||Hardcore Doorway is a small network of ten sites. Most of those sites are relatively small and three of them don’t really deserve to be called sites. Most of the sites haven’t updated in years and the most recent updates cause me to question whether the entire network is dead. The good news, however, is that some of the material is pretty good if it happens to be the kind of thing you’re into.
This network is the one of two affiliated networks, the other being Adult Doorway. AD may be better known since it happens to be home to one of the most abusive, misogynistic sites on the ‘net”: Facial Abuse. The sites on Hardcore Doorway use the same male talent, the same sets and many of the same models, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that much of the material here is pretty extreme. This is definitely NOT porn for everyone.
The site is made up of ten sites, but I’d only apply that label to seven of those. These are (including some current details):
• Sperm Suckers: 258 scenes, last updated three weeks ago
• Latina Abuse: 135 scenes, last updated almost three months ago
• Amateur Throats: 26 scenes, last updated almost two years ago
• Anal Recruiters: 33 scenes, last updated about two and a half years ago
• Huge Rubber Dicks: 20 scenes, last updated about three and a half years ago
• Lesbians Love Sex: 46 scenes, last updated almost four years ago
• Sexy Suck Jobs: 26 scenes, last updated almost four years ago
So it appears that only Sperm Suckers may be updating. The earlier updates were posted about once a week so I can’t be sure if they’ve stopped given that the latest scene is now three weeks old. It is also possible that Latina Abuse is updating. The update schedule there is sporadic with past updates being posted as frequently as one every three weeks and sometimes just once every five weeks or so. I think it’s fair to say that the others are now dead.
The remaining three ‘sites’ are:
• Monster Cock Madness: 16 scenes
• Fuck Me POV: 11 scenes
• Her First Porn: 27 scenes
The last update for each of these ‘sites’ was four and half years ago. The reason I don’t think these should be considered sites is because they offer limited scenes, those scenes are not exclusive, there is no scene information available, the scenes are only available as a series of small (20MB +/-) clips and they’ve obviously been abandoned.
I think given the fact that only two sites MAY be updating it is fair to say that no one should join this network expecting to stick around for a while to get more updates. So the question then becomes is this network worth a membership at all? Obviously the answer to this question will be different depending on what you look for in a site, but given that the material on the seven main sites is fairly rare (rough, hardcore anal with lots of genuine creampies and oral cum-play, for examples) and appears to be unique a membership here can be pretty good value, especially if you factor in the $20 price offered to TBP / PU members.
All of the sites (excluding the three non-sites as noted above) use the same simple but effective layout. There are 20 scene links per page in each of the sites and those links open into a separate page where you can stream or download the video. Streaming is in one resolution only, but the latest scenes do offer a lot of choice for downloads. WMV files are offered in 720x480, 640x480 and 320x240. There is usually an option for low-ish quality MPEG and MOV files too. In many of the newer scenes there is at least 720p offered and in a lot of scenes there is 720 and 1080p on offer. The 1080p comes in at 1080x720 at 5000kb/s and 30fps. Each scene is also broken down into smaller clips if that happens to be your preference.
Photos are available as singles and zips and they are pretty good at 1440x960.
Other minor issues are that some of the files wouldn’t queue up for downloading with a manager. But others would queue up. I have no explanation for this and can’t say exactly how many files fall into either camp. The other problem I had was that I fairly frequently got kicked off the site and had to log in again. Both of these are minor, but still frustrating. (Additionally, I always had to log in through the site I joined even though the network join in page was identical AND the network provided me with a link to sign in through the network. That was frustrating until I figured it out.)
So is this site worth the membership? My answer is a tentative yes. Tentative because there are few updates and much of the older material is low resolution, but on the plus side this is porn you won’t find elsewhere, and it is definitely some of the hardest stuff available. Add in the discounted price and I think this network is worth a look even if only for a one-time membership.
