It seems as though everything is digital these days. It started with television, then moved to music and movies and now even the playground has been welcomed into the digital age. Okay, so this ain't a playground with monkey bars, a merry-go-round and a long slide, but rather a Digital Playground, where adults come to play with themselves as they watch other adults play with each other.
DigitalPlayground is a large and growing movie site from the great DP production company. These ain't some fly-by-night porn productions, though. These folks have been doing this for a long time and have got some of the biggest names in the adult biz to prove it.
You can find content featuring specific performers easily. All you need to do is head into the "girls" section. You can also look up male talent. Alexis Texas, Faye Reagan, Jenna Haze, Sasha Grey and Tori Black are just some of the pornstars who make appearances. Many of the raunchy scenes here are taken from XXX films like PowerFuck, Cougar Street, My Boss's Daughter and Boobzilla.
The sites has a huge amount of content, with 526 DigitalPlayground DVDs (3,766 scenes) and 30 original series (235 scenes). All told (when you also add in the 354 BTS scenes) you're getting access to 4,355 scenes and that number keeps growing, with 17 new ones in the last month alone. You'll also find around 3,950 photo sets. Many contain high-res shots and every set can be downloaded in a Zip file.
Everything can be streamed on the site and you get several settings, including a "Trulife HD" option that's very impressive. But if you want to download the content, it's going to cost you extra, because you'll need to upgrade to a DP Premium membership. Note that if you sign up with a trial membership, you don't have the option of downloading anything.
The site looks good and you can sort the DVDs and scenes in a few ways, which is pretty useful and you get other browsing tools as well, like an advanced search. However, when it came to navigating the hundreds of pages I could only skip ahead by a few at a time or jump right to the last page. This obviously made getting to those hundreds of middle pages a very click-heavy operation.
In terms of bonuses, there's a huge archive with third-party DVDs, so you're really getting a ton of content in the end, plus all those new scenes added each month. Digital Playground has a lot going for it and you'll certainly have hours of great porn at your fingertips, but I have to admit that it would be more appealing if downloads were included with a standard membership.
