Unfiltrd drops a couple vowels from the title, making for a modern brand name along the lines of Flickr, Tumblr or Grindr. It’s clever branding, turning a common word into something you can Google without getting a million unrelated results. Of course, they’ve still got the challenge of making people associate that common word with whatever they happen to be selling. If you’ve never heard of these guys before, you might assume they were selling bottled water, extra-harsh cigarettes, or angry rants by a man with a serious and debilitating brain injury.
Then again, I wouldn’t be reviewing any of that SFW shit here at ThePornDude. A couple years ago it might have been difficult to sum up the gimmick here, but it’s a lot easier with a common point of reference: Unfiltrd.com is an alternative to OnlyFans, where models can hawk their homemade smut directly to fans. They’re still a long way from achieving the popularity of the big OF, but with a quarter of a million visitors every month and a growing userbase, they’re on their way. Let’s see how they measure up to the big boys.
Like OnlyFans, but with Cleavage Out Front
As popular as OnlyFans is, I’ve spent the last couple years complaining about what I see as serious flaws in their setup. For one thing, there’s really nothing out on their front page that even implies what kind of material you’ll find inside. People wouldn’t sign up if they didn’t know the name, which is a fucking weird way to do business. For contrast, check out my site PornDudeCasting; you don’t have to sign up to know it’s a porn site, because I’ve packed the tour page with preview videos.
Unfiltrd takes a much more typical approach to their landing page, because they actually tell you what kind of site it is. There are no visible nipples out front, but there is plenty of cleavage and the promise of more. It’s a really nice-looking presentation, too, with smooth color gradients, rounded edges and well-written copy expounding on the platform’s virtues. In other words, it feels modern, professional, and inviting as hell.
I ran into an odd little glitch when I tried to look at the Discover page without signing up for an account. Nothing loaded, and I got a couple “Internal Error” messages at the top of the page. Fortunately, the page loaded just fine once I’d registered a free account. They’ll let you use your Google credentials to get in, so signup takes literally just a few seconds.
I know my audience, so I’m mainly aiming this review at the end user, those of you who are just going to be shaking your dicks at all the pretty girls on the screen. That said, Unfiltrd.com is definitely worth a look if you’re a content creator in search of an alternative to OnlyFans and their 20% commission. Unfiltrd only takes 15%, which they claim is the lowest fee of any major fan subscription website.
The obvious downside to that higher payout rate is that Unfiltrd only gets a fraction of the traffic of OnlyFans. I really wonder how much it matters, though. OnlyFans gets a lot more visitors, sure, but they make discovery a real fucking challenge with a weak search engine and minimal previews. As we’ll see, Unfiltrd makes it a lot easier to find your dream girl even if you’ve never heard of her yet.
How to Find the Girl of Your Dreams
As with OnlyFans and its myriad knockoffs, Unfiltrd.com is a porn site set up like a social media site. The meat of the member’s area is the feed you’ll see as soon as you log in, which will show you all the latest and greatest posts from all the models you’re following. Some joints will fill your starter feed with random content, often from creators paying for promotion, but my initial feed was empty. “Try to follow creators to build your feed,” read the simple instructions at the bottom.
Don’t mind if I do. My biggest longstanding beef with OnlyFans is how fucking difficult it is to search, which sucks for everybody involved: the fans who can’t find the content they want to crank it to, and the models who are forced to do all of their advertising elsewhere. One of the things I loved about Unfiltrd right away is that they make it really easy to find sexy sluts peddling exactly the type of smut you’re after.
A couple tabs at the top of your feed give you quick access to the Trending and Discover sections. The Trending content consists of specific videos, posts, events and auctions that have been getting a lot of attention lately, all of which cost money. The Discover section offers up a cross section of models you can Follow for free.
Unless you’ve got some seriously weird, seriously deep fetish for deformed chicks or something, I bet you’ll find exactly your type of women. There’s a nice range of beautiful models selling their homebrew smut, so nobody should have to settle for a chick who only gives you a semi.
You can browse creators by Top Rated, Popular, New or Online. The top-rated babes right now include gothic redheads, big-titty MILFs, (18+) teen cosplay enthusiasts, and a couple stray dudes. I see ebony chicks, Latinas, Asians, exotic mixed girls and white women galore. They’ve even got foot fetish models, muscle babes, and BBWs for those who appreciate some extra cushion for the pushin.
Sexy Freebies with a Small Catch
It’s become common for models to have two different accounts on OnlyFans: a free one for promotion, and a premium one for raking in that cold, hard cash. I really prefer Unfiltrd’s approach, which allows their creators to offer multiple subscription tiers on the same account. You can Follow for free, and then upgrade if you just can’t get enough.
Perusing the Discover page, I found this gorgeous, thick beauty standing on a beach in a bikini. I clicked through to her profile and found a few subscription options on top of the free Follow. She’s got membership tiers at $4.99, $7.99 and $29.99 per month, each one containing more photos and videos than the last.
I wanted to populate my feed with a bunch of free stuff before I started spending money, so I just clicked Follow. Some of the cheapskates and bums in the audience are going to be really fucking disappointed when they try this, because Unfiltrd.com does require a credit card on file even if you’re just signing up for the freebies. Sorry, folks.
And What Else is There?
Maybe the mandatory card digits are a decent way of keeping out the riffraff who aren’t going to spend any money, even if it sucks for those of you still living in mom’s basement. Whatever the case, Unfiltrd.com offers multiple ways to burn through your paycheck. It ain’t just tiered subscriptions.
My current feed consists almost entirely of free content from babes I’ve followed. Scrolling through, the nudes and twerk videos are occasionally interspersed with blurred-out images. If you don’t want to buy a subscription, you can still buy individual pics and vids. A few minutes ago, one of the babes I’m following posted a two-picture set that I can unlock for a fiver if I don’t want the $25 subscription.
The site also lets models run auctions and private ticketed events. None of the women I followed were offering any of these as I was typing up this review, as it looks like only a handful of babes are offering them. Click the Trending tab at the top of your feed to see who’s selling used panties or getting ready to give head on camera. Hopefully these features will be utilized more as the platform becomes more popular.
And you know what? I think it’s going to keep getting more popular. The traffic stats hint at that, sure, but speaking as a professional pornography reviewer, I really like what I see. Unfiltrd.com is a solid OnlyFans alternative without the obvious flaws of OnlyFans. It’s easier to search, pays models better and doesn’t make them create multiple accounts just to offer some free content. As the site continues to evolve to the desires of its userbase, it’s only going to get better. This one’s worth a signup for the freebies, at the very least.
