cancelling is one of the worst experiences ever. It is impossible to cancel via their website, and when I called them, they said my information was not on file and they had to "escalate" it to their managers. Still trying to resolve it, but their customer service and website quality (the site often crashes) will not make me a repeat customer, and I would dissuade any others from joining too.

    I joined this site for a special $10/month, which wasn't bad just to try out. The download speeds were horrible and new content isn't added that often. The archived content is in an old format that isn't guaranteed to play. I attempted to cancel my membership using the link on their main page multiple times, and with the link through their support site. After being notified that there was no record of my account information I noticed my billing statement showed a different company and different contact numbers for each month. After contacting that company they inform me that they are unable to locate my information and are having to escalate it. It's awkward that you can bill me each month yet not have my information in your system! I'm glad it's just $10/mo compared to the full price

    Terrible experience with this website. Definitely DOES NOT warranty the high score that RabbitReviews has given it.

    I've only been able to login once since I signed up. Subsequent login attempts have all failed. Still waiting on the website to get back to me on the ticket I created.

    My recommendation is to avoid this site.

    SLOW, SLOW, SLOW. I just signed up, about an hour ago. I had difficulty navigating because the site is slower than when I used to use dial-up. When I finally found something to download, I was lucky to get 300k/sec download speeds (also, while downloading, the site navigation no longer works). I feel completely ripped off. Buyer beware!
    update:
    speed is intermittently good & bad. however, a new issue arose. the daily 12gig download limit isn't necessarily a problem. however, now when i click on a download link (after downloading a handful of videos) i receive a graphic message stipulating that i need to wait for an undisclosed amount of time, before any further downloading. thanks for mentioning that, rabbitsreviews! (sarcasm) definitely not renewing the membership (i've been a member, now, for maybe 5-6 hours.) BEWARE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONIES. it is like HGV is operating with web servers and connections built with 2004 specifications. definitely not up to par, with 2013.

    I signed up for a trial membership. Thought the site was ok, but now I am unable to cancel and will probably be billed for the first month. The cancel membership button won't work, none of the email addresses that I found work, and I can't find a number to call.

    I like the original movies, they seemed amateur and crude, just the way I like them. Many of the current movies are not amateur at all, just like this Damon guy who shows up in so many of them, he is the guy in your preview vid clip above and the guy who we can see in one of the still photos above. I do like that if you come back after an absence and use the same screen name that your previous favorite list is still there.

    Their trial membership is a fraud. They say that you can pay the trial fee and then cancel before being billed for the month, but trying to cancel the trial via their site resulted in errors and support did not respond in time so I was billed for the entire month. There is no e-mail or phone number offered on their website in order to cancel memberships. You can only fill out a "support ticket" which they don't respond to. So basically there is no way to cancel the trial membership before it runs out.

    Of course, once I was billed for the whole month their "cancel membership" function on their website mysteriously started working even though it didn't work during the trial period.

    BEWARE: NOT A TRUSTWORTHY WEBSITE

    This site is not about true amateurs. In fact, as others have noted, the vast majority of the videos (mostly poor in quality) are not of amateurs at all. Am very disappointed at wasting my money.

    Next time, when I read these review sites, I am just going to go for a trial run.

    I have been a member to HGV twice in the past. They have a lot of good content and that's why I wanted to join again. But this time my MC Debt card was declined by all three of their "processors". Then I had a pending charge on my card for the membership fee on my card which remained on the card for days. I contacted HGV support and all they could tell me is that my card was declined and that the hold should drop off MY money in a few days. It took about four days for the hold to be released and no one could tell me why I was declined and why they were able to put a hold on the funds and then decline me. I just tried to sign up again and the same crap happened. I don't understand if my card is good on other sites why not theirs?... And why put a hold on my funds? Either accept my money or reject it....Don't hold onto my money..... Anybody else have this issue or is it just me?

    rabbit review is not acurate there is a download limit of 5 gbt many poor quality videos also some very good quality videos anyway this site does not deserve the rating that rabbit give to homegrown videos.
    Reply from RabbitsReviews (Date:01/30/2012): We initially reported that there was no download limit because there was none listed on their site or in their terms and conditions. After reading your comment, we reached out to Homegrown to confirm and learned that indeed they do have a download limit and it has now been added above. We also requested they add the language to their terms and conditions and they have done so. Thank you for the head's up on the issue.

    Well to do a review myself i have to say with the amount of content its worth it. Download limits are there but email to support they lift it pretty quickly. The thing with amateur videos are no one wants to see a POV all the time, swingers tape each other, etc. Just cause its POV or stationary camera doesnt make it amateur that comment made me laugh. I have cancelled my membership not because i wanted to but because im broke, at that time i just emailed support and they replied back that it was taken care of less then a hr later. Some of these comments just seem out of wack because i had no such problems they all described and if i did a email to support which was replied quickly was taken care of. I mean a site with 9000 whatever videos and still complaints, crazy

    Lot's of videos. However, there are very few, if any, home videos. They seem to me to be VHS movies from the 80's that have been transferred. I would say 99% third party shot, so it's not even a little realistic that these could be home movies. I'm sorry I wasted my money.

    This site is not worth the money: 1) very few real amateur vids, if any at all; 2) very slow download speed - no response from server if you're trying to download several vids at once; I like amateur sites but this is not worth the money.

    No tech support works, difficult to find out how to cancel membership. You need to call the 800 number (800-923-9948) in order to cancel, other methods don't work. Site itself is well-presented, easy to use, but limited true amateur content.

    Not a review, either. I'm contemplating joining, but I question the authenticity that this is really amateur porn from the sample clip. In most amateur clips I've seen the camera is either 1) stationary, or 2) held by one of the participants, and not filmed by a 3rd party camera person. I'm not saying that it couldn't happen, but it just doesn't seem "authentic"...also, I'm concerned about the daily download limits some of the reviewers have indentified...what's the deal?

    Mike J.

    HGV has some ok vids, content is ok, but access is awful.

    So we’re clear, if you have good connection, you carefully write down, add up the file sizes of your vids or else you trigger a 48 hours ban. If you don’t measure your downloads as you go, if you hit the limit, then 48 hour bans ensure that… 1) you only see content 1 in 2 days of your sub, 15/30 days of your sub and 2) your download allowance is only a little less than 2.5GB/day.

    Some files are smaller but some are as big as 700mb. Does it make sense to have an automatic mechanism to block people to 2.5GB/day or 5GB/day when some files are 0.7GB big??? No. Does it make sense to force subscribers to keep a little notepad handy to write down file sizes as they go??? No.
