This is one of those sites that is hard to judge on quality since it really varies for each film. I’ll give you a pro tip: head to the themes area (their categories) and find the ultra high definition videos if you’re looking for the best of the best.
They come in at 4K and look really nice. Most are closer to maybe 720p and might fall slightly below average overall. But they have a little bit of everything. Note that you can’t download the videos at all.
Their photo quality can be described as…. a number being divided by zero. It’s not possible! It doesn’t exist. They don’t have any photos here as they focus on offering videos, not pictures.
There’s definitely a decent amount to see here. I had a hard time getting a fully accurate count, but I’m going to guess that there are thousands of DVDs available, each with several scenes. So you’re talking 5,000+ DVDs, and 20,000+ scenes. It’s just a lot, okay?
I didn’t find any specific dates on the content here, but I’m guessing they update pretty often. Especially when you consider how large they are. I’d look for multiple updates per week on this one.
Navigation & User Interface
They have a pretty tall order here in terms of offering some significant navigation and search options since they have so much content. They do a decent job of covering the basics, but never get too advanced with it. You can browse by DVD or by scenes. They also have a good list of categories to browse through to help narrow things down.
Mobile Speed ( Scored 29 so really slow)
The mobile speed wasn’t the best, honestly. Scores came in on the low side, and while usability was fine enough on an iPhone, the videos and pages sometimes took a while to load. You can see the results of our NakedSword.com mobile page speed test here:
Desktop Speed (Scored 41, so slow)
They were slightly better when using an actual computer, but still about average at best. I couldn’t grab any download speeds, but there was enough hesitation when skipping around the videos to give me pause (no pun intended).

Price / Value
They definitely offer a lot of content here, which is a great place to be starting. The price is on the high side, however, and the content can be older at times, and is streaming only. I’d put the overall value a bit below average due to those drawbacks.
Naked Sword fulfilled its promise to be the Netflix of gay porn I’d say. But it’s more like the Netflix from several years ago than the one you might see in 2019 and beyond.
Their deal is that they offer a lot of content that’s streaming only. So it’s exactly what I expected in that regard. The content itself can vary since it comes from so many sources, which is both a good thing and a bad thing.
Sometimes, movies and scenes are older and not that great. Other times, they might be exclusive material, newer, and come in 4K. So it’s just a bit hit or miss with the content. There’s definitely stuff you’ll like, it just might take some time to find it.
All in all, Naked Sword is decent without being great. I think if they offered a discount (or just dropped the price), it’d be an easier sell for me. At $30, I expect a lot from a site. And while they offer a lot, and I think people will have a good time, I can’t help but think that they’re missing that one magic ingredient to really put them over the top.
