I'm a sucker for new packaging. You can put any product you want into a new container and if I liked it before, I'll like it even more. So it makes perfect sense that even though Shemale Yum was already a very popular site, the producers decided to rebrand it as Grooby Girls. After all, "shemale" is such a dated term and Grooby is a name that most folks recognize as an adult industry leader in trans porn.
ShemaleYum had been around for 20 years, which means it launched in 1997 and so from a historical standpoint that was pretty much at the very start of the Internet really taking off. Now, the archive of videos preserved on GroobyGirls doesn't quite stretch all the way back to that time, but the oldest one is from February 2002 and it's labeled as being in celebration of their five-year anniversary. And it actually looks pretty good for its age.
Of course, it's not up to standards of the newer additions among the 5,095 videos. After all, besides many of the newer scenes in both HD and Full HD downloads, quite a few of the very newest offer 4K as the best option when it comes to downloading them. For streaming, though, it tops off at high-def playback.
In case you doubted the 1997 debut of this site without seeing some visual proof of its existence, I'm happy to tell you that I've uncovered photographic evidence. Yes, the very oldest of the 6,143 photo galleries is more than two decades old. Again, this old material isn't as impressive when you compare it to the large high-res images in the newer spreads, but you can download all the sets in handy Zip files.
Despite the rebranding, the current version isn't particularly new given that it resembles most of the other Grooby sites. You have updates with videos and photos mixed together, but you can filter one or the other (without having to choose any other options) from the dropdown menu to do an advanced search. In the case of the newer scenes, which are added more than 25 times a month, they seem to always come with both flicks and pics.
Given that I've just given you a workaround to address the lack of separate sections, I should point out what's more of a problem here - the limited pagination. Often you'll find yourself faced with 100s of page to work your way through. You can jump ahead or back by 9 or 10 pages at a time, but it still isn't really practical. After all, there's no option to skip to the last page or back to the first, so you'll be clicking way too much.
I also feel it's important to address an issue one of our users mentioned about the old version of the site. Namely, the balance of solo versus hardcore porn. There are currently 324 videos and 360 galleries that fall in the hardcore category. Most of the time you'll see men penetrating the Tgirls, but there are a limited number of scenes with Tgirls doing males or females. Otherwise, you're seeing posing and masturbation. This also seems to apply to the bonus scenes you get from other Grooby sites.
In the end, whatever issues I had with the pagination didn't really stop me from enjoying this collection of diverse trans hotties, whether they're getting naughty with their own cock or somebody else's, or penetrating a tight asshole or pussy. Because change can be hard, let me assure you that overall, Grooby Girls delivers a fresh name to an established site while maintaining the collection's original appeal.
