Review by John Woole, August 23, 2018


Real American amateurs do porn. Young and older, thin and curvy. Many do porn for the first time, either with the guy from Desperate Amateurs, or with their real life partner. Candid sex scenes, straight, lesbian, and threesomes.


  • Real amateurs, lots of normal looking women
  • No scripts, you can watch people having normal sex
  • Many videos have real couples
  • Good looking HD vids
  • Over 500 movies


  • 15GB per day download limit
  • No 1080P Full HD, only 720P HD
  • Condom use in many videos (if you mind)
  • Photos section discontinued
  • On mobile a wifi / unlimited data connection is recommended, even the small videos are 0.5GB each

Desperate Amateurs has porn with real people. Amateurs from all across America have sex in front of the website's cameras.

A big number of the women here are really first timers. All shapes and sizes are represented. The age ranges from the early 20s to mature women in their 50s. There are thin girls, average ones, those with curves, as well as some BBWs. You'll see many average looking models, and there are hot girls too. There are many tattooed girls and some hippie chicks who let their pussy hair grow.

The main thing here is the movie section. Almost the entire library is male/female, plus a good amount of threesomes. There are some solo masturbation and lesbian scenes, but they're the minority.

Producing natural videos is important here. Whether the girl is recording the video with her boyfriend or fucking the guy from Desperate Amateurs, they tell them to just enjoy themselves. There is no script, you'll see real sex and real chemistry.

There are lots of oral sex—both pussy licking and blowjobs. There is kissing, fingering, oral in 69, and great amateur fucking. Lots of the girls come for real during the scenes, I have seen some squirting too.
Most scenes have all kinds of action, but there was a period in their production when recorded some purely BJ vids.

The video quality is nice for amateur content. They're good looking 720P HD scenes. Don't expect vivid colors or extraordinary looks. Most scenes are recorded in the same room. But they are nice looking, way better than most "amateur home videos" out there.
They started recording in HD in 2013. The earlier scenes are SD, but apart from the lower resolution, they look decent. You'll enjoy them if you're into amateurs.

The photos section is a secondary thing here. In fact, photo updates stopped in 2013. The archives have some good looking amateur pics, although many of the photo sets are quite small (10-20 images).

The website works well. You can browse the updates by date and popularity, there is a model index, and many search categories/keywords. Both the movies are the pics can be viewed online as well as downloaded. For all a small site like this, it has everything that's needed.
The only usability issue we have come across is the download limit. You can download or stream 15GB/day. If you opt for downloading the HD movies, this means 10 movies/day.

We've also tested the site on mobile. It's smooth and comfortable. The only issue is that there are no really small video files available. Even the smallest ones are 0.5GB each. So on mobile I recommend using it on wifi, or on an unlimited data plan.

There are many sites that claim to have "amateurs". This is one of the few that really does have them. If you want to see real sex with normal looking people (including real couples), you should definitely see this site. It has a large library, weekly updates, real sex and real orgasms. The site uses CCBILL for the payments, so cancelling your membership is easy.
