To view videos at Tube8, you only need to head to the site and click a thumbnail. Then, you start the video as you do with any online streaming service. After a short advert (and an initial pop-up advert), the stream runs, and you can use all the viewing features such as full-screen and ‘lights out’ mode. There are no free downloads.
The Live Sex link in the Tube8 menu leads to Live HD Cams (straight), Streamen (gay), TSMate (trans). These are free to view, but you must register and pay to indulge in private chat and cam sessions.
Does Tube8 feature porn stars? Yes, because most of the content comes from established porn sites who employ pornstars. Among them, though, are newbies and amateurs, but there is not a lot of content that is 100% self-submit.
Porn Hub and its network are currently working on a new verification system, and once that is in place, you should be able to upload your own content and see genuine amateur porn.
However, there are plenty of community features, such as comments and likes, and you can add some ‘about me’ information on your profile, though it is a pretty basic profile. The profile area is where you find your favourite channels, videos and models. It’s not a place where you can search for other users and see their detailed profiles.
Yes. It is also very easy to sign up and register. To get the most from the site, you will need to verify your email address, so make sure you use a real one. You won't be bombarded with spam, but you can opt into the newsletter and other notifications. There’s no need to register before you view, as the site is 100% free to use, but registration brings some extra benefits. There is also an upgrade where you can take a premium, pay-per-month membership. Here are some more details:
Yes. Tube8 offers an upgrade that’s the same as Porn Hub and the other networked tube sites, and one upgrade gets you the benefits across all of their sites. The prices may show in your local currency and vary because of that, but they are reasonable prices, and there is much to gain in return for your subscription.
Note: The gay area upgrade shows as ‘Premium’, costs $14.99 per month (or $143.88 per year) and offers the same benefits as the straight upgrade. That, however, is called Tube8 VIP and costs only $79.99 per year.
Included in the Tube8 VIP upgrade are:
Tube8 comes on near the top of the tube site review top lists because if the amount of content and the ease of navigation. It’s regularly updated, covers all three main genres and categories of porn, and offers streaming services for free. The videos, though, are edits and there to point you towards membership sites and their sign-up pages, but there are some longer videos with full scenes and cumshots. There is a lot of advertising unless you go premium, and although there are interactive elements, it's not a place where you get to know other users. You're there for the free porn, and at Tube8, the sex vids are definitely 100% free.
