Brain Pass is a simply massive network of sites that offers over 58,000 individual videos for streaming and download. This collection spans just about every imaginable category of porn with a heavy focus among the individual collections on specific porn stars, directors, and studios. There's a lot to cover here, so let's get inside this huge members' area and get all of the details.
It looks like the folks at Brain Pass have made some changes to the way their members areas are handled since our last visit. All of the sites included in the Brain Pass can now be accessed from within a members' area called the Pornstar Network, and this is exactly where I found myself when I logged into the site via the Brain Pass tour pages. At this point, it seems that Brain Pass and Pornstar Network are really one and the same.
Brain Pass makes it incredibly easy to see exactly how much is included with your membership and when the collection updates. On the day I visited the site exactly 58,198 videos and 1633 photo galleries for the 59 included sites and this network is updated constantly. Sometimes new videos are coming every couple of hours. It looks like it averages out to somewhere between 15 and 20 new updates every single day. That's impressive! The only trouble is that a significant number of the sites no longer update at all.
As I mentioned, this is a very diverse collection that does have some specific areas of focus like porn stars, directors, and porn studios. For example, you'll find Web exclusive materials Elegant Angel here, and the network is also the home to the official sites of porn stars Lex Steele, Vanessa Blue, and Peter North. The network also offers several solo model fights, but most of these are anywhere from five or even 10 years old and no longer update. The collection of 59 sites is rounded out by some basic collections that cover popular categories like MILFs, squirting, Latinas, anal sex, facials, foot fetish, and more.
The materials here on the Brain Pass vary considerably when it comes to quality. Some of these sites have been around for over 10 years, and the materials come from literally hundreds of different sources and time periods going back to the 1980s at the very least. You will certainly find some older, lower quality materials on some of the included sites. On the upside, the new release materials here are coming at at least a decent quality level and look nice overall. Some of the new release flicks I downloaded were available at an HD quality level of 1980 x 1080 pixels but the average quality level for most of these flicks is like 720 x 480 pixels, 2000 kbps.
While the inside of Brain Pass / Pornstar Network has a nice and modern look, the tour pages seem much more dated. The tour is essentially one big long page with very, very brief previews of some of the included sites. You can click each site to see its individual tour and get some additional information that way, but a better way of previewing this completely massive collection is only needed.
The members area here has a very clean and modern look and an impressive set of tools and options. It may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but everything is so neatly laid out and self-explanatory that you'll find yourself surfing around easily in no time. Basic and advanced keyword searches are possible, and you can add in all kinds of additional attribute and requirements like porn stars to be featured in the sea, the site materials appear on, and even studio that produced it. I was really impressed with just how far you can narrow things down here. The main navigation menu is easy to use as well and provides easy access video and photo collections as well as its bland searchable model index, a list of studios available on the site, and more.
Considering the number of scenes available here and the length of time some of these sites has been online, some variation in the download and streaming options, as well as the quality, is to be expected. Some of the early video scenes here are available only in clips with a full-length option, and these often only come in a single file format and a single quality level. Newer videos have more options and come in higher quality with MP4, WMV, MPEG, and streaming Flash.
While some of the sites found in the Brain Pass / Pornstar Network have some issues with small collections, a lack of updates, and quality, this very large collection is still certainly worth your money. This is one of the largest networks on it at, they update constantly, and you can get downloadable versions of DVDs not offered elsewhere. Overall, I give it a big thumbs up, and you can sign up at our special discount rate of just $19.95 per month!
