Pros and Cons
- some good-looking videos
- exclusive content
- real alt amateur porn
- streaming-only videos
- no zipped photo sets
- awkward navigation
According to the site's mission statement, No Fauxxx means "no fakes" ("faux" is French). Most of the models are not professionals or sex workers, although some are big names in the alt and BBW porn niches. Either way, they are normal people interested in expressing their sexuality. Lots of sites claim to be different from the mainstream, but few live up to that claim. The good thing is that this site does!
That statement of quality can only come from checking out the site and seeing what they provide and I have done just that. The problem is that this is a very amateur site. While I do appreciate that in the performers, it unfortunately also applies to the rest of the site. New content is added every week and aside from a more colorful design, not too much has changed since our last visit.
For a site that has been around for many years, 165 photo sets and 72 videos don't seem like much content. However, the site was started and is run by Courtney Trouble, who also does much of the photography and other duties. This is an alt porn site that does it for the love of it.
The photos often look good, but are never high-res and can't be saved in Zip folders. Meanwhile, the videos are very hit and miss. Some only look okay, some are unwatchable, but others look good. The filming is another area permeated by the amateur nature of it all. I saw shadows, poor lighting and even fingers in front of the lens in one movie. Movies can only be streamed.
I watched one that looked like someone had pointed a camera at a television set. While I appreciate the art-house feel, it doesn't necessarily make for the best production. The picture quality often leaves much to be desired as well. However, even given all that, this really is a true alt site that lives and loves without giving in to any kind of typical porn pressures.
In the past, navigation was a breeze. This is no longer the case due to a redesign that's horrible in comparison to what was previously available. At first glance, it looks like a decent design with several section tabs at the top. However, they're all part of the tour and only list previews of some of the material. To find the actual content, you must check the members' area tab only.
Once there, you'll find a huge, scrolling-heavy page of blog updates, because that's what the site is now. On top of this, most "updates" are often devoid of information until you click on them, so for almost every vid and photo set, you have no preview to tell you if you want to check it out or not.
To top things off, the cost has gone up since out last visit. In light of all this, there are too many faults with No Fauxxx to make your stay all that enjoyable. Fans of the queer porn niche might enjoy it, but even they probably won't stay longer than a month.
