Since casual flings, one-night-stands, and coming into contact with anyone you don’t live with isn’t safe while there are active stay-at-home orders, people are turning to quarantine porn as a release. 

According to sex-perts, online porn trends, and Kinsey Institute research fellow Justin Lehmiller, there’s a higher percentage of people masturbating more frequently or having more sex right now (with whom we hope to presume is their live-in partner). But at the same time, there is also a higher percentage of people reporting that they’re not engaging in any sexual behavior at all. The “movement at both ends,” according to Lehmiller, can be explained by psychological factors.  

With nothing to do but practice social distancing at home all day for months on end, it can send your sex drive into disarray–depending on the amount of anxiety you have and how you choose to cope with it. If you’ve generally always engaged in sexual acts to release tension, you might notice that your libido is working on overdrive and you’re watching more porn. However, if you have been bogged down by the weight of the pandemic or the stress brought on by the consequences of it all (like many of us have), you could very well find yourself on the other end of the spectrum not interested in anything sexual.

In the case of those masturbating more, it looks like their time is being spent well online. Since April 30th, more than 8.2 million searches containing the words “quarantine” were documented via PornHub Insights, and more than 7,300 videos about quarantine were uploaded onto the site. Since March 19th, the site has seen a peak increase of 24.4% significant traffic changes compared to an average day, and daily uploads from verified models have increased by more than 30%. In other words, a lot of people are personalizing their porn consumption to reflect real-world events–I.E. streaming and downloading videos titled “Quarantine Isn’t So Bad with Her,” “Apartment Quarantine Orgy,” and “Please, I Need Dick, My Pussy Is Literally Dripping Wet in Quarantine.”

And not only have people been engaging more with online content, like COVID-19 quarantine porn and live cam sites, but there has been a significant increase in texting exes. According to a survey by Lehmiller, one in five people has reached out to an ex while in quarantine. Most of the ex-texters justified it by saying that they “wanted to check in and make sure their exes were safe and healthy” while some said that “they were testing the waters for a hookup.” This begs the bigger question: is quarantine making us throw caution to the wind and express our sexual needs, or lack thereof, honestly for the first time in a long time? While the verdict is still out on that front, we might as well point you to the best porn sites to release your quarantine related stress…or not. Whatever you choose to do, don’t text your ex!

Where to find quarantine porn

Brazzers

If you know Brazzers, you know the site’s unofficial motto is “go big or go home,” so obviously it went hard on the quarantine porn. When you enter the site’s main page, you’re greeted with banners of spotlight models and videos organized by the most recent additions to the oldest, what’s popular this week, and upcoming videos. Some of the best features on this site are the “watch later” tab in the home bar, the promo tab for great deals on other websites you may not know exist, and the abundance of categories offered. All the models on site are exactly as described, too. So you’ll have a near-exact idea of what to expect before you even press play.

Pornhub

Let’s be real: with over 42 billion site visits in 2019, 90% of you porn viewers out there have probably reached orgasm on Pornhub at least once. You’re familiar with the layout and product offering, and you might be happy with it, but what if there was a way to get a lot more out of the experience? That’s what Pornhub Premium reaches for–and in my opinion, achieves. The best selling point right now is the site’s free trial membership (with the option to add Brazzers access for $1 per day). The homepage’s thumbnails offer sneak previews of thousands of HD, full-length videos from renowned studios like Vixen, Team Skeet, Nubile Films, Hentai.xxx, and more. On top of that, you’ll get access to Pornhub’s library of 30,000 full-length original films. Offering the widest variety of porn on the internet, its premium subscription does not disappoint.

YouPorn

What YouPorn does really well is organize its collection of COVID-19 porn. You’ll have no trouble sorting through its categories, and you might be pleasantly surprised at the variety of unique titles. As for its content, you have the option to view clips, full-length films, live cams, and live sex in its tabs. Enjoy access to hundreds of channels like broke amateurs and bratty sis, as well as the site’s many featured and familiar performers. All videos are uploaded in HD and are available to download. In terms of free COVID-19 porn sites, YouPorn has definitely mastered the subtleties of delivering a great experience during each visit.

Vixen

When you first enter Vixen, you’ll be thoroughly pleased by the featured quarantine porn content. Due to the stay-at-home-orders, Vixen Media Group (VMG) provided studio equipment to a bunch of its performers across all its sites (Vixen, Blacked, and Tushy) in order to film and produce the exclusive and limited quarantine porn series Intimates.

All videos on the site are shot in ultra HD and feature traditionally beautiful, naturally glam models. Vixen’s content is updated every five days, so boredom is out of the question. In terms of variety, there’s no denying the quality and coherence of the Vixen site, however, that might also be its biggest downfall. While all the models are leaning on the natural-looking leg of porn, the diversification of the models is subpar. If you’re looking for curvaceous, queer, lesbian, or trans content, this might not be your first choice. With that being said, Vixen has definitely mastered the art of HD sensual content catered to their audience, so the content it does have is great! It just needs more of it.

