Homemade amateur porn was the most sought-after porn genre last year, according to Pornhub’s 2019 year in review. All across the world, people are yearning for that porno amateur real-real.

This kind of voyeurism harkens back to the days of ye olde VHS tapes. But what qualifies as amateur porn? And what makes us so obsessed with everyday people who are bold enough to film themselves f*cking?

What is amateur porn?

Historically, at-home porn was associated with bad sound and film quality, little-to-no plot, and occasionally clumsy but really real sex. For this, we forgave all manner of sins.

We excused grainy camera quality and sound. We didn’t need any fancy cuts or angles. We’d even tolerate the frame being blocked by someone’s whole ass.

After all, ‘amateur’ typically means that the performers aren’t doing it for the cash. No matter what, homemade porn was (and still is) pure porn gold. It’s the kind of humanity we cum for.

Nowadays, practically everyone carries a film-worthy camera in their pocket. Anyone can go online and find equipment, props, and a sea of thirsty viewers. Making good porn at home and getting paid for it is now more accessible than ever.

2020 saw a surge in porn filmed at home. Between the shutdown of all major studios, COVID-19 quarantine, and massive layoffs nationwide, self-sourcing smut has gone from a saucy hobby to a sustainable source of income.

So is there a difference between sharing your at-home sex flick and being a WFH porn star? If so, how much time and equipment is invested before it becomes “professional”? Can mainstream porn stars make porn at home and call it amateur?

We’re not home porn prophets, y’all, we don’t profess to have all the answers. One thing we do know? Trying to define pure amateur porn takes up more energy than just enjoying it. Instead, we preach the value of knowing the source of the homemade porn you love.

What you need to know about homemade porn

Amateur porn has contributed to massive changes in the porn landscape over the past few decades. The success of tube sites hosting user-submitted porn has all but upended the classic agency-to-studio business model. This shift in the industry has a wide range of effects.

Porn by the people, for the people

On the pro side, the freedom to create and post content means that performers can truly be self-employed. Aspiring porn stars don’t need an agency to represent them or wait for a studio to give them a role.

Performers also have the freedom to create content that reflects their own sexual identities. This can be really empowering to people who don’t always see themselves represented in pleasure pop-culture.

Historically, major studios cast performers and write the scripts, so they actively shape the trends in mainstream porn. The success of amateur porn had allowed viewers to determine what porn is trending instead.

Less regulation means more risk

The ability to upload homemade porn on to tube sites has its share of problems, too. Sites like Pornhub have been heavily criticized for a relaxed attitude toward pirated and non-consensually uploaded content.

This doesn’t just apply to “revenge porn” and underage content; if you’re watching porn uploaded to a platform by someone other than the owner, you’re violating the consent of all parties involved.

It can be more difficult to know if the porn you’re watching is legal porn. Going for premium memberships and vetting your website choices is the best way to minimize the risk of seeing any sketchy content.

Paying for porn and peace of mind

Having a taste for amateur sex doesn’t mean you get a watch-porn-for-free pass. As a matter of fact, paying for amateur sex films makes a meaningful impact on creators and porn culture.

Amateur porno is usually shot by the stars themselves. They simultaneously handle the lighting, framing, editing, and performance. All of the production, plus managing promotion and social media is a full-time job.

When you find homemade sex that you enjoy, follow the performers on other platforms. Supporting them through sites like OnlyFans helps them create more content (and it often gets you extra perks!)

Establishing a membership with a reputable porn site can help assure you that your money is actually supporting the performer. However, we understand if paying for exclusively verified content doesn’t feel like a guarantee.

Fortunately, homemade porn purists can visit live cam sites, where you can directly interact with enthusiastically consenting adult performers.

Where to watch porno amateur

1. Many Vids

ManyVids hosts videos and content made by the performers themselves. MV puts your hands in all of the cookie jars with access to videos, photosets, live cams, phone chats, panties for sale, and other options to support performers.

The site was founded by a sex worker, so it raises the standards of regulating content. The result? You’re free to browse the site knowing you’re directly supporting the real performers.

2. Lustery

Lustery creators Bishop, Carmen, & Lina

This site is a homemade sex jewel, featuring real-life couples who want to share their sexuality with the world. The site’s format has a similar user-submitted vibe as other amateur porn sites but with a more curated feel.

Self-proclaimed exhibitionist and voyeur Paulita Pappel created Lustery to share user-submitted homemade sex in the name of “reclaiming your own gaze”. Seeing relatable, intimate sex on the site is an empowering experience for performers and viewers at the same time.

