Lustery Review: Falling in Love With This Intimate Homemade Porn Platform for Couples

The used panty marketplace

Lustery is branded as “the home of homemade porn videos.” Their goal is to be an outlet for real-life partners who want to film their sex lives behind closed doors and share that with the Lustery community. This is what sets Lustery apart from other porn platforms...it’s a community. And they place real importance on authentic passion and arousal.

Described on their home-page as “a community of people who enjoy watching real intimacy and emotion in porn”, I think Lustery fills in a gap in the porn industry that many of us didn’t even realize was there. If you enjoy amateur porn and want to support adult content creators, I’m fairly certain this is going to become your new favorite platform.

No acting, no scripts.
One of the biggest “selling points” on this platform is that there is no acting and no scripts. This is 100% genuine passion from real-life, loving couples of all kinds. Many different types of relationships are showcased on this platform (closed-relationships, open relationships, polyamorous relationships, monogamous relationships, as well as various sexual orientations) and you can filter through to find what you’re in the mood for.

The only platform of its kind - dedicated solely to amateur couples’ porn.
For me, one of the best parts about this website is that it’s completely dedicated to couples who want to share their sex lives with others. There are no solo acts and more importantly, there are no actors or actresses, no scripts, no performances. This is about real, passionate,  adventurous lovers exploring each other’s bodies in front of a camera and sharing that with this community.

While this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I think it’s the perfect platform for this genre of porn. Of course, if you’re looking for solo acts, masturbation guides, or more performance-based porn, this site may not have what you’re looking for.

Is this a new era of porn?
Are we in a new era of porn? Absolutely. If you don’t think so, you haven’t been paying attention. From audio porn platforms that are changing the way we think about pornography to platforms like OnlyFans normalizing sex work, we are most certainly in the middle of a sexual revolution, and platforms like Lustery are riding that wave to provide us with new kinds of content.

Introducing this kind of community-based, realistic, honest, and genuine platform to the world of porn, Lustery has capitalized on something that has been glossed over for ages in the porn world: reality.

Watching two people giggle, flirt, change positions, use various types of birth control, make love and then snuggle up after, all tangled in each other...there is a kind of real-ness there that can’t be fabricated. You can’t fake or recreate that, it just happens. And when it happens on camera for you to experience, the emotions and arousal that you feel because of that are vastly different than the things you experience when you watch scripted and highly edited porn. I’m not saying better or worse, because everyone has their own preferences when it comes to adult content - but the arousal you will feel on Lustery is much different than what you will feel when scrolling through Pornhub, for example.

Platform Breakdown

What is this platform really like?

Now that you understand what Lustery is, I wanted to give you an in-depth breakdown of how the platform works so you can decide if it’s a good fit for you. I’m going to break down a few things like how user-friendly the platform is, how affordable it is to join, and what being a part of a community-based amateur porn platform is like.

Full disclosure:
While the membership I am currently using on Lustery is free for me to use because I needed full access to review the site, I will be signing up after my trial ends...no question about it. I love this platform. After about 20 minutes on the site the very first time, I knew it was going to be something I wanted to continue using for the long-term. And the more I browsed, the more sure I was of that.

As someone who mainly listens to porn instead of watching it, I find it difficult to be engaged in mainstream porn. Much of the time it seems a bit...over-the-top. Silly, scripted, not at all realistic...just like a bad TV show. Amateur porn is usually different, but I’m beginning to realize not every amateur porn site does it quite the same way Lustery does.

With all of that being said...what are some of the pros and cons of joining Lustery?

✔️ This platform is very user-friendly.
Absolutely. I was genuinely, pleasantly surprised at the kind of filter search system this platform offers. Not only can you search by date or content creator, but you can search through preferences like relationship type (closed-relationship, open-relationship, primary partners, regular lovers, life partners, etc) and you can also search by language, with quite a few options (English, Spanish, French, Russian and German to name a few).

This kind of filter system on this particular kind of platform (a platform dedicated to helping amateur couples share their intimate lives with the world) creates a very unique viewer/content creator relationship.

Not only can you really see the passion and chemistry between the couples (because they are real couples, really having sex in their own settings) but you can also develop something of a personal connection to them based on their story.

You can filter through and choose the type of couple you’d like to watch - this can be someone who is extremely similar to you and your partner or the complete opposite, just for a taste of something new. You can also search through specific keywords or tags such as “dirty talk” or “male POV” like with other platforms, but you also get some pretty niche keywords like “tattoos” or “piercings”, which really lets you find exactly what you’re in the mood for.

Finding the type of amateur porn you’re looking for is incredibly easy on this platform thanks to their filter and search options.

✔️ This platform focuses solely on amateur porn, sticking to one genre, and doing it the right way.
Lustery is in a league of their own in that they only accept content from partners, not solo acts or anonymous submissions like some other porn platforms. While any kind of romantic partnership is allowed (polyamorous, opened/closed relationship, etc), you will only find partnered sex videos on Lustery.

