Do you want to stream full porn movies at Bang.com? That has to be the domain score of a lifetime, am I right? It’s quick, punchy, straight to the point, and tells you everything you need to know about the site before you ever even visit. Fuck, the people of Bang studios really lucked out with that one. It really makes you wonder if they are able to live up to the high expectations that a name like Bang sets up for a premium pay porno site.
Well, let’s take a look, shall we? From the moment you log into the members’ area, you are immediately assailed with an ad. Alright, not off to a great start, Bang, I’m not gonna lie. You already have my fucking money, and you want more of it? That is fucking bullshit. No, you aren’t getting any more of my money. Nor are your fucking partners. Just bring me to the supposedly great porn that I’m already paying for. Okay, whatever. Just click “bring me to the members’ area” and ignore it, I guess.
Wait! Don’t click into the members’ area quite so fast. In smaller, easy to miss text, you’ll find “don’t show me this again.” Yes. Click there first. Well, I guess that option almost makes up for the fact that you are advertising to me on a fucking paysite. At least you grant me the option to only be advertised to once. Fine, I’ll allow it. I have seen much worse in terms of ads on pay similar paysites before.
Keep scrolling down and you will find a section titled “Bang Prime,” which I believe is meant to be something similar to Amazon Prime, in that Bang is providing its members with content made by other production studios. This is pretty cool, in my opinion, and a feature that I have yet to see on any other premium site. It’s always great when a site gives you plenty of options to mix things up and explore different content, especially since each studio tends to have its own niche.
Scroll down a little further and there is another enormous promotion. This time it is for Bang’s newest series, Pretty and Raw, subtitled, “Pretty babes get a taste of RAW hardcore sex.” Okay, at least it’s not an ad for another site. But, it is still pretty fucking frustrating because it is huge—we’re talking the full size of a normal web page—and constantly playing clips on a loop, so it slows down the rest of the site a little bit. But, whatever, keep scrolling.
The next section of the home page consists of today’s featured videos, and, below that, you’ll find a “because you watched…” section. I think that is a nice touch, especially since these sites can be massive and often not super easy to navigate at first. So, I always appreciate it when a site can recommend content to me based on my taste, so I don’t have to spend hours sifting through everything that they have on the site.
It’s not like Bang is a small site. Not by any means. They boast 122,037 videos on the home page (with a counter tracking how many of the grand total you have watched, which is kind of a fun feature). I wish that Bang gave its users a little more in the way of navigating all of these videos. The only options you have in the site’s menu bar are “Videos,” “B! Originals,” “Prime,” “Channels,” “Porn Stars,” and “Live.” Nothing in the way of a comprehensive search or a directory of categories (at least that is easy to find).
Too often in “premium” porn videos I feel like the cameraman is more concerned with shooting the set than the fucking. Or they will linger on one angle for too long (or, conversely, switch angles too frequently). This is not the case with Bang videos, though. The camera works each angle and position for just the right amount of time before switching to something new. This is a tricky balance to strike at times, so, as a connoisseur of pornographic material, I would like to applaud the Bang team for having excellent instincts.
On the left side of the screen, in addition to a list of channels, you’ll find tabs for your favorited videos, liked, history, watch later, and your playlists. And I suppose the category filtering is done for you through the separate channels. But, even still, it seems odd that you don’t have anything available in the way of tags.
I never knew how much I appreciated tags until I visited Bang and had to get on (and get off) without them. They just make everything so much easier and better organized. Once you click into the video, sure, there are tags for you to explore from, but it just seems like they should also be accessible on other pages.
To Bang’s credit, however, regarding user interfacing, etc., they do have their own cam site filled with super sexy models ready to please your every desire. As well as a site dedicated to amateurs and homemade content. Sadly, though, these features require extra registrations and upgrades and are not included in the standard Bang Prime membership.
But, then again, maybe that is something that would only be of such interest to me, being a hired geek of the written word and all. You degenerates, I’m sure, could give a fuck less about a porn sites’ journalistic merits, and for good reason, you just came to cum! Well, lucky for you, there’s plenty of reason to cum to Bang.com—hundreds of thousands of videos from a broad range of lesser-known (but still great) studios, and plenty of original content as well.
Sure, the site could have been designed a bit better, but, hey, if it gets the job done, I’m a happy fapper. And Bang.com certainly does get the job done. Happy wanking, fuckers!
