The United States is one of the largest pornography consumers in the world, so the fact that there’s an adult site called “Naughty America” should surprise no-one. According to PornHub Insights’ 2019 Year in Review, the US is the number one source for traffic on its site by a long shot (with Japan trailing far behind). So, really, it was only a matter of time until a studio took the hint and named itself after porn’s biggest fan. But with power comes responsibility so if you choose to have the biggest in the game in your name, you better live up to the hype!

What is NaughtyAmerica.com?

Naughty America is fast establishing itself the go-to site for technologically advanced porn consumption. Launched in 2001 under a different name—SoCal Cash, a name now used by a junk car and home buying business in Los Angeles—NaughtyAmerica.com adopted its current name in 2004. It’s apparently a nod to the “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” promise written into our founding document.

Since then, Naughty America has garnered attention both from the porn industry (which has reliably thrown the site nominations and awards at the AVN and XBIZ awards) and viewers alike. In the past six months, the site has drawn over 8.25 million visits.

Is Naughty America free?

In order to enjoy the extensive library of Naughty America videos, photos, VR scenes, and all else the site has to offer, you’ll have to become a paid member. One of the upsides is that the cost of membership is unlikely to break the bank. When you think about all the quality content that you’ll be getting for as little at $7.95 a month, you’ll realize this membership practically pays for itself.  Don’t believe me? For less than $2 you can get the sweetest appetizer you’ve ever had: a three-day trial to the site and all its goodies!

Naughty America membership perks

Unlimited access to thousands of 4K HD porn videos and high-resolution photos

The Naughty America site hosts over 11,000 videos, with 6,000 of those (and counting) captured in stunning 4K HD. Forget the grainy and blurry amateur clips, with this kind of definition, you’ll be able to count the hairs (or lack thereof) on any body part you like while supporting seasoned cast members and amateur newbs. As the site is in a state of constant updating (with regular updates a couple times per day), you’ll never run out of content to satisfy your cravings. 

For viewers that prefer a little more still-action, you’re in luck! With every video on the site comes a handful of accompanying high res photos, just in case your partner is a light sleeper and you forget to charge your AirPods late at night.  

The site supports VR, 3D and Hologram capabilities

Naughty America does not play around when it comes to innovation and pristine content delivery. Not only does the site provide you with hundreds of 180-degree VR videos, compatible with Google Cardboard, Oculus Go and Rift, Samsung, and Playstation gear, the site has clearly taken to the future of porn. Explore the site’s hologram scenes and shuffle through some of the best poses, pole dances, and ass shakes you could ever imagine. Our favorite part? The beefy AR men models (yes, I said Men!!) ready to do your bidding. This may already sound too good to be true, but don’t forget to check out the 3D scenes which are the cherry on top of the all-inclusive experience! Sift through hundreds of 3D scenes or sort by virtual character (only girls this time), users even have the option to create their own 3D pornscape! The difference between the 3D scenes and the holograms is simply the customization capabilities that the 3D landscape brings. The virtual model in the scene is somewhat customizable, you can choose her size, what action you want her to perform, and even the speed of her action. It’s a virtual paradise for the out-of-the-box porn viewers! 

The Fantasy Finder feature

This site knows excess. Boasting over 400 ultra-specific categories to choose from, not only can you do the standard scrolling through, but users can spice it up by looking for specifically tailored videos using their “Find your Fantasy” search bar. This advanced search feature will look for scenes, models, and full-length films that satisfy your needs faster than manually browsing ever could. So if you’re the type of person who knows exactly what they want, enter your ideal fantasy category and then choose the type of performer you want to see featured in the video, and finally choose where you want it all to take place. The possibilities are endless and even if your specific fantasy turns up zero results, the act of choosing and imagining it playing out adds so much to the overall experience!

Daily updates to the site’s 60+ channels

Aside from all the amazing extras that NaughtyAmerica.com offers, its library of adult content has got to be its best asset. If you’re tired of browsing through homepages only to be disappointed in a site’s lack of imagination, you’ll be pleased to know that the Naughty America site is home to over 60 channels of top-rated fantasy videos, with exclusive updates daily! Talk about setting the bar high! With Naughty America’s extensive selection of channels, you’ll be able to play out dreams of lesbian poolside romances in films like Summer Vacation to becoming intoxicated with more taboo tales like sneaking around with your neighbor in Neighbor Affair and so much more. With Naughty America, your fantasy can now become your reality.

