Digital Playground Review

Last Updated on:

Want some premium adult playtime?

Digital Playground have been one of the porn industry’s leading studios for the last three decades and continues to pump out premium content, even during lockdown!

With a reputation for creating lavish feature films, high-quality porn parodies and the sexiest scripted scenes, they work with almost 1,000 of the biggest names in the industry.

It’s estimated that Digital Playground accounts for almost 80% of all HD adult video sales and few studios can compete with their might.

We wanted to know more about their premium porn site and find out just what makes Digital Playground such a monster of porn. In this Digital Playground review, we’ll see exactly what has driven their explosive growth.

The Market Leaders in Porn

Based in Burbank, California, Digital Playground is one of the largest and most popular porn studios in the USA.

Founded in 1993, the company is now owned and operated by MindGeek; better known as the powerhouse behind Pornhub, RedTube and YouPorn.

Digital Playground was originally an innovator in the adult games market before founder (and multiple AVN award-winning director) Joone decided to start producing porn games as well as adult content for use on home computers.

Remember that this was a time when the internet was still in its infancy and porn was predominantly being sold for home consumption on DVD or VHS.

Their first adult games offered a virtual sex sim experience and players could interactively control the on-screen film action from a menu of scenes.

In 1998, DP released its first series of adult movies and chose to lead with a POV style format in which famous porn performers would talk directly to camera.

An intimate way to enjoy content and a precursor to the popularity of genres like JOI, one of their first releases Virtual Sex with Jenna is still one of the bestselling adult movies of all time.

The studio has continued to set the pace with new technology and was one of the first production houses to experiment with holographic porn (2003). They were also the first studio to produce a porn movie on HD when Island Fever 3 was released in 2004.

Over their 28 year history they’ve won more than 200 industry accolades including several XBiz Studio of the Year Awards as well as Best Adult Production Company (NightMoves) and multiple AVNs for their releases.

High Quality Adult Blockbuster Movies

Whilst most of their studio releases have been hard format releases on DVD and BluRay, Digital Playground operates its own premium porn website which features new releases and plenty of its back catalog of original content.

The studio has a reputation for their high quality productions and for innovating new and high-tech styles of filming.

As a result, their library of content includes the hottest web series, biggest movies and sexiest videos, all filmed in HD

In all the site gives members access to more than 3,400 hardcore scenes from blockbuster releases to exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of popular shoots.

Covering pretty much all genres, this includes everything from lesbian, teen and MILF to parody and POV.

They are best-known for their lavish feature length movies and scripted scenes.

Award Winning Sex Parodies

As well as pretty much cornering the general HD hardcore market, Digital Playground are well known these days for their parody titles.

These tongue-in-cheek (but highly NSFW) homages to celebrated blockbusters have earned them quite a few of their large award collection.

One of the most successful of these was Pirates (2005).

Obviously an homage to the much-loved Johnny Depp original, Pirates of the Caribbean (2003), this adult remake is one of the most lavish porn productions you’ll ever watch.

Filmed on location using a real pirate ship and some stunning CGI, the sex is just as good as the production standards.

With memorable scenes starring Evan Stone and Tommy Gunn along with Jesse Jane and Teagen Presley, the film cost a million dollars to make.

Digital Playground followed this smash up with Pirates II which cost $8 million and this is still considered the most expensive porno ever made.

Among some of their other popular porn parody titles, you can find:

  • American Whore Story (2020): Based, of course, on American Horror Story these edgy fetish thriller episodes star none other than Bonnie Rotten, Kleio Valentein and Skin Diamond.
  • Hand Solo (2018): One of several tributes to the Star Wars franchise and featuring Athena Palomino and Carly Rae this sci-fi action parody may take place in a galaxy not so far away but includes some scenes which are out of this world!
  • Top Guns (2011): Earning The studio an XBiz award for Best Parody Release of the Year 2012, this adult remake of the Tom Cruise classic is stuffed full of original lines. From “I feel the need for speed” and “Take me to bed, or lose me forever”  to “Your ego is writing checks your body can’t cash” the film was begging to be made into a porno.

Other Hollywood blockbusters that have been given the DP parody treatment include The Walking Dead, Kill Bill, Jessica Jones, Black Panther, Thor and Suicide Squad.

Yet it’s not just movies you can enjoy the XXX side of, DP has also produced some adult versions of popular console games and comics including Mortal Kombat and Archie.

Virtual Sex with the Hottest Porn Stars

Another genre for which Digital Playground is well known is their POV pornstar collection, known as Virtual Sex with….

Stars who have featured in these immersive adult flicks include:

  • Lacie Heart (2009)
  • Tera Patrick (2000)
  • Asia Carrera (1999)
  • Brian Banks (2004)
  • Rocky Roads (1998)
  • Shay Jordan (2007)

Though no longer being released, these are flagship movies for Digital Playground and were considered some of the best adult content of the day.

Never fear, this popular series has been replaced with all new series called Naked, a self-shot documentary style format, Digital Playground gets you up close and personal with the latest stars.

Digital Playground Review: Premium Porn Done Right

Few porn fans will be new to this premium studio and the chances are that you’ve probably already enjoyed some of their content. Whether this has been on DVD, VHS or a digital format, they are so just so prolific it would be hard to have avoided them.

If you have watched some Digital Playground content then you’ll already know just how high the standards are production wise. Most material filmed in the last 15-20 years is only available in HD but it’s more than just the quality of the definition which sets this studio apart.

Digital Playground only uses the hottest porn stars for its films.

Using only the best adult performers and accessing huge budgets to employ great directors, scenes are well scripted and use the best sets.

The results are hugely enjoyable and there is far more than just sex on offer.

With their feature films and parodies, you’ll find yourself thorough entertained by the whole production. Hell, you might not even skip forward to the sex!

It’s rare that we don’t have anything negative to say so we had to find something to throw in to this review, just to stay balanced.

So, as far as content on the site goes, we would have liked to have seen more of their earlier material and it’s a shame that just because some of those 1990s pornos aren’t HD they’ve been left on the shelf.

Aside from that, there really isn’t anything to carp about.