“With a seemingly unlimited supply of porn online, it’s surprising how little of it captures the magic of genuine passion and desire that is found with real, loving partners.” According to their homepage, Lustery aims to readdress this balance by providing a platform that is solely dedicated to celebrating romantic and intimate moments shared between real-life couples.

“Experience unique connections and authentic pleasure, straight from the bedrooms of real couples around the world.”

✔️ Lustery is about building a community of like-minded couples who want to share their sex lives.
While Lustery might be putting themselves in a bit of a niche sector of porn, it’s a niche that is in pretty high demand these days. Amateur porn was ranked as the number one most searched category in Pornhub’s 2019 year in review. Amateur porn is in high demand and having a place that is dedicated solely to amateur couples sharing their most intimate moments is one of the reasons Lustery is growing in popularity.

No anonymous content. Lustery wants to partner with couples who want to openly share their sex lives with the community.
One of the “downsides” to this platform, if you’re looking to be a content creator but aren’t sold on the idea of putting yourself completely out there, is that they don’t accept anonymous content.

The creators on Lustery appear in their videos with no anonymity. While there are different POV shots in the videos, there are no such things as anonymous creators on this platform. This can be both a pro or a con, depending on how you feel about that.

✔️ One-of-a-kind videos shot only for Lustery.
On Lustery, the videos you see are generally being filmed exclusively for Lustery. The couples in the videos will often acknowledge the Lustery community or explain that they are filming for Lustery today. This kind of one-of-a-kind content is seriously erotic, as someone who has seen their fair share of porn. It’s nice to be introduced to something new that’s also totally raw and authentic.

Of course, there’s not as much content as on other sites due to the nature of the community and platform.
Because the content on Lustery is exclusive and because the platform itself is designed for couples only, there isn’t as much content available on this platform as there are on porn powerhouses like Pornhub.

While this can be a negative thing, I personally love it. I think if you’re looking for one specific type of content (in this case unscripted amateur porn) that it’s really helpful to have a specific place you go to find it easily. However, if you’re in the mood to scroll for porn and not quite sure what you’re looking for, Lustery may not be the right choice for you.

✔️ You can’t fake this kind of chemistry.
By far one of the best things about this website is the authenticity of the people making content for Lustery. These couples are real, passionate, sometimes silly, often very into each other in all the best ways - and it shows.

While there are some porn actors and actresses who are able to have a great time doing what they do and that does come across, there is nothing quite like a couple who lives together filming just a typical Saturday night love-making session to share with you. It’s a different vibe, and one I think a lot of people really appreciate (because amateur porn is such a popular genre).

❌ It is a paid membership service. The content you can unlock with the free option is quite limited because the platform is very much community-based.
To be honest, the fact that this is a paid membership platform really isn’t a con for me, but I know it is for some people, so I thought I’d mention it. While I have some very strong feelings about paying for porn (which I’ll get into a bit more later), some people are only in the market for free porn, which is totally fine - everyone has their own preferences and financial views.

This is a paid membership service, you subscribe to this platform as you would with Netflix or Onlyfans, paying a certain amount per month to access what’s on the site. Scanning through the number of videos available, knowing that there are new couples joining and filming for Lustery all the time, I certainly believe the fee is worth it!

✔️ The blog is a cherry-on-top.
Lustery is so much more than just adult video content - they also have a blog (which I’ll dive more into later). On the Lustery blog “POV”, they discuss things like decriminalizing sex work, how to get started in the adult film industry, and more. I absolutely love when porn platforms have this kind of educational element, so this gives them huge bonus points in my opinion.

My favorite Lustery couple...

While I hadn’t intended on including this part in my review, I just can’t help myself. The very first couple I watched caught my attention in a way no other amateur couple has ever caught my attention. While I did watch many other couples on Lustery, Carly and Cameron have a kind of chemistry that can’t be faked. From the first 10 seconds of their video, I was hooked.

They sit on the couch together, giggling, tangled up in each other, smiling and talking about how they met. The switch from “cute and cuddly” to “erotic and intense” isn’t seamless like it is in most heavily edited and scripted porn videos because it’s real life. They switch positions, giggle, tease each other and he even fumbles a little while taking off her panties...it’s just real. And watching something real is so much better than watching something that’s perfectly scripted.

As I’ve said, I have seen this same “realistic, down-to-earth” vibe with other Lustery couples as well, but there is something about these two that seems intoxicating to me - I just can’t get enough.(Carly and Cameron, if you’re reading this, please make more Lustery content - I adore you.)

The Lustery Blog (POV)

Let’s talk about the blog!

