Anabolic review

Summary: Anabolic gives you unlimited access to their popular catalogue of gonozo and extreme porn movies here, but the site fails to really shine. The lack of HD downloads (which were promised before signing up), limited and average media options, and a high sticker price put it somewhere on the middle of the list. There's a lot of very intense competition offering great porn and porn stars like those you'll found here, and Anabolic needs to step up its game if it wants to be a serious challenger.

First impression

Up today is a little site that goes by the name Anabolic. If that sounds familiar to you, it's because there's a very large, long-running and popular gonzo porn studio by the same name. They are one in the same, this being their online portal for fans to enjoy their hardcore and often extreme porn action.

The site shows off their content on the homepage. You can see a good number of previews that set the tone for what you can expect inside: girls covered in cum, being fucked up the ass by big cocks, sharing dick between them or being teamed up on.

There were HD badges on all of the videos on the tour, and they promise impressive numbers of content at sign up. Read on for an in depth look at everything that comes after you sign up to be a member, including technical specs and overall quality of experience.

Our opinion

Anabolic studios was founded by Christopher Alexander in 1990 with the goal of making good, hardcore gonzo porn that was more extreme and more exciting than what other studios had been doing up until then. Here you get access to 797 scenes from their DVDs online. The content is exciting and stars lots of porn star talent, but the website had a few things to smooth out yet and promises left to live up to. The site is also a bit more expensive than what other studios will charge for similar access to their libraries, so before you jump in here read up and have a look at the competitor sites at the end of this review as well.

A Large Library & Great DVD Titles

'SavannahOne thing that can't be argued is the excitement and quality of the Anabolic porn catalog. There are some classic titles available here, like Bring Um Young, A2M, Ass Cream Pies, Initiations and Sweet Cheeks. In total there were 640+ scenes and that number looks to be growing.

In terms of sex you'll enjoy all the sort of hardcore, filthy action that made this studio one of the most popular porn producers in America. Anal sex, ass worship, gaping, double penetration, threesomes and group sex, rough sex, face fucking, facials and cumshots, and much more.

Long List of Porn Star Talent

You'll have a few hundred porn stars to watch in action here, and many of the big names in the industry have a few scenes to their credit. Nikki Sexx, Audrey Bitoni, Jayden James, Britney Stevens, Cody Lane, Courtney Cumz and Alexis Love... the list just keeps going and going.

The Site is Organized

'18You can look through scenes, DVD box covers, or porn stars. There are filtering tools for limiting results to a specific category of porn or porn star actress. More could have been done still, but these tools made it pretty quick work to cut through the library and find what you want to see most.

Multiple Updates Daily

According to the dates on the videos, several scenes are added to the collection here every day. In the last year they added hundreds of new scenes.

Behind The Scenes Content

There were lots of videos and pictures of behind the scenes content. Mostly these come from the bonuses of the DVDs featured on the website, but they are still fun. Bloopers, interviews, and a wallflower experience at porn sets added a nice dimension to the fun.

Downloads & Streaming, but Average Quality

'AsaAnabolic didn't do a very good job when it came to content downloads and streaming. You have two options. Stream the movie online in an embedded Flash video or download the full length scene in an MP4 file. Both have 640x480 screens (2 mbits) and look good, but the formats offered are very average compared to other studios and websites in the niche. There are no other formats to choose from, no mobile or iPad ready downloads, nothing but those two simple average options.

Not Many Galleries

There were very few galleries here. Most are from the behind the scenes features on DVDs and there aren't many pics in them. Also, models have few video scenes/galleries to their credit. Most have just 1 or 2.

HD is 'Coming Soon'

Once you log in they apologize for not having HD available. Apparently it's on the way soon. This apology only made me more upset about the misleading advertising. If it isn't ready yet, don't advertise it as a perk for selling memberships! I really felt cheated here, and that soured my experience overall.

Anabolic Porn Review Take-Aways:

  • Anabolic studios puts up a huge number of their extreme gonzo porn titles here, with lots of anal, DP, cream pie and other action.
  • The download and streaming options are limited and average in quality - so far no HD which has be "coming soon" for months now.
  • Updates daily.
  • Not many galleries compared to the number of videos.

Conclusion

A solid studio with great porn, but the website fails to live up to its promises and delivers a rather average experience at an elevated price.

Anabolic needs to roll up their sleeves and make a website more worthy of their great porn. With no HD downloads and very limited media options with average quality playback, this DVD studio's collection loses a lot of its shine. It doesn't help that they charge a rather steep fee for monthly membership compared to their competitors. If you love the studio's work, there's no replacing it, but there are other DVD studio sites online that could offer a better deal with better media options.

Competitors

Several porn studios are figuring out that their websites ought to be more than a collection of average quality downloads and streams. In fact, right now many of the studio sites outshine their physical DVD products when it comes to value for the money and quality.

Check out Third Movies and ZTOD, which come as a package and offer intense gonzo porn in HD.

Wicked Pictures has been hard at work as well, refreshing their web offerings and things are very hot over there right now.

Evil Angel has been in the web game for awhile, and has a huge huge huge library of intense gonzo porn with Europe's finest. Media options are better there as well.

No HD content as is promised

Poor search capabilities by actress only, not category or niche

No daily updates as promised, just several random scenes per month

Missing many movies from its famous series.

A better sampling of their material and some HD is available at VideoBox.