Blacked

Blacked produces interracial content and is part of the same network that Tushy and Vixen are from.  That being said, you already know that Blacked will be jam-packed with high quality, 4k content, with new videos every 5 days. Expect to see muscular and statuesque men and curvy, supple women. The site’s only downfall, in my opinion, is the lack of diversity in casting as the majority of the women cast are white and the male performers are all black. But if you’ve been looking for interracial porn that looks like it’s been pulled straight from a Hollywood movie, Blacked.com is where you’ll want to be.

BLACKED REVIEW

Tushy

If being locked in your house does nothing to quell your thirst for sexy bottoms, you might want to turn to Tushy for your quarantine porn needs. If you can’t already tell by the name, Tushy is all about that ass. All the videos on the Tushy site are focused on brilliant booties and anal play, and producers are good at it. The site has won over 10 awards and features some of the best anal performers in the business. If you’re looking for a high-quality butt-worshipping porn site with frequently updated content, Tushy is the best place to be.

xConfessions

Oh wow, xConfessions. Created by the boss director in porn herself, Erika Lust, this site is everything porn should be. A membership includes full access to all the content on the site, as well as the ability to anonymously post your own fantasies to an online wall with the lucky chance Erika herself will develop it into an erotic short film. Other membership perks include access to all anonymously posted confessions, unlimited streaming of over 150 films, and 10 free downloads per month. If you’ve been searching for quality films that showcase women’s pleasure in a sex-positive and sexually intelligent narrative created from relatable fantasies, look no further.

Lust Cinema

Lust Cinema is another beautiful creation from one of my favorite directors, Erika Lust. This site boasts a robust selection of top tier films and Lust Originals. Once you pop open a tab, a tantalizing slideshow of Lust Cinema’s newest features engulfs the screen to display tasteful and sensual covers. The homepage’s categories are split into the latest/newest additions, movies, short series, and original content. But with over 120 films to choose from it’s easy to lose your spot (which is why we recommend opening the films that pique your interest in a new tab). One of the best features on the site is the Netflix series style of porn that engages actors over a period of short films to further a storyline. If this realistic approach to porn sounds too good to be true, add on the two-for-one deal (that’s two months of premium for the price of one) happening now for new members and it’s almost like entering a fairy tale! Plus, you can feel good about your subscription since Lust Cinema is widely regarded as one of the best shops in the industry. It’s also known to fairly employ all of its performers and strive for equitable, ethical porn.

Lust Cinema Review

Lustery

It’s exciting that Lustery is the only site on this list fully composed of couple-submitted amateur porn. I know what you’re thinking: “I don’t want to spend hours searching through poorly lit, shaky camera videos.” Don’t worry. While couples do film their own videos, they’re all in HD and most have surprisingly great camera work.

The real upside to this site (and what makes it one of my personal favorites) is getting to see real couples at work in their own homes. These videos are all so unique in the sense that there’s no set, no film crew, and tons of personality. These real-life couples have an intimacy on screen that no standard porn site has been able to imitate.

Perks to being a member are….well, everything! Membership gets you access to the videos, couple bios, your own personalized hub, and the ability to submit your own videos and join the couples club. The site presents itself like no other porn site, with a fresh color palette, sweet font, and easy to navigate tabs that will leave no video unturned. For the porn watcher who’s been searching for the most real of the real, or simply looking for completely different videos, Lustery is a must.

LUSTERY REVIEW

CrashPadSeries

From Shine Houston comes the CrashPad Series, based on Houston’s cult classic original film The Crash Pad. This series follows the original plot with all episodes based in a San Francisco apartment that’s dedicated to hosting queer sex events. In my opinion, the best feature of this site is the content. In terms of diversity and real sex, you can’t do better than the CrashPad series. The models are natural beauties in all shapes and sizes from all backgrounds, sexual identities, orientations, and races. To top it all off, the chemistry is so intense it almost feels like an out of body experience. There are over 300 episodes in the series and each episode contains its own behind the scenes footage. Members also have access to the library of feature-length films, including the original CrashPad movie that inspired the series.

In an unprecedented move, CrashPad Series features a “hide” toggle, so before you go sifting through all the glorious porn, you can choose to filter and hide videos that contain scenes with ejaculation, consensual rough sex (including choking, flogging, spitting, slapping, etc.), fisting, BDSM, anal play (anal penetration, rimming, butt plugs, etc.), strap-ons and wearable vibrators.

XNXX

With a whopping 8,602,382 (and counting) videos on this site and a community of over one million members, XNXX has established itself as a corona porn tube site separate from the rest. Yes, XNXX boasts a great collection of clips and films in every category imaginable, but, if you’re frequenting this site, its for the plethora of photos, forum discussions, and user-written sex-related stories which are all 100% free for your viewing pleasure. XNXX Premium also adds boatloads of original content, high-def videos, downloads, and no ads. RUN, don’t walk!
