    • Since the videos are the main attraction here, we'll start with those. There are currently 1,525 videos available and they are so authentic, so genuine, so real, they're just perfect for the lover of homemade amateur porn. The videos range in length from 25 to 90 minutes long and they are offered in Windows Media (.wmv) in three speeds up to 700k. That's high enough to look just fine on full screen; nothing spectacular or anything, but definitely good.

    • The pictures aren't the main focus of the site, but there are 131,240 of them in 2,283 galleries available here. Each gallery has anywhere from 20 to 80 pictures available. Quality varies quite a bit. Some sets look extremely homemade while others look almost professional. Size-wise, the pictures are pretty variable. 377x574, 431x648, 450x600, 600x800, 600x900 and 768x1024 are just some of the sizes we saw while browsing through the archive. As far as subject matter, you can find a little bit of everything here: young chicks to mature wives, curvy women to tight-bodied honeys, solo posing to boy-girl action, intergenerational sex, group sex, lesbian sex, bondage and just about everything else you can think of.

    • All in all we really enjoyed the content here.

    About Homegrown Video:

    Homegrown Video has been featuring the XXX exploits of amateurs all over the globe for over 20 years! The company was originally founded in 1982 by a fun loving swinger named Greg Swaim. In 1993 a couple who had submitted amateur sex tapes originally bought Homegrown Video, resurrected the Homegrown Video line, then added new series like "Natural Bush" and "Creampie Club". Homegrown Video has been recognized as "the longest running series in the history of porn" according to Newsweek magazine.

    Started by swingers who traded their sexual escapades on video, the concept of real people having real sex has grown into a such a popular idea that Homegrown Video is now known worldwide. The company has frequently been profiled on mainstream television and in magazines, from 20/20 and HBO to Marie Claire, Newsweek, and GQ. The amateur porn revolution has changed the industry and Homegrown Video is trusted and respected as being a source for authentic homemade porn.

    People turned to Homegrown Video for the naturalism you can't always find in Pro-porn. To meet those interests, Homegrown, under its parent brand Xplor Media, has branched out and now feature series based on popular niches like Natural Bush, Cream Pie, Handjobs, Horny Over 40, Housewives Unleashed, Deepthroat Virgins, Amateur Anal Attempts, and more. The basic premise is still the same, let people do what they like to do with the person that he or she is comfortable with, and you end up with truly hot sex scenes. It is a simple formula that is often imitated but rarely duplicated by other adult companies.

    If you like to watch people of all ages over 18, body types, ethnicity and sexual preferences, you'll find something to love in Homegrown Video and Xplor Media. Although some Homegrown Video performers do go on to become big name porn stars, most are content to just make a video or two for just kicks. Today, people from all over the world submit their amateur sex tapes and Homegrown Video buys almost every legal tape that is submitted. The company learned early on that enthusiasm and smiling faces are more beautiful than any stereotype of what is or is not "pretty".

    The Homegrown Video website offers its members the ultimate chance to participate, even if they are not planning on submitting a video. Users can rate and comment on the video and pictures and provide the feedback that guides the company. This enables both the exhibitionists and the voyeurs of Homegrown's adult community to talk directly and enjoy each other even more.

    Although Homegrown Video continues to grow and expand the horizons of the content it offers, the company remains true to its roots and will always seek to keep the spirit of good amateur porn alive and well. The best selling author Eric Schlosser of "Fast Food Nation" and "Reefer Madness" noted in the latter, "Made by the people for the people, Homegrown Video represents the democracy of porn". He could not have summed it up better.
