Happy Birthday YouPorn! Looking back at 9 years of free porn.


In honor of YouPorn’s 9th birthday we’re taking a trip down memory lane to where it all started. Launched on August 26th, 2006, YouPorn was the first tube site on the Internet. Do any of you remember this logo?

In 2009 we moved one step closer to the YouPorn you’ve come to know and love. We now offered recommendations and top rated videos as well as the ability to search videos by orientation.

In 2011 we gave you all the opportunity to party with YouPorn on the Are you Hardcore? Tour. We filled up our bus with some of the biggest names in the industry such as: Phoenix Marie, Lisa Ann, Vanilla Deville and Courtney Cummz and for almost a month our tour bus traveled across the USA throwing kick ass parties.

We also took one giant leap into the future with the launch of 3D porn. Finally, another use for those red and blue 3D glasses.

2012 was a big year for YouPorn and probably the biggest layout change to date. Modernizing YouPorn we gave you even more control with the addition of the Category tab and the launch of Channels. The ‘beta’ next to the logo was also finally removed.

This year brought a lot of exciting things to YouPorn including the release of the official YouPorn Anthem by none other than Brian McKnight.

In yet another porn industry first, YouPorn was made available on Xbox! You and your favorite porn site could now be closer than ever.

In 2013 YouPorn officially became part of the Pornhub Network which resulted in the Network bar being added to the site.

This year included the launch of many community features including our advanced search, collections which gave our users a whole new way to save their favorite videos, and an in-depth pornstar database.

The most recent updates to YouPorn included an updated flat version of the logo and welcoming Thumbzilla to our network.

In 2014 we made some updates to the mobile site which allowed us to give you UNLIMITED video views on mobile. The 5 videos a day limit was gone for good! World Cup Fever also took over YouPorn as many Europeans turned to YouPorn to console themselves after their team was eliminated.

With the foundation of Team YP, YouPorn tossed its hat into the eSports arena with the creation of our very own DOTA2 team. Our roster would soon expand into the competitive Smash scene and welcome Bizzarro Flame to the team.

Today: August 26th, 2015, YouPorn turns 9! I hope you all celebrate this momentous occasion by rubbing one out to your favorite site. It’s been a great nine years with more adventures to come.
