Digital Playground is a porn paysite founded in 1993. They were bought by Mindgeek corporation in 2004. I got interested in the company, upon seeing ads on the site for geeky porn parodies. Star Wars porn, the Avengers porn; content with a clear niche market focus. The promotional images were oozing with the right vibe, raising my expectations fairly high. I thought it’d be cool to watch live-action twilek fucking.

I have been in the porn business since 2014. I make my living on sales commissions from promoting sextoys, porn games, and paysites. I have my own store, where you can support my work with your shopping.

Welcome to Otaku Apologist’s official review of Digital Playground!

Content

Multiple adult studios pump out long-ass movies, standalone clips, episodes into running series. The site has been around for many long years; you’re never going to run into a shortage of fap fuel as a subscriber.

Singular porn scenes are 30-35 minutes long, and usually go through the familiar “blowjob-cunnilingus-intercourse-cumshot” formula. In the beginning of a clip, there is often a fight scene, or a phone scene before sex is initiated, after which the story is forgotten in favor of banging.

The sex is mostly vanilla, with little fetish exploration. There is straight, and lesbian porn. After a few weeks of browsing the site, I haven’t found one clip that features a footjob, pissing, fisting, whipping, or similar hardcore sexual niches. If you’re looking to scratch a special itch, this site isn’t for you.

My favorite clip featured a spoiled slutty teen that fucked a celebrity doctor (think Doctor Phil show). The story sequence really established the characters. Before they got naked, she was spreading her legs in front of a booing audience, acting like a total bitch, giving her middle finger to everyone in the room. When the man and the girl got in a backroom, she quickly seduced the male doctor. When the sex started, I could totally believe the actress was this character. Every pose they took was hardcore, the fucking was animalistic, the girl was shamelessly into it. I came buckets.

I also checked out the porn parodies. I watched two Star Wars porn clips, and some Marvel porn. The parodies did a great job with the makeup and the costumes, but the sets looked very cheap. It was distracting to watch Captain America fuck Black Widow in some kind of grey warehouse. Seriously.

Like with any content website, there are good clips, and bad clips. The worst porn clip I watched had a mature cellulite rocking woman with blatantly dyed hair, red-throbbing surgery marks under her breasts. I understand that plastic surgery is part of the industry, but come on.

Video player quality

The videos can be viewed at 320p, 480p, 720p, 1080p, and the highest setting “auto”. The videos can be watched full-screen, or in windowed mode. You can control the speed of the playback; accelerate it, or slow it down. The speeds are 0.25, 0.5, normal, 1.5, and 2 times faster. I don’t immediately understand who would wanna watch their porn at double speed, but the slowmo I get. If your fetish is slow, deep intercourse, I guess you’re in for a treat? The frame rate is at maximum 30 frames per second, so changing the video speed doesn’t look that good.

There was no choppiness in the many videos I watched, no glitches or lag, or anything else obstructive. But the lack of a popout window is sad. Many people are so busy these days, they don’t want to quit working to watch a porn video. I always want porn playing in the background while doing what makes me money; my laptop’s screen is limited, yet I need to be able to fit everything on it. A popout player would be very handy, it would make the service more easy to integrate into the lifestyles of modern PC users.

Actresses

The main attraction of any straight porn site, are the women. I can say the majority of women I’ve seen fucking at Digital Playground, are boner busters. I can’t recognize popular faces, having not watched regular porn in ages, hence I am outside the loop about which porn actresses are idolized these days. But looking at the girls, their carved bodies, I can see these ladies enjoying a long-ass career in cock gobbling.

My favorite actress on the site was Eva Lovia, who caught my eye for making constant appearances in their ongoing series. After quick research, I discovered she isn’t just winging gigs for Digital Playground, she is actually contracted on the site, possibly exclusively, and looks to be one of their most popular actresses. She is half Japanese, half Spanish – what a combo! Japanese kinkiness mixed with hot-blooded latino flesh. She makes an incredible performance in the series “My Wife’s Hot Sister”, where she fucks a man in the bathtub, in poses that require actual fitness to pull off.

Eva Lovia also appears in several episodes of “Bulldogs”, three Star Wars scenes, and seemingly a hundred other videos she’s starred in since 2015. That’s a busy girl.

Site functionality

You can plow through the material and find good fap material for your 15-30 minutes of masturbation, that the average person spends on fapping. But, since you’re a customer that’s actually paying for their porn, I will venture a guess that you want a higher quality experience. In that light, Digital Playground suffers from certain technical issues. For instance, the thumbnails for videos often do not show. I found myself often picking videos blindly based on their written descriptions.

My biggest gripe is how the website forcibly logs you out after circa 30 minutes. Just when you’re done watching a clip, and start hunting for another, you find yourself at the login screen filling in the captcha.

About the navigation: You can search for “videos”, “movies”, and “series”. “Videos” opens seven other sub categories. In the main categories, there’s also “promos”, “extras”, “tags”, “girls”, and “live cams”. The navigation seems bloated to me, especially when the links are text-based, contrasted with image-based links. My personal preference is to keep categorization of content simple, and image-based. The more sub classes you add for content categories, the less fluent the experience.

You can favorite videos, and create watch lists. Neat!

As a self-learned online advertiser, I except discreet, static, effective on-site advertising that doesn’t hurt the viewing experience. I suspect the animated HTML5 banners are a major cause slowing the site down. The on-site advertisements promote premium Digital Playground membership (unlocks unlimited downloads of HD videos), and other Mindgeek sites. I have excellent internet connection living in a modern city, yet my browser takes circa 30 seconds to load the banners every time.

Digital Playground summary

Good: Hot actresses, quality videoplayer, ongoing series, geek porn, videos have good lighting and makeup.

Bad: Sluggish website, cluttered navigation, over-supply of vanilla content, forced log-outs every 30 minutes.

If my review got you interested, subscribe to the site. After you are subbed once, I make a sales commission from every month you sub. You support the site, and every project I do. Thanks, faggot.
