Disclaimer: there are different types of Vivid memberships. To make sure you get one with full Adult Time network access, use this link, or the link in our Adult Time review to subscribe. You'll also get the x3guide discount.

Vivid Entertainment is a big name in the porn industry. They are one of the most famous American porn studios.

Vivid started producing doing porn over 30 years ago, and it has released thousands of VHS tapes and DVDs since then. The studio also launched their membership-based website early on, in the 90s. This is our third review of it.

There are some good news and some bad news. The good news is, you now get full Adult Time access with your membership, which is one of the best porn networks online.
The bad news is that Vivid seems to have stopped producing new scenes in 2020.

With this membership, you get access to their entire Vivid library (all Vivid subsites, including Vivid Celeb) of around 7000 scenes, plus the Adult Time mega network, which has around 54,000 more scenes.

In the new Adult Time interface, if you expand the Vivid channel in the Videos menu, you'll get a list of Vivid's sub-sites aka sub-channels. We'll describe all of them, dedicating a special section to Vivid Celeb, their most special sub-site.

Vivid Celeb

Vivid Celeb is probably the biggest attraction to many readers. It is the only place to watch the sex tapes of many celebs. There are good news and bad news here too. The good news is that unlike on the previous site, now you can download the celebrity sex tapes too, not just stream them. (Unless you bought a cheaper streaming-only membership.) The bad news is that the Kim Kardashian sex tape isn't available in the Vivid Celeb library anymore.
However all the other celeb sex videos are still here:

  • Farrah Abraham Sex Tape (Farrah Superstar Backdoor Teen Mom)
  • Farrah Abraham Sex Tape 2 (Farrah 2 Backdoor and More)
  • Mimi and Nikko Sex Tape (Mimi & Nikko: Scandal In Atlanta)
  • Tammy Lynn Sytch Sex Tape (Tammy Lynn Sytch - Sunny Side Up) (The WWE diva)
  • Courtney Stodden Sex Tape
  • Tila Tequila Sex Tape (Tila Tequila Uncorked)
  • Tila Tequila Sex Tape 2 (Tila Tequila Back Doored And Squirting)
  • Chyna Sex Tape (Backdoor to Chyna)
  • Pamela Anderson & Tommy Lee Sex Tape (Pam & Tommy)
  • Montana Fishburne Sex Tape
  • Taylor Chandler Sex Tape (Taylor Lianne Chandler: Going for the Gold)
  • Karissa Shannon Sex Tape (Karissa Shannon Superstar) (Playmate, known from the TV series, "The Girls Next Door")
  • Sydney Leathers Sex Tape (Weiner And Me)
  • Myla Sinanaj Sex Tape (Myla Sinanaj: The Anti-Kim XXX)
  • Shauna Sand Sex Tape (Shauna Sand Exposed)
  • Jimi Hendrix Sex Tape
  • Brittney Jones Sex Tape (Brittney Jones Confidential)
  • Karrine Steffans Sex Tape (Superhead)
  • Tom Sizemore Sex Tape (The Tom Sizemore Sex Scandal)
  • Erica Lynne Sex Tape (Erica Lynne is Badd) (star of "Bad Girls Club")
  • Jessica Sierra Sex Tape (Jessica Sierra Superstar) (American Idol season four finalist, star of "Celebrity Rehab")
  • Toastee Sex Tape (Toastee Exposed) (Star of "Flavor of Love", and Jen from "Charm School")
  • Kelli McCarty Sex Tape (former Miss USA, soap opera Passions star)
  • Phil Varone Sex Tape (rock star & groupies)

The movies are surprisingly long, 60 minutes on average. The celeb sex videos' quality varies a lot. Some new home videos look great—such as Farrah Abraham's, Tammy Lynn Sytch's, and Tila Tequila's. There are also many older tapes which don't look that good.

But, when it comes to celeb tapes, we'll watch whatever we can get. There are some really hot celeb tapes in here, with sweaty, wild celeb sex. There is raw hard sex and blowjobs in them, I was quite surprised actually. I have to say that I loved the videos.

