Velvet Mag Review by Maggie Velvet Mag

Intro

Velvet Mag is the website of Velvet magazine, a well-known and well-loved adult magazine specializing in beautiful women in hardcore scenes. Here members get to enjoy all the galleries and the videos that drive fans wild.


The Pros

  Large collection!

Velvet Mag has content dating back to 2005, and in that time they've put together a large collection that includes over 1,050 galleries and 315 videos. I was impressed to find so many videos on a magazine site! There's really a lot to keep members happy, and a new gallery and video are added to the site every single week.

  Good navigation tools.

With a site this size, you can be sure they need powerful tools to keep everything organized. The advanced search tool lets you search by any combination of categories, keywords, and date. Photos and videos can be sorted by date, name, and popularity. If you prefer to browse just the content from one site, you can do that, too. It's a big site but getting around isn't hard at all.

  Entertaining original collection.

All of the material on Velvet Mag is original. They shot it all and you won't find it anywhere other than the hard copies of their magazines. There's a great variety in the scenes here, with everything from A cups to G cups, Middle Eastern models, interracial, twins, titty fucks, and even "meaty pussy lips". It's a nice mainstream mix that hardcore fans will love.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Photos can be downloaded in zip files.
  • Some newer videos have some good viewing options. Each scene is offered as both clips and full-length scenes. The clips play as wmvs in 2 or 3 quality settings. The full-length scenes have those same wmv options along with a Flash stream in 3 quality settings. There's also a full-length iPod download, as well.
  • Good quality photos. I didn't put this as a major pro because I can't say I was blown away by the quality, but all in all it's a very solid collection with good-sized photos and sharp videos.
  • Members of Velvet Mag get access to the entire Swank Pass network of sites. 10 sites are included, with lots more wild hardcore action.
  • Readers of The Best Porn can join Velvet Mag at a special discount price of $20 a month. That's a nice savings off the regular price of $30 a month!

The Cons

  Older content quality lacking.

They've got five years of material here, so you can bet that the older scenes aren't as sharp as the newer ones. The movies play at around 800k and are quite grainy. The photos are smaller and not nearly as sharp. With a site this large that has been around this long, it just comes with the territory, although there are some scenes here that look really dated and must have been shot well before 2005. Just keep in mind that not all of the scenes are up to today's standards.

Minor Negatives:

  • There are some member's area ads. They really clutter up the site and detract from the network's own content.
  • Plain design. This is some kind of site script that I've seen many times before so the actual layout of the pages is a bit repetitive. The actual look of the site is pretty plain. It's more function over form.
  • The video viewing options are inconsistent. Some of the scenes have iPod and Flash options, but the majority are wmv only. They really mix them up, too, so there's no telling what any given scene will offer.

Bottom Line

A solid and entertaining hardcore collection.

Velvet Mag is a solid join for fans of hardcore pornstar photos and videos. There really is a lot to enjoy here and the discount price along with network access make for a very good value. I'd love to see even sharper videos but what they have definitely does just fine. All in all, it's a good package that is worth a look for hardcore fans.
