Penthouse is one of those magazines that was kept behind the counter. I remember sneaking a peek at it while working in my local convenience store. But times change and even adult magazines need to evolve. Now, instead of having to ask some snot-nosed clerk to pull a dog-eared copy down from the shelf, you can simply go online. It's easier and less embarrassing this way.
And just like how magazines redesign their pages, so do websites and Penthouse looks pretty different today than it did when we were last here. It didn't look bad before, but it does look a little cleaner today with a more simple and easy to understand interface. However, it also looks like they got rid of a few things, namely a lot of the videos.
The video section on Penthouse has 1,123 scenes to download. Yes, that is a lot of content, but it's also a lot less than before. I thought maybe they had moved them to different sections of the site, but I couldn't find any others. And when I checked out the oldest scenes, there was one from 2011, two from 2012, one from both 2013 and 2014 and the rest are dated 2016.
One thing that hasn't changed is the fact that the movies offer up both a 720p and a 1080p file and they look awesome whether you choose to stream them or download them. They do only offer an MP4 file though, as opposed to the multiple options they used to provide.
At any rate, you'll see diverse action, like many "pets" in solo and lesbian shoots. You'll also see some hardcore action with lucky dude getting their dicks wet in the pet's mouth and pussy. When we were last here the collection was a mix of exclusive porn shot just for the site and scenes taken from DVDs. I'm thinking that maybe the "DVD" content is what they removed so for now i am going to call this collection all exclusive.
The bulk of the site these days really rests on the 5,243 photo galleries that offer up gorgeous high-res images to download in Zip files. I mean, would you expect lower photo quality from a site like Penthouse? The sets include solo "pets" spreads, solo model layouts, girl-on-girl sets, hardcore shoots of horny couples and group-sex shoots.
The site updates daily (both videos and photo sets), so you're unlikely to run out of content any time soon. Also, you can enjoy access to a lot of Penthouse letters as well as articles from the magazine, some of which are actually pretty interesting.
This online version of Penthouse is worthy of a membership. And unlike before when there were different levels of membership and such, now they look to have gone back to the one membership that gives you everything. This is much simpler to understand and probably a better value for most folks interested in what the site is providing.
