Vivid Video started in 1984 and has, since then, ruled the proverbial porno roost. Not only is Vivid home to the biggest and boldest pornstars to ever grace the small screen (think Janine Lindemulder, Jenna Jameson, and more!) but it also hosts celebrity sex tapes, awesome porn parodies, amateur swingers epics, and much, much more. Can one of the most trusted names in porn still live up to its huge reputation or has Vivid's moment at the top been and gone? Mr. Pink aims to find out!

Vivid review | Mr. Pink's Porn Reviews
MrPinks.com review date - 08/01/2016

Overview:
Few adult entertainment companies are as well known and widely respected as Vivid Video. Having long led the mainstream US industry into new realms of sexual entertainment and expression, Vivid forged a bold new style of porn parody, made the celebrity sex tape an international talking point, and made superstars of Jenna Jameson, Kim Kardashian, and Tera Patrick. At its online base, Vivid presents its best works, from the latest parody effort Avnegers Vs X-Men XXX to stolen celebrity sex tapes, from amateur swingers fucking their way through the deep south to legends of 80s porno doing their best in SD features, and much of it comes to you looking better than ever thanks to Vivid's digital wing. Teasing would-be members with the likes of Skin Diamond, Jayden Jaymes, Allie Haze, and the legendarily busty Christy Canyon (to name but a few), the big V also promises everything from educational, instructional movies to mother-daughter tag-team blowjobs, thick black asses getting creamed to deepthroat compilation movies that'll have you busting in no time. A Vivid membership runs you $33.97-a-month for full access to the extensive archive of porno riches. Although hardly inexpensive, Vivid is easily one of the more appealing mainstream porn sites, a legendary studio if ever there was one, and one Mr. Pink's aims to fully, intimately examine.

Pros:
Vivid's archives are split into nine main categories: Vivid Movies, Celeb, Parodies, Classics, Alt, Ed, TV, Vivid Girls, and Casting. Parody films like Avengers XXX and the awesome Chyna-starring She-Hulk appear alongside fellatio instruction films, porno classics of the 70s and 80s, swinging grandmas hosting orgies, fantasy flight attendant fucking, POV pornstar-boning, and all kinds of well-budgeted mainstream porno.

Many Vivid movies are now delivered in High Definition video streams that play smoothly and fluidly within your browser window. Peaking at 540p from 1080p sources, many recent Vivid productions offer good, strong detail, clear sound, and convenient viewing on all connection speeds. Photo galleries aren't as common as videos here, but when online, they do look good even in modest resolutions.

It's always great to find a company repaying you for your patronage with a slew of bonus content, and Vivid does exactly that by opening up a third-party archive of immense proportions; there appears to be well over 3,000 bonus clips and movies available!

Vivid has been in operation for over twenty years now and, as a result, hosts on its website an archive of 1,279 scenes and counting. New material arrives here quite often, but not on a strict regular schedule. Bonuses galore help keep you busy, though, with more than 3,000 extra vids online. Membership fees are usually a bit steep here but now, thanks to Mr. Pink's, you can buy your way inside for just $19.95.

Cons:
None of Vivid's provided videos can be downloaded, only streamed in your browser window. This means you're only paying for temporary access, not the ability to save and curate your own Vivid collection for convenient viewing at your leisure. In order to watch this content you must pay to remain an active member.

Access to the world of wanton debauchery and captivatingly intimate couplings that is Vivid Celeb has not been included in Vivid membership packages. If you want to watch Kim K suck the seed from Ray J's dick or Farrah Abraham pretend she's not badly acting her way through an actual porno, not a sex tape, you'll have to sign up to Vivid Celeb separately.

Those viewers after the latest and greatest mainstream porn will find some of it here at Vivid, but they'll also find themselves wading through page after page of movies dating back ten or more years. These "classics" can make for pretty incredible viewing (given the right cast and premise), but they can also remind you of how far we've come.

With a name as big as Vivid's, it's genuinely surprising to find this site a bit of a mess, layout-wise. Page design focuses on colorful graphics that don't bring a whole lot of useful information your way and the navigation system doesn't allow for tailored, customized browsing or searching. Vivid is in need of a redesign.

Conclusion:
Vivid can't rest on its legend completely. Today, Vivid's official membership site delivers an update stream mostly filled with golden age classics, not fresh productions. The exceptions to this are porn parodies, which seem to arrive three or four times each year with five or six scenes in tow. When new content does arrive it doesn't usually hit 720p HD resolutions, settling for 540p streams that only just make it into HD classification. The range of porn here is quite impressive: Phil Varone's swingers series, golden age and 90s classics, amateur casting sessions, standard hardcore romps, lesbian orgies, and steamy couples sex. That said, much of the content can be found through other video vendors, sometimes in 720p HD, leaving Vivid with a bit of a fight to maintain its influence and importance in this ultra-tough porn industry today. Bringing 1080p streams, a better constructed website, and more exclusive content would be a great move. Throwing in the pseudo-stars of Vivid Celeb sure wouldn't hurt either.
