With hundreds of thousands of titles running the gamut of niches, some of them dating as far back as the '70s, there is something for everyone here.
Complete review published on 04.25.2022
Are you the type who can never have enough porn? Then Hot Movies ought to be right up your alley. Their archives hold over 200,000 films from over 3,000 different studios, and they range from the mainstream to the rare and the bizarre. If their tour page is even half accurate, members can expect a real pay-per-view motherlode. I can't wait to find out.

Upon my arrival at Hot Movies nostalgia and arousal intertwined to provide a very warm, very welcoming sensation. The membership area blends a classic design style with just enough modern tweaks to provide the impossible: a user-friendly retro browsing experience. The main menu has it all covered, from basics like movies/clips to more fine-tuned methods of browsing, e.g., by studio or porn star — each, mind you, having a wide array of sub-menus of its own. But if that doesn't sound like your cup of tea, fret not. You can change the style of most any page on the fly, abandoning the site's signature classic aesthetic for a more modern navigational approach. And all of this is interspersed with provocative cover art for porno films, new and old alike.
With over 3,343 studios alone, the top 10 including the likes of Elegant Angel, Kink.com, and Reality Kings, there truly is something for everyone here. Of course, with so many, you're inevitably going to find lots of smaller operations in the mix, which isn't necessarily a bad thing seeing as how that can translate to awesome niche material.
Looking at their model index, which houses an absurd amount of stars, I can't help but notice they are keeping up with the times — babes like Adriana Chechik and Dillion Harper, sure to satisfy anyone with classic porn star fantasies, and Bailey Jay is always waiting in the wings for those after a gal with a little something extra . . . okay, a lot of something extra. I also like how they took the time to provide detailed stats, racy photos, and, last but certainly not least, a lengthy "porn star biography." Did you know that Kacey Kox started porn at the insistence of her boyfriend? Or that Justine Jolie was a graffiti artist?
It is not uncommon for a video-on-demand site to have a large stable of studios, but it's always nice when they can provide you with something you just can't get elsewhere, right? Currently, the archives hold just over 3,000 such titles. In some cases that means exclusive access to whole libraries from specific performers.
But with the promises of hundreds of thousands of videos at the gate, you may not be surprised by a percentage of those puppies being exclusive. One benefit of membership you may not have gathered from the tour, however, is access to an ever-growing collection of retro pornographic classics.
The Rare & Out of Print collection currently holds just over 300 titles, some dating as far back as the early '70s. True to the name, it is chalk full o' seldom seen retro smut. I found myself ogling bizarre titles I never knew existed, glad that I had enough minutes to enjoy them all, and glad they took the time to round them up for me. And that is precisely what they did.In many cases, the site had to track down the few remaining dusty reels of these old gems, then painstakingly remaster them frame-by-frame. But it was worth it. They look magnificent.
Oh, and you don't have to worry about your V.R. gear getting dusty here. I counted 337 titles, many from top flight studios like Badoink VR and VR Conk. You can usually get downloads supporting Gear VR, Vive, PlayStation, and various mobile formats, too.
And not to keep harping on the content, but I was thrilled at the inclusion of so many fetish and bondage films. There are just under 7,500 bondage titles, over 10,000 in the Femdom category, and 2,200 under the Erotic Flagellation category. There is even a WTF? category with over 200 films. But don't just take my word for it. Spend some time watching midgets fucking pregnant broads, then off to the wonderful world of amputee porn you go.
Of course, before you view any of this content, you're going to have to figure out how you want to pay for it. One great thing about this site is that it is very flexible in that regard. You can purchase packages of minutes if you want to go the pay-per-minute route, but they also allow 7 day rentals for around 5 euros, and the ability to purchase lifetime streaming at 9-10 Euros. There is a lifetime streaming + downloads package, too, but be be sure to have your wallet handy, cause that one usually runs you double.
Perhaps the best route for a maximum bang-to-buck ratio, however, is the Studio Rentals option. For a reasonable price, you get that 7 to 30 days of full access, but instead of just one scene, you get to pick and choose from a studio's entire archive. And in the case of studios like Digital Sin, that means free rein over 1,335 hardcore movies. Thirty-seven studios are already on board at the time of this review, including Vivid, Devil's Film, and Homegrown Video.
Honestly, the only strikes against this site are a lack of 4k HD content, and perhaps a somewhat antiquated looking layout. I actually think the latter is just fine, and is nicely offset by the addition of loads of modern browse-tools. The former is, admittedly, a bit worrisome, but with the addition of so many VR scenes lately, I reckon a flood of 4k movies is just around the corner. Although, unlike with the VR scenes, I hope 4k and beyond is available for streaming as well. I'll certainly be keeping my fingers crossed . . . .
With hundreds of thousands of titles running the gamut of kinks and fetishes, Hot Movies seems like a true porn Shangri-La. Well, at least for the pay-as-you-go types. On that note, payment options are fairly flexible here, which is always nice. You can pay by the minute, but you can also rent movies for 7 to 30 days. And if you're planning on a marathon wank session, you have the option of renting an entire studio's library. Oh, and fans of retro porn owe it to themselves to check out the Rare & Out of Print section.
