When ER shot a live episode in 1997, they excused the cameras in all of the scenes by writing a documentary crew into a script. When a porn site like Live Gonzo wants to do the same, they don't really need to come up with an excuse. As long as the sex is hot, they can do whatever they want.
So, you won't see them maintaining any kind of fake storyline on LiveGonzo. Instead, they just get right down to hardcore penetration, while occasionally talking to the cameraman or checking their website to see what their members are saying. So far, they've shot 32 videos.
The movies work through a three-stage process, of sorts. First, there are the live shows that feature such stars as Lisa Ann, Alexis Texas and Kagney Linn Karter. While the average performance is a little over an hour each, there are a few that are twice as long. Shows previously were once a month, but they have now increased to once a week. There is a membership option that allows you only access to this section.
The next section is "archives," where the most recent shows are posted for streaming-only access. After some time, those movies move to the "high quality" section, where you can download them in their entirety or save them as even smaller segments. I would go for the first option, since they come as HD Windows Media files. A smaller-sized WMV format is also available and there are low-quality MPEGs too for the short segments. If you can download a show that means it comes with a matching set of high-res pics, so you'll end up with a total of 25 photo galleries.
All the talk of hardcore on the join page had me expecting to see plenty of hard, real cock. While you will find one-on-one and threesome fare with guys and gals, it seems most of the emphasis is on lesbian pairings. Still, once you see Sophie Dee and Puma Swede explore their huge toy collection together, or Clara G ram a double-headed dildo up her box, you'll realize they're perfect smutty substitutes.
There are no bonus sites included. All told, Live Gonzo has a fun concept and if you enjoy extra long scenes with some of the hottest pornstars on the planet, you'll find something to like here.
