Homegrown Video Review by Vanessa Homegrown Video

Review by Vanessa

Released Nov 12, '14 , Written Nov 5, '14
Intro

Homegrown Video has been around since forever; before us even! It's an old classic of a site from way back in the day. In fact, our initial visit and subsequent reviews of the site goes all the way back to the birth of our own site in 2003. My last visit was back in 2011, where the score increased 86, for me at least. At that point there was more than 3,250 videos and 950 galleries plus all the extras that come along with this legend of a site. Currently there are now more than 5,100 videos, but no digital photos. A membership here has been offered as a special deal set-up for our users, TBPers can get in on the action for less than $15 bucks per month.


The Pros

  Large Archive of Amateur Content & Community.

A real and true amateur community. Aside from the massive amount of content, there is an actual community of people that frequent here. Not only will you find member submitted content, but an active forum, news updates, and just all sorts of ways to get involved or admire real sexual amateurs who love to share their sex life online. A few new features include member chat/messaging, an active forum/live feed, member pages (walls), and even increased interaction abilities between users who submit content and member fans. You can even now request videos directly from submitters.

  Updates often.

Multiple updates are added weekly so there is always something new to see. Just this week alone about 4 new video clips were added. This is in addition to member chats, active user forums, community profiles & member interaction, submission abilities, Tweets and more.

Other Good Stuff:

  • The look for this longstanding website actually doesn't do much for aesthetics but the content categories and improved organization makes getting around the member's area rather easy. The design has attempted to have smoothed out in the looks department with videos being listed, categories/tags are offered and cross-linked, model lists, a keyword and advanced search feature (for additional filtering), plus all the Homegrown Classic Extras: cams & live shows, stories, community & features, etc.
  • It looks like the videos offer Flash in-browser viewing options (high/med/low), as well as WMV downloads.
  • Lengthy descriptions are offered for the videos.
  • Many member comments on scenes.

The Cons

  Quality Can be Inconsistent & Definitely Still Needs Improvement.

Such is the case with amateur content in general, user-submitted content and etc. While some okay looking videos are being added, quality can still be inconsistent at times and the more you look around in the archives it's clear that it suffers. These are not your modern high quality scenes that come anywhere close to todays standards. Even since my last review videos have topped out at 2000k.

  No Clear Update Schedule.

There is no clear update schedule here and even though it appears as though you have the ability to browse by the latest scenes, when you check the actual date stamps (only viewed by clicking on the content first) things are more random than they appear.

Minor Negatives:

  • While this seems like the set-up is to be an amateur community, where are the active profiles? Nothing happened when I tried to click on member profiles.
  • No digital images, just a selection of screen caps and not very good quality either.
  • Not all of the scenes offered downloads and a daily download limit appears to be in place.
  • Site design is truly raw and somewhat unappealing.

Bottom Line

A large archive of amateur content in one fairly active community.

Homegrown content is a big draw to those of you old school amateurs, swingers and exhibitionists online networker's looking to hook up and share your lifestyle with others. In fact, it's the one and only even worth considering and given its size and longevity, I'd say a membership here is a better deal than ever! It's not even that pricey at this point (for TBP users), and so now you're getting even more for your money, as if there wasn't enough beforehand. It's exciting to see this classic site continue into the future of Internet porn, but I wish they could improve on quality somehow.