Other Vivid channels

In addition to Vivid Celeb, there are 14 sub-sites that are part of Vivid:

  • Vivid, 3586 scenes: various Vivid scenes that don't belong to any other channel
  • Vivid Classic, 1615 scenes: the vintage porn libary of Vivid, with many legendary porn stars like Jenna Jameson, Asia Carrera, Christy Canyon, Marylin Chambers, Ginger Lynn, Chasey Lain, and Belladonna
  •, 930 scenes: hardcore scenes with babes just over 18
  • Girls Who Fuck Girls, 167 scenes: lesbian sex
  • Mom Is a MILF, 109 scenes: porn with sexy American models in their 30s and 40s.
  • Nasty Stepfamily, 103 scenes: taboo stories with American step sisters, step moms, and step daughters
  • Orgy Train, 93 scenes: group sex, including some legendary flicks from the Vivid library, and amateur American orgies as well
  •, 84 scenes: sexy short porn stars
  • Brand New Faces, 81 scenes: the casting series of Vivid
  • TS Divas, 78 scenes: the trans site of Vivid
  • Black White Fuck Fest, 52 scenes: interracial
  • 65 Inch Huge Asses, 44 scenes: BBW with big butts in hardcore sex
  • The Brats, 5 scenes: mini-series with bratty girls
  • Where The Boys Aren't, 5 scenes: mini-series with lesbian fantasies

As you can see, the Vivid channels cover a lot of niches. You'll get a lot of mainstream porn, with American porn stars from the past few decades up to 2020. There are also amateurs, for instance at Brand New Faces. And there are also a few genres that don't have their own channel—for instance there are a number of BDSM scenes spread out between the channels. If you like mainstream porn, you'll find a lot of great stuff here.

All of the content can be downloaded and streamed. Most of it in Full HD, except for the oldest stuff. Having said that, many of these Full HD scenes are remastered, and not at the quality level of the new paysites. In other words, you can expect good video quality at Vivid, but not top of the line.

There are also pictures at Vivid, but a lot less than videos. You will find some great galleries, I especially like the oldest ones. In the new galleries it's often screen caps instead of real photos, or just a few teaser pics they probably took for promoting the DVDs. But if you go back a few pages, you'll find some awesome photo sets. There is a nice photo viewer now, and you can also download the galleries as ZIP files.

Is the entire Adult Time included with the Vivid membership? Yes, but make sure you use the right link to join the new Vivid. With this link you'll get access to both Vivid and Adult Time, and also get the x3guide discount. (There are links out on the Internet there that lead to the old Vivid, which may not include access to Adult Time.)
Another option is joining through our Adult Time review, you'll also get access to Vivid that way. While Vivid is an archive site at this point, Adult Time has over 61,000 scenes, many other great paysites, and adds multiple new updates every day.

Now that Vivid is served from the Adult Time network members area, usability has improved a lot. After you log in with your pass, you can browse all of the updates of Adult Time, or head to the Vivid channel, by choosing Videos > Vivid or Pictures > Vivid.

The new site works perfectly on computers, tablets, and mobile. Downloads and streaming are fast. You get all the modern browsing tools: easy-to-use pagination, advanced search, favorites, filtering using channels, models, and plenty of keywords. The old Vivid members area had tons of ads, that problem is gone too.

It is important to note that Vivid doesn't update at the moment. They haven't added any new scenes for a while, and it might stay that way. On the other hand, the new members area is the best it ever had. Their huge library is finally easy to browse and search, and the streaming and downloads are super smooth too.

The most important change is that you get access to Adult Time with your membership now, making it risk-free to get a subscription. Adult Time is really one of the best adult subscriptions to have, it's a great deal at the price. So if you're interested in browsing the thousands of great scenes Vivid Entertainment has produced, and the famous celeb sex tapes, this is a great opportunity. Subscription payments are handled by Gamma Entertainment / Adult Time's in-house biller, which is reliable.
