Naked Sword is a one-price porn-streaming hub offering more than 20,000 scenes from 5000 feature-length DVD titles and 200 different studios. These include entries from heavy-hitters like Raging Stallion, Bel Ami and Corbin Fisher, side-by-side with dozens of other producers of hardcore porn of every variety imaginable. Naked Sword is also a high-quality producer of original porn content, with a new series for members to stream every few weeks.
Although the video streams only, and the viewing quality of individual scenes can be highly variable (depending on the producer and the age of the production), Naked Sword is great value for your porn dollar.
Naked Sword’s tour presents a good overview of its inventory. The long tour homepage has a good selection of preview clips, and the site’s search and browse features make it easy to find movies, stars and studios. There are 30-second preview clips and images for every DVD carried by the site. While these give potential members an excellent idea of exactly what’s available, there is a limit of 3-5 preview clips, after which any attempt to play a clip will send you to the join page.
The Naked Sword homepage is displays a large selection of new, classic, exclusive and popular titles. Use the horizontal navigation bar to delve into the stars, studios, and themes, which include more than 150 genres and sex acts, or choose "Just Added" to get recently added scenes and titles. You can sort by newest, most watched or alphabetically by title.
On each movie's page, you'll find a plot description, cross-references to models, studios and directors, and the option to view individual scenes or the full-length video. One thing they don't include is the release date of the DVD.
The Men and the Action
What kinds of men are featured on Naked Sword? The answer is: every age and type. It doesn’t matter if your tastes run to tight-assed twinks, major porn stars, uncut Euro-sluts, or raunchy bears; you’ll find the men you’re looking for -- and more -- on this site.
Naked Sword is notable for its catalog of titles from top studios like Falcon, Raging Stallion and Lucas Entertainment, though many of these are older releases. You'll find amateur-style bisexual romps, wonderfully cheesy vintage era titles and plenty of bareback releases, too. There are many titles in every category, so whether you prefer tender love-making or intense fetish play you’re sure to find many hours of material to satisfy.
The viewing quality of the Naked Sword videos ranges from very good to just average, depending greatly on the technology used to shoot the video in the first place. Some of the videos are well shot, edited and lit, but lack sharpness.
Naked Sword has an archive of over 5,000 DVD titles, for a total of around 20,000 scenes . Eight "new" titles are added daily but "new" can include older titles reintroduced to the public site from the archives. You can only stream the videos on Naked Sword; there are no downloads allowed.
Videos are available to stream in MP4 format in a neat custom pop-up player. Most play at a default size of 850x480 or 640x480 pixels with bitrates around 1500 kbps (though some of these are actually in HD, up to 1920x1080 pixels, 4000 kbps). The player is resizable and also has a quality setting (gear icon) that indicates the "target" quality and the "current" quality. We sometimes found it was not possible to increase the quality from the default.
Screens: The site design allows for viewing on all types of devices. Some of the older films aren't suitable for very large screens.
Naked Sword’s large selection of studio releases, its specialty and niche content, plus the frequent exclusive scenes, make it a destination for the porn-hungry web surfer looking for lots of variety. The site is well organized and the best quality videos look great, though most have average viewing quality. While the videos stream only and much of the content is older, Naked Sword is still a great choice for fans with varied tastes.
