Homemade Porn vs. Professional Porn

youporn homemade porn vs professional porn videos
On May 31, we announced two new YouPorn Features, the ‘Name a Pornstar‘ feature and the ‘Homemade or Professional’ video categorization feature, both of which were introduced as a result of user requests such as those made by Person and TwistedShadow in our “What Can YouPorn Do For You?” survey.

The new features have been adopted and used by plenty of users since their inception, but in an effort to help clarify the distinct differences between Homemade Porn and Professional Porn, we’ve assembled a quick and dirty list of some of the telltale signs that distinguish one from the other (since we know that sometimes it can be truly difficult to tell the difference).

Homemade Porn

  • More often than not features just one or two people
  • Video and Sound are not production quality (varying levels of audio, lesser video quality)
  • Natural or household lighting as opposed to production lighting
  • Single stationary camera angle and/or single handheld camera (webcams common, rarely filmed by a 3rd party)
  • Usually filmed in a bedroom or other room of a house, not on a closed set (rooms look “lived in”, not staged)
  • No professional make-up or wardrobe, people are au naturale
  • No story line, no intro, no outro, just pure, unadulterated sex (unscripted)
  • No intro/outro splash screen

Professional Porn

  • Can feature anywhere from one to dozens of performers in a single video
  • High Video and Sound quality (balanced audio levels, HD or Near-HD video quality)
  • Professional lighting (no shadows on performers, all angles and shots clear and well lit)
  • Multiple, changing camera angles (usually filmed by a 3rd party)
  • Filmed on a closed set (can still appear to be in a house but will look staged, not “lived in”)
  • Professional make-up and wardrobe, pristine, perfectly groomed bodies
  • Usually some form of story line, intro, and outro (scripted)
  • Usually a graphical intro/outro splash screen

Hopefully these tips will help you to more easily find the quality of free porn movies you want, and of course help us to better categorize YouPorn videos by Homemade or Professional production quality.

Once we’ve accumulated enough user submitted categorizations we’ll add the ability for users to search videos based specifically on their Homemade or Professional Production Quality. To learn how you can help us categorize videos, check out the “New YouPorn Feature: Name That Pornstar” blog post.
