One of the original, top-shelf magazines has developed into a stunning website over the years and is now available for $29.95 per month. Membership includes access to the content from 18 hardcore sites that gather together over 11,900 videos and 4,500 galleries. With new, amateur models to established stars, hardcore to solos, lesbians to group sex, there's something for everyone in a member's area that has been redesigned and is updating.
There's a history behind Hustler which has now been documented in a movie. Started by Larry Flynt in 1974 to advertise his strip clubs, Flynt grew the original newsletter to a magazine reaching over 3M subscribers in the 80s. It was known as a more low-brow version of Playboy and Penthouse and gave us more of a raw edge in its depictions of naked women. Now, however, it has grown to encompass hardcore and, of course, has its own website. More than that, it has its own network of 18 sites, and that's what you're joining when you sign up.
We regularly pop back in to see how Hustler is doing, and since our last visit, some things have changed. There's still the horny hardcore and solo content, the videos and streams, but now we've got a sleek site that's easier to navigate and that holds only the better quality content. It looks like they've done some weeding as there were 15,000 + videos in August (2020) and now there are 11,953. Perhaps some of the older, grainy deadwood has been filtered out, but what's left is a massive collection taken from 18 sites. Members can access them one at a time or wade through the sea of content on the index pages, streaming and downloading as you go.
The content includes newbies at Beaver Hunt where it's all about amateurs and girls next door at Hometown Girls. There are known pornstars in the 4,202-strong model index too with Keisha Grey, Natalie Starr and Aaliyah Love among members' top favourites, and you're able to search through great body shots to find lists of each girl's movies and galleries. You will find these top girls and their amateur counterparts in themed sites such as Asian Fever, Anal Hookers and Hustler's Lesbians, and a great array of girls of all ages. Hottie Moms and Bossy Milfs give us some older, glam porn babes, while Daddy Gets Lucky and Hustler's College Girls give us 20-something youth and beauty. There is a trans site, Too Many Trannies, and the popular Hustler Parodies for some fun-and-cum scenes to lighten the mood.
Throughout the collection, you find decent viewing options, though only around 450 are in full HD, with the rest offering SD playback or 720p HD. Taking the latest offering, starring Phoenix Marie in 'Monster Cock Junkies #6', I found three download options. 720p, 360p and 270p, which at least gives mobile users plenty of opportunities for viewing and saving. Streams run in the same choices of resolution, and downloads are in Mp4 format. Movies run for an average of 20 minutes each, and some start straight into the porn while others have more of a 'reality' feel and a setup.
Originally, Hustler was about photos, and there are 4,565 image galleries in your members' area right now. These also range from solos to group sex, with images taken during the making of the films, and some being simple photoshoots of glamorous models clothed, stripping and naked, so there is plenty of variety. You will find various numbers of images per set, with good online viewing options and zip files, and images came down at 1,500 x 1,000 px.
Members can rearrange content on index pages, and looking at the most recent scenes, I see that updates have been coming in every other day, which is an impressive update schedule. Movies are now shown with their images on the same viewing page, and in some cases, there are up to 400 of them. That, with the range of standard to HD quality, shows that Hustler hasn't lost sight of its origins and continues to give us raw hardcore, glamorous stars and newbies and plenty of banging porn for our membership.
You're able to rearrange content by how popular it is and when it was added, and in a few other ways to help you sort through the extensive collection, and there's also a detailed search page. With each of the 18 sites viewed individually, you can always spend time on one, travel through saving what you want and then start again on a new site. Alternatively, it's easy to search and view the entire collection, though it's going to take you a long while. Films, Photos and Models are found in their own sets of index pages, and although there's not a lot of info with the models, there are often descriptions of scenes and other details on video pages. I had no navigation issues, and it wasn't hard at all to find the kind of content I wanted to see.
Members can also get interactive by rating the girls, scenes and images, and you're able to save videos and solo pics or galleries to a favourites area and build your own collection. Video pages come with a function where you can blackout the rest of the page while streaming, a place for you to comment, and linked tag words so you can follow specific themes or niches through the full set of content. So, the bottom line, is, Hustler's an easy members' area to navigate and has all the standard features you need to make the most of its pages.
Signing up is simple enough, though there is a pre-checked cross-sale to MetArt on the join page to look out for. There's a $1.00, two-day trial that recurs at the standard $29.95 per month, but a 30-day trial at $3.99 that also recurs at $29.95 per month. However, a note tells us that trial memberships only have limited access. You might want to consider the three-month option at $59.85 (a standard price) or the annual deal at $119.40, also a standard price for a large network. Those memberships are not limited access.
Hustler has grown from an advertising newsletter of the 1970s to one of the porn world's top network of hardcore and lesbian sites, and that's what's on offer here. Top stars, newbies, niche sites, themed movies and great quality photos, it's all available at reasonable membership prices, and updates are coming in every two days. You'll find an easier site to manage than the old days, simple streams and downloads, plenty of interaction and, of course, Hustler's famous, glamorous porn.
