Skin Video is up for review today, and it's a bit hard to classify this site. Their basic membership is just a pretty simple DVD site, with a pretty good-sized collection of DVD scenes and generic porn content. You can also upgrade to a premium membership, which gets you access to some amateur porn scenes and some HD content. It's basically a big video collection all mish-mashed together here. Normally, the standard membership is $15 a month, which is a decent price for sure. They also have a premium membership, which looks to add HD and amateur videos, but you have to buy a multi-month package for that.
Large collection of content.
As with most DVD-type sites, they have a lot of content to offer here. Granted, they're not as large as most DVD sites, but if you opt for the premium membership, there are lots of other videos available as well. Except over 38,000 scenes all told if you buy access to everything.
Some HD videos up.
Of course, you have to join in to the premium membership, but I'd say it's worthwhile. There are over 800 videos that are offered in high definition, which is a very sizable collection there as well. The HD isn't the best in the world, but it's definitely better than their DVD quality.
Lots of daily updates.
I don't know how rigid the schedule is, but it seems like updates come every few hours here pretty consistently. Across all the sections, I found 50 new videos, which is about seven new videos per day on average. That's pretty good!
Other Good Stuff:
The Flash player works well here for streaming video. The video starts up very quick, and even moving around is quick as well. I wouldn't mind a little higher quality here.
The search they have is pretty decent as you can include the categories, not include them, or just ignore them. The only place it needs more work is for the DVDs (see below).
The price isn't too bad here as you can have your membership for under $15 a month if you just want the DVD section. If you join for a few months at a time, it gets cheaper, and also gets you access to their HD and amateur content.
The streaming player gives you thumbnail previews as you hover over a new section to jump ahead, which is pretty slick.
Content is a bit random.
The range of content here is interesting. I get the DVD thing, but why do they add in the amateur videos, and HD videos, and then a whole section of screencaps? I'd rather have them focus on one area and do it best, and then release a new site for the other areas to do those the best.
Navigation is a little confusing.
I think most of the advanced options are there, but it takes a little getting used to here. For example, if you click the DVD section, you can only browse by full DVD title. I was under the impression that you could not browse by scene, but that's not the case. If you hit the "all" tab (which obviously shows all their content), then you're browsing by scene (same goes for a keyword search). I think it'd be a little clearer, and easier, if they had some sort of filtering option or link, even while in the DVD section for instance.
Though they have a whole photo section here, there are no actual photos. They're all just vidcaps unfortunately.
Most of this content is non-exclusive of course, especially since a large chunk of it comes from straight DVDs. The amateur and HD sections, I have no idea about.
It's a pain in the ass that the HD and amateur content is only available with a premium upgrade. Not many sites have this tiered billing setup, so I hate paying more for extra sections whenever possible.
They have a mobile version of the site up, just in case you have a membership and want to check it out from your iPhone. It's actually setup to be usable from most phones and portable devices these days including Android, the iPad, and more.
There's a lot to see here, with lots of updates, but hopefully you're not too picky.
Skin Video's biggest selling points are the large collection and multiple daily updates. From there, it gets a bit more hazy. The content is pretty generic, and a bit of a mix as well with both DVD and amateur content available. The upgrade fee kinda sucks, and it's an odd pricing setup to offer. The rest is just okay - the search is nice to have, but could be better for the DVDs; the quality is okay, but even the HD videos could use a small bump up. Thankfully, the price is right for the most part, and you can get a lot for your money here. It's not perfect, but they provide porn on the cheap, so it's worth a look if you're not too picky.
