When Vivid says they're home to the hottest pornstars, they mean it! Hot, hardcore movies starring your favorite pornstars are delivered right here. They've also integrated their celebrity sex tapes (which were previously offered via a separate site), into their massive collection of solo and hardcore action.
Previously, the content was listed by DVD, but now Vivid simply lists the individual scenes. At any rate, the resulting 4,274 videos cover your usual hardcore bases, like blowjobs, doggy style, facials, interracial, anal, lesbians, etc. When browsing their section of categories, I didn't notice a solo/masturbation cat, but I do know that there are at least some scenes that fit the bill.
When you click on a scene, you're taken to the streaming player (but it doesn't start playing right away) and you'll see a description of the film plus its source site, category and model tags and the option to rate it and/or track it as a favorite. Plus, you now have the option of downloading the movies and most of them are in HD and/or Full HD (there are multiple resolutions). They even remastered some of their classic scenes.
They've also now added a photo section and it houses 569 galleries. Apparently, there weren't high-res pics in the past, but now you'll definitely find some, although they look much smaller in their popup display when you view them online. One thing that hasn't changed is that you still can't download them in Zip files, just one at a time.
The site has a new design yet again, but it's still lacking a bit. You can't post comments and there's no advanced search, but those are pretty minor issues. The real problem is that the pagination is limited to two arrows - one forward, one back - and that's it. There's no way to skip to the last or first page either.
The videos are now dated and they're updating them on a daily basis. The photo sets don't have dates, but they seem to match up with vids and are probably added around the same time. All in all, Vivid seems more worth it than ever before, especially now that the movies are downloadable. Follow them on social media to keep up to date.
