Shemale Yum Review by Duke Shemale Yum

Review by Duke

Released Jun 16, '11 , Written Jun 10, '11
Intro

Shemale Yum states that it is "The Internet's Longest Running Transsexual Site". Now a lot of porn sites make boastful statements on their guest tours however these guys can back it up. They do indeed have content that reaches back to the mid-1990's and they continue to update through the present day. The site is from Grooby, a company that operates a whole host of tranny sites that are high quality. I suppose Shemale Yum could be tagged as their flagship site because of its long running history and it's a general shemale themed site with both hardcore and solo model action.


The Pros

  Exculsive Tranny Content, Solo & Hardcore Action.

Grooby is a company that does features exclusive content and with Shemale Yum they've been at it a long time. The theme here is a general one without any specific focus other than the shemale concept. The action includes a mix of solo and hardcore in both the photo and video sections. The trannies are a great mix of different ethnicities, ages, and body types which is exactly what you'd want to see from a large site like this.

  Massive Archive of Videos, Pictures, & Models.

Sheer quantity is a real strength here as they have over a thousand models, hundreds of thousands of pictures, and a few thousand video scenes. On the guest tour they have a little "Site Stats' content count ticker that highlights this and they are accurate numbers.

  High Quality Newer Videos, Photo Gallery Zip Files.

Video quality was stepped up a couple years back to WMV 1280x720 2400k so that's a solid level and they look good. They also have a couple other medium and lower choices. The photos on newer galleries come in around 1280x850 which is also decent. I like that zip files are always available whether you're looking at a newly added gallery or the older sets from over a decade back.

  Steady Updates, Years of Archives, Date-Stamped Content.

This goes hand-in-hand with the quantity as they have been growing the collection for around fifteen years. They add content once per week however it usually includes a couple items on eight different models each time. That averages out to one new gallery or video per day which is quite solid. All content has date stamps which is definitely helpful considering the blend of newer and older content that's here.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Navigation includes some helpful tools like a model index, search/filter tools, and a 'My Portfolio" favorites section.
  • Most model pages in the index have at least some written biographical info including where they are from or where they were born.

The Cons

  Video Formats & Options Vary, Lower Quality Older Content.

With content going back so long the types of videos and quality levels are going to be different between the newer and older stuff. Once you get past the recent two or three years the formats go to AVI and Real instead of WMV and quality dips to around 640x480 or sometimes lower. Same goes for the pictures with the oldest archives images from the 1990's being around 640x480 at their smallest.

  Navigation Could Be Enhanced, Especially Niche Categories.

Things are a bit rough-around-the-edges on the browsing tools such as the niche categories and search/filter tool. The niches consist of one of those niche cloud list and the search/filter tool is pretty basic in terms of appearance. They could fine-tune these which would make things more user-friendly but I suppose they are really more focused on content production.

Minor Negatives:

  • Download speeds were somewhat sluggish for me at around 300-350kb/sec. This can vary from user-to-user however our previous TBP reviewer noted similar speeds which backs up my experience.
  • Video stremaing on the newer movies is in Silverlight format which is similar to Flash however some users may not have it installed since not many sites use it. The quality on the stremaing is only average/low and the files load while playing.
  • The monthly price here is higher than most paysites and there are some join page cross-sells.

The other
  • Other content features inlcude a message board, comics, and member feedback/comments on the shoots.

Bottom Line

Shemale Yum has more than a decade of exclusive tranny content with solo & hardcore action.

Without a doubt it's the long track record of Shemale Yum and its massive archive are the main positives here. I also really like the fact that they have more than a thousand models with a great mix of ethnicities, ages, and body types. The main weakness is the varying content quality and formatting which comes with the territory for a site with content going back so many years. All told it's an impressive entry in the tranny fetish category that includes both solo model and hardcore sex.
