Hardcore glam porn with European porn stars, from the Nathan Blake Production studio. Lots of anal and interracial in 4K UHD quality.

Review by Wayne Gregory


  • Top European porn stars with a glam look
  • Unique blend of glamour and rawness
  • Great looking videos, a good number available in 4K UHD
  • High quality photo sets
  • Now part of a mega-site, Adult Prime, you get full access to all of it


  • Only 2 updates per month (the parent network has daily updates though)
  • Some of the updates seem to be older scenes which were not shot in 4K
  • No videos available for very slow internet connections
  • No model index

Elegant Raw was created the well-known European director, Nathan Blake. Naming the site Elegant Raw is truth in advertising. Blake's style is definitely hardcore but with a heavy dose of glamour thrown into the mix. His style uses high production values, including excellent camerawork, lighting, sound, and post-production editing.

Elegant Raw is not a standalone site anymore. Blake's site has been added to the European mega-site, Adult Prime recently. This is great news for porn collectors because not only do you get access to Blake's unique style of scenes, but you now get access to one of the largest porn networks on the internet. We've posted a review of Adult Prime as a network, but this review is intended for Elegant Raw alone. Blake's site and shooting style is sufficiently different to warrant a separate review.

As noted above, the production and post-production at Elegant Raw is all top-tier. Even with the oldest scenes on the site, which date back to 2014, this is the case. It should be noted that the network, Adult Prime, is more recent than 2014 but these older scenes have been migrated from Blake's site to the new network.

The scenes really do combine in elegance with a rawness to them. While there is the element of glamour here, I wouldn't call the scenes glamcore because the sex itself has that rawness to it.

It's no surprise, given Blake's reputation, that the models who appear are a who's who of European porn. If you name just about any A-list European star, you're likely to find multiple scenes with her here. Famous models such as Anissa Kate, Amirah Adara, Veronica Leal, Alexa Tomas, and Jasmine Jae are a common sight here.
Big tits are very common too, but you'll find models with smaller breasts as well. Also, although all of these models are beautiful, they are also made up and dressed to accentuate that beauty here.

Elegant Raw has a good amount of content, 321 videos and 276 photo sets were available at the time of the review. It's updated with the addition of two new scenes each month.

On Adult Prime, Elegant Raw is described as offering a lot of scenes for fans of the interracial niche. I wouldn’t dispute that because of the 321 scenes currently on the site, 128 of them feature interracial sex. But, in my opinion, Elegant Raw could also easily be billed as an anal-themed site since it has 231 scenes focused on that niche. Obviously, there is some overlap between those two niches.

Each of the scenes is offered in a minimum of three resolutions for both streaming and downloads. Please see our Videos table for specific details on the available resolutions. Of note, the bitrates offered on the scenes are much higher than I'm used to seeing on competitor sites. As a result, the scenes look great in any resolution.

Approximately 25% of the scenes offer a 4K resolution. Those have a staggering 30,000-35,000 kb/s bitrate. Needless to say, these look incredible. While 4K is offered in some of the older scenes they are more heavily skewed towards the newest scenes though even the newest scenes don't always offer 4K. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be any way to sort for 4K scenes alone but that isn't a big deal because the thumbnails will have the 4K logo in them and they are easy to spot. Even the oldest scenes in the archives are Full HD and look good.

I found download speeds and streaming to be fast and stable. I had no issues with stuttering streams or failed downloads. I use a download manager to help and had no problems using one on this site. Even the smallest resolution videos are 0.5-1.0GB. That won't be a problem for most people, but if you have a very slow internet connection, it might be.

Photo collectors will find a lot to like here as well, the site has amazing quality hardcore photography. Not every scene offers a photo set but most of them do. Photo resolutions are around 4000x2667 with some minor variations in many sets, but still close to or better than that. The photos are available as either singles or downloadable zips. While I give the average number of photos per sat at approximately 80, a reader should keep in mind that there is a wide variation in set sizes. You will find photo sets with 40 photos, but you will also find photo sets with 400 photos.

The site is very easy to use, and it works well on all devices. After you log in with your pass, you get to the Adult Prime network's members area. You can browse the entire network's updates, or select Elegant Raw from the Studios menu. There is a clean log of the updates, with a dropdown menu to filter by keyword. All the usual tags are here but this long list also contains many obscure tags not seen in many other places. This vast list of tags makes it very easy for a subscriber to sort for his or her favourite interests.

Something that often annoys me with large networks like this is that even when you are on a specific channel, the search function applies to the entire network. I'm happy to report that this is not the case with Elegant Raw. When you are looking for a scene with Nathan Blake's unique style and a common or obscure tag, you will be directed only to those scenes on the Elegant Raw channel. Of course network-wide searches are also available. One thing that's missing though is a model index.

While this is a specific review of Elegant Raw, if you are reading this and considering a subscription then I highly recommend you also need our review of the overall network Adult Prime. To call Adult Prime a mega-site is an understatement, and you get access to all of it. Even if you are only here for the Elegant Raw scenes, Adult Prime is so large that I'm sure that you will find many more scenes more that interests you.

The bottom line for me is that Elegant Raw is an excellent site that I highly recommend. It has a big amount of amazing European hardcore porn with gorgeous models. The drawback is that updates have slowed down. They only add 2 new updates per month, and some of these updates seem to be older remastered scenes which were not shot in 4K yet. Fortunately Elegant Raw is not a standalone site now; it's part of a huge, high-quality network of European-based porn. The membership has great value if you take that into account.
