Other Review Rating ((10 sites)
It’s hard to see any exact concept behind the huge amount of porn videos, but if to judge by the site’s title it should be devoted to Pornstars. And indeed, if you’re check the old sites’ titles, you’ll find a plenty of personal porn sites, such as Lex Steele, Bruno B Reloaded, Kelly Summer, Melissa Doll, Shelby Bell, Mike John VIP, Club Vanessa Blue and Annie Berry. However, it doesn’t make much sense now.
Only a few porn sites out of 51 available in Pornstars Network do update. Most of the content is outdated (like 5+ years old), and most of the porn stars they used to expose have retired. That pretty much limits the concept of the porn network to just exposing a huge diversity and amount of standard porn videos. Though there are really a plenty of porn stars, there isn’t any specific devotion to loud names or talented performers. Thus, I’d define the site’s content as all-hardcore.
Average scene playtime here is around 15 minutes. There is a plenty of all-hardcore niches, such as interracial, group sex, lesbians, blowjobs and so on. Depending on the particular type of action, you can have a long setup and prelude, or just a quickie, and the main part may include blowjob and titjob, or just a gangbang. There are a plenty of ethnic, amateur, teen and DP scenes, a good portion of solo masturbation and foot fetish vids, almost 6,700 gay videos and 320 tranny videos. Thus, the diversity is very large, and it’s hard to describe a typical scene.
+ Outstanding number of videos
There are over 80,860 videos and 3832 photo sets in Pornstar Network. It’s a totally insane amount of content, collected from 51 porn sites, 181 studios and 10,000+ DVD. Average scene length is close to 15 minutes, though there are many longer scenes too. Average photo set contains 150-200 photos; most scenes are also provided with screenshots. It’s impossible to watch even 1/10 of these movies within a year, and the whole collection is enough for the lifetime.
+ Several quality formats, including many movies in Full HD
Videos in Pornstar Network have several quality formats: recent ones are available in 1080p Full HD (~8,000 kbps bitrate), older ones have HD 720p resolution, but most are represented by 540, 480, and 360 mp4 files. You can adjust streaming quality (SD / HD) and download any of the quality formats as an mp4 file. Photos have maximum resolution of 1600x1200, available for download as a zipped archive.
+ Multiple daily updates and a schedule
You can expect from 3 to 10 new scenes added daily to Pornstar Network. However, most of the scenes added to the network these days, come from Moviez+ porn site (not included into the default package, see Payments). Only a few are provided to all members, those marked as Exclusive. The update schedule is available within one click from the Videos section (View Upcoming Updates link on the right), and it includes all the today’s coming scenes and a few scenes from the future days, randomly exposed. There are no trailers for them, but covers with thumbnail slide show are quite informative anyway.
+ Informative design and quick navigation
The pornsite has a powerful system of tag / category filters, you can also filter HD videos only, or filter scenes by packages (see Payments). Sorting options are many: most recent / popular (highest rated) / rated / favorited / commented / viewed. You can, as well visit any particular porn site of the network to check its content. You can rate scenes from 1 to 10, comment and add them to Favorites, plus share them with friends, bookmark and even add your custom tags to every scene. Download options are many (4-5 various resolution / bitrate videos). Another positive thing is that you don’t get many ads inside the member zone.
+ Awesome model index and profiles!
This is another great feature of Pornstar Network, which corresponds to its title. Model index is just great: finally I see Sasha Grey ranked #1! As well, there is a plenty of really significant porn stars in the index. There are 13,023 entries in the index (12,409 girls, the rest are males), and you can filter them by ethnicity, nationality, alphabet and search by name, plus sort them by name / rating / most comments / views and by several aspects of the rating. Model profiles include a photo, some brief description and stats for each model, plus her social network accounts (like Twitter), and of course, a list of her scenes (pretty large). You can rate model by three aspects: 1 to 10 separate ratings for Body, Personality and Performance. Surely, you can add models to favorites and write on their “wall”.
+ 51 network sites
There are 51 porn sites, included in the Pornstar Network, and a few extra sites, available for extra payments. The standard ones are: Jizz Holic, FB Hotties, Mike John VIP, Club Filly, Pornstar Squirt, Flirty Pussy and many others. Most of them do not update anymore, but the archives are very large. Extra sites include ExtraMoviez, which actually provides 7/8 of the network’s content and 90% of the updates. We have problems accessing the promised Free Live Cams, so it doesn’t count.
- Packages access system
This is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen on a porn site. Say, you’ve paid for membership on Pornstar Network, given away fair $29.95 per month, and you want to watch and download some of its movies. You’ll find out that 90% of the movies are not available to you within the “Standard” package. You’ll have to pay extra $29.95/month to get access to the scenes marked as Moviez+, and they are the absolute majority of the network’s scenes.
- Download limits
Like the packages wasn’t enough, Pornstar Network has also restricted the daily downloads from the porn site to just 50 movies. It means that independently on your connection speed, you won’t be able to download more than 50 scenes every 24 hours, else your account gets blocked until the next day.
- Most sites do not update
Another issue that is very disappointing, is that the network almost doesn’t update. I mean, ExtraMoviez do update, of course, but among the original porn sites (the 51 ones) the majority hasn’t updated for years! Some of the sites were dead 5+ years ago. Thus, most of the videos you get as a Standard or Premium user, are outdated, average-quality scenes from 2000’s.
Swindle or misrepresentation?
You shouldn’t trust anything these guys promise during the free tour or the signup process. All the numbers are false. You were promised 50,000 Full-length videos, no download limits, 24 daily updates, and pornstar communication, but what you really get as a Premium member is access to ~10,000 movies with 50 movies daily download limit, like 5-6 updates per day and no real pornstar communication (they do not respond). This is totally unfair, and thus Pornstar Network’s claims should not be trusted.
You can create a free account and watch some of the videos (though not download). To get full access to like 10,000 videos (51 porn sites), you have to pay $29.95 monthly or $89.50 annually (it’s the Exclusive package). If you want to get access to 90% of the movies (marked as Moviez), you’ll have to buy additional Extra Moviez package for $29.95 / month. Some Premium package includes additional access to 30 official pornstar sites (additional $9.99 per month). Buying all the packages to access all the site’s feature may result in unbearable monthly payments (like $70 or more). Thus, it’s a totally unfriendly pricing policy.
Pornstar Network could be nice if not its cannibalistic pricing policy with all those packages, which is a shameless rip-off. The fact that standard sites do not update for years, doesn’t add to the network’s attractiveness. Overall, the network has left a negative impression; thus I wouldn’t recommend you to waste your time and money on it. Of course, you can still try, if you want.
