Porn newcomer with potential

Afterglow is a new ethical porn site, founded by startup-experienced Lilly Sparks. In addition to a selection of purchased films from other studios, afterglow relies on its ownself-produced porn. One of the highlights is their “eduporn”, porn where you can learn something – here you can find films about how to give a handjob or a how-to for women who want to have sex with a woman for the first time. The design of afterglow is dark with appealing images that make you want more without being too explicit.

On Set

To create a safe and respectful environment, there is a code of conduct for the entire film crew, as well as an additional person on set to make sure performers feel comfortable and that no personal boundaries are crossed during filming.

Payment

Afterglow pays at or above industry standard rates for performers.

Safer Sex

(STI prevention / testing; access to safer sex supplies)

Afterglow ensures all performers are tested within 14 days prior to shoot and allows performers to decide their preferences with regards to safer sex.

Consent

… regarding practices, upload, shooting partners:

For each afterglow production, pre- and post-production interviews are conducted with the performers. In the intake interviews, the afterglow team goes through the script and discusses what acts will be performed as well as the performers’ boundaries. On the day of the shoot, these boundaries are discussed again to see if anything has changed. In the interviews after the shoot performers can give their feedback. Stopping the shoot is possible at any time by using a safe word.

The Site's own Claim

On afterglow you can see a lot of familiar faces of the indie-porn scene. The performers range from straight to queer and very different people and body shapes are seen, though almost no older people.

We are curious to see if afterglow will also become more diverse as the media library grows. The latest “sex with disability” eduporn looks very promising in that sense!

Content Categories

There are no problematic categories. The films have tags, these in turn are divided into categories . For example, the categories include “act” where you can then find tags like “nipple play”, “handjob” or “gangbang”.

    Performers

    Unfortunately, there is no overview of the performers on the page, and they are not tagged under the videos either.

    In the “backstage” section, you get behind-the-scenes insights into the afterglow productions and also get to know the performers a little better through interviews.

    Language

    At afterglow the wording stands out in a positive way . It is explicit, but not vulgar, rather descriptive. This applies also for the descriptions of the videos. You can really tell that afterglow is often about sexual empowerment and learning.

    Advertising

    Afterglow is ad-free.

    Handling / Usability

    Language: English

    The site is easy to use and has a nice design, the videos also play through without buffering or other hiccups. Unfortunately you can’t search for individual performers and there is no search function at all.

    Transparency: Who is Filming / Producing / Moderating?

    Most of the films are purchased, you can see which production company has made them. However you only see the name of the studio.
