If you’re going to watch porn on your smartphone, make sure you do it right.

If you visit free porn sites, you’ve probably watched it on your phone at some point or another. As smartphones become better and better media devices, the private computer in your pocket has become the tool of choice for most porn viewers. According to Pornhub’s 2016 annual report, 61 percent of its traffic was made up of smartphone users, with an additional 11 percent coming from tablet users. Only a fourth of Pornhub’s audience was actually watching on a desktop computer.

When it comes to adult content, the future is mobile porn. But just because you’ve watched free mobile porn before doesn’t, that mean you’ve done it right. Here’s our guide to taking in porn mobile as like an adult.

The best free mobile porn sites

After an exhaustive amount of research, we have compiled the five best sites for mobile porn viewing. This is by no means a scientific list, but each of these options provides its own unique charms and user experience.

1. Pornhub

Pornhub isn’t dumb. It knows how people are viewing its site, and its mobile experience is incredible. The site has been optimized for smartphones, giving users all the navigation options they’ve come to love in a neat, uncluttered package. There’s also Pornhub Premium if you’re a subscriber, and PornhubLive if you’re a fan of cam girls.

Dropdown menus make navigating to your favorite section of the site a breeze, whether that’s MILF videos or Pornhub’s Sexual Wellness Center. Attention to detail is part of what’s made Pornhub the biggest adult site in the world. 

Android users will have a great experience on the site’s mobile page, but they can also download Pornhub’s app right here. The app is incredible, with built-in password protection, infinite scrolling, and the ability to combine categories while looking for content. No matter how you choose to view, Pornhub is the leader in mobile adult content at the moment.

2. Reddit iOS Android  

Don’t want to use your browser but still want the world of internet pornography laid out at your feet? There’s no better resource than Reddit. Both Android and iOS have apps that not only unlock NSFW Reddit—one of the most extensive collections of amateur porn in the world—but also support multiple accounts, video, and photos. If you’re going to use the Reddit app to get your jollies off, we suggest creating a secondary account just for your porn viewing. That way you don’t someday accidentally upvote “(CENSORED NAME OF A PORN VIDEO BUT OH BOY TRUST US IT’S A GRAPHIC DOOZY)” on the account all your friends know about. (If you need a place to start with Reddit porn, this guide will get you started.)

3. Tumblr iOS Android

There was a period when finding porn on Tumblr was a nightmare, thanks to Yahoo’s distaste for adult content. Thankfully, those days are long gone. You’ll still have to do some tinkering to fully unlock the Tumblr app’s potential, but it’s now a viable option for free mobile porn videos. Porn on Tumblr is similar to Reddit, just with more chaos and searching. Deep fandom communities have built up around various kinks and fetishes, with users creating plenty of custom content to go with the GIFs, videos, and erotic stories. Curious about what Tumblr has to offer? Here’s a guide to Tumblr porn.

4. Literotica Android

One of the best ways to make sure no one finds the porn on your phone is to keep pornographic images off your device in the first place. That’s why Literotica is such a great option. With 250,000-plus erotic stories from every conceivable angle (and some that are frankly inconceivable), there’s always something here to tickle your fancy. Android users can download Literotica’s app to browse their favorites. While there’s not an iOS counterpart, because Apple is a killjoy, Literotica’s mobile site is optimized for iPhones. It’s not as snappy as the Android app, but the mobile site is still a glorious way to experience the best free erotica online.

5. BetterFap

With all due respect to Pornhub, BetterFap is the best porn option for mobile phone users. Billed as the “Pandora of porn,” BetterFap’s site is optimized for swiping, making it the rare porn site that’s better on a phone than it is a computer browser. Here’s how it works: When you go to BetterFap, you either sign in or use the site as a guest. Users select if they’re straight, gay, or more. If you select more, the site asks you for your gender preferences and goes from there.

Once you’re ready, BetterFap presents you with a series of videos, GIFs, photos, and clips. If you like it swipe right if you don’t swipe left. As you swipe, the site gets a better view of what makes your engine hum, ensuring a better experience each time you use it. Drawing its content from a wide array of porn sites and Tumblr blogs, BetterFap puts the world of amateur porn in your hand without ever needing to search.

6. XNXX

If for some reason you don’t want to use a private browser option or any of the sites listed above, XNXX provides a tremendous mobile porn experience with a decidedly subtle name. This Flash-based site has free porn videos that load quickly, with easy search tags and sections in addition to all the options in its drop-down menu. XNXX: For when you want to watch porn on your mobile device, need a safe site, refuse to use a second browser or an incognito mode, and want a site with a name that doesn’t sound like porn when it autofills your address bar. That’s not a great slogan, but it works for us.

How to watch free mobile porn

Now that you know where you want to start, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. Because we use our phones for everything these days, from sending email to playing music at parties, it’s essential to guard yourself against accidental embarrassment, not to mention viruses. Here are some best practices for watching mobile porn.

1. Use a private browser

Have you ever been pulling up a website on your computer while someone watches only to have “Pornhub” autofill in the address bar? It’s a nightmare that was all too common until the introduction of private browsing. You can spare yourself the same embarrassment by using a smartphone browser with an incognito or private browsing mode. In our tests, Chrome worked better than Firefox, but both apps provide secure private browser modes that will forget about what you were doing as soon as you close the app. Don’t risk it. Use a private browser.

2. Use a VPN

While private browsers can protect you from people you know seeing your kinks, a VPN helps keep anyone else from see your browsing history. Planning to have a little personal time on your phone while using a hotel Wi-Fi? You’re going to want to use some protection. We recommend VPN Unlimited. With a $29-lifetime license that covers your smartphone and computer, you really can’t beat the cost. This is a lightweight way to make sure your privacy is protected when you’re sharing a Wi-Fi signal with folks you might not know.

3. Get a screen protector

This is self-explanatory. If you have a waterproof case, make sure to wash your hands and handset when you’re done. Other people are going to touch your phone. A screen protector makes it easy to keep clean.

4. Don’t download anything

With the exception of site-specific apps, like those mentioned above, if an app looks too good to be true, it probably is. The Android store is littered with poorly designed apps promising the world but mostly delivering a handful of pictures at best and viruses at worst. Also, don’t get a false sense of security from using iOS; mobile viruses exist for the Apple ecosystem, too. Don’t download anything, and beware of sites that give you pop-ups.

5. Get some earbuds

Years of sneaking around on computers have taught you to watch porn with the sound off. But it’s so much better when you can actually hear what’s going on. Throw in some earbuds and make the most of the experience. Or maybe just use one earbud… That way you still won’t be caught off guard.

How to watch porn on Tumblr on your mobile phone

As we mentioned above, the native iOS app for Tumblr still comes defaulted to “Safe Mode.” Turning the feature off so you can watch some free mobile porn is easy. Here’s how it works.

1. Go to your phone’s Settings app and search for Tumblr. Rather than jumping menus, it’s always easier to just use the search function.
