Tour Promises

HomeGrownVideo.com promises over 1350 videos and 751 photo galleries, all amateur community portal, the world's largest collection of exclusive amateur content.

My Opinion About HomeGrownVideo

HomeGrown Video was one of the first sites to start producing homemade porn. In fact, they've been around since 1982 and they've won 11 AVN awards. If this isn't convincing enough for you, then the 1358 videos, 2000+ home grown streams, 751 photo galleries and daily updates might be. Yet, let's explore the site a bit deeper before deciding. After all, it's one thing to have a lot of content and another to have hot content.

The members' area looks plain, but it's well organized and suits the nature of the content. Site news is the first thing you'll read and this is followed by a list of latest updates. All the content comes with a short and full description and a set of action keywords like big boobs, creampie or lesbian for example. Just to add some extra value, the team at HomeGrownVideo also add scenes from DVDs every four days. However, they do update daily with exclusive content and sometimes add more than one movie for every update.

I always consider a site like this to be one geared to a community of kinksters and this is a huge element of being a member to the site. Members are encouraged to submit their own home videos and there is a forum with a pretty active community of like minded individuals. There is also an erotic literature section. This is filled by articles about real sex topics, there are advice blogs, book reviews and erotic stories.

When you arrive in the photo gallery you can call up small or large thumbnails to get a good look t the amateurs. You can also search by date, by category or by the name of the actor, although from the loo of the list, this feature is only beneficial for better known stars in their own (I assume) home movies or at least celebrity amateurs who appear frequently on the site (again I assume). Now, there are a whole lot of different styles of photography here. Obviously, there are lots of different individuals shooting the content and some may be hobby photographers. Expect most images to be snapshot quality with average, amateur lighting and framing. Sets can have 30 to 150 images that have different sizes, but are generally around 800x600. The pictures are usually clear and what I love is that the majority are obviously shot by real couples.

The video gallery is similar and content comes from all around the globe. Every recent film is divided into clips, but a full movie can be streamed or downloaded. Windows Media is the format and the most recent download was 2000kbps 720x480, although I imagine older films are not quite as top-notch. Still, for an amateur site, I was admittedly impressed. Again, there are varied styles. Some movies are shot by a third person, some are shot by the couple, so the camera is mounted on a tripod and stationary and some are POV movies. If authentic homemade sex videos are what you're after, then you will have no trouble getting off on these very real and candid sex scenes.

Final Verdict

For the amateur fanatic, Home Grown Video is definitely a site to consider. There's a massive amount of content and newer videos are particularly decent quality. While there are some lesbians, the majority of content features straight couples, but the international flavour of people and their uniqueness make each film absolutely different from the next. Also, since this site is all about real people, you'll find a lot of different kinks. Blowjobs, creampies, anal, interracial and even groups can be found here. All in all, it's a terrific community-based site with some very hot amateurs and action.

not only am I the owner of Homegrown Video, but I have also submitted my own home sex videos, and whoever said they had problems with downloads is probably a shill from another company trying to give us a bad name because that has never been a problem and we are very pro-active about customer service - we have a live chat literally on the main page where we interact live with our members so we couldn't be more "hands on"

The concept is perfect however the execution is poor. Not all videos are downloadables and those that are, the clips are extremely short.

Deina, is reason Homegrown, videos on the map. #88 entitled "Interracial Double Fuck" will make trusted adult movie watchers return for more. Seeing Deina, in action will break many, zippers. You've been warned! You're Welcome.

My experience was just awful. Every attempt at downloading vids froze my machine with only reboot being an option to unlock. Contacting these folks produced absolutely no help at all. Lucky for me it was a Trial Membership! Too bad cuz I luv nasty and naked am's.
