It doesn’t have the catchiest or the most relevant name—in fact, part of what draws me to this website is the question, why is it called Tube8? Is it wordplay on a sneaky call to action to ‘Tube It’? Does the number 8 have any significance?
We may never know. What we can prove, however, is that this website is one of the premier destinations on the internet for quality pornography. As one of the websites that are owned and operated by the same team behind PornHub, here’s what you can expect.
In terms of design, Tube8 follows a fairly standard format. It sticks to a simple color scheme and displays a variety of videos from the moment you enter the website.
The landing page is divided into two sections. In the first half of the page, you are provided the top videos of the moment, sorted by location. The second half is dedicated to a collection of featured videos for the day. In this area, you’re treated to a potluck of different videos spanning several categories; some of them are in HD, produced by professionals, while others have clearly been produced by beginners in the industry. Either way, browsing through this section can be part of the excitement of visiting the website. You get to explore tons of videos, which is great for when you’re feeling a little adventurous.
One feature that Tube8 stands out for is its Categories section. This website has covered all of the standard divisions of the porn industry, and then some. It has a sizable collection of hardcore and other niche content, so if you’re interested in dipping your toes in some more advanced pornography then this website is a good place to start browsing.
However, note that the list of categories available to you varies depending on whether you are in the straight, gay, or shemale category. The site still has some way to go in terms of finding content across the gender spectrum, but it makes up for it by providing quality visuals in what it has been able to reach.
You have the option of browsing Tube8 in three different ways.
Your first, and perhaps the most popular option, is to simply visit as a guest. You have tons of HD content that you can browse through. However, you will have to click through the occasional ad and even with the selection of videos that are available to you, there are still other premium visuals you will not be able to access.
If you’d like to be a bit more involved, then you can sign up for an account. An account gets the privilege of interacting with content and other users through comments, votes, and shares. Furthermore, you are also allowed to download videos.
In case you want to sign up, I would recommend setting up your inbox to avoid spam or to create a new email account entirely. This is not just to ensure your safety but also to avoid having to receive spam emails.
Lastly, you can choose to become a Premium Member. In this case, you won’t be getting a membership solely on this website— you’ll be paying for a PornHub Premium. If you aren’t sure that it’s the right fit for you, the website offers a weeklong test run. Premium Members are granted access to exclusive content that others do not have. Which includes the following:
• 1080 HD videos
• VR pornography
• 4K movies
• Full-length content
One more compelling reason to sign up for Premium would be the complete removal of ads. Imagine surfing through the website without having to worry about accidentally clicking or tapping in the wrong areas. You can put all your focus on finding the right video, immediately.
Tube8 has a vibrant, sex-positive, and secure community. Users can upload their own content, which provides an advantage in two ways: it empowers sex workers that are just starting out (given, of course, that they have produced the video ethically as determined through website screening processes) and it adds to the variety that you can choose from.
It’s not fielding anything outstanding for the porn industry. Tube8 is your standard website, with the controls we’re all used to seeing. However, as a partner website under the PornHub network, you can rest assured that this site has passed high standards for the production and release of pornography. It is also worth noting that there is a lot of variety here in Tube8, which is a strong selling point of this website. If you’re feeling a little adventurous in bed and want to take your time looking across several options before you settle on a video, then this is the ideal website for you.