Lustery also hosts both the POV blog and podcast, where you can get to know couples from the site. Both are also incredible sources for current outlooks on sexual health, culture, and identity.

3. MakeLoveNotPorn

MLNP creators maplesyrup

ManyVids hosts user-submitted content, so performers range in diversity. MV stars post videos that strike a beautiful balance between professional skill and homemade sex reality. This clip site is also much easier to navigate than other porn sites hosting user-submitted videos.

Cindy Gallup is the creator of MakeLoveNotPorn. She doesn’t refer to the videos on the site as porn, but says that they’re a celebration of real-life sex. Her mantra “pro-sex, pro-porn, and pro knowing the difference” blurs the semantic lines of amateur porn in the best way.

Instead of hiring performers to perform scripted sex, MakeLoveNotPorn sources real sex tapes from real, everyday people. MLNP calls itself the world’s first social sex platform, and that sex-positive attitude shines in every video.

Scroll through the curated collections like “MakeMeTimeLove” or browse the site’s whimsical tags like #giggly, #yes!yes!yes! and #procrasturbation.

Best of all, membership to MakeLoveNotPorn is free, and from there you can rent individual videos for $5 each. The only risk involved? MLNP’s content might make you want to submit your own homemade porn!

5 videos per month$10

4. Bright Desire

Filmmaker Ms. Naughty calls her site a center for “thinking porn”. The site’s films focus on the most endearing parts of sex shared by intimate partners. The films at Bright Desire aren’t just meant to arouse the viewer physically, but emotionally as well.

The site features mostly heterosexual sex and porn for women, although there are some queer videos, too. The performers are also pretty diverse with films celebrating BIPOC and mature couples having sex in lightly-scripted scenarios.

While it’s not amateur porn in the strictest sense, it has the same authenticity as homemade sex. There are also whole collections of behind-the-scenes footage, post-scene interviews with performers, mini-documentaries, and erotic fiction and more.

1 month$22.95
3 months$37.95


5. OnlyFans

The fansite model isn’t anything new, but OnlyFans is its most popular iteration by far. What makes OnlyFans so great for consumers (and, more specifically, for ethical porn fans) is how the site’s run. Sex workers create their own fan page and can set their own prices, giving models far more control over what material is posted and how they’re compensated.

On OnlyFans, performers generally run their own page or hire out a small team to help them navigate it, essentially giving sex workers far more control over how adult material is created, presented, and shared. Additionally, OnlyFans creators receive an 80 percent payout, which is particularly high by industry standards.

When you subscribe to a model’s OnlyFans, you’re essentially giving them funds in one of the most direct ways possible. The only downside is that you’ll have to subscribe to specific models’ pages independently; the best way to find them is through Twitter, Instagram, ManyVids, and other social media sites.


6. Pornhub Premium

Pornhub is practically an after-dark household name. Because of its popularity, creators who post their own work on the site can make a name for themselves. While it’s a great place to find new talent, it may not be the safest place to watch amateur porn videos.

Previously, the tube site has a very un-sexy reputation for shifting the responsibility of regulating content onto anyone whose video is posted on the site without consent. In December 2020 the site eliminated unverified accounts and disabled downloads, hoping to curb non-consensual content from being posted to the platform.

7. True Amateurs

“Hot Chick in Fishnets Fucks Boyfriend Outside” featuring LeoLulu

True Amateurs has a familiar site build shared by large-studio production outfits (think other MindGeek properties like Brazzers or Reality Kings). It’s clean and easy to navigate, with simple category selections that focus mainly on acts and physical characteristics.

The site takes submissions as well as scouting new talent, so it hosts a more polished version of amateur sex than a user-submitted tube site. Amateur porn superstars like LeoLulu and NoFaceGirl have contributed content, bringing with them their signature style and authenticity.

Unfortunately the site favors cis-het straight couples almost exclusively, and there’s no real body diversity across the board. Gaining a sense of security and star-power means you lost some of your DIY and IRL stylings.

8. Mofos

Mofos is a search result leader in amateur porn, and possibly has the largest library of homemade porn videos available. This site has better quality production and more scripted scenes than most homemade sex videos. Also, you might enjoy seeing some of your favorite porn stars in their amateur days here.

Unfortunately, there’s very little body and gender diversity at Mofos, and the site still capitalizes on fetishizing racial tags. If Mofos is your jam, consider following Mofo’s BIPOC amateurs on other platforms like OnlyFans.

