Penthouse Review by Maggie Penthouse

Review by Maggie

Released Feb 19, '15 , Written Feb 11, '15
Intro

Penthouse.com is a site that needs little in the way of introduction. The world-famous magazine has been satisfying the porn cravings of men for decades. They made the move to the internet in the late 90s and have used the platform to share even more galleries, videos, and even magazine archives with their fans. They continue to evolve, adding 3D video to their collection as of late. Membership to the iconic website is offered at $30 a month.


The Pros

  Hot Penthouse content.

This is Penthouse, people! Of course it's hot! We're talking world-famous Pets here. The models are beautiful and the scenes have high production value, with nicely done locations and a professional vibe. The action includes a mix of solo, lesbian, and hardcore content, all done in the style that Penthouse fans are sure to love.

  Great-sized collection.

Penthouse's online presence began in 1997, and they've been going strong ever since. There are currently 4,790 galleries and 3,700 videos, featuring more than 1,675 models. This is a massive collection with plenty to keep fans entertained.

  High quality content.

Throughout the collection, I was impressed with the quality of these Penthouse scenes. The photos and videos are nicely done; clearly the work of skilled photographer, videographers, and models, and a production crew that knows how to put a scene together. Many of the movies are high definition wmvs and mp4s that play at up to 7000k and are 1280 x 720 in size. You'll even find some that are 3D! These are beautiful movies, that keep up the quality expectations associated with Penthouse.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Updates come often. This week alone, four new videos and two galleries were added to the collection.
  • Videos can be streamed in browser using Flash and downloaded as an mp4 and wmv in mutiple quality settings. Additionally, there are both clips and full-length scenes.
  • There are some great extras here, including magazine archives and the world famous Penthouse letters.
  • There are some helpful navigation tools, including a model index, category list, and multiple sort options.

The Cons

  Content quality varies.

Obviously, with a site that has 18 years worth of content, you can expect some variety in terms of content quality. As you go back in the collection, you'll still see movies that are noted as being HD, but they're not nearly as sharp as the scenes that are currently being added.

Minor Negatives:

  • The design was surprisingly basic and there were too many ads in the member's area.
  • Very little information is provided for most of the models.
  • While getting around wasn't necessarily difficult, a site this large would really benefit from an advanced search tool.

Bottom Line

A great site that continues to live up to the high expectations of the Penthouse name.

It's great to see this world-famous brand continue to impress online at Penthouse. This is a massive site that is getting bigger by the day, adding more and more hot, original content, including high definition video. The site is user-friendly overall, with just a few changes I would make. It's well worth the cost of $30 a month for a membership here. If you're a Penthouse fan, or just a connoisseur of porn in general, you really must check out Penthouse.com.