POV, the blog attached to Lustery, is focused on sex education, awareness, celebration and they even have posts where the content creators introduce themselves. This kind of interactive platform, where you get to know the creators and feel like you’re supporting them in their celebration of sex and each other is definitely something I feel is missing from a lot of other porn platforms.

Talking about things that actually matter...
While listicle-style articles like “how to slide into a girl’s DMs” are fun, at Sofia Gray, we like to add education and reliable information into our articles as much as we can, really bringing an all-encompassing sexual wellness experience to our readers...and POV is exactly the same - which I very much admire.

Lustery has done a wonderful job in tackling big issues like the lack of diversity in porn, decriminalizing sex work, and pushing for more accurate education surrounding sexual health and wellness. Being able to toe the line between educational and interesting written content that pairs nicely with their platform makes the POV blog a wonderful addition to their site.

You can also meet the couples…
One of my favorite parts about the blog is that there are actually entries from couples who create content for Lustery. These short and sweet entries detail a bit about the couple, how they met, why they want to create content for Lustery, and why they want to share it with you. Having this kind of “relationship” with your favorite content creators brings another element of realness to your erotic experience.

How to become a Lustery couple…

Are you and your lover interested in becoming a Lustery couple and creating one-of-a-kind, unique, personal, and fun content for the platform? Well, let me give you a bit of information on how to join this one-of-a-kind community.

No experience needed.
Lustery describes themselves as a “place for you to explore and expand on your sexuality” - so there is no previous adult content creation experience required. The goal of Lustery is to create content that is unique, personal, and authentic. They really just want you to be yourself, have fun and maybe make sure the camera is at a good angle for the rest of us to enjoy!

Guidelines are fairly straight-forward…
According to Lustery’s FAQ page, as long as you are a couple who are both over the age of 18 (government-issued ID is required to verify this) and you are comfortable showing your full faces on camera, you are likely to be approved as a Lustery couple. There is no signup fee involved.

Most videos are around 30 minutes (full length) or 15 minutes (quickie-style) and there are absolutely no obligations. You can create one video and be done or you can create a gallery of videos on your Lustery page - whatever you choose!

Created in the comfort of your own home.
The video you record can be shot in the comfort of your own bedroom (or kitchen/bathroom/patio if you’re feeling frisky). All you need to do is send the raw material to Lustery and they will edit the material if needed.

Fixed-amount payments.
Lustery works on a payment per video basis, meaning you get a fixed amount for submitting a video to Lustery instead of earning per click or rating like some other sites. While this, of course, puts a lock on how much you can make per video, it also ensures you can rely on how much you will make each and every video you produce with them.

Getting to know the brand before signing up…
According to the FAQ page, Paulita (the founder of Lustery) typically arranges Skype calls with every couple prior to their first video submission to make sure it’s a good fit. During this time, you can ask any questions you need to and get clarification on how the process goes.

What Lustery couples say about the platform…
Without a doubt shooting videos for [Lustery] is our favorite thing to do because we get to have sex exactly how we want to.” - Frankie and Lucy

“The way Lustery wants to show and let us show sex is so natural; we are just two people making love, exchanging and when I look at the others videos, I see that too, that’s beautiful.” - Edo and Lutece

“...Since we started filming for Lustery we talked a lot about sex and so many ideas came from this, pushing us to experiment more…” - Lillie and Stephen

Becoming a Lustery Member…

Are you interested in signing up to be a Lustery member and getting full access to the community? Here are some things you should know before signing up...

Let’s talk about paying for porn.
I’m going to get this out of the way: I am a firm believer in paying for porn.

Sex work is work. 100%. And if you’re able to afford a Netflix subscription to watch all the shows you want, how is subscribing to a porn platform any different? Providing quality content is a service (regardless of what type of content that is) and people deserve to be compensated for providing you with that service.

That being said, I know some people believe porn should be free, and to that I say - sorry, this platform may not be the right place for you.

Lustery is a paid membership website. Below is a simple breakdown of what prices you can expect for a membership to the platform:

  • $8 per month for 12 months ($96 per year)
  • $15 per month for 3 months ($45 per 3 months)
  • $25 per month (trial basis)
  • Free membership (limited access, unlock couple’s biographies and previews only)

Because Lustery is community-based and much of its content comes from real couples, I believe it works best as a subscription type of platform to ensure both the platform and its creators are being fairly compensated for their content.

Lustery: “The Home of Homemade Porn Videos” That Captures Real Intimacy

The bottom line? Lustery is a place for real, authentic, unedited pleasure. Of course, everyone has their own preferences - if you’re more into masturbation, JOI, solo, or gangbang style porn, Lustery might not be the right place for you.

However, if you enjoy amateur porn and are looking for a new favorite platform, I think Lustery could be what you’re looking for. Here, you will find real couples who are really enjoying creating content and exploring each other’s bodies. This is a one of a kind community of like-minded kinksters and I highly recommend giving it a try!
