Penthouse Review by Vanessa Penthouse

Review by Vanessa

Released Feb 24, '12 , Written Feb 10, '12

I'm certain you've all heard of Penthouse Magazine. And just like everything else these days, they also have a website. is where you'll find more than 400 Penthouse Pets of the past and present (from 1973 on), as well as plenty of bonus galleries, behind the scenes, videos and tons of extras for $24.99 per month. All updates are logged and dated, and something new is added daily. For all your favorite Penthouse Pets online, there's no denying that this is your one-stop-shop. And now even more excited, is even offered in 3D - so get out those cool glasses and prepare to be entertained!

The Pros

  Large Archive of Penthouse Content.

Every Penthouse Pet is featured here from 1973 on and can be browsed by date (year then month), or by name in alphabetical order. In total there are more than 1,300 models (and 453 Pets) that appear on this site, some of which are online exclusives. You'll also find more than 3,695 galleries, 2,170 Penthouse video scenes, and plenty of extras. As a bonus, archived live chats are offered along with plenty of extras.

  Great Quality Content & Viewing Options.

The newest image content (2004-2005 on) is offered in 5 quality formats and as large as 4000 pixels - they look awesome! There is some inconsistency throughout, however, and older sets come in at a meager 640x480 pixels, but that's to be expected. Zip files are also offered for the sets. The videos are offered in streaming format, with filmstrip navigation, plus a WMV, MPG, MP4, and mobile download option.

  Great Site Design.

Site design is smooth offering plenty of options no matter what your pleasure. Models are offered in alphabetical order with the Pets in a separate text color to distinguish them apart. You can also browse the Pets by year. Video and image galleries are broken down into categories and a search feature is offered at the top of the page. The options are nearly endless here.

  Multiple Daily Updates.

Just this week alone 21 new scenes & 7 new image galleries were added. It's incredible but the actual number of updates has increased since the last time I was here to review

Other Good Stuff:

  • A cool new feature here are the 3D videos. Currently there are more than 367 scenes at this point. They also offer some kind of cross-eyed thing, or parallel viewing option where you're supposed to focus your eyes differently. Either way, these entertaining videos can be viewed on your computer or on your TV if you have a pair of 3D glasses lying around.

The Cons

  Older Video Quality & Viewing Options Are Not as Great.

Older video quality could use some vast improvements. Streams only go as high as 500k-700k and there aren't enough format or quality options. Videos are broken down into parts without the option for a full-length download. Also, older images are small and not the best quality.

Minor Negatives:

  • I would have benefited from a more expansive search feature and wished there was bio/content information for more of the models/sets.
  • Not all of the latest scenes being added offer HD specs. These days more consistency is expected.
  • Old live chats are archived but no new ones appear to be taking place any longer.

Bottom Line

Penthouse fans will enjoy the amount of magazine spreads & online exlcusives. is the official Penthouse site and if you like your monthly dose of Penthouse Pets and other online exclusives then this is your place to get it. Newest image size and quality is awesome and the HD video specs great in addition to the cool 3D scenes. All in all this is a good source of content and the layout does a pretty good job at showcasing it. Obviously this is a must join for big-time fans of Penthouse Magazine.
