I don't know what's up with all these tubes that have these names like Dinosaur, Giraffe, Rhino but here we are once again, with a tube site that has a name after a mammal that lives in Africa, ElephantTube.com. What's the connection with an elephant and porn, I don't even care nor do I want to know, to tell you the truth, all I know is that their logo is a female elephant showing off its ass. Can you imagine? At least I hope its a female because it's already weird that I'm checking out an elephant's ass! Now, I'm done with zoo fetishing, let's get back to the site itself because this got me trippin'.
Elephant Tube is a free tube site that hosts videos from other porn sites. This way, they get to have millions and millions of videos, actually, 7,354,010. What they did is, they took videos from other sites, and once you click on some of these clips, you get redirected to that porn site. This way, they get to have a vast collection of videos presented as their own but the real value is that they get to pick and choose a huge amount of vids to present on ElephantTube.
The layout is simple, as by now I'm expecting to be on almost every porn site. A white background and lots and lots of videos plastered all over the homepage waiting to be clicked on. Underneath, there is a "Free Porn Index" where I can search for the exact keyword that I'm looking for or, what's more realistic, it's giving me an idea what is possible to click on. The thing is, I saw some categories that got me intrigued, categories that I didn't expect to see. Like, seriously, who would ever imagine typing in "long nails" or "collar" when they watch porn? By the way, "collar" is a BDSM category, you fill out the blank spots.
So what I'm getting from this type of porn browsing is kind of like "watch at your own risk" type of a deal or something close to that. Since the videos are not hosted on the ElephantTube.com, there is this plausible deniability that if something sucks about the video, it's not their fault. That's probably the reason why they have the "report link" option on all of the clips. It is like Google. They give you the address of where something is but it's not their fault if it's crappy. I don't know, I'm kind of half and a half on this, there are benefits and downsides. I don't know. Alright, moving on.
What's cool about the site or at least what they put an effort into, is that the search engine and the filtering systems are on point. I guess that they have to be since there are so many categories and options that if they didn't have it like this, the site would be a god damn mess. You can filter the videos by duration, dates, quality, sources all of that good stuff. Once I saw the source option I had to check out which sites they used as their sources and I have to add that this is a great collection of sites. At least you will be getting 1st hand dealers who know their shit. Good job ElephantTube for going to the right porn vendors.
The other thing that I realized as I was getting lost in all of the vanguard categories that ElephantTube has to offer, is that this vastness of the categories is actually awesome. I clicked on the celebrity one and I was impressed at how they sorted the videos. It is the same as the homepage, thumbs all over the page, but on my monitor, I got to squeeze in 4 columns of 7 rows. I had a great look at the videos and the variety was stunning. What I mean by variety is that you had the celeb sex tapes, you had the sex scenes from the movies or series and you had compilations etc. The variety was awesome and it got me to stay a bit longer than I intended...way longer. There was this Rosario Dawson video that I had to check out...man, that babe has some succulent boobs I gotta admit.
The biggest value that this site brings to the table is that it gives you a wide variety of porn videos that you get to check out for free. I checked out a few of these and I found out new porn sites that I didn't know about that carried awesome content that I had to check out since they were that good. The second thing was that there was this intrigue about these so-called weird categories. After watching so many porn videos and seeing every category known to man, this comes in as a great refreshment, to see some new and different ones.
With this concept, there is that downside and that is that when you click on a video, you are redirected to another porn site. Once there, you can easily get lost on that site and bye bye ElephantTube, see ya later because here comes aligator...tube porn site. I'm not sure how this concept works for them and how they get to generate revenue, I'm sure that there is a way, but I'm just not interested in that part of porn. All I care is that the sites are cool and with ElephantTube, this is the case.
