I'm confused, and I don't mean sexually

NoFauxxx.com is a unique website in that it contains primarily queer content that will appeal to many. Passion, chemistry, and eroticism are all concepts that transcend gender on this site and it is accomplished with an artistic eye. Unfortunately, the amount of content is somewhat limited and the site is not always user-friendly.

What is NoFauxxx.com?
Nofauxxx.com is the oldest running queer porn website on the internet and features a little something for everyone including alt, gay, lesbian, straight, trans, kink, and BBW content. Started in 2002 by Courtney Trouble as a personal project, the site has blossomed into a gathering place for artistic, sensual porn created mostly by women.

What does the site offer?
The website offers several areas of content to explore including tabs for Videos, Photo Sets, All Recent Updates, Shop DVDs and Digital Downloads, Foxes, and Members Area. In each of the areas of the website, you will find a diverse collection that is sure to please many different tastes. The best description I can come up with is indie porn. It’s artistic, alternative, and absolutely not what most would consider mainstream. The diverse content includes heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, queer, kink, fetish, BDSM, solo, couples, group, multiple ethnicities and diverse body types. You name the genre and there is likely an example to be found on the site. Having said that, I would say that the content is strongly queer. The heterosexual and homosexual (gay male) is only a fraction of the total content. To NoFauxxx’s credit, the site continues to add new content and expand beyond being a simple niche site.

Videos: At the time of this review, the site contained 74 videos with the majority being queer, lesbian, and trans couples. There were also some solo scenes and rare examples of heterosexual couples (2) and the same homosexual (male) couple. The video length averaged from 15-20 minutes, with the shortest one I found just 3 minutes long. The filming overall is very good and the technical quality is somewhere between amateur, homemade porn and a large studio production. The videos appear to be mostly filmed using a handheld camera and in natural settings with natural lighting. While this adds a sense of realism, it also can result in a lack of variety. Some scenes featured a single camera angle, some had awkward shadows, and some had unsteady, moving cameras. I particularly liked that the videos featured an artistic quality very different from mainstream porn. It was a nice change to see different body types, tats, piercings, and especially a lack of heavy makeup. I didn’t like that there were no tags or descriptions to easily find content I was most interested in. Members also have to click on two links to access members only videos which I found inconvenient. I also wish that the length of each video was readily available. I like to know how long a video is before I view it.

Photo Sets: This is the true gem of NoFauxxx.com. There were 170 photo sets available and the number of photos per set ranged from just one to hundreds. The sets feature mostly couples and single models, although there are a few groups available too. Again, I would say that the vast majority of the content would be classified as genderqueer. The artistic quality is excellent and varied ranging from studio shoots to natural settings, model shoots to scenes from videos, black and white/sepia to full color, all of which are highly erotic. I wish the number of photos in each set were available prior to actually looking in the set.

All Recent Updates: This section features a blog style timeline with all new content added to the site. I liked that each new entry generally had sample pictures/videos. I also like that only a few updates were listed per page. Some blogs will have one huge running timeline of content which can slow the page while loading. Unfortunately, not all of the entries contain a description. Despite containing “all” updates, I found content listed in the Members Area not listed here.

Shop DVDs and Digital Downloads: On this page, you have the option to purchase some of the content found on the website including digital downloads (11) and DVDs (15). For some reason, the content is not all visible on the screen in “list” mode, the default presentation, but can be seen if you change to “grid” mode. There are only limited items to purchase, but it’s nice to have the option if you find something you particularly enjoyed on the site.

Foxes: This section features a small biography for 44 of the actors featured in the videos and photo sets. I like that the page includes links to additional content featuring the particular actor in both video and photo sets.
Experience
(continued)

Members Area: This section is very similar to the Recent Additions tab with a few differences. Strangely, this section does not include all new content and there were discrepancies between the two areas. I would think that this section would truly contain all new content as a courtesy to members. Also, unlike the Recent Additions section, this is one huge page listing all entries. As you can imagine, it can take a few minutes for the entire page to load. Many entries had no description whatsoever, even fewer than in the All Recent Additions section.

How much does it cost?
Currently, the site offers the following pricing options:

5 Day Trial for $9.99
14 Day Trial $17.99
1 Month Pass for $28.99 (recurring)
2 Month Pass ($5 off) for $52.99 (recurring)
3 Month Pass ($15 off) for $71.99 (recurring)
6 Month Pass ($50 off) for $125 (recurring)
Lifetime Membership for $200 (includes a free DVD, limited time offer)

Personally, I would have a hard time justifying a long-term membership for the site. While I think it has some nice content, there just does not seem to be enough. You could easily go through all there is to offer in 2 weeks or less. Based on the Members Area, it appears that new content is being added at about a rate of 3-4 per month.

Anything else?
I found the site to be glitchy, slow to load, and generally confusing to navigate initially. Switching between different pages and loading videos can be very slow and frustrating. I encountered some links that were broken and videos that did not load at all. After logging into the Members Area, the site did not seem to always recognize that I was a member. When clicking on a video selection, I would be directed first to the general public screen that contained a short clip. To view the full version, I had to click on an additional link and load another page. Some pages with older content seemed to be using an older web page template as the tabs offered were not the same. In general, I would say my experience navigating the site was a negative experience and affects my opinion of the site, despite the quality content. I’m unlikely to use a site I find frustrating but if you can get beyond that issue, you may enjoy NoFauxx.com.
Follow-up commentary
Since my original review, the website has been renamed Courtney Trouble's Indie Porn Revolution. The site looks pretty much the same and there is certainly new and updated content. The site is worth it if you have an interest in queer porn. However, be aware that the quality and functionality of the site is not up to the standards of more mainstream porn sites. Pages continue to be slow to load and glitchy at times.

    That's not a lot of content for the price. I might have been willing to do the trial just to see if the navigation was good. Bad navigation is the worst.

    I'm confused...what exactly is Eden selling? The membership to the site?

    It's quality content, just limited. And I'm not sure why there is a price associated with the website. Thanks for reading!
