The best alternatives to Pornhub and Xvideos

PDT: This post has been updated to include information about issues with non-consensual porn on xHamster and free tube sites in general. is a global, multi-platform media and entertainment company.

While Pornhub took Girls Do Porn’s channel down in October, after federal prosecutors charged Girls Do Porn owners and employees with sexual trafficking, its page is still up on Xvideos. (The criminal case is ongoing and the civil suit was initially filed in 2016.

Blake White, Pornhub’s vice president, added in an emailed statement that the site removes copies of videos that have been fingerprinted — a free service that acts as a digital watermark — and works to remove pirated content featuring its partners from other tube sites.

Free porn sites (aka "tube" sites) often rely on profiting off of widespread piracy, making it near impossible for performers to earn a living.

MindGeek disputes that characterization, with representative Michael Willis pointing to viewership data that shows its sites aren’t alone among the most popular porn sites (it owns three in the top 10 and seven in the top 100).

If you’re wondering why you’ve become so bored by the widely accessible mainstream porn that just seems to keep doing more of the same, Pornhub and its parent company MindGeek deserves part of the blame.

Yet the reality is free porn isn’t going anywhere (for now), and some tube sites can be more ethical than others.

Unfortunately, there’s really no such thing as guaranteed ethical free porn in the way that tube sites provide it.

There are sites with artsy high productions, the down and dirty kinky, genuine amateurs, personalized experiences with stars, and an underrated category of erotica that isn’t just video porn.

For years now, MindGeek has been accused of monopolistic dominance in the porn industry.

Girls Do Porn had been affiliated with Pornhub and Xvideos.

Still, MindGeek has a vast amount of power and influence over porn industry actors and producers.

It’s basically industry whistleblowers feeling as though they sacrifice their careers to speak up or journalists shedding light on abuses like those alleged against Girls Do Porn.

Ethical porn, which focuses on performers’ rights, consent, and safety, has become an increasingly discussed issue in the industry.

In January, a judge awarded $13 million to 22 women who accused porn producer Girls Do Porn of tricking and coercing them into performing.