1 month$29.99
3 months$19.99/mo.
1 year$9.99/mo.

9. Amateurs Raw

If you want one of the largest video collections for amateur porn lovers, check out Amateurs Raw. The site (a part of Naughty America) features aspiring young porn stars in their first casting films, often filmed with the homemade sex vibe.

The site caters to a limited representation of body shapes, ages, and sex acts, so expect a slim selection. If this amateur site rocks your world, membership comes with a lot of bonuses. Subscribing also gets you a wider selection of Naughty America partner access.

3-day trial$1.95
1 Month$24.95
1 Year$71.40


10. HUMP! Film Festival

Sex advice sage Dan Savage has been hosting this fan-submitted dirty little film festival since 2005. Traditionally, the festival only toured major cities in America, but due to COVID-19 lockdowns, the films’ creators gave their enthusiastic consent to live-stream the 2020 event.

Each film is five minutes or less, and submissions feature queer and polyamorous stories, outdoor sex, BDSM, and other medleys of smut film favorites. HUMP! has its own film tropes, too, and extra credit is given to creators who include little “easter eggs” so you know which films are made specifically for the festival.

The transition to streaming is a gift to anyone not living in a major city and those of us who are new to HUMP! In addition to extending the dates for the 15th annual festival, Dan and the HUMP! crew are hosting some greatest hits screenings from previous years, so there are lots of opportunities for a fresh HUMP! experience.

Are you looking for a special occasion amateur porn experience? HUMP! film fest is a creative and sexy idea for an at-home date night and a great tradition for sex-positive lovers everywhere.

HUMP! Tickets$25

Live cam sites for real home porn

Scripted porn is great, but have you ever just chatted with a real, live amateur porn star and directly tipped them to do hot stuff for you?

Camming is the safest way to directly support homemade sex without risking a violation of ethics. Bonus? Your content is much more customizable!

1. CamSoda

CamSoda model KiimThompson

Featuring a cotton-candy colored home page, CamSoda is filled with endless previews of real-time performances. Models choose their own relevant hashtags to put in their profile, helping users find what they’re into.

The site is known for its inventive menus, allowing for model-set options or pay-to-play casino-style games. Or you can just shell out the performer-set number of tokens and control the interactive Lovense toys the site supports.

Models are tipped in tokens, and payout is about $5 for every $10 worth of tokens. You can see performers’ social media or give them gifts from their Amazon wish lists straight from the stream, too!

50 tokens$5.99
100 tokens$10.99
200 tokens$20.99
550 tokens$49.99
800 tokens$69.99

Looking for an online live cam superstore? Chaturbate boasts the most “new performers” of any live cam site, the most traffic, and wide diversity in performers. Basic porno amateur categories are featured on the site’s home page, and hashtags are easily searchable.

Each room features menus created by models, plus viewers can use tokens to purchase exclusive pictures and video content. For every 100 tokens ($11), the model will make about $5, and you can also access their Amazon wish lists.

Jasmin has been providing the internet with interactive camming experiences since 2001, and attracts an experienced array of cam models. The home page shows teaser clips of live rooms, and from there you can interact in the chat until you’re ready for a private show.

Count on a lot less peep but a lot more show for your dollar here. The performers are some of the best in the biz, but they only perform when they’re being tipped.

A model might not be doing anything special in an empty room, but tipping can bring in a flurry of traffic and liven things up. Your model will receive between 30% and 80% payout for a job well-done.

27.99 credits$35.99
79.99 credits$67.99
112.99 credits$97.99
178.99 credits$157.99

4. MyCams

Hosting a similarly pay-to-play vibe with a wider category search, MyCams is great if you have a particular fetish. Models from all over the world can make it happen for you in real time, so long as you’re willing to tip for it!

You can follow models who cater to your specific home porn desires and get notified when they come online. Models can receive a payout of 30-60% of earned tokens you spend on your brand of homemade sex.

200 Tokens$19.99
550 Tokens$49.99
900 Tokens$74.99
1,875 Tokens$149.99
3,775 Tokens$299.99
7,575 Tokens$599.99

Like any DIY project, venturing into amateur sex without the guidance of a professional requires a little extra responsibility. Online sex work provides financial freedom to countless amateur porn stars.

Doing your homemade sex homework gives you the power to cum knowing your dollar supported some of these entrepreneurs. Consider it an investment in another person’s pleasure as well as your own.