Naughty America membership cons

Lack of diversity across the site

By the looks of its casting, this is evidently where the site didn’t employ any re-branding tactics when it made the switch from “SoCal” to “Naughty America.” With just one look at the homepage, you know what you’re in for. More of the cliche and seemingly replicated eurocentric beauty standards–skinny, blonde-haired, light-skinned ciswomen with huge tits shot by the male gaze. Remembering that in the US alone, 32% of porn viewership is female and five of the most popular categories viewed are gender and physical attribution-specific, would have been the correct way to represent a site called “Naughty America”–not by plastering it with conventionally beautiful women. 

Just to reiterate, I’m not saying that being skinny, having blonde hair, big tits, or all of the above is bad. I’m simply expressing that as a staple figure in the porn industry, those types of models will always be represented on adult sites (and all other sorts of media), so if you’re catering to the diverse audience that is America, you should reflect that variation in the porn you produce. After all, you can’t expect to cater to all of naughty America with your model diversity hanging somewhere around the 5% rate! And when I say “model diversity,” I’m not just talking about race–I mean body type, sexual orientation, hair color, gender, all of it. As previously noted, females make up 32% of the porn industry’s viewership, and the most popular category in porn for women six years running has been lesbian porn. With just 32 Naughty America videos tagged “lesbian,” (and only a couple being justly organized into the category), what the site is doing, IMHO, is losing out on an entire audience.

Lots of repeating themes, almost no kinky content

I understand that Naughty America isn’t trying to brand itself as a fetish porn site, however, it does list some popular fetish categories in its directory so it would be misleading of me to review it without critique.

If you’re looking for a BDSM category or something on the kinkier side of porn, you won’t find it here. Naughty America definitely leans on the more vanilla side of porn, sprinkling the spice in with themes of cheating (with your neighbor, your roommate’s girlfriend, your co-worker’s wife, etc.), generic fantasies (banging your physical therapist, the construction worker remodeling your bathroom, sex with your ex), and some foot fetish-teasers (I call them “teasers” because these videos usually only contain a scene or two of foot worship, instead of building dedicated full-length fetish films).

At its core, Naughty America is a trailblazer for implementing technological innovations in porn, but not so much of a grand explorer in the content itself. That being said, if you’re truly looking for only the experts in all things fetish, maybe take a look at one of these sites instead.

Is a Naughty America membership worth it?

Finally, the big question: is Naughty America worth it? My answer is, it depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a membership to a site that offers interactive, crystal clear content with some pretty porn-y storylines, then yes! it is most definitely worth it! However, if you enjoy sampling videos featuring a diverse cast, niche fetishes, and purely-amateur films, you might become overstimulated with the tech-savvy extras destined for people looking to go deep in their fantasies. 

10 surprising facts about Naughty America

For the San Diego-based studio, though, the real action seems to be in emerging technologies. Whether the hot new trend is iPods or selfie apps or virtual reality, Naughty America reliably rolls out a product attuned to the times. Check out these little-known facts about Naughty America to learn more.

1) Naughty America operates dozens of themed sites

Variety is the spice of life, and apparently one of the secrets to Naughty America’s success. It operates 42 different special-interest sites with themed content, like “My Sister’s Hot Friend,” “Naughty Weddings,” “Naughty Bookworms,”  “My Friend’s Hot Mom” and “Naughty Country Girls.” All of them operate on the same subscription basis, tailored to your particular fascination. Prices vary from $1.95 for three days, $29.95 for one month, to $95.40 for the whole year.

2) The Naughty America VR app might someday help you snag a photo with your favorite porn star

For most adult entertainment fans, porn stars are only ever accessible on screen. Naughty America is trying to push those boundaries. Naughty America was one of the first porn companies granted access to the CES tech trade expo where it debuted an augmented reality app that allows users to take simulated selfies with their favorite porn stars.

Right now, the app is under construction and features only one adult avatar. But according to the site’s technology leaders, the eventual goal is to release a product with social capabilities. “It’s fun,” Naughty America’s Chief Technology Officer, Ian Paul, told Venture Beat. “If you’re with your friends you can have her in the picture with you and do selfies.”

3) The site quietly broke the news of Tiger Woods’ cheating

Six months before tabloids broke what turned out to be legitimate allegations that golfer Tiger Woods had been cheating on Elin Nordegren, the Swedish model whom he married in 2004, Naughty America aired an incriminating interview with adult film actress Holly Sampson.

In May 2009, Sampson told the site that she had sex with Woods when she and a group of her friends entertained at his bachelor party, the New York Post reported. “It was pretty simple, straight up sex,” Sampson said, following some frankly racist comments about the golfer’s appearance and behavior. “He’s got a lot to protect himself from too.”

“He would probably die if he knew I was telling this on the internet but that’s okay, I don’t care,” Sampson added. “It was fun, it’s not like it was any big mystery.”

4) Naughty America pioneered the super high-def porn experience

Imagine, dicks thrusting out of your television screen and into your living room! In 2014, Naughty America strove to make that scenario reality, announcing that it would transition to 4K resolution in shooting its videos. This is probably not a particularly exciting achievement for those who think traditional HD makes everything look like a BBC drama. However, for those who want to see gyrating genitals in minute, fleshy detail, the move to 4,000 pixels promises to be exciting indeed.

“The closer we can come to making it feel like you’re there, the more successful we are,” CEO Andreas Hronopoulos said at the time, according to the Verge. “Our customers want to get as close to reality as they can get, without reality getting in the way.”

5) Before you knew about cryptocurrencies, Naughty America was using Bitcoin

Long before every bro you know starting buying up cryptocurrency, Naughty America had a Bitcoin payment option. Added in 2014, the Bitcoin payment feature was intended to help people “turn fantasy into reality without reality getting in the way,” Hronopoulos told CoinDesk. Shortly thereafter, Bitcoin quietly disappeared from the website’s payment page, but resurfaced in 2015, according to CoinDesk. We can likely chalk this up to the cryptocurrency’s perennial volatility, but regardless, Hronopoulos believes millennials are emphatically pro-bitcoin. Evidence suggests he’s correct.

Today Naughty America takes Credit Cards, PayPal, Checks, unused gift cards, and Crypto currency.

6) Straddles the line between porn and video game with VR porn

Hronopoulos also believes millennials love virtual reality, according to CoinDesk. As such, Naughty America was the first adult studio to strike out into virtual reality territory. In 2015, it debuted its first virtual reality porn scene: A threesome featuring Nikki Benz, Jaclyn Taylor, and the VR user. For Naughty America, the VR porn business is still booming. According to Forbes, subscribers downloaded over 235,000 VR videos in January 2017 alone.

While the numbers suggest that people are into the product, what exactly does it feel like to be having sex with a digital character in a simulated environment? According to Mashable’s Raymond Wong, the experience is uncanny and often uncomfortably realistic. “A porn star leaned in so close to lock lips with me that I recoiled back because her VR presence felt so real,” Wong recalled of his VR venture at 2016’s CES expo. “In a different VR porn video, where I dropped into a female body, a male porn star who was thrusting into ‘me’ was so up in my personal space, I swear I smelled his armpits. There wasn’t, of course, any smell.”

7) Naughty America was once praised as the “iTunes for porn”

Among Naughty America’s first technology ventures was its Adobe Air storefront. When the storefront launched in 2008, it basically functioned as the “iTunes for porn,” as TechCrunch put it. Users could buy individual scenes for $1.99 and watch them on their iPhones or, more likely, iPods because this was 2008. While a model like this is more or less obsolete in 2018, it was, for the time, a very innovative application of extremely trendy technology.

8) It counts some politically famous faces among its stars

Remember back in 2013, when serial sexter Anthony Weiner saw his mayoral campaign hurtle off the rails thanks to a string of explicit messages he sent someone who was emphatically not his wife? That young woman was Sydney Leathers, who—when she entertained a sexting relationship with Weiner in 2012—was a politically engaged and anonymous young person living in Indiana. Leathers’ life changed dramatically after she (anonymously) leaked screenshots of her exchanges with Weiner to a gossip site, and after BuzzFeed blew up her spot without much notice.

9) It helped users find their porn doppelganger

Have you ever wondered who your porn dopplegänger is? Sure, why wouldn’t you—apparently this is a popular enough query that, in 2012, Naughty America rolled out a fun feature on its website that allowed users to search its porn star database and pinpoint their facial twin.

“It’s going to revolutionize how people search porn and site content,” company president Eddie Arenas told the Huffington Post. “Plus, people have fun with it. They’ll look up celebrities—like a picture of Kim Kardashian—and their friends … It’s a great way to explore our entire library.”

Admittedly, the feature does not seem to have revolutionized content—six years later, it appears to be defunct. But according to HuffPo, the search algorithm was thorough. Unfortunately, though, it confined search options to include only its female entertainers.

10) Naughty America once had educational aspirations

An early attempt at collegiate branding once got Naughty America into hot water with a for-profit educational institution: In 2009, National American University sued Naughty America for launching its site, Naughty American University, using a logo that the former said looked way too similar to its own. (At least in its current iteration, the educational NAU’s extremely generic blue-and-white design seems easy to accidentally replicate.) At the time, educational NAU operated 16 campuses across seven states in addition to online degree programs, while Naughty America was just making porn videos for its “Fast Times at Naughty American University” series. As CBS reported, both parties agreed to drop the case just over three months after the academic NAU filed it. The “Fast Times” videos, however, live on.
